So also my neighborhood did said to me these two alaways now what to do when they go out like she followed and see what they do. They near a raccon that was eating something they both look they want it so they went up to it. One main coon was looking at the raccoon to distract it then the other went to get that food it was a mouse or rat they said because they saw a tail moving. The one that took it ran and the other ran away from the raccoon they both said we wish we took a video crama for that great idea and team work that was. The raccoon was looking for the rat or mouse so it went into the garbage can took look for more food. Then they were looking for their cats again but they couldn't find them so they went home and there were sharing the mouse or rat together.

It doesn't matter if cats have all their claws and teeth, they are still not safe outside and anyone who truly cares about them wouldn't force them to survive on their own. There are predators that cats cannot defend against, the worst being humans. Large owls and hawks are strong enough to carry off a cat. Wildlife such as coyotes, mountain lions, and bob cats frequently come into the cities now because we have destroyed their natural habitat. Outdoor cats fall victim to predation regularly - even those who are feral and have lived on their own their entire lives. Obviously you aren't going to take the advice of anyone here anyway, so why bother to keep on posting the same questions? This is a site full of people who work rescue to get pets off the streets and people who love animals enough to welcome them into their homes to keep them safe and make them feel loved. You're not going to get the answer you're looking for here.

I personally think you're yanking our chain and just posting these questions to get a rise out of people who would never condone getting a cat just to let it live outside on its own.

I am not sure what you are asking but I think cats are fine outside as long as they are on a leash in an inclosure or they are supervised, my dad's parents cat Niody she got eaten by cyotes and my alley cat Biff got ran over by a car and my Maine coon Lowrence who liked the outdoors left one day and never came back I have no idea what happened to him I wonder about him every day then there was the case with Charlie the neighbors cat they moved out and left him behind the house was empty and they were not coming by and feeding him I was the one feeding him and taking care of him then they showed up outta nowhere when I had taken him to be nuetered they clipped his ear cause it was a place for feral cats but they fixed him for free it turned out he was already fixed but he had taken storm our kitten under the car and had tried to mate with her which was wierd we found storm a new home and she got spayed before anything happened but the problem was when the owners showed up again they were just working on the house they were gonna rent it out but even though they were not feeding him and they had abonded him they took intrest again when they saw his ear was clipped they were so mad this made me mad I had been taking care of him and they freak out because his ear was clipped and that's when they decided to take him to the new house and realized oh yeah we left our cat here when we moved stuff like this happens Oatmeals father midnight reverted to a feral cat when he was abondend Oatmeal we found a home for but bad things happen to cats outside without supervision.
