I have a kind of odd question..
We have an inside kitty, Tucker, age 1 (he's only escaped twice, and caught immediately, so basically he has never been freed*, but he *wants to be! )
We have another kitty, James, age 4 (I know I've talked about them before, but just in case someone who hasn't read about them, this is for their benefit, so please bear with me.).
James is the same kitty who was beginning to check out the couch with his claws, the one the clear packing tape worked perfectly on. James has always been allowed outside if he wants to be. A couple weeks ago James began to want in more and more. This doesn't bother me at all. I prefer him being in, though I understand his wanting out and so granted that as well. He's just always come and gone as he pleased, and it's usually been about 75% in and 25% out.
Except for the past 2 weeks. He stays in about 95% of the time now. All I care about is if this is a normal thing or should I be looking for other problems? He appears very healthy... he's playful, not sleeping any more than usual- plenty of energy. Eating well. No problem using the litter box. Still very loving and happy.
I just don't get why he's suddenly decided to stay inside so much. Again, I don't mind it, I just want know if anyone has experience with this, or any ideas?
Thanks Emotion: smile

He's a smart kitty :-)
We have an 11 year old cat who decided he didn't want to go out anymore also. I think he was about 8 or so then. I think he just prefers the indoors, really.

Not at all. Wa state and it's rainy, but in all his life it's never bothered him. He's sat and howled to go out, even in the rain, silly kitty! And in the very infrequent snow we get as well.
I guess I'll try and just be happy he's wanting to be in more Emotion: smile Hailey

Maybe there is a bigger kitty on the block and he's decided he doesn't want to deal with it.

Count your blessings. He is not in as much danger indoors as out. Sounds like
he's a smart kitty.

LOL! I hadn't thought of that!

I think I'd do the same, as long as he is okay otherwise. :-)
