First, you need to understand that kitty never goes out. She's an indoor cat. I can't remember back to when she used to sit in the window and bask in the sun...perhaps watching the birds outside. She's never been big on that kind of thing. We gave away the perch we used to have for her.
Back in the old house, she did get out once or twice... whereupon she would strut around the yard in a small square, and then go hide under the deck. <sigh>
In this house we have a nicely fenced in yard. Not a lot of grass yet - we're working on it! But, some plants, some holes the dogs have dug, and otherwise, a bit of an interesting landscape. Or so we thought.
I've taken the Grumpy Old Lady, aka Wabby Wibby, out twice this year. I put her on the grass and step back to see what she'll do. She's as likely to sit down and do nothing, as she is to nose about and explore. Just the other day, when little Onyx was visiting, he came out with us and his fascination with kitty got the better of him. He would not leave her side!
But, she wasn't in the mood to play! As you can see by the picture - she kept checking out the status of the sliding glass door!
Here's a video of the little guy hoping to get her to play with him, from Tout... too funny!
