Frankie’s Favorite Place

Last week Frankie discovered how to get from the house to the patio using the cat door. He has loved the patio since we first introduced him to it and suddenly he could go out there whenever he wanted to. The problem was, he apparently didn’t realize that the cat door worked in both directions.

We came home after work one evening to find Frankie at the door wanting to come in. I don’t know how long he was out there but I did know he needed to learn how to get into the house before we left for work the next day. I tried a couple of times to put him in front of the cat door and open it so he could see it worked both ways but he would not pay attention. He just walked away like he was bored. Finally I picked him up and gently shoved him through the door. I felt bad doing it but I did not want him to go on the patio and then not be able to get back inside where his food and litter is.

Since then he goes out and comes back in at will. He likes lying on the chair and watching the goings on of the outside world but he does not like Chris out there bothering him.

Fortunately, he discovered a place where he can be relatively free of other annoying cats (or should I say cat?) and still have a great view of outside.

Now, if we haven’t seen Frankie for a while, we have a good idea where to look first.

    He is adorable! and we did the push through the flap too…think we all have at some stage..when we attached the enclosure here from the bathroom window we had flies coming hubby made a flyscreen flap…that took just a short time to get used to it….but it seems all is settling at your place which is great πŸ™‚ hugs Fozziemum

      Thanks. Those flaps are great and cats love the freedom it gives them but some cats take longer to figure it out than others. Chris figured it out quickly. Puck took longer but now I worry about him because he flies through it without slowing down.
