This is Chester. He’s got his ‘I want to go outside now’ face.
We’ve had this discussion many times in the past.
The answer is ‘No!’
Several of his predecessors thought it would be a great idea to go outside, chase some birds, frolic in the grass, chase some cars.
And finished up road kill.
After the second such fatality, we decided the next cat, Chester, was going to be an indoors cat.
He goes outside, when we hold him.
He knows the rules.
Any, yes, he’s still waiting, just in case I change my mind.
