My cat had been going indoors and out at night for almost a year now, but November 28 I realized she wasn't in my bedroom, I leave my window open so she could jump in and out. So I realized this and the panic began. Long story short she was outside all morning and came back at night which was the first time she'd done this. She no doubt made an outside cat friend(s) and spent all day outside. My dilemma comes from how she is currently acting she is pacing back and forth from the backdoor to the window and just sitting waiting to be let out, it hurts to see because she is visibly upset, this along with her inability to focus on playing with me before just diverting to the window or backdoor is making me feel like a monster. I want her to be happy but she will not survive outside for long dogs and coyotes are my main concern where I live. Anyways I'm happy she came back but now feel as bad as I did when she was gone now that I'm forcing her to stay inside and I'm afraid she won't make the adjustment to indoor only.
