Cat running outside

I have never let Stardust outside. Lately she has been running out the front door at least once a day. She meows at the door every time I walk by. She ran out into the street today. I was just wondering if there is anything I can do to keep her inside?

can be a problems 'after' one escape they have had a taste of the outdoors.
both of my cats are indoor cats too. but I do take them out in the back yard daily (with me)with the use of a leash and harness. this satisfies them.
although they do try to escape thru the front door when I answer a knock.occasionally,.and alot of extra care is needed to prevent this from happening....its the unexplored also perhaps the attraction of scents from other cats.

I wonder if they make shock collars for kitties?  :)   I think eventually Stardust will learn by repetition and you telling her "no" and distracting her, she will eventually realize that it's just not meant to be.  The older she gets, the more she will adjust. :)  She's spayed, right?

She is spayed.  Her previous owners spayed her.

It sounds like she's just really bored.  Does she have access to a window she can look out.  I don't know how old she is but at about a yr they settle down and sleep more...at least mine do.  Make sure she has her little cat toys and maybe some catnip toys.  Are there any other pets in the household?  Have you had her for awhile or is she new to her surroundings?  I think she will adjust and feel more comfortable with staying in...in time. :)

She has a big sliding glass door that she can look out, as well as many more windows throughout our townhouse.  She did move less than a month ago, but she has loved it ever since. When we lived in apartments she would always run into the hallway, but now that we don't have one she has discovered the outdoors.
