How Old Does A Kitten Have To Be To Turn Loose Outside??

i always wondered how old does a kitten have to be to turn loose outside??

Hmmm…that’s not an easy question. I’m sure there are laws in some states about putting young cats outdoors unsupervised, but they don’t necessarily apply at this age. However, my understanding is that even if you’re following all the rules, extra care should still be taken when using kittens as outdoor litter-mates. They’ll probably start marking their territory right away and might get into fights with other young cats or adult cats who wouldn’t normally fight them (younger siblings would), so you’ll want to keep them separated from each other while they’re learning what it means to live outside until they’re older. Also note that getting a kitten used to being handled by strangers sooner rather than later will save your sanity when people come over for visits and need petting! Hmmm…that’s not an easy question.
