I adopted an elderly cat. She is probably close to 18 years old. Shes very healthy considering her age. She has arthritis and some stomach difficulties, but has a very healthy appetite(harrasing me right now). She lived at a friends house for most of those years. Due to a new dog they could not offer her a very pleasant place to stay. She was mostly an outdoor cat and a very good hunter. Im house sitting for a week at this very home in the near future. I want her to get some sunshine, and fresh air. She is deprived of this at her present home. I feel guilty denying her the outdoors, but its too dangerous for an old cat in this area. I want to bring her along and let her spend some time hunting and laying in the sun. I realize this could be dangerous for her, and I dont want any harm to come to her. Would the benefits outweigh the stress she would experience initially ? I'd be curious to hear any opinions.
