If you and/or your husband are good at building things and you have the time and space to do it, you could consider building your cat an outdoor cat enclosure. That way, your cat could enjoy the outdoors safely and you would not have to worry about him running away, getting run over, someone harming him, etc.

As for the jumping over baby gates--this is something the cat has to become comfortable with in time. My cats would not jump over our baby gate until about 4-5 months after we set it up. They just simply wouldn't. Now, it's more of a game for them to fly over that gate and tease the dogs than anything else, but at first they would sit on one side of the gate and mew for someone to come open it for them.

Good luck with the new addition to your family.
