Well I totally agree. First off I am one of those who believe that cats do not NEED to go outside. The window is a giant TV. But I do not understand those who put the cats out for days/hours on end to roam freely. Even my parents who I have said Max does NOT need to go out, put him on a leash keeping him within the confines of the yard, and he is probably not outside for more than an hour or two at a time.
