Q: Should cats be let outside?

A: No. It isn’t safe for cats to be outside unattended, as people, cars, dogs, or other animals can injure/kill cats. If your cat isn’t spayed or neutered, they will make more kittens, which means more homeless cats getting euthanized at shelters. If your feline loves the great outdoors, get it a special cat pen or a cat harness.
