Hello, I had 3 cats a few months ago. My favorite one was trapped and shot by a careless ditch hunter. My parents told me I could have another to replace it if I like. I have been thinking long and hard...I volunteer at the animal shelter in town (I live in the country) and there are two cats that look like my old cat, Lynx. Niether like me too well, they don't pur and don't appreciate being petted(?). Then I noticed a calico cat, she is the most beautiful thing and she loves me to death!! I want to get her sooo bad. She is only a couple of years old, if that. My parents will let me have her but ABSOLUTELY NOT inside. How can I get her used to living outside? Will it traumatize her? Is my love for her worth what she'll have to go through? Will there be any problems at all? Please help me and give me advice.
