If you are sure that her elimination issue is just because she wants out and not a medical issue, then you need to make her indoor environment so great she doesn’t want to leave. Does she have access to windows? A scratching post? Toys? Her own space – like a pet bed? Cats that are highly motivated to go outside may end up finding a way – but I agree that domesticated cats belong indoors. Has she been spayed? I would start by modifying her space and see if it becomes more enticing – and maybe instill some regular play time – wear her out! Discourage her when she gets near the door with a loud NO! Hopefully she will learn that she has pawparents that care about her wellbeing and becomes content with being at home. Good luck.
