>Cat suddenly afraid to go outdoors?
We have an outdoor cat Elmer, 8 months old, who has tons of energy and loves to play outdoors. But recently he does not want to go outside or just stays in the garage. Elmer seems healthy, although he did seem lethargic for a day or two after we treated him with Advantage for fleas. I have heard him scuffle with a stray cat who started hanging around, so maybe it is a territorial issue? I saw Elmer crouched down watching the stray, who was casually walking around. Anything we can do?
