    It’s nice if the can safely get outside and get some fresh air. Beautiful cats…and flowers.

    You’re so lucky they stay nearby. Mine run away but maybe it’s because he knows he’s not supposed to be out. My first cat loved to go out with a leash but my Scooter is afraid of the leash. When in FL I have sgreened patios but here in ME he is stuck inside. We have to be sure he doesn’t run out. He likes sitting in the windows.

    My human says she does not trust us outside! Plus, in neighborhoods not far from here, my human heard of coyotes actually snatching pets right in front of their humans! So we are stuck inside.

      Good idea. Stay safe. We have an isolated backyard that’s pretty safe. Just a few roaming dogs that we now have finally gotten under control so they stay home.

  4. Looks like they are having a great time! I don’t let my gang outside either, but I do have a couple of leashes and harness to take them out on. Only one of them likes it though. They others are scaredy cats and just want to go right back inside. MOL! Thanks for stopping by our blog!

      I’m pretty isolated, and the kitties seem to stay pretty much in the backyard, so it works here. However, I have 2 that are inside all the time.

    I would LOVE to do this, however, am afraid that once I allow the kitties out, especially the youngest of the group (a male) I will forever be watching every time I go outside, for any reason. What I would love is a cat enclosure on my deck, I would have to pick them up, and put them in it, I don’t see how I could “connect” it to the sliding door, if I am to go out on the deck too.I do open up the door to our deck on nice days, and leave it open all day/evening, but there is a screen door that is the barrier to the outside. I love for all three of them to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the outside!

      I use treats as bribery when I’m going out, and it’s not time for supervised time outside. It usually works, but sometimes I’m running after one of them and taking him back inside. I never let Paws out with that long hair till he became sick. Then, I figured he might as well enjoy being a cat, and letting him go outside was one way of giving him a little bit more quality of life.

  6. Beautiful pictures, the kids look like they are really enjoying their time outside 🙂

      They love running through the grass. It’s so nice to see them get some fresh air, but only supervised. There’s too many scarey things out there, even in a backyard, not to be there, to protect them.

    I’m not a cat owner, but as a bird lover I also disapprove of free-roaming cats. Usually I advocate keeping kitties indoors, but sounds like you have found a way to let your cats get outside safely in your own yard. Enclosures make sense, especially if the owner will take the time to supervise like you do. PS> pretty flowers!!
