Advice: Keeping your cat in at night
07 December 2016
Since 2014, there have been many reportings of cat killings in the London area, which have been thought to have been carried out by the same person, known as the Croydon cat killer
. Very recently, an attack of a similar nature happened in Welwyn Garden City
, and there have been reportings in other areas of the UK.
To help keep your cat safe from harm, we recommend keeping your cat in at night. Another reason for this is that the risk of cats being injured or killed in road traffic accidents is higher at night/in dark hours including morning/afternoon in winter months.
If you decide to keep your cats indoors at night, you will need to provide your cat with exercise and mental stimulation, as well as access to water and a litter tray, to ensure its needs are met when restricted from venturing outside.
