My cat, Waffles, is a year old (will be 2 in April). I rescued his mother when she was pregnant and he was born in my house. He's well socialized, loves everyone and is just a great cat. I moved out of the house when he was 7 months old and he stayed with my mother for a few months. About 6 months ago, I brought him here to live with me. I live on a farm now with 15 acres and a big barn. Waffle Cat has ALWAYS been an indoor cat and never went outside a day in his life. Well, about a week ago I went outside and he really wanted to follow me. I let him go out on the porch and he just sat there looking around. I let him explore a little with me watching closely and then took him back in about 20 minutes later. I guess that was where I made a mistake because now he wants out ALL the time and won't stay in. He howls and paces and tries to throw himself against the window or tear up the screen to get out. He stays close when he's outside, never wanders off or anything. But I feel like a bad mommy for him being outside. He loves it though, but I'm still worried about him. Any suggestions?
