but so what?
So, this morning, Spot wanted in. It’s cool outside, the heater is on and I’d shut the doors. I open the door. “Come on, Spot, get in, I’m not keeping the door open”. He comes in. Skippy is right behind him. Not sure if he’s gonna come in or not. I shut the door, he stands there, looking at the door, looking so pitiful.
I open it. “Come in!” After doing this about ten times, he decides he wants to be with Spot and comes inside. They eat a little, then go into the main part of the house. Then into the garage. I follow. “Hey, Spot, let me show you something…”
I pick him up and show him how the cat door works. I pushed it open, held it that way with my hand, then put him in it and he walks outside. I opened it for Skippy and he followed Spot. Then Spot turns around and comes right back in, he’s got the cat door down after one try. Skippy, on the other hand, stands outside nudging it with his nose. And cries. “I want in, please let me in!”
I guess he’s still traumatized by that trap being on the other side of the door. He’ll get over it.
