every place here is dangerous for cats. coyotes, foxes, raptors, etc all prey on them, not to mention the human threat. they won't last long outside.

Your cat will likely die a horrible death if you let it outside. If you care about it keep it inside.

I agree with LisaCACO and breaksraver13.

My aunt lives in Castle Pines (used to be unincorporated Castle Rock?), and she says you always know when someone from out of state moved in by the "Missing Cat" signs that appear all over the neighborhood. They aren't missing...they are dead.

I don't if owls are a real threat, but they are all over the place ... and very active at night. I think a big owl could take a cat.

There are also large hawks and ravens ...

I would say that unless your cat is really tough, it will most likely get killed if left outside for any significant amount of time.

All my cats that ventured outside got killed by Coyotes.

My current cat stays inside and she's very happy and old ...
