Should House Cats Go Outside?

Like most animals, cats love the outdoors. They love climbing, scratching, feeling the wind blow through their whiskers, feeling the sunshine in their fur, and taking in the sights, sounds, and smells. Because of this, many cat owners wonder, Should house cats go outside

The answer is no. Cats are far safer inside because there are countless dangers out in the world for them and you.

At VistaGato, we are the same folks who created the smash-hit DogLoo, and our top priority is your pet’s safety and wellness. Our new, cutting-edge feline lifestyle product, the VistaGato cat window box, enables cats to get all the outdoor stimulation they need to live long happy lives from the comfort and security of your home. 

Why Shouldn’t House Cats Go Outside?

For your precious pet, danger lurks outside, so understanding these risks is essential. An indoor cat’s lifespan is typically several years longer than an outdoor cat’s lifespan. 

Outside of the safety of your home, busy streets with speeding cars (and negligent drivers), encounters with wildlife, exposure to disease, exposure to the elements, disease, and malicious humans pose a severe threat the minute your kitty steps paw outdoors. 

It is also dangerous for you and your family because they can bring parasites, ticks, fleas, other pests, and diseases into your home. Your cat can damage the environment, wreak havoc in your neighbor’s garden, and kill wildlife when roaming outside as well.

This is where a catio or outdoor enclosure comes in!

With a catio, you can give them the enrichment, and entertainment they desperately seek from the safety of the inside. The VistaGato cat window box is the best of both worlds and attaches securely to nearly all vertical windows 

The VistaGato provides them with full panoramic views of the great outdoors. In doing so, you provide them with a quiet and stress-free getaway where they can enjoy all the sights, sounds, smells, and sunshine of the outdoors from the safety of inside your house.
