Today’s picture of Sir Charles & Prince Finn, which takes a look at their patio life, also comes with a story. Now they’re not proper “outdoor cats,” just “patio cats” for a few reasons:
- Charles would survive but he’s used to being coddled and is too much of a scaredy cat to be out too long
- Finn is too dumb to survive in the wild
- I’ve trained them like dogs so they know their boundaries on the patio
So as some of you may know, Charles did do a little escape trip a few weeks back. During the middle of the night (sometime after 2am when we last saw him) he climbed out through one of our skylights on the top floor of our place. A few hours later, when I woke up to give them their breakfast, Finn came running as always but Charles was no where to be found. I looked in all of his usual hiding spots but he wasn’t there then I realized the skylights were left open just a bit further than normal. I climbed on roof, calling his name and looking on both of our neighbors patios but to no avail. So we figured we needed to go search for him 3 stories down on street level. We walked down the mews next to us calling his name but nothing. As we got back to the main street we decided to head towards the park because, if I were a cat, I’d head for a ton of trees to climb. Luckily as we walked by our front door calling his name we heard some meowing from behind the door of the shop next to us. there he was, a bit dirty and acting like nothing happened. It’s pretty amazing that he was somehow able to get down there unscathed as well as pretty much know where our front door is but I think that was about as brave as he’ll ever get as he’s stuck close to home ever since.
So without further ado, your Whiskers Wednesday pics direct from our patio to your screen!
