The weather continues to be beautiful here on the panhandle of Florida in late January. It is a bit cooler and will get cold at night for the next couple of nights, but it is still warm enough to be outside without a jacket during the day…downright hot in the sun.
Allie wants to spend as much time as possible outside. When one of us is outside, she can be on her leash. Otherwise, she has to go in her pen.
When we are putting on her leash to go out the door, we tell her she has to get in her pen. Generally, she trots down the steps and into the pen right away (though I would not trust her to do it if she were not on a leash!) She meows when she wants to come into the camper. When we go to get her, she trots up the steps and into the camper for a snack or necessary stop before asking to be let out again. Veegee just looks out the screen door.
When she cannot go out, Allie wants to look out the windows. When the blinds are closed she paws at them until we open it for her OR if we are not available to open the blind, she takes matters into her own paws.
She paws a spot open on the side of the blind and slips between the blind and the window to make herself comfortable. I hope our blinds can tolerate the treatment!
Frequently, the “ladies” are found on the end of the bed, relaxing and supervising us as we move about the lower level of the camper. They hop down for snacks or pittypats. In the background of this picture you can see two of their favorite things, folding nylon cubes we bought at Walmart for less than $4 each.
The cubes are great for napping. The only bad things about them is, if one of the cats goes to sleep in one before we get in bed, we have to find room for cat AND cube in the bed with us for the night!
