Stubborn Cat Chris

We had a party Saturday afternoon for Rose’s staff. I moved the bikes outside and we put a table on the patio for food and refreshments. It was something different and too much for Chris to resist. He kept jumping on the table and we kept making him get down. But being a bad cat is in Chris’s nature so he would not stop getting on the table.

Rose wanted me to put him in the house so I pulled him off the table twice and put him inside. After the second time she realized the cat door was still open. I knew it was open but I felt bad about locking him inside. Rose didn’t feel bad and closed the cat door. That only worked until the first guest arrived and then Chris was on the patio the first time the sliding door opened.

The patio was just the first step. From there it was outside. The party was an outdoor event so people were constantly coming in and out of the patio and our bad cat Chris was constantly going outside with them. I would usually let him stay out for a little while because it was easier to watch him outside then try to keep him inside.

When I got tired of watching him I would put him back inside the patio. Sometimes I even put him in the house, but he would get out as soon as someone went inside to use the bathroom. He would then be completely outside when that person came back out. I sometimes feel like I have a two-year old child again.

It was a great party but it was also a long, exhausting day. I thought for sure Chris would be tired and let us sleep through the night. I thought wrong.

    Just Chris being a cat…not really a bad cat, just a cat. Cats are opportunists! We know how exhausting it was for you ’cause our pawrents wear themselves and us out trying to get us off the table and letting us in and out from the catio over and over all day long. And remember, there are eight of us. And a fun time was had by all! Have a furry good week. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

        Actually, we have a cat door, but it is from the catio to the outside and it is only for the three oldest of us who get to go in the yard. It is electronic and we wear a tag on our collar that unlatches it. Mom continues to talk about putting one from the inside of the house to the catio. It just hasn’t happened yet.

          Very interesting. I never heard of a door like that. Chris and Puck are not allowed outside unless I am watching them. We are not too far from a busy road and I worry about them getting hit by a car.

    I love the naughty nature of Chris. I have a bad car too! Maybe he is social- persistent Chris instead of Bad cat Chris … only an idea!

    Instead of chips and dip — It’s chips and Chris! MOL! .😺
