Cats/cat outdoor


can i put my new adopted kitten (from a shelter) in an outdoor kennel? it will be very spacious and roomy, it will have a cathouse that will protect against extreme hot or cold temps, it will have food, water ,toys, and the kitten will recieve lots of attention. i may also take it out for walks to let it get more exercise. i cannot bring the kitten inside the house due to severe allergies that others' have, but it will be treated the best way possible outside. please help, i really want this kitten.

yes i can't see why not. It sound like he will have luxury apartment outside and so should be fine.

I have always allowed my cats to roam free ( I live in the Uk where this is the norm) but i know that there are some parts of the world where this is not safe.

As long as your kitten is fully weaned ie over 12 weeks old he should be fine and not need the constant attention of a younger kitten.

Sounds like he is going to ahve a lovely life with lots of space etc to live in.

I have a cat web site with lots if information about cat and kitten care etc which you may find of further help and interest. It is

best wishes kate
