When I first owned cats, I let them go outside. They didn't live long. Spiteful, evil people enjoy doing harm to the lovely creatures. In the past 20 years, I've kept them indoors. I let them out on the back porch, which is screened. The indoor cats all became senior citizens. Some have already passed and one died this year at 17 years of age. I have two seniors left, and they are quite spry. They're both 17 years of age also. At one time, I had six seniors, but most of them have passed. The average life span of a cat is ten years old.

I really don't know the answer. I've pondered this question and decided that I wanted more time with my cats. I want them to have a good life, and I keep them inside.

My mother has outside cats, and one neighbor grabbed one of them. He was going to give it away to the SPCA. Another neighbor asked him to please release the cat so that it could go home. I still feel sorrow at the thought of the poor animal's possible fate at the SPCA.

Regards,

Levka.
