    My two (Burmese and ragdoll) are both indoor cats. We have let them out with us for a walk around the back yard, it's fenced 6ft.
    They try to get out sometimes and the Burmese cries if we don't let him come out and play when the kids do.
    I don't want them stolen or attacked by dogs or run over.
    Playing with them a lot will keep them busy and less worried about outside.
    A cat run would be great if you have a nice back yard. We have no trees for shade and I think my Burmese would chew and climb a cat run, aside from I don't have about $500 upward spare for the cats!

    Our two cats have a large catmax netting enclosure off the side of the house. Goes from guttering of house to the fence, so about 14m x 3m. Before we had this house I took them out on a harness. One of them could death roll out of it so be careful!

    I would definitely keep them in an enclosed area at all times. We have 2 Burmese girls. We give them some outdoor time in an enclosure during the day & at night lock them inside with us. We have found that as long as they have a good view, dedicated playtime & lots of vertical climbing/ lounging space they are very happy & content inside.
    Please don't tempt fate. We learnt the hard way with a previous kitten. Tragically he never made it home on his first day out. It broke my heart. It was 4years ago & I still well up thinking about it.
    Keep your kitty safe & keep him in an enclosed area. All the best.

    Totally normal.

    When my cats were younger we took them outside on harnesses. Now they're older we occasionally let them outside with supervision. I wouldn't do this with a kitten. Our yard is well enclosed. One cat would wander off I think but she's pretty obedient, the other is too old/too much of a scaredy cat to wander off. Both usually just like to chew on grass and lie around.

    What about those pipe / roller things that go above the fence line?

    Omg he is gorgeous! Adorable.

    My girl is an inside only cat. She doesn't have a problem with it. Used to try to get out but she doesn't try anymore. If we left a door open she would think about it. We used to have an enclosed outdoor area for her at a previous house but we don't here and she doesn't seem to mind.

    We have a pure bread ragdoll kitten and he always wants to out! I was told ragdolls would be quiet happy to sit at the window and watch, which he is until I go outside with the kids. Might be a kitten thing though. But he comes out on his harness and lead and loves it. IMG_1486589932.165878.jpg

    That last photo he's still got his harness on I think the fluff is just hiding it
