After we have decided that our little kitten will have outdoor access, we should consider several things. Feline experts give us a few tips that are essential to ensure safety in cat’s outside adventures. They do not recommend allowing a kitten outside if he has less than 14 months. According to them, he should get all prescribed vaccines before we let him go outside. However, when a kitten reaches 14 months, he is not still able to wander around without our supervision. Feline experts advise us to begin introducing the outer world to our kitten 15 – 20 minutes under our supervision, and then gradually increasing the time.
