I want to go outside soooo bad! I look out the window all day and when mommy or daddy try to leave i want to too! I try to run out a couple of times but they always catch me. Daddy says once they get a leash for me he is scared i will run out the door without my leash. I have never been outside unless they hold me. How do I get rid of the urge to run out? Is it ok for daddy to buy me a leash or will that make me run out without my leash? I am over a year old now and only recently have tried to go out.

hey hun... I'm with you on wanting to go out also... what my mom did is she made a harness for me... and hooks me to the retractable leashes.... so this way I can sit outside and yet roam just a bit. so yeah have your mom and dad get you a harness... I'm a indoor cat but am allowed to be outdoors when my mom is outside... them lizards love to tease me by the window....
