Outdoor Cat House
In some countries you wouldn't want to keep your cat in an outdoor cator hardly even let them outside or at least not let them run free as the chances of them disappearing is too great.

In some Latin countries there is also a custom of preparing cat dishes at part of certain native foods.

Any country that has a portion of its populace surviving beneath the poverty line will probably pose significant risk to your pet feline if you are not careful. The simplest thing to do is not get your cat a outdoor but rather have them live indoors with you and your family.
