What cats need, besides healthy food, water, safe shelter, the freedom to express normal behaviour & veterinary care is sufficient stimulation and exercise to keep them happy, and those can be provided anywhere. There are lots of healthy alternatives to ensure your cat gets enough, and plenty of resources to help you. Fresh air solutions include cat enclosures, ‘catios’, or walking them with a harness. Play is a natural substitute for hunting, and toys, window perches, cat tv and exercise all help provide cats with ample stimulation.
