Any! Though I understand Ragdoll cats are more suited to be kept inside.

Thats not very kind keeping it inside!

I thought it said you wanted a flat cat:oops:

You say that, but my cat won't LEAVE the house.

Perhaps it is scared!

We had one that didnt like it when it was cold so would hide in the bathroom till winter went away! Then in summer she would hide in the garden to avoid coming in! Cats they train us pretty well. :-D

Do you have kids? If so then you need to bear that in mind when picking a breed.

I have a white cat, she is generally indifferent. Unless she thinks I'm going to give her prawns/tuna. Then I'm her favourite.

Nor is it fair if its a young kitten....

No cat copes well with being kept inside - despite what people think.

In all honesty, if you want a cat and its life is going to be confined to inside a house or flat, the kindest and most responsible thing to do would be to contact your local Cats Protection League, RSPCA, or similar organisation, as there are PLENTY of unwanted cats in desperate need of a loving home.

A significant number of these cats are the result of an elderly person, no longer being able to look after the cat, the cat is older and would enjoy the peace of an indoor life.

But seriously, if you are thinking of getting a young cat and confining it to a life indoors, it is no more acceptable to do that to a cat than it is to a dog.....
A cat the CAN have the CHOICE to go out and chooses not to is NOT the same as a cat that has not been given this choice.

Please take your time to consider your options from a responsible point of view... If you can give a cat a home, then why not get a cat that won't mind being put in that position, as it is already a Senior Cat.

Very sad story.

Although I kind of agree I also think that if it's never been outside it's not likely to know any different anyway. I can't imaging it'll be sitting pining looking out of the window.lol Arr bless

bengal!

cats are independent, intelligent, never get bored, easy to toilet train, cleans itself often, and can amuse itself ... low maintenance. generally speaking the siamese cats are chatty and very intelligent - my first cat and her kittens; the persians are a moody breed - my classmate's cats, then i had a white one with blue eyes once (rescue cat, it thought it was a dog ie kept knawing and v boisterous!), my current one is a british shorthair + oriental mix (champagne coloured with faint tabby marks and white chest) - she's adorable.

there are also other beautiful breeds but you shd be careful not to get the overbred ones.

the only hazard is the nails / leather sofa - but u shd get the scratching post that is tall enough for adult cat to stretch. get nail clippers when it's a teenager cat. a vet or pet shop with healthy cats shd be able to advise you.

But it needs to be given the option! Think how you would feel with no outdoor life, no friends, no play time, nothing! It's not fair keeping it couped up in a flat!:?

Thats a nice BIG cat lol

[SIZE="6"]http://i258.photobucket.com/albums/hh244/octobergirl28/LOL.gif[/SIZE]

i have 4 cats 2 persians 1 ragdoll 1 brown tip burmese, they stay indoors because they want to mainly, they stand by the open back door thou sometimes, i also have a cat pen that is big in my garden the reason being i lost 2 show persians on the road outside my house within a few weeks of me getting them, not that it was a money thing but they cost £1000, also i have 2 schools by me and if kids saw my cats they would pick them up and take them home and kids pull them around with no cares in the world, on a sidenote i care more about my cats than i do of most humans, hehe

if there is the option to let it out i would love to
inregards to re homing a cat that is possbily the plan
and if you look around at the averae life of a cat outside compared to one who lives in then they live like 5years longer. I am only worried as were moving to a city, and i couldnt bare it if anything happened

Maybe you could compromise and buy a harness and allow your cat walks outside, we had a cat badly injured through jumping and he had to stay inside for 12 months to heal, he was going mad, but a friend who breeds cats suggested a harness, we were able to take him outside and allow him some outside time without worrying he would get injured. We got some strange looks though, its not that common walking a cat.

If you want a FLAT CAT...

it may be cruel to keep a cat indoors but on the other hand we lost ours due to being run over shortly after he started going out :-( he was only 5 months old and the kids were devastated, avoid getting another now cos im scared it will happen again

as some have siad I would contact the RSPCA as there are some real top cats who are suitable for a flat, also if you do get a cat for your flat its always an idea to have some pot grass or cat mint as cats always like to eat grass from time to time to aid digestion

When I was a child my M&D got two male burmese cats (brothers) and we kept them inside most of the time on the advice of the breeder (they were prone to catkidnappings) We had a huge cat scratch, a litter tray with a roof on which helped contain the cat litter and we had a tray of grass for them to help themselves to. We did try letting them out but they never wanted to stray outside the garden, they enjoyed the security of going outside with a harness on which we did every day. One lived to 14 and the other 17 years old which is unusual for Burmese. Even in old age they chased and played with each other and were very contented cats. They were like little brothers to me and my sister, they both had their own individual personality. I would highly recommend them

Keeping cats indoors is not cruel at all! If you are rehoming a cat that has been allowed outside by its previous owner you would have to allow it out as it would be use to it.

I have five cats, two Persians and three British Shorthairs. They are all pedigree cats and are not suppose to be go outside. They have everything they need and they are all very happy content cats.

As long as you have everything you need for a cat indoors, such as litter tray, scratching post, toys, etc, they have no need or desire to go outside.

I highly recommend British Shorthaired cats, they are extemely loving and loyal cats!

Wish i knew how to post a pic :roll: Ive got a gorgeous pure white Maine … Wish i knew how to post a pic :roll: Ive got a gorgeous pure white Maine coon, she's 2 yrs old and adorable, jumps on my lap in the morning for a cuddle, stretches out, hasn't got a pug face, just looks like she smiles all the time and purrs like a kitten lol.She has a gorgeous nature and i couldnt replace her, i know it.Ive got 2 other cats, one a little black cat and the other a Norwegian forest cat, the Norwegian forest cat has a lovely temperament, he's very soft and gentle, but huge! the other black cats is very ordinary :roll:, eats, sleeps and goes out!So, if you can, get a Maine coon, mine is the most perfect cat and i wouldnt swap her for anything!:roll:

and to EVERY single person who says keeping cats indoor all day is cruel.. have u ever seen what happens to them on the streets? There was a report in my local paper a couple of months back about a cat being kickd to death by some kids and that really gets to me more than i can write.. i have 2 cats they both love it indoors, my oldest cuddles up in his spot and purrs lously all day to himself and I know that there happy, u'd never let your dogs wander the streets alone or your children who dont know any better so why is it ok to do it with cats who cant defend themselves? I understand that lots of people let their cats out and iom not judging anyone i just feel its wrong to slate people who want to keep their cats inside and make sure there extra safe all the time!! x x x
