I am from Japan and have always had a cat in the home since we have so many apartment dwellers over there! For this reason the Japanese invented the Cat Cafe concept so that even those with an apartment too small even for a cat might still have some fun with an indoor cat. Your cat will never be outdoors while in my care and will not be roaming anyone's neighbourhood. The idea is that the cat has a holiday as well as you, so the cat may not want to leave when you return!!
