Re: Happy Holidays to All, now cat door

Well, I must have two very neurotic cats...Katie our female is perfectly
content to stay in...never even looks at the doors. And our male
Himalayan, Miko...you'd think after all his multiple escape attempts,
he'd learn that as soon as his paws hit the ground he freaks out and
wants right back in, but he still tries it...never stays out long unless
someone chases him to get him back then he takes a couple passes around
the yard before he bee-lines it for the door to get back inside. And in
a farming community with a huge feral cat population, it's safer for me
to encourage their fear of the great outdoors...too many wild tomcats
bent on causing trouble.

Subject: Re: [CHAT] Happy Holidays to All, now cat door

About my earlier post, thinking a cat box was a pet taxi, now I see
that<br>Jim and Marge mean a litter box. Still, even a litter box has
little to<br>do with a cat wanting to go out. I mean, sure, if you DON'T
have a box,<br>it could have everything to do with it. But if you do
have a box, fine -<br>but they still want to go out because,....well
because, they are in!<br><br>Kitty<br>> Cat box is in the garage, which
is why the cat door is between the <br>> kitchen and the garage. Yes, of
course, she's pulling my chain. That's <br>> what cats do for a living,
isn't it?<br>> <br>> <br>> On Monday, January 5, 2004, at 02:37 AM,
