New here, too!

Now that I found the right forum, I can copy and paste my introduction in the right place
Hi everyone! I am Gracie37, and I have a 5 yr old orange tabby named Oliver. He is my sweet boy whom we have owned since he was just 6 weeks old.
Olly used to be an outdoor cat as he one day snuck out of the apt we lived in and found outside was much more fun than inside. There was alot more opportunity to chase after prey (he was nicknamed Ozzy at one point for finding a bunny rabbit nest and biting their heards off!) and use the whole yard as his litter box
Then we moved here to Virginia from the New Jersey apartment, into a townhouse, deciding Oliver needed to stay indoors. Alot more room to play indoors than before. Besisdes, too late to claim any territory here against rival cats and he is not familiar with the area. For a while he was pretty good about avoiding the outdoors, but now we are finding he knows outside has something there he wants So we have to be quick about it.
We have also gone through 3 types of litterboxes since he was used to doing his business outdoors. We finally bought the boodadome so he avoids the wall and gets it in the box. He is a big cat, so it wasn't easy.
So I could really use alot of help in helping him as we find things to deter him from the outdoors and teach him to be an indoor pet
