In Japan, it was once considered normal for cats to move freely indoors. Pet cats can walk outside in the morning and go to a neighbor’s yard to get treatment and fight stray people. However, after advising that cats be kept inside to protect cats from possible accidents or illnesses, Anicom Insurance says 99.5% are exclusively indoor pets.
