|As my mother and I were driving home from McDonald's the other day, we were a street away from our house and my mother saw something on the side of the road. I wasn't really paying attention, but I saw something laying there, too.
She quickly went around it and then her face got a disgusted look on. It had been a cat that had been ran over, a black cat. She said it was ran over badly, too. (And I remember seeing red)
Then we got in to a discussion about cats being outside. I told her that I wouldn't trust Mama'Kitty being an outside cat where we live, but I'm ok her being an outside cat at my grandparent's house. There, she has more room to run around and won't have such an urge to explore. (My grandparent's live on an acre)
I also told her how whenever we went over there last time Mama'Kitty lived there, she would follow me outside of the property. But she would NOT step a foot on to the road.
For all those with an outside cat -- do they know how to stay on your property? Or do they explore beyond it?
