I second that hopperodyssey's comment was offensive. Not only is it safer for the cats inside, but safer for the neighborhood wildlife. I love kitties but they are all little sociopaths who kill things just because they can. I have seen well fed pet cats mutilate small critters to "hunt & play" with them, and ultimately not eat them. I live near wetlands and people who let their cats roam are completely irresponsible and locally devastating. The poor cats pay with their lives for their owners' ignorance, not only are there the usual problems, big dogs, busy roads, bad children, poison, diseases and pests but there are coyotes as well; seems like twice a week a new "lost" poster goes up. Gee I wonder why.

@shukaide Disposable is almost always the worst choice. With real dishes you use some water and energy to wash them yes, but every single disposable dish is shipped from somewhere; it is most likely made in China, shipped halfway around the world to a warehouse, then to a distribution centre, then a store and then your house. However the fun doesn't stop there, afterwards it is shipped to a dump, all this way burning fossil fuels and contributing to landfill. Every single new disposable item carries this huge environmental burden each and every time you use one, which massively outstrips the environmental cost of washing real dishes even in a dishwasher.
