It took a concerted effort to get our one cat to go outside. We keep them inside in a back room at night, and let them out in the morning. This cat ran into the rat of the house instead of outside twice. I ultimately had to shut the laundry room door and the door to the rest of the house, then chase her out.
Cats can be assholes indeed. BUT THEY'RE SO ADORABLE.
Christ, I'm going to die alone with five cats, aren't I?
