My three are indoors, as mentioned earlier, I can't fathom my sorrow finding one of them on the side of the road..... My Bandit (my special girl ) has escaped a few times in her 8 years, and I was frantic to find her. My newest boy I took in about 3 years ago, Jinxy, got out through a torn screen I hadn't noticed last summer, and was gone all day, I finally found the gallot sunning himself on the neighbors porch! My oldest girl of 9 years, Keli, hasn't ever escaped, but does enjoy the outdoors, I occasionally put her on a harness and walk her about. For the most part, none of them really try to get out though. They do enjoy perching at the window and looking out. (show and tell time)

INDOOR the only time Rooney ever goes outside is in his harness with his leash on. And its a rare occasion.

Our girl is indoor only. She hates anything to do with the outdoors. I've tried to take her out several times on a leash, and she is terrified. She is happy and healthy being an indoors only kitty, and I can sleep better knowing that she's safe.

Mine are indoor,outdoor...1 cat she HARDLY goes outside, and when she does she just sits on our front grass for about 5 mins and then comes back in.

The other hes a brat, he will leave for 3 days and not come home at all and then he will come home for a while and then back out ~hes a fighter~

Both mine are indoor only cats. I do not trust the people staying around my neighbourhood. They can be quite mean And I cannot imagine losing any one of my cats, i'll go nuts.
But I'll be probably building a outdoor catrun if I can afford it (still waiting for a quotation) on my terrace

Indoor/outdoor, but the neighborhood is quite safe. Most of the neighbors around here have cats also (most indoor/outdoor as well), there's not much traffic, and mostly the neighborhood is enclosed in big roads and there is no woods close (although I did see a fox once, and a couple skunks). I would be less worried if they were indoor only, but they're frankly much happier this way.
