I have a 3 year old cat named Louis. He is very independent and not too keen on cuddling or being petted. He bites, hisses and swats at you if you try to touch him. He likes to play with cat toys- but has A.D.D. (I swear!) and loses interest after about 5 minutes. He really enjoys being outdoors, so I have him vaccinated and let him be an indoor/outdoor kitty. He is however very dominant and has quite the attitude. I have heard him fight with other neighborhood kitties more than once- cat fights are not fun to break up let me tell you. I do my best to check him over when he comes in to make sure he doesn't have any wounds because I know he doesn't get along with alot of other cats. A couple months ago I noticed he had a large lump on his chest and took him to the vet right away and it was an infection from a fight he had gotten in. We had it drained and I gave him antibotics. I kept him in for a couple of weeks but he was begging to be let out all the time. I felt bad because he is used to being able to go out so I broke down and let him out. Everything has been going fine and then Monday I noticed he had a lump under his jaw and I looked it over and there were no wounds. We went to vet yesterday and he had another infection from a wound-my guess cat fight. I know he will be okay again but it costs like $250 everytime we have to go through this. I know he will not be happy being an indoor only cat and I feel like I can't make him stay in because he's used to going out. I have tried to give him more indoor stimulus- but he doesn't seem to like toys for very long. I have also tried putting a harness on him and being outside with him-but he doesn't enjoy that at all and it takes a good 45 mins for me to get the harness on him. He is most uncooperative. I am just wondering if anyone has ideas for me and how to avoid any more costly infections?
