I finally decided to let the cat out of the house. After moving into our new place in the city, I was hoping to keep her indoors for quite awhile but she had different ideas. Too many years of roaming our property in the country gave her a love for the outdoors. She has been prowling the house crying and clawing the doors to get out and so after a month I relented. She seems perfectly happy to sit in the back courtyard and soak up the sun, for now anyway.
