Thread Name: BS: Keeping cats from dangerous road
Subject: RE: BS: Keeping cats from dangerous road
Sadly, it really depends on the cat. I have had cats who 'knew' about traffic, and just paid attention....including one who, when we moved, disappeared and was found a week later back at 'his' old stomping grounds, after a 5 mile trip thru all kinds of roads. We brought him home, and he just said "ok" and didn't try again.

Often, if the kittens spend enough time learning where they belong, they don't have urge to travel. (A male cat is easier if neutered)
That garden area being right on the road, it might be good to line the road part with a fence of something like 'chicken wire' to discourage direct access.
