When you ask cat owners about letting their cats play outdoors you will hear many different opinions in both directions on this subject. Some people believe the outside world is far too dangerous for our furry felines while others believe that cats belong outdoors because it is their natural habitat.
In my opinion, the answer is probably more based on your personal experience and where you live to determine if your cat should stay indoors or play outside as well. When you know the right answer, you can protect your furry friends and make their lives more comfortable. And the story today will be a perfect example that can prove that pet parents would do anything for his beloved companions to have a safe and happy life.
The Brooks-Joiner family owns three indoor cats, 16-year-old Luna and two four-year-old cats named Daisy and Marvel. They are living a very comfortable life at their house in Ontario, Canada. Although they are indoor cats, they always want to explore the outside world. However, their parents were nervous about letting them out because of living near a very busy road.
So, their dad Alex built a treehouse in order to they could safely enjoy the outdoors. In an interview with Unilad, Alex’s daughter, Hadley said, “My dad fully built it by himself and the short answer as to why is for safety. Both for the safety of our cats and for the safety of the small bird population. We live in the downtown portion of our city so our road is getting busier every year and there are lots of creatures like foxes and coyotes that could harm them.”
When Hadley shared her dad’s cat masterpiece on Reddit, it is going viral and takes the Internet by storm because of the family’s devotion to their cats. Although Alex’s project isn’t finished yet due to expanding the treehouse, the cats are so happy and can be safe when playing outside.
Hadley told Unilad: “When we first let them into the complete cation, Daisy was pretty nervous but was quick to feel comfortable and now she loves it. They all do, especially Daisy and Marvel. Both of them are in it at least once a day. We love it too! We think it’s perfect. They’re a part of our family and you always want your family to be safe. The catio ensures that they are safe! It’s also quite amusing to watch them in it.”
