Life for cats is simply safer indoors. For their own benefit and for the benefit of the communities where they live, owned cats should not be allowed to roam freely. Stray dogs, fox, coyotes, and cars are threats to free roaming cats in Delta County. And cats are a significant threat to song birds.
Enrich your indoor environment for your cat by rotating toys so they don’t get bored. You can hide food treats for them to find. Create window perches so kitty has a view. If your cat has never wandered in the neighborhood, she won’t know that she is missing anything. Our own romantic view of a cat’s life outside isn’t very realistic. Keep your kitty safe. Cats on Deck is one organization that sells wonderful, safe window boxes and rooms for kitties.
