Your cat is used to the area surrounding your house. When you let them out in a foreign area, they'll be really confused and most likely try running away in order to find their old stomping ground. Giving them at least a couple weeks of nidoor-only, or supervised outdoor will let them get used to the fact that they're living in a new area.Originally Posted by dragonsandcats
I have always been taught to have a cat stay in a new house for 2 weeks before being let outside. if you let them out, they run away. Why is this? just curious.
