So, I think my cat is trying to train me.
Last might between 2 and 3 in the morning, I was awakened by the boy cat pawing on the window pane to be let in. All the bedrooms are ont eh second story so he was on the roof, and usi9ng his most pathetic meow.
He did this lonce last year, and I go the ladder and he came over to me and I took him down the ladder with me, but he didnt' really like doing that. Interesting enough, the girl cat was on the roof the very next day last year fter the boy cat, oly she got down by herself.
So, back to last night... I got the ladder, but this time he would not come hear me, but just kept walking back and forth in front of the windows and pawing at the window panes while using his most pathetic meows.
Now, I realize that if I opened the window and took the screen off to let the cats in, that they would then insist on coming in that way, so I just refuse to do it. Although I think that is the new 'trick" the cats are trying to train me to do.
So, I gave up on the ladder, put it away and just sat int eh lving room for about 15 minutes, then open th efront door and called Jango (the boy cat), and I could her him meowing up on the roof still, but I just closed the door.
Five minutes later he showed up at the back door. So, I won this round. I do admit though that I did entertain thoughts of having a cat door put into one of hte screens of my bedrron window, just so these training session ordeqls are greatly shortened to where I am not up for over half an hour in the middle of ht enight
