I’m wondering if the colder weather has enticed a mouse into the house. The cat’s antsy, and wants to check out all the less used spaces behind closed doors — the storage under the stairs, the utility room, etc.
She rid us of a couple of mice a few years ago that sneaked in from the garage. Didn’t kill them, but caught them and brought them to us, and we released them outdoors.
She’s certainly fixated:
Ensconced in her cat cave, yet vigilant. The door to the under-stairs storage is about three bounds straight ahead, and is slightly ajar for access.
And yes, Daddy’s sweatshirts are great for sleeping on, under, in. . .
So are his outdoor fleeces, if he forgets to hang one up and just tosses it on the chair : -). That scenario results in a mass of cat hair matted onto the fleece.
