Good morning all! Last week I became the proud owner of a one year old black Persian I named "Spook". I think she was originally owned by a kitty-mill which did not want her anymore because she had one baby (stillborn) in her first attempt at motherhood. The pet shop was giving her away! I have three dogs and was worried about that but they are all getting along famously. She is such a wonderful cat. I have cats in the past when my kids were little but that has been some time ago, so I need this forum to brush up. I live on 3 acres of wooded land with about 2 acres being fenced in with basic chain link fence. Next to my house and adjacent to the fence is an inclosed chicken pen for 35 assorted chickens. My question is this: Can I let Spook out? Will she climb the fence? I live near a rather busy street. I have heard that Persians don't climb like others do. The fence to the chicken pen is 12' high with barbed wire at top. Would she climb that and get into the chicken pen?. Or would she be more content with being an inside only cat? So many wonderful adventures are outside but her safety and that of the chickens as well is most important. Thanks for any advice!
