BK (Blind Kitty) has lived on our front porch for a couple of months. He is well accepted by our other cats. One female outside cat actually looks out for him. As with all of our extended stay visitors, there is a price to be paid for too many free meals. The trip to the vet established he was blind.
This leads to a debate my wife and I are having. She wants him inside where he is protected, I want him outside where he is familiar with his environment. Opinions?

Personally, I'd probably offer him to option to come in and go out, as he pleases/ needs, checking on him occasionally, when he's outside. If he's an outdoor cat, that's probably where he'd prefer to be.

Just asking to be 'ornary', are cats required to be kept separated from wildlife IE birds and lizards etc?
Its happening in Australia and some really neat setups where cats can wonder between a house and enclosed tunnels, caged areas are being created.
