I love seeing that sisterly love!
Day two of the cats having access to the back yard came and went with no issues except for the time when Dewey caught a vole, Frankie killed it, and Archie carried it down to leave it on the deck outside the kitchen window. Team work!
So Fred opened the cat doors just before sun up yesterday, and the cats eventually wandered out for a look around. They mostly went outside early in the morning and again in the afternoon, but there were a couple of cats out there at any given point during the day. Alice hasn’t been outside, and neither has Newt, but the others go in and out pretty regularly. I’m sure that once the newness of the back yard wears off, Archie and Kara will start looking in earnest for ways to break out. Rest assured, I’ll be keeping an eye on them.
It hasn’t been hard to get them inside (we shut the cat doors at 5:00, before it gets dark), but I’m sure that as time goes on and they’re more comfortable out there, it’ll be harder. Just like at Crooked Acres, it’ll take them a while to get the hang of the routine.
