A Nice Walk and Then a Freak-Out

Chris is a master at escaping. He knows how to stand back far enough and seem like he is not interested and then he is out the door like a flash. He typically stays close and I usually give him a few minutes before bringing him back in.

Frankie will run and make it a nightmare for anyone to catch him so he doesn’t get out as much, but I do feel guilty that Chris goes out and not him, so occasionally I put his harness on and take him for a walk. I did that last week and he was very happy about it.

After Frankie’s walk I wanted to let Puck go for a walk. He has not been outside since moving here so I put the harness on him, which was not easy, and opened the front door. I knew he would be a little shy at first but thought he would enjoy being outside. Unfortunately, we never made it that far.

A car drove by, which happens all the time when the door is closed, but this time Puck panicked and freaked out. He has been a bit more nervous lately and has been over-grooming himself to the point of licking himself bald so I have to pack him up now and bring him to his vet’s appointment.

      He can be a nervous wreck at times, although, he is not as nervous as our other black cat was. Flash died at only five years old from multiple health problems that could have been caused by stress.
