Having a cat with a dog door

Have you tried keeping your cat in a box?

don’t know if she made it over the 5 foot wood fence.

It’s tough. Once we put him, no one’s ever sure if he’s still in there or not.

Here in the desert most pet rescue organizations won’t let you adopt unless you promise (1) that the cat will be an indoor cat and (2) you don’t have a dog door. We have an old saying around these parts:

“Today’s outdoor cat is tomorrow’s coyote poop.”

We also have bobcats and hawks. Hell, we know a small (but bigger than a cat) dog that has been bitten by a rattlesnake, grabbed by a coyote, and attacked by a hawk (rescued by the owner in the latter two cases). All in the back yard.
