Last night was warm, so Mom opened the front porch for me, and also opened some of the big windows in the studio. It was good. After dark, it is a good place to watch what is going on outside. Suddenly I saw something I did not like - an introoder. I raced off my kitty condo in the studio and ran the whole length of the house, onto the porch, and only the screen door stopped me.
Mom was right behind me. I was hissing, but I jumped back into the house. Mom shut the door to the front porch. I was upset, and told her so.
Apparently the screen on the screen door is old and was partially torn. When I ran into it, I made a hole. Mom was worried I could get through it and outside, so she closed the door to the porch. Later she found a piece of plexiglass, (Mom says it is plastic but clear like glass) and taped it over the part of the screen with the hole. Now I can go out there safely, but Mom has to replace the screen very soon.
Mom says because we are out in "the country" there are lots of wild things around us, and and I am going to have to get used to that.
