He did this to me all the time and I was getting sick of it because everytime I had to open the door, there would be a frosty chill in the house for a little while.
I was always hesitant about letting my cat outside. I thought he might get himself hurt or killed, but he always tried getting out and eventually I just let him. He seemed to be the happiest cat in the world when he was out there. He had a lot of relatively safe places he could run off to so he could explore, but I was worried about him getting into the main road. I have seen plenty of dead cats in the road and it’s something that is truly heartbreaking. To my surprise, he stayed clear of the road. I honestly think he was afraid of all the cars that would pass by and that’s a good instinct to have! Well, everything was going fine for quite some time. I laughed when it would be frosty out and the cat would be clawing at the backdoor for me to let him in. He wanted to get back inside and relax next to the fireplace with me where the heating was cozy and wonderful. I can’t say that I was shocked when the cat would want to go right back outside after warming up next to the fireplace. He did this to me all the time and I was getting sick of it because everytime I had to open the door, there would be a frosty chill in the house for a little while. I was devastated recently though when he came back out of the cold and he couldn’t walk very well. I took him to the animal hospital and he had a fracture. Had to put a cast on his leg and he hasn’t been allowed to go outside, at least not until his leg is healed. Now he just relaxes with me next to the fireplace while we watch shows.
