Can’t Keep a Good Cat Down. Or Inside.

Time for a proper Day of the Cat entry…

Ever since I moved into my parents home in the suburbs, the cats have been especially keen about getting outside. I guess birds and chipmunks are more appealing to them than hobos and rats. I’ve been taking my sweet time trying to figure out if it’s really safe for the cats, but Calliope decided to let me know this weekend she’s a big girl cat.

After spending a rainy Saturday chasing down Calliope every time she escaped, I gave up and let her stay outside. She returned, unmarked and obviously thrilled that she had gotten her way. So on Sunday, I let her and Chloe explore outside.

Calliope’s real interest in going outside? A new food source.

And after a long day exploring, they both collapsed on my bed looking as adorable as can be.
