Threatening Thursday

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.


Well.

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.

Sigh.

Goodness, gracious me, Millie..........living in the country has a few small drawbacks - be careful!

Wowza Millie - it's all happening for ya! Perhaps it wasn't something that you didn't like - but something that you DID like, like a mousie or rabbit?

Being brave about evil skwerls, and other kitties, is one thing. Being brave about foxes or raccoons is quite another. And here in New Hampster we also have coyotes and bobcats, and fisher cats (weasels).
Your mom is right to make sure you can't get out.

Oh my Millie, that must have been traumatic! You must have been really scared. Glad your Mom was able to remedy the situation for the time being.

We saw the picture first and the explanation of the plexiglass after. So we thought mebbe we should mention this stuff called "hardware cloth". Its really 1/2" wire mesh, but much stronger than door screen. So it would let you have safe door whiffies...
