After a horrible four weeks of having to stay inside to get used to the new
construction site house, we finally opened the door to the porch so the cats could take their first real sniff at freedom.
Lilly couldn’t really believe her luck. She stormed to the door, went through, walked around and ran back in. Maunzerl was a bit confused at first but definitely curious.
Lilly’s second attempt involved snow and resulted in an immediate return to the safety of our living room. In her third attempt she made it all the way to the garage by walking alongside the house where the snow was already melted as Maunzerl was looking on, not quite daring to follow her yet. We have happy cats now.
The sweet smell of freedom
Making sure I can safely retreat
walking alongside the house where there’s no more snow
Maunzerl is enjoying the view of Lilly’s backside from a safe distance
then gets more curious – but that’s about it
Both cats are now at home and are peacefully sleeping in their usual spots.
