We have a cat that is allowed to roam outside and inside. It usually poos outside but we also have a litter tray inside. It jumps up on the kitchen bench and drinks from the kitchen tap which I think is gross! A family member starts chemo treatment forstage 4 lung cancer next week so I’m wondering if we should be locking it outside for the duration or perhaps as a permanent thing? What are the risks associated with cats being near the food preparation area too? I need some facts not judgement please.
