We are moving soon and we are going to be in a third floor apartment. If we let the cats out on the balcony, will they jump off?
I used to jump off a second story balcony before my Human Typing Slave adopted me. It was because I wasn’t being given enough food by my former Human and I had to go searching for more. Plus I’m a little stinker.
Put collars with your phone number on your kitties. Then all you can do is wait and see how “stinky” or hungry they think they are. They will want very badly to get onto the porch if you deny it to them, I can promise you that, and eventually they will manage it.
