How to Keep Your Cat Safe
Here’s why they sometimes get lost — where they are likely to hide — and most importantly, how you can find them. Tip: ID is important.
According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, well over 86 million cats currently live in U.S. homes. Two-thirds of them, the organization estimates, are “indoor-only” feline companions — their owners keep them confined within the home at all times. The remaining one-third are so-called “indoor-outdoor” cats —they are free to trot in and out of their owners’ houses as the mood strikes them.
