I am looking for some advice. I have a cat that I have been taking care of since the beginning of the year that was abondoned by some one in my neighborhood. She presumably had been living as a stray for awhile when I started to take care of her. I stqarted feeding her outside adn enventually she started spening time inside when I was home and sometimes at night. She's become very close to me and knows that she has a home here. The past week though I had to move. I decided to take her with me. I put her in cage and let her loose inside the new place. She spent the better half a the first few days under the bed. I subsequently have learned that she can use a litter box so we're o.k. there. The problem is that I want her to be primarily an outdoor kitty. She has been very reluctant to go outside. I am trying to progress her slowly but there is a cat in the neighborhood that keeps comng around and they have hissing fights. She's spent some time marking her territory but just doesn't feel at home outside I guess. I keep having to force her outside. I am thinking of trying some tough love and just leaving her outside whether she likes it or not. Does anyone have any advice on adjusting my kitty to her new home outdoors?
