It's just that my dad lets our cats outside and I get upset about it, because we live on a busy street.
and my mom agrees with it. I know there's nothing I can do, but keep them inside when I am around.
I don't let them outside at all, PERIOD. I just don't want one of them ending up dead, just because my parents let them outside.
I know they grew up with their cats outside and think it's okay, although I understand that and I have told them to please not let them outside. I understand this is their house, too and I have to abide by their rules, but I just don't want my boys ending up dead someday. I would seriously die if they got hit by a car or poisoned. My dogs don't get to go outside by themselves at all, I am out there with them, just because I simply don't trust the weirdos around here period. I know I am paranoid when it comes to my furbabies, but I have to look out for them, plus they depend on me and I would NEVER want them to get hurt.
My parents do care about my cats, but I just wish they'd understand how bad it is to let them outside.
They are much safer and happier inside. I am sorry that was long.
