Cat won't go outside

My cat was outside one night and she got in a fight in which she hurt her front leg by a bite from the other cat.Now she won't go out.What can i do to get her to go outside?

Answer by kate
Well there may not be a answer to this as my own cat would not go out for some time after a similar incident, she felt safer inside and we felt that it was unfair to force her out if she didn't want to go. She did eventually months later go out again, i think the memory of the incident had faded.
the other option is to go outside with her and sit down outside so that she knows you are near. She may not want to wander just let her know that it is fine and you are outside with her. if you do this often, hopefully she will regain her confidence.

Love the picture.
