I'm just looking for advice on the best way to to this. I have a 7/8 yr old female cat that has been outdoor since 1yr old. At 5, she got caught in a fox trap. Luckily she escaped but she had to have her paw amputated. Since then, she goes in and out during the winter, but tends to stay out from Spring to Fall. The problem now is that she has started to roam for days at a time. I know of at least 1 other house that feeds her, and I believe she also has a second home somewhere. She will go missing for 5-6 days, and come back fine. We constantly worry about her and start posting/looking after 3 days. Since she is getting older, she is starting to have some arthritis from hopping on three legs, so we are hoping now to transition her to a fully indoor cat. When she is inside, she is a perfect house cat. However, when she wants out she will cry nonstop and climb the window screens. Will she eventually get over this if we just refuse to let her out? Also, when she is in all she does is lay around on the bed. I'm wondering how to keep her thinner (she hates to play).
