The cats live freely with us in the house, they have access to all the rooms.

   There are baskets and cat trees on every floor, but they prefer to sleep on our pillows or on the children's quilt.

   They can reach the outdoor cattery through the catflap whenever they feel like crawling up the branches or taking a nap in the sun.

   When the male has to be separated from his mates, the outdoor cattery and its adjacent rooms in the house are more specifically attributed to him.
