She is terrified. I'm trying to get her used to outdoors in the daytime. She is very frightened and keeps trying to run back inside. She's been like this the 3 years since I rescued her. That is why I have the harness on her. She settled down and enjoyed the attention but ran straight inside once I took off the harness. Josie has been bullying her and this has caused her to remain skittish.

We've noticed that our own cats -- all of them rescued off the streets of NYC -- are not inclined to go outdoors again.... Or if they do, they panic if doors/windows are closed behind them and also will not stay outdoors by themselves. Personally, I don't think a cat not wanting to roam outdoors is a bad thing and would just leave her be.

She's grown into quite the cute kitty =)

Thank You. I tried to get her to go into the yard in the day because she's been staying behind a bookshelf all day recently, just hiding, her life became hiding and eating because Josie is a bully to her. She gets confident knowing I've got her back, she starts to be brave again and relax at least sitting in the house comfortably and part of the family rather than hidden and squashed away.
She normally goes into the back yard at night...the yard is fully secured. Due to the recent poisoning, I've kept them all in at night.

I was up at 4.30am today to supervise them out in the dark for the half an hour before it started to get light. It's not ideal. I'm trying to adjust Tabitha to enjoy outside in the day rather than the night so she's not missing her time outside.
Last night I didn't shut the bathroom door properly and she got out through a window...I imagine she had a blast. I only discovered it when I got up to let the others out.
It's this neighbour problem I have...it's unending...

Indeed, but it's the fear of being outside in the daytime that distresses her. I only tried to get her used to outside for about 10minutes. She kept trying to run inside. As soon as I took her harness of she was back inside...it did help her though, she now will go just outside the back door at times, during the day, and sometimes sneak out to toilet and then sneak back in.
