Honestly, Indoor. would you like if your parents kept you outdoors? although you probably loved outside would you really want to LIVE there? (not to be rude) but indoors are much more loving and affectionate. Also for them to be outdoor theirs a greater risk of something killing them or harming them, them getting hit by a car, or a stray dog jumping your fence and depending where you live, a dangerous wild animal as well. Plus if there declawed
(which I'm against but i wont preach to you ;) and there outside they cant defend themselves against other cats and they might end up developing security problems which can cause cats to be vicious. and alot of cats are homeless because owners choose to leave them outside and cant understand why they turn so vicious so they just let them go. Ive had many cats over the years and one declawed (not to my knowledge however) and the declawed ones really do end up more aggressive. they use their teeth instead of their claws and TRUST me, their teeth hurt A LOT more than their claws. anyways (I'm getting off topic, sorry) indoors is better. there are many benefits of indoors, plus a big one is , outdoor cats will and can get FLEAS (once again from experience) then when the weather is bad they'll come inside and spread the fleas to you and your other animals.and yes you will feel the fleas and they do bite humans too, and some carry diseases form outside so when they bite you and give you a disease i can imagine you wont be too happy.
