Catflap Capers and Cobwebs
We have had great fun over the past week teaching Misty the kitten to use the cap flap. While the weather was warm we could leave the front door open (while we were at home) and she could come in and out as she pleased. Now it is a bit chillier, the door has to stay shut most of the time. She has been sitting looking out of the catflap, and you could see the grey matter in her brain trying to work out how the other cats have materialised on the other side of the door.
We had a fun half hour with me sitting one side of the cat flap and OH sitting on the other, and pushing the kitten back and forwards through it. We tried really hard not to p*** ourselves laughing at the same time, but it was hilarious.
Well, she worked out how to get outside using the cat flap, but it took her a week to suss out the 'coming back in' stage of the operation. She is as happy as anything going in a out all the time. Her back legs are still a bit on the short side, and she has to drag them through the cat flap, cos, when her front legs are touching the ground on one side her back legs are 45 degrees in the air the other side! Bless.
I had an early start to work last saturday. It was really foggy where we live, but 10 mins away it was bright sunshine and glorious. Driving through the countryside all the hedges looked like they were covered in very fine net curtains, the spiders had been busy overnight and everything was covered with cobwebs glittering with dew - stunning.
