"The average lifespan of an indoor cat is 15-18 years. For a cat allowed outdoors, the average life is only 2-5 years." - Little Big CatIt’s much healthier for cats to be kept indoors where they’re safe from diseases (such as Feline Leukemia, FIV [Feline AIDS], distemper, rabies, and toxoplasmosis), parasites (such as fleas, ticks, and worms), poisons (such as anti-freeze and rat poison), loose dogs, other cats, cars, wild animals (such as coyotes, bears, mountain lions, and birds of prey), malicious people, and more. The list of outdoor dangers for cats is quite long and this is not to mention the damage that cats inflict on our native wildlife.We don’t let our dogs roam freely, so why let our cats? Indoor cats live much longer, healthier lives than outdoor or indoor/outdoor cats and it’s quite possible to have a happy, well entertained indoor cat. There are far safer ways to allow cats to enjoy the outdoors, such walking them on a harness, cat fencing your backyard, or building/buying an outdoor cat enclosure.

This is completely us-centric, if you’re reading this. My cats have been allowed come and go as they please and almost all have lived past ten. That’s common to most rural cats in Ireland.

That top fact isn’t strictly true, but it is true that feral cats only live 2-5 years. Outdoor cats do statistically live shorter lives, but not that much shorter.
But you should keep your cat indoors because we’re now learning that they’re causing way more environmental damage than previously thought.

You can appreciate the science while still feeling empathy for the person. That’s the entire point of archaeology.

Red-lipped batfish have modified fins that they use to “walk” along the ocean floor. They are terrible swimmers, so they focus their hunting efforts on fellow bottom-dwelling fish and crustaceans.

"Does size matter" is one of those rare questions where men can’t take yes for an answer.

You’ll never guess what I just saw! A steal this look post with an unpopular celebrity… and they were next to a trash can! Oh what joyous fun we have on tumblr dot com.
