6 of my 8 cat kids went outside this afternoon--well actually 7--Pruney came out but then hung on the screen and ran back inside the first chance he got--aabout 30 seconds later. Mabel wanted to come out, but she chickened out at the last minute. Lulu and Boo really enjoyed it, Dulcinea was brave and went exploring, as did Othie Marie--then I let the rest out too--Moody stuck close to the door, Habibi looked around and went for a little stroll around the yard. Most of mine have never been free outside--it was kinda scary for my littlest guys, Pruney and Mabel. I could tell they really wanted to go out but when they'd hear even a tiny little noise, they would do an about face and run the other way. Poor little things--missing out on something really fun because they are too afraid--sounds like me when I was a kid. They all loved walking in the grass and the dirt. Chased bugs, sniffed the air, peed on the deck (LOL), got cobwebs and leaves stuck to our faces--oh, we had a grand time! I just hope I haven't created a monster and that they try to dart out the door now. Not sure how often I will do it, but they sure had fun today.
