We are having a tree cut down, in our garden.

Should we lock our cat in for the day? I won't be home as will be at work. I know cats are pretty hard but what if a branch falls on him?!

Any thoughts?

Branches, workers, yelling, big vans to take debris, radios etc etc? I would if it's of any size. If only for peace of mind.

Defiantly keep him in. He could so easily get hurt or end up getting into one of the vans. Many a cat has been taken of in a work van and if they jump out, when the van is opened, they're unlikely to be found.

Thanks Cozie and Poverty, I hadn't thought of the van thing. I'd thought of branches etc!

Thanks for your advice.

I would. The noise might spook him and make him run away.

Yes definitely. Could get very stressed by the noise and strangers about.
