For those of you with outside cats, are you keeping them in tonight? I've decided to but they are already crying, fighting & generally being jerks.

I'm not sure whether to let them out & hope they're sensible enough to come in. I'm worried about them falling or something falling on them.

Mine are refusing to go out anyway. Glad I still have a litter tray now

Glad mine are indoor cats. They don't mind rain, but really don't like wind.

Mine are indoor cats but if they were outdoor cats I'd be keeping them in tonight. It's not safe for them. They may be going beserk but they're safe and it's only 1 night.

Mine brought in a live mouse last night and took it, still alive into our bedroom, so I'm torn. My heart says let them in, my head says best to lock them out, they'll be fine. Normally would keep garage door open, but fear for the hinges in 50mph winds.

Might lock them in instead?

Yeah, I'm keeping mine in. They will probably keep me up but I can handle it.

woooooo absolutely!!

Heres hoping it all goes as smoothly as possible! My 2's impressions of Usain Bolt at 4am never fails to wake me up! 😻😻

Mine don't go out at night. I won't be letting them out tomorrow if it's still as windy in the morning.

I wouldn’t have let mine out in a storm. Too disorienteering (sp) & he might have lost his bearings.

Mine stayed in last night then I gave in to the crying this morning and one went out had a wee under the trampoline and came straight back in! The other one which I thought would go I hasn't so I'll try and keep them occupied today.

TwoHeadedYellowBelliedHoleDig Sun 09-Feb-20 08:26:07

Mine were up all bloody night waking me up to make sure I knew the weather was awful and what was I going to do about it. I have just got up to find them collapsed on the sofa and yes, I woke them up grin Now I'm back in bed with a cuppa while they trawl round all the upstairs windows begging to be let out because obviously there's an entirely different weather system outside each window. Twats.

I didn't think to and she went out, came in drenched and then did a poo on the carpet envy.

idontlike789 Sun 09-Feb-20 08:43:59

My cat wanted to go out at 11.30 pm last night just as I wanted to go to bed . So I waited 5 minutes and shouted her in. My cat only goes out when necessary in winter so definitely not going anywhere today till she's desperate for a wee. Won't use litter tray so got rid years ago .

slipperywhensparticus Sun 09-Feb-20 08:47:39

My three are indoor cats but between them and my youngest son I have had no sleep because they all need to tell me there is a storm outside 😴😴😴

Butternutsqoosh Sun 09-Feb-20 08:53:20

I've just moved and haven't seen DCat for over 24 hours now, after seeing him every day for 3 days after the move. Haven't got a cat flap either...hope he comes out of this weather soon!

TheTurnOfTheScrew Sun 09-Feb-20 08:59:29

Cat One is cross and shouting at the cat flap. She normally goes out in heavy rain but I think the wind is putting her off. Cat Two is a proper princess won't ever go outside if her ickle paws get moist hmm.

drspouse Sun 09-Feb-20 09:01:12

Mine goes out, gets wet and complains we haven't turned off the water yet.

Oldraver Sun 09-Feb-20 09:02:31

Ernie stays in at night but usually gets us up around 4am to go out

He didn't really want to when he felt the wind but was helped out

madcatladyforever Sun 09-Feb-20 09:05:36

Cat aged 18 freaks out if she gets a puff of wind up her bum so she won't be going out anytime soon.
She's a sensible girl, we moved house yesterday but she never needs to be kept in. I'll walk her round the area once so she knows where everything is and she's good to go on her own.

Vinorosso74 Sun 09-Feb-20 09:29:08

Ours has been out three times this morning. The first two were very brief. The third time he stayed out a bit longer until some stronger gusts blew then in he came. He's now half snoozing.

HuggedTheRedwoods Sun 09-Feb-20 09:58:34

We have a long term stray that lives in mine and next doors gardens (he has kennels in both) but I brought him in last night, spare bedroom with food and litter tray. He headed for the front door this morning, stuck his head out and ran back up to his room! My little cat isn't very happy about him being indoors and wont go up stairs today but I'm overuling for once and will keep him safe inside until it the worst of it passes. We're on the coast and its wild at the moment.

Fluffycloudland77 Sun 09-Feb-20 10:13:27

I’d have done the same @HuggedTheRedwoods. I wouldn’t want to be out in it either.

Toddlerteaplease Sun 09-Feb-20 10:16:01

My parents cat has sent me a message asking why my Archbishop friends cats have not had a word with the great cat in the sky and stopped the weather! hmmhmm

YesItsMeIDontCare Sun 09-Feb-20 10:22:41

Leroy (indoor cat) normally has two walks a day and is LIVID that this is clearly not going to happen.

Local stray is currently washing his butt on neighbour's windowsill so he's safe and cosy.

HuggedTheRedwoods Sun 09-Feb-20 12:07:44

Me neither Fluffy - even the hardened dog walkers dont seem to be out round our way today.
