Do I take the cats???? in Pets Posted January 25, 2017 If you have strong emotional attachment to your cats (mine is my baby!), it is worth taking them. Whether it is safe or even legal to let them out depends entirely where you live. You could keep them indoors or set up an outdoor enclosure. We are lucky to live in a cat friendly cul de sac, so our boy gets supervised outdoor playtime, he mainly stays in our yard or goes to the neighbours house to play with their cats. This is just my opinion but cost wouldn't be a consideration, our cat is family and we'd never leave him behind. But then I'd rather starve than let him go hungry lol!
