Mondays are always a trial for the cats since they have gotten used to being able to go in and out, even if it was too hot to do so. The house doesn’t get that hot during the day but it does get a little stuffy. Opening the big door is nice, even if you don’t go out at all.
Calla was very happy to go out and feel the wind in her hair. And if the wind doesn’t cooperate, you can shake your head very hard to get the same effect.
Then you can scratch your back on the rocks and feel the breeze on your stomach, and maybe get a little scratch from anyone around at the moment…
And there are some choice biodegradable toys out there too – like this pine needle teaser that is a few needles stuck together at one end so that when you trap one the other two are still wiggling.
But when you are good, even the pine needle must submit to your will.
