I just adopted a 5 month old kitten. He is VERY curious about the outdoors. He sees my dogs go out and he tries to door dash. We also have a dog door and he has been showing interest in it. My parents refuse to get rid of the dog door. Should I take him on walks and/or let him in my backyard on a leash? I have a privacy fence. Or, do you think that will encourage him to slip out the dog door unleashed? I lost my 12 year old tabby early December because he was an indoor/outdoor cat and I think the stress that puts on their bodies is what caused him to have rapidly progressive kidney disease. I don’t want this new little guy to have the same issues. I’m moving out in a year or two and I’ll take him with me and he’d be an indoor cat there.
