The last cat we had was when my daughter was 4 yrs old. She was always ill with various throat, ear, chest etc infections and had eczema but after the cat went everything got better - we now know this was allergy as she has hay fever symptoms if she goes near a cat or picks it up.
Recently I found a soaking wet cat straying in the rain in the road and crying pathetically so I did bring it home and put it in the garage with the door open for shelter. It ate well and slept there all night in a cardboard box. Found the owner the next day so all good. Didn't come in the house at all and so daughter was ok no symptoms at all.
OH is now keen to get a cat again and says he could put a catflap in the garage door for it to live there with free access to the garden.
Just wondering if this is suitable - can you keep a cat like this or is it cruel? What do others think?
