We have a male cat, named Darling !! he has its meals in the scullery. It is necessary to check if food or water are needed and please complete them if necessary. Darling is, sometimes, allowed in the kitchen, as you wish. He will be pleased if you accept him inside, but he can stay outside without any problem.
