Thread Name: BS: Keeping cats from dangerous road
Subject: RE: BS: Keeping cats from dangerous road
It doesn't matter how well trained they may be to stay, something, anything could come along and they can be out in the road in a flash. I know, I lost a beautiful calico when she was out with a family member and his cats. He turned away for two seconds and she was gone. We later found she'd been grabbed by a vicious dog whose owner knew it was running loose and was a cat killer, but nothing was done. I had no proof except a couple of tourists at a gas station who saw her in the dog's mouth.

Best way to keep a cat from harm is build them a run and let them stay in it and inside, IMO.
