I collected my 2 yo rescue cat today. She keeps peeking through the cat flap, staring out of the windows and sits by the front door meowing.
She seems really settled and comfortable and I know it's crazy as she's not even been here for 12 hours. But do I really need to keep her indoors for at least 3 weeks? How long did you keep yours indoors for?
We gave in to our older cat and let her out in the garden under supervision after a day or so because she seemed calm and contented, but suddenly something scared her and she bolted - we never saw her again. She'd always been mine, but had lived with my parents for a few years, so it's not as if she wouldn't have known the sound of my voice when I searched for her for days on end, but she couldn't or didn't want to come back.
