I have two kitties, bro & sis, around 9 mos old, and a Parson Russell Terrorist. I let the tom kitty stay in last night because it was cold and wet and he wanted to. Usually they're out except to eat and hang out with during the day, or for a couple of hours in the evening, then I throw them out. They have a porch, a garage, good warm places to stay, so I don't feel guilty. Girl kitty prefers it outside because she detests the children and the dog. Last night boy kitty (Bacon) was in and damn he wouldn't leave my flipping dog the hell alone. This is the dog I had to train not to kill them because that's the way she rolls, little things die. She tries to kill big things, too, but can't, she's not big enough. But all night long that stupid cat would race around the house then jump up on the bed and grab her around the neck, bite and kick her. And she can't do anything because she knows she'll get in trouble. Asshole cat. He can stay outside tonight.
