Fun in the Sun

I believe in an ideal world, every indoor cat would have a cat-door leading to an outside area tightly enclosed by a cat-proof fence so the cat could come and go as they please. Of course, this is not an ideal world so we have to make due with what we have. In our case, I try to let the cats outside for a supervised “recess” once or twice a week.

I think being able to run around outside, eat grass and soak up the sun is good for them. I also think there are many dangers outside which is why I won’t let them out unless I have the time to make sure they stay close to the house. It can be difficult to watch them when both cats are out at once but Rose was out there yesterday for a second set of eyes.

They really enjoyed their time in the sun and both were in no hurry to go back inside when we tried to collect them.

      Chris is ALWAYS asking to go out or trying to slip past us when we open the door. He has always done that so I’m not sure if giving him a little time outside makes him expect it more or not. I would say he is a little worse after he has been out several times during a weekend.

    Reblogged this on Bad Cat Chris and commented:

    This video was taken at our last home where we had a somewhat enclosed back yard. It was relatively easy to keep an eye on the cats there until Frankie came along and needed to explore the entire neighborhood.

    Puck has not been outside since moving over a year ago. I tried once to put a harness on him and bring him out but he freaked out when a car went by before we even got out the door. Perhaps I will try again soon.
