    Kittens For Sale: Indoors Or Outdoors?

    Articlegeneral cat adviceFriday 20 May 2011

    When you are considering buying kittens for sale, there are a number of big decisions you should make, one of which is whether you allow the kittens to have an outdoor life, a completely indoor life, or a mixture of the two. There are advantages and disadvantages with regards to cat health as both methods of keeping kittens pose possible hazards. Read this guide to help you when deciding whether to keep your kittens for sale as indoor or outdoor cats.


    Keeping Kittens Inside


    • Some kittens for sale, especially some pedigree varieties do not live very well outside and an inside life is much better for cat health. Indoor kittens are not exposed to a lot hazards that an outdoor cat would be. When keeping kittens (and then cats) outside, they are exposed to dangers such as traffic, other animals (dogs & cats), fleas and ticks and of course, the hazard of getting stuck in a tree.


    • Another problem with allowing kittens and cats to go outside is that they may become scared from things such as fireworks or even the neighbour’s dog and run away.


    • Cat health is one of the main reasons that people choose to keep their kittens and cats inside. Indoor cats certainly have fewer hazards that they have to contend with but kittens for sale can develop behavioural problems from not being able to go outside. Territory marking, scratching or even aggressiveness is certainly possible, as is obesity due to lack of exercise.


    • Kittens for sale that are destined for an indoor life also will lose out on the opportunities to engage in their natural behaviour of hunting. Kittens that are kept inside may also lose out on the socialisation with other cats that will occur and can become overly fearful of other cats or the outside world.]


    • Indoor kittens will require various cat accessories such as a litter tray to use, and various toys to keep themselves active. You can search for a wide variety of cat accessories for sale right here on Kitten Ads.
