I have a kittie (saved from death at age 4 weeks through the Humane Society), so the kitten had no mother and siblings to speak of... I am it. I also have a dog. The cat and the dog love each other and are both primarily indoor animals but I am concerned that when the dog goes out (and she has learned to open the door), the cat will follow (now 14 weeks old). How can I allow the kitten out such that she stays with us (or at least with the dog) and does not leave the yard? I don't want to put her in a cage, nor can I fence with corrugated material because the yard is large and the tree branches hang out of the yard.
Can an indoor cat "sometimes" spend time outdoors with us and not disappear out of sight?
