Happy Easter to you, too, Phil!
Well, that story was from Germany. I know in the UK, people are chastised for making cats stay indoors! Maybe there's more animal cruelty in our country?
Cats should be kept indoors for their own safety. If you have lots of land away from busy streets, that's another story. Some cats have always lived outdoors and cannot adjust to being indoors.
And if cats are outside in the US, they are blamed for killing birds (not all do), which is their *nature*. Can't win.
I like how the comment section after the article shammed them for letting their cats outside since all animals long to go outdoors its part of their nature and it would be cruel
to not allow them the opportunity.
