Your question was cut off, but please allow me to comment anyway. Even though you have a fence, unfortunately it won't keep things that could harm your cats OUT. A cat or other creature with claws could easily climb your fence or even dig under and get into your yard. Your cats will not have any way to defend themselves. Since cats cannot distinguish back yard from front, if they want to get out badly enough, they may find their way out the front as well. Once cats get a taste of the outdoors, it's difficult to convince them that inside is more fun. But, if you fear for the safety of your cats, you do need to find a way to keep them indoors. There are also "cat porches" made of screen and wood where your cats can be "outside" but are safe.
