Hi all! I've been lurking around here for a long time and have found a lot of very useful info. I now have a problem with one of my cats that I'm not sure how to handle. I have had indoor house cats all my life and they have always been perfectly happy this way. They were always just happy to sit in a window and look outside. About two years ago we adopted two little kittens from a shelter. They are great cats and we love them to death but one of them is just not happy being an indoor cat. He tries to run out the door every time it's opened and has even knocked a screen out of a window a couple times. I guess my question is, if I let him go outside, will he come back and is there anything I should do before letting him out? He is all up to date on shots and has all his claws. I know this might sound silly but if something happened to him I would be devastated and the kids would be crushed. I'm just worried that, since he's never really been outside, he won't know what to do. We live in a pretty rural area, if that makes a difference. Thanks for any advise.
