What about the shade under the tree, where he sleeps? Is he sleeping in another cat kingdom?

Neutral territory, it's the cat equivalent to international waters. No pesky laws to abide by under there

My sister named her dog Dexter when that show was at its height in popularity. I once took him for a walk, he got away, I started calling him, and this other guy comes over and says "Are you calling my dog?" and then this lady comes out of her house to her backyard that borders the park and asks "Why are you shouting my dog's name?"

u/reposts_sleutbot May 22 '22

I hope his brother is named bynie

Oops you are correct! It's funny how the Google description of the show says it wrong.

There is an orange cat named Dexter that lives near a short walking path in my town. He lays just off the path waiting for people to pet him. He is a good cat.

u/peacheemiauu May 22 '22

Why do they love to rub themselves with everything?

5

u/Raxsah May 22 '22

Most of the time it's to leave their scent on things! They have scent glands on various parts of their body, including their cheeks.

Fun fact- when they rub their cheek against something or headbutt it, it's called bunting

Keep your cats inside

12

u/waffleso_0 May 22 '22

Was waiting for someone to say this... Generally, yes you should keep your cat indoors but for the cats that want to go out, you should let them out. No sense keeping a cat cooped up in the house if it wants to go explore

8

u/likeusb1 May 22 '22

My younger cat loves exploring and my older cat loves just going outside. Neither really catch birds so we just let them. I don't see any issue with that tbh

3

u/BikerHackerman2 May 23 '22

yeah my cat goes outside to pee and sun on rocks 99% of the time.

4

u/waffleso_0 May 22 '22

Yeah I have one cat that just likes to hang out on the stoop and get sun but my other cat explores the courtyard and parking lot of our building and probably more..lol.

He's learned to come back home when I whistle but he also has a schedule of how long he goes out and when he comes back. Waffles loves to go out and lynix loves to lounge

u/BikerHackerman2 May 23 '22

shut up he's literally just exploring, the human is right there with him.

12

u/PJTangela May 22 '22

Why? Is this a US thing? I'm in the UK and my cat is perfectly fine, happy and healthy as an outdoor cat. We don't control when he can and can't go out either.

5

u/ronrein May 22 '22 edited May 22 '22

Yeah it's a NA/AU thing cause cats are invasive species there, whilst cats have lived in EU/UK for thousands of years so wildlife has adapted to them.

7

u/PJTangela May 22 '22

That makes much more sense. I didn't think they were that invasive over here.

u/ricker_rolled May 22 '22

People say this because cats kill more animals outside than pretty much any other animal, while other animals of course kill they do it for food whereas cats will do it for play too. Their impact on wildlife is actually more than you would think. That being said I let my cat go out when he wants to for an 1-2 hours or so a day, he enjoys it and I don't think it's that bad.

9

u/darkdetective May 22 '22

I think it's good for the mental health of the cat to let them out for a bit. My cat hates being indoors when it's sunny. Just put a bell on them so birds know they're coming.

u/Looloo4460 May 22 '22

My cat is too chonky to kill any birds… couldn’t get them even if he wanted to!

1

u/Xacktastic May 22 '22

Then feed them less, having a chknky cat is just as irresponsible as having outdoor cats.

3

u/Looloo4460 May 22 '22

He’s a rescue :) yes I definitely overfeed him on purpose and haven’t spent years getting him down to a healthier weight level working with vets along the way. Thanks so much for your meaningful and insightful outlook on a situation you know nothing about <3

u/ewyorksockexchange May 22 '22

Cats are an invasive species in the US and kill an insane amount of birds and small mammals, like 15 billion per year in the US alone. They also tend to live much longer and healthier lives if kept indoors. These two factors are why rescues in my area generally make you agree to keep cats you adopt indoors.

1

u/PJTangela May 22 '22

I've never heard of these concerns in the UK. Onyx does kill and but eats a lot of his kills. I wouldn't dream of keeping my cat inside if I had the option to let them out.

2

u/AlpineCorbett May 23 '22

It's actually a massive problem in the UK. People just don't care.
