I too have an indoor/ outdoor cat. I worry about him constantly but he is very persistent about going outside. He will cry and cry and cry in the middle of the night to be let out. He gets in face and knocks everything of my nightstand until I get up. How is it even possible to convert him to an indoor only lifestyle?

Got a pet that’s a picky eater? Has dandruff or a dull coat? Food allergies or sensitivities? Feeding your dog or cat the right premium-quality food can be the solution to many issues.When you feel ready to move on, the next step is to give Daphne and Felix supervised access to each other. That means, hang out with them in a room where you can intervene if necessary, but don't intervene unless absolutely necessary. Give them a chance to work things out in their own way. If Felix is mostly respectful and curious, let him sniff and investigate. If he's rambunctious, squirt him with water a few times. Try not to let him know that it's you doing the squirting, or he will associate it with you instead of with the behavior. The water should come as an unpleasant surprise, or, more technically, an environmental reprimand. If you find you're resorting to the water-pistol frequently, that means you've moved ahead too soon. Go back to the cage phase. Eventually, most rabbits and cats get used to each other. It's just a matter of time and, in some cases, supervision.This phase may take days, weeks, or even months, depending on the animals' personalities. Don't rush things. It's much better to go too slowly and succeed than to push it and stress Daphne or have to scold Felix. Scolding is the least effective method of feline education. It usually teaches the cat (a) wait till the humans are away and then torment the rabbit to your heart's content or (b) rabbit=scolding, which is not a good way to begin a friendship.New site offers tips and support for hiking and exploring the great outdoors with your kitty.
