Content Kitty

When we go to Geoff's condo, with its fresh air and many windows, Scarlett's mood visibly lifts. She is less snarly toward Melly, less likely to snap and jab at humans, and seems to actually have a spring in her step. I think she really misses being an outdoor cat and this gives her a taste of that old life. It's always really tough to get her back into her carrier when we leave, and I feel terrible bringing her back to my basement cave apartment.

Aw, Scarlett, it's hard to give something up, especially something you really enjoy.

When Annie still was alive, there was less fighting in the house during the warmer months when everyone could go out into our enclosed back space and enjoy some fresh air and greenery. We do think it makes a difference, but not every kitty has that option. And of course some, who've had traumatic experiences on the streets, often prefer to be indoor-only.

It´s berry nice to come out sometimes :)
Me am a lucky cat that have a lot of windows to look out from :)

Poor Miss Scarlett! Would she like a kitty funhouse for some outdoor time at your place?

Rene said...

Oh Scarlett, it's much better being indoors instead of outdoors. You do look happy out there, though.

Scarlett, you do look very happy outside! It's kind of like a kitty vacation where you have to go back to the real world inside. Our mommy feels the same way when she has to leave the beach and come back home in the valley.

Scarlett you look so happy out there...wishing the world was a safer place and all the kitties could be indoor/outdoor...

Mine love going in to the garage for some almost outside time...peaking under the cracks in the door and sitting on the car to look out the windows...fun, but I know they'd love to run in the grass more...
