Well, if the cat has a 35% chance of staying out one night, the probability of it staying out for 2 nights is 17.5%. It would split in half. It staying out 7/14 nights is basically the same principle. (35/14)*7 is how you would work it out or 35/2. But yeah, haven't done Math in a while. Could be wrong.
