Can I adopt a cat to be indoor living only?

At Woodgreen, we rehome our cats with the intention of them having access to the outdoors on a regular basis.

Indoor-only cats are restricted from fulfilling natural behaviours, which can often build frustrations that may lead to stress and depression.

This can present itself as troublesome behaviours, causing issues for both the cat and the owner.

Occasionally an exception will be made if it’s in the cat’s best interests to be rehomed in a purely indoor environment or with restricted outdoor access. For example, agoraphobia or extreme cases of compromised sight and/or hearing.
