I wouldn't let him out at all (and personally have had 3 cats and all have been indoors). You risk early death, injuries, disease, and being one of the wonderful neighbor's who gets the neighbor's cat defecating in her yard I can tell you that that is really obnoxious. Obviously once you let them out the world is their litter box and when cat urine kills plants and stuff easily, your neighbors may not be wonderfully thrilled. I know a friend of mine had an outdoor only cat and he was mauled by a wild animal, they found him in multiple pieces, shredded, near their home. She's been pretty traumatized by it.

So, for what it is worth, I would keep your kitty indoors. Maybe do things to play with him such as toys, interaction, etc so that the outdoors don't look so enticing anymore.
