I am not sure what you mean by alone? We have a cat fence for our entire back yard - it is a privacy fence with a special top made to keep cats safely inside. So my cats are able to be inside and out in a safe and secure environment. If your question is, is he caged, the answer is no - none of my cats are ever caged. I only have one whole male and that is Merlot, and he will soon be neutered. I have one whole female Aby and by the time her kittens are old enough to leave her, Merlot should be neutered - he just has one more little job to do for Frannie before he goes to the vet. Honey will be bred again, but by another male. Now, even though I stated my cats are never caged, that is not is not completely true because Honey is caged with her kittens because they are safer that way - they will stay caged until they are about 6 or 7 weeks old and then they will be transferred to the computer room where they will run free with their mom.
