How can I seize my cat to stay around?
My cat is a 'indoor-outdoor' cat, and she recently got hit by a car, so she's if truth be told at the vet now getting surgery, but, when she comes back, we need to hold on to her around.
I know we should keep her in the house, which we will try to do, but no doubt someone will accidentally agree to her out, so, what backup plan should we have?
[don't say shock collars, they don't work on cats!]
What should we do?
return with gates and keep her in one room and bring notes and write do not let cat out and put them on all the doors and subsequent to the gates.
Just don't consent to her out! Put a baby gate at the door to prevent door dashing. You can also put empty soda can inside and outside the door. As you're walking in shake the can to scare her wager on and same when you leave.
I hope your cat recovers quickly. This post is only further that cats should NOT be allowed to free roam.
If your cat isn't fixed yet, do so and they will stay near the house. Also try locking them in near special doors. Or offer treats to call her back into the house.
My suggestion is to build a fence if you have a house.
Or don't permit your cat out. My cat is a strictly indoor cat. He likes it that way though, is afraid of outdoors. Maybe the accident will formulate your cat wish to stay indoors too.
What about a room that is sheltered but she can see outdoors... like a sun room or porch?
You really don't have to let her out... and whether you put your foot in the door first... it will block her.
If she is not spayed, get it done. Talk to all in the ethnic group and make sure the cat stays in.
One thing that you could do is when she gets out of the house, only get her and bring her back in. Thats how you preserve an indoor cat. She will try to ecscape, but if you really want her as an indoor cat, it's worth it. Trust me, I know. I have one.
Another choice is the obvious choice. Love her alot and nurture her about 2 times a day. As long as you keep giving her attention and she other has access to food, then she will stick around.

If you don't want to make her all indoor cat - then train to a harness/leash or build/buy a cat storage area where she will be a lot safer.
