In three minds
My Baby kitty "Neko" (word for cat in Japanese) is now 6 months old and has just bee sterilised. He has been an indoor cat since we got him but even with the thousands of toys that he has he still seems so bored in the house, it breaks my heart to be sitting on the balcony and hear him crying cause he just wants to come out, He has been out on supervised walks as we are on the 1st floor and don't have a garden, I had the unfortunate experience to have my last baby hit by a car so I’m also paranoid of letting him out. However now ever time we open the door he is out like a bullet and I’m finding it very hard to keep him in when we have to leave. The problem I now have is this ... should I let him out in the day (with a collar and name tag), should I just keep him in and hope he gets used to it or should I look for another home for him where he maybe has a garden and more place to play?

This is a difficult one. Is it possible to put a plank from the garden to your patio for him to climb up and down as he pleases? Has he been neutered?
