outdoor cat?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was wondering about the care of an outdoor(primary cat) will be spayed/neutered and have full shots.I can not have any cats where i am at but would like an outdoor friendly one that i can provide full care too.
What do i need for a full outdoor cat?

My cats are indoor/outdoor and 2 of them spend 90% outside. They are all fixed and have regular vet visits so they are parasite free and more protected healthwise than a homeless stray/feral.
I leave fresh water for my outdoor cats and feed them a regular breakfast everyday. I do not leave food or food dishes out for them but I do give them a bowl of treats each afternoon and evening. These "meal times" are sometimes outside and sometimes inside the house. It's up to them really. Also, at these times I check for anything out of the ordinary.
That's about it.

I forgot to say that I live in the tropics, so I have no weather concerns except during the rainy season. My outsiders have a place with a roof and soft flooring (wood) to keep dry and cool.
You may have to provide a proper shelter to protect your outdoor kitty from bad weather.

I've got outdoors farm kitties.

First thing you must make sure it is safe from cars, people, animals, etc.

It's cold here, so I have a heated water bowl. I feed them 2x a day or more, both wet & dry. They are vetted, fixed, etc.

Neutered or spayed and complete set of shots, including rabies and tested for FELV and FIP. And probably periodic worming by the vet. Also need to have a flea treament to use.
