Outdoors? Oh Noes! Cats Overwhelmed By Awesomeness Of Going Outside For First Time In Their Lives

cats outsie first time

It’s a big world out there, and while we as human beings can often feel a little overwhelmed by everything, imagine being a cat — a cat who’s never been outside before.

We know how much cats like to sleep, and how much they enjoy the security of a routine and a clearly defined territory. And, of course, it’s not only perfectly fine but perhaps preferable to keep your cat indoors. Indoor cats have significantly longer life expectancies than cats that spend most of their time outside.

But if you must let your cat outdoors for the very first time — bring your camera! We promise that you’ll capture some priceless shots. And if you doubt it, check these 15 photos of kitties going outside for the first time in their young lives, collected from the internet forum Reddit, as well as sources from around the web.
