Why cats should not roam freely

tabby cat

This letter to the editor, published in the Salt Lake Tribune, offers a great summary of reasons why cats should not be allowed to roam freely.

The author is a veterinarian.

Although the author suggests keeping cats indoors, or in a catio, we would also encourage cat owners to consider a containment system that allows their pet to explore a larger outdoor area.

And for trips farther afield, why not train your cat to walk on a leash? Many cats do this quite happily.
