Most kittens can easily be trained to stay indoors, or go outside only with supervision, just by making sure they have enough stimulation. Cats that are used to going outdoors are trickier, but they too can be retrained. Here are some ideas about how to enrich your cat’s life so it’s content without free-roam, a resource to help you make the transition and a resource about safe outdoor options.
Take the pledge to show your commitment to keeping your cat safe from the dangers of free-roam. By not letting your cat outdoors unsupervised, you extend your cat’s lifespan, reduce vet bills, and help keep birds safer. If you have more than one cat, you can pledge for each of them.
We need volunteers to work at the local, regional or national level to write guest blogs, distribute literature in their communities, encourage organizations to join our campaign as partners, and give presentations at events, schools and clubs about the importance of keeping cats safe & saving bird lives. If you’d like to help, download our call for volunteers and let us know what interests you. By volunteering you can:
• Share your passion for cats, birds, nature and the environment
• Learn and gain practical experience
• Make a difference in your community
We can’t do it without you! Donate in support of our efforts to improve the lives of both cats and birds.
