It has been observed that people adopt cats or pets with the thoughts in mind that they will be able to raise them without considering where they are going to stay; indoor or outdoor. You have to consider this factor as raising cats or dogs outside, is not at all safe. It is very important for your pets to access your home.
1. Why pets love to stay outside?
Every animal loves to stay outside. This is because of the reason that it gives them the feeling to stay in their natural habitats and environment. They feel closer to their homes and other animals. Cats can be seen climbing trees and enjoy hiding in shrubs. Likewise, dogs enjoy barking all the time at people, other dogs and even neighbors.
However, you must be aware of the fact that it is not safe to keep them outside of the houses. In order to give them some time outside your homes, you can take dogs outside for walks and allow them to play in your lawns or backyards. For cats, you can allow them to run and jump inside your house so that they can have fun in their own ways. You can also keep them at a place from where they can see the birds flying.
2. Staying outside can be dangerous for pets
Never allow your pet to stay outside for a long time and also make sure that they are not alone for more than a few minutes. For cats, there is always a danger from other dogs roaming outside your home. These animals can fight with other animals and can harm each other. Your pet can get injuries and may get infected. It is highly recommended to keep an eye on your animal when they are playing outside.
It has been seen that cats and dogs have dangers from cars and other people. If the dog is left free for some time, he may harm children or children may start teasing him. In this scenario, your dog can turn wild and bite the children. You may land in a mess with other people because of this reason.
Keeping them indoors will prevent them from getting infected from ticks, flea and heartworms because they will get these problems easily if they stay out for a long time.
Now, you can see yourself that the pets that stay indoors live longer, healthier and better life than other pets. You can care for them in a better manner.
