Luxie is on the Porch Again!
Some of you may remember that last summer, we started letting Luxie on the porch. I propped something in front of the cat door and let her stay out on the porch a little bit each day.
However, one day she figured out how to move the thing I had blocking the cat door out of the way and was halfway down the stairs before I discovered her!
I ran around the outside and scared and she ran back up the stairs. However from that day forward anytime I let her out on the porch, she immediately went to the cat door and started trying to get out again. She had a little taste of freedom and wanted it again.
The big problem is that she is a huge scaredy cat. I'm afraid if she ever got outside, we'd never get her back in. She would be hiding someplace in terror.
This week, I've started letting her back out again, but only when I am out there. So, I've started drinking a cup of tea or a cup of coffee after lunch and sitting out there for 15 minutes. I figure it's good for her and it's good for me too. It feels nice to stare off into our yard, instead of staring at a computer screen!
It's working good, except that every time I come upstairs (my computer work station is in the basement) she runs to the back door, hoping to go out on the porch again.
For my artsy photo, I used Topaz Labs Plugin.
