Cats that are kept inside can have a long live. This is because they are not exposed to disease and danger. Being cleaner and free of parasite means better health for your cat and your family. This is particularly good for your children.
However, although keeping cat indoors is safer, it may not be suitable for all cats. Some drawbacks include:
Cats that are totally kept indoors have higher tendencies of inappropriate soiling, indoor markings and other psychological issues.
Cats who don't need to hunt will become lazy and if they over eat, they will become fat. Boredom can lead your cat to eat more.
Cleaning their shit :P will be more often. Enough said.
Since they are accustomed to their static environment. They tend to resist and also scared of your friends.
If your cat has never leave your home, you must make sure there are no ways that the cat can leave to the outdoor environment. This can be deadly as they dont have the skills and not street savvy to survive. They might also don't know how to find their way home.
