He was a wonderful cat.

Hope your other two are doing well - assume they've moved in with you by now? I'm sure you already know all about it, but keep an eye on them. Cats in a new environment are more prone to things like this... It's exactly what happened to my cat, for the exact same reasons (recent move, not used to the surroundings)...

If and when I get another cat I won't let it out. Simple as that. Unless I live in the middle of countryside with no cars. It may not be quite as good for it but at least it'll be alive. I've been in Tel Aviv where all non-homeless cats are indoor only - and it works (otherwise they would never survive).

Of the other two, Tarmac's sister has gone to live with my parents (who have one cat already), and our elderly cat Stella, who had already moved house with us to Hoadly Road without problems, has come to Leys Avenue with me. Stella has access to the garden, and (fairly quiet) suburban roads nearby, but she rarely goes out by choice, preferring to sleep most of the time these days. She had been living wild on the streets for a long time before she was originally rescued, so I think she must be quite used to avoiding cars.

Pretty much all the cats I've lived with have been rescued strays, who often had spent years living outdoors; it would seem very cruel to keep them indoors all the time after that. But if one got an older cat used to an indoor life, or one with an ailment that meant it couldn't mix with other cats, I guess it wouldn't be so bad to confine it to the house. Some sort of house with a central courtyard, like Roman villas, would be ideal :-)
