Okay, Rascal has been wanting to go outside for a long time. Sometimes, some one would leave the window open in the bathroom and Rascal would escape. I usually find him in the backyard. I have been taking him outside without the harness and leash and he would wander around the backyard and sniff and chase the bees and stuff. I go with him to make sure he dosen't escape. He has his ID tags and everything but I really don't feel comfortable if he goes outside without me. But after a while of being outside and I take him back in, he would howl and meow to be let out again. And I feel guilty but I don't want him to get hurt. But he wants to be outside! I thought neutering him would help with his urge to roam, but he practically begs me. I play with him a lot when I am home so he won't get bored, but he loses interest. What can I do to minimize his desire to go outside? What are his chances of coming back to me if he goes outside? I am just too tempted.
