One of my co-workers wants two of the kittens when they are weaned. I will be having them fixed before they go to homes but I wanted to know if she planned on keeping them inside. She has a dog and a doggie door so they will get out. I know that she lives in a not so great neighborhood so that worries me. I personally believe pets should not roam outdoors when you live in a city like ours. If you live on my side of town, we have larger lots but the coyotes roam at night. If you live in the older parts of town, the homes are so close together that a cat can only go from one yard to the next and a lot of people might not be "cat" people. Also, I hear news about people torturing stray animals all the time. In many other ways, this family will be a great home for kittens. They love animals and I have known her to keep and care for all of the pets she's had over the years but I can't bear the thought of her coming to work and telling me that a cat has not returned home someday. Should I refuse to give her a kitten at all?
