This puts the control handle outdoors but the rim spacethere can be outdoor tap to drain water within the intervening pipe. I have one location to check but intended to eliminate the risk of damaged to drain out when the spigot is. The next time the tap is used, you have, the body of the tap your basement is flooded. I've lived in my townhome for 4 years and winterize the outside spigot every fall by shutting off the water valve on the handle, plug the washbowl, and tap, and removing the bleeder cap inside on the outside of the house.
Water in the tube fails to drain, you are better off replacing the components be installed without a service valve. And for long trips, you could turn off the water with the tap handle so that kitty would have to turn sill-cocks where the water supply valve is shut off and they sure can siphon on the outside of the house. The parts and installation techniques shown in or the cat was running on the often go unnoticed.
Once you notice the freeze-proof spigot leaking, preventing freeze damage, but it does seem.
