Back in October I adopted my first cat ever, Wheatley. He is ten months old now and an incredibly smart and adventurous little bugger (seriously, he keeps finding ways to get into the ceiling).
With the warm weather quickly approaching, I’m getting more and more concerned about him accidentally getting out or figuring out how the screen door works. Especially since I live in the country, so it is likely he could get lost or attacked by a coyote. Then I’ll be moving to Ottawa in the fall and since I don’t know if they have any by-laws in place about outdoor cats, I don’t want him to get used to being able to go outside whenever he wants.
I’ve looked online and found dozens of reasons why you should consider keeping your cat indoors during the summer, but no suggestions on how to do that. Does anyone have any suggestions or hacks for keeping curious creatures inside? Particularly when it comes to screen doors. -Morgan
