    Their parents but they leave them after "growing up" or "becoming adults".

    The kitten you have is small. It will leave you when it has "grown up" or become "mature". Like a lot of people when they are small they live with their parents but they leave them after "growing up" or "becoming adults".

    Please check my sentences.

    Generally, when people get a kitten as a pet, it stays with them. Domestic cats don't just "leave home" when they get older.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I do not like cats. I have seen after they have grown up they just do not stay at home all the time (I never reared a cat. I saw it at the homes of other people who reared cats). They wander here and there all day.

    Could you please correct my sentences please?

    See my corrections above.

    I didn't say that the cats didn't go out and wander around all day. Most of them do. However, they still "live" at the house of their owner and come back to the house for food and sometimes to sleep. They don't "leave home". That suggests that they leave and never come back.

    I have had three cats. The first would sometimes disappear for two or three days at a time but always came home in the end. The second would go out for a few hours each day but spent most of his time in my house. My last cat was a "house cat" - she had an immune deficiency so she was not able to go outside because the risk of picking up some kind of illness or infection was too high. She stayed indoors all the time.
