Are your cats indoor or outdoor cats and why???? I have 7 cats, and only let one outside on a lead while I am there...

Also, I live up in a fourth floor apartment, so there would really be no way for them to get in and out (I could take them down, but how would they let me know when they wanted in?), even if it wasn't so dangerous. That said, even if I lived in a rural area without traffic, I still wouldn't let them out unsupervised - there are just too many dangers, and I would be much too afraid of all the things that could happen to them.
