I took this cute picture of Annie Blue on Wednesday.
Since we lost Miss Kitty, Annie Blue has definitely become more of an outside cat than an inside cat. Maybe it's just her age, too, now that she's just over 1 year old. Maybe she's gaining confidence. Anyway, she spends much more time outside than she's in now, and I'm trying to change her schedule to suit OUR needs . . . but I don't know how much luck we'll have. Now that the seasons have changed and it's too cold outside to leave the door(s) open, she can no longer come and go as she pleases. And, her schedule seemed to be 'inside during the day and outside at night' . . . but then she meows for us to let her in in the MIDDLE of the night. (Not exactly our favorite time to have to wake up and pad downstairs.) So, I'm trying to get her to come in when I (the last one to bed) go to sleep at night. Some time it works, some times it doesn't. I'm hoping / assuming that once the snow falls, though, the problem will remedy itself and she'll choose to spend more time inside. Darn 'kids'! ;)
