Bad Cat Tag Team

Here is a post from February 1, 2015, for Throwback Thursday. Things haven’t changed much.

Bad Cat Chris

Ripped screenWe got up Sunday morning and discovered the window screen near the front door was tore to shreds at the corner near the door. We knew right away it was Frankie because he “picks” at the screen when he wants to go outside, and he wants to go outside a lot lately. It doesn’t help that he is an inside kitty and is not allowed outside because, unlike Chris, he is a runner.

Frankie has been picking at the screen for months and has not caused more damage than a couple of small holes, this seemed like an act of desperation.  I made a mental note to try to put the harness and leash on him again.

      Part of the reason I started taking Frankie for a walk is so that he could get used to the smells and sights so he would not get lost if he did escape. Of course, I would still worry about cars, cayotes, and bad people.
