Then they keep to their end.
One of the conditions for the cats going outdoors is they are able to negotiate a cat door (we do have a few who don't/can't, but they've been here since kittens and just never learned). When we got back from our walk this morning, Rocky was outside. Where he still is. And he's digging it.
When we got home from the movie last night, it was around 9:30. Rocky was in the bedroom window. I got all of the cats in and fed them. I guess Spot got annoyed that he couldn't get up in the window, so he did. And Rocky got down. Rocky started checking out other rooms in the house. And ended up in the garage. Where he was this morning when we got up. One of the first things I do in the morning is open all of the cat doors and I'm sure he saw cats going in and out and he followed suit.
And I'm pretty happy with how things are going. I saw him pee in a litterbox last night (in the living room), I saw him eating out of the feeder in the garage this morning and I saw him poop outside in the dirt this morning (boy, did he go to town scratching in the dirt, he looked like he was having a great time). He's doing all the things he needs to do. The other cats aren't bothering him much, more curious than anything. He's been a little jumpy when Brian's equipment kicks on, but it won't be long before he's accustomed to all of the different sounds here.
