Can an indoor cat survives as an outdoor cat?

I have 2 years old cat, i feel so bad with him coz since he attacked my sister,my mom and me many times,like i got stitches on my ear even you pet him,got a lot of deep scars on my legs now,i still keep him,but keeping him in my room inside the cage,after that we moved to new place and keep him in the basement,i tried to let him out the backyard but he keeps meowing….so i let him in again. My family doesnt like him roaming around the house coz they are scared with him. I tried to and fight wioth it to make him familiar with everybody but always an incident happen,my cat attacked my mom again. I dont know what to do,i tried to make everybody happy but i cant handle anymore,i am planning to keep him as an outdoor cat but i wonder if he will survive since he got scared with just a slamming door what more with horns of cars and etc….helppppppp…if i take him to the shelter i feel bad for the family to take him,,my cat might attacked the new owner….hellllllp. He is very adorable though,and i understand why hes acting that way coz hes been in the cage for a while and i want him to roam outdoor,i just dont know if he will survive and thats the best for him..hellllp.

This is a very difficult situation. It sounds to me like your cat would struggle with life outside. Especially if he's been inside all his life. Cats will adjust, but it's during that adjustment period that he'd get hit by a car or killed. I would NOT let him outside – what if he injures a neighborhood kid?! You'll be liable for any damage he causes. He may kill a neighbors cat or bite a little kid trying to pet him (cat bites are very painful and easily infected as I'm sure you know). If he is really this stressed and violent it may be best to euthanize him. It's terrible, but it doesn't sound like he's very happy in spite of what you've done for him. A miserable, fearful life in a home with people who are afraid of him is no life for a cat. Some cats have mental disorders and are really unhinged. I know this can be sad, but he'd never find a new home, and it's irresponsible to let anyone else handle him or let him outside to hurt more people. I'm so sorry.

How do you make an outdoor cat a happy indoor cat?

Basically, I have a stray cat that I took in. I believe based off her behavior that her previous owner had her do her business outside and let her outside during the day. She's happy to stay in at night but when I leave for work in the morning she bolts out the door. I don't want to punish her for doing this and I'm afraid to simply lock her inside because she might start to meow loudly and the neighbors might hear and complain. (Technically, I'm not supposed to have pets in my apartment and could get evicted over this. I'm planning on moving to a residence that allows them ASAP) I need her to want to stay inside. Any ideas? I have lots of toys in the apartment for her to play with and a cat perch. Part of me is thinking to just let her be an outdoor-indoor cat until I move to a residence that allows cats. And as far as taking her to an animal shelter is concerned, none of the no-kill shelters in my area will take her.

If you brought the cat in your house recently, she may have to start getting used to inside. Stray cats usually can't wait to go outside after they have just been adopted. Let her outside occasionally but maybe after a while she will get used to your home. After a few months, she may even want to stay inside. While you are at work, make sure your cat has a nice place to sleep, plenty of water and food.
