Don't Close the Door!

If I stay right in the doorway, you can't close
it - Princess.

My humans are really funny about doors.  They keep closing them. It's really silly.  They have a perfect way to get from one room to the other, and they close it.

This morning I saw Mum was closing the bedroom door.  I went running, but got there just after the door closed.

I yowled and pawed at the door and Mum opened it and asked if I wanted to come in.

Of course I wanted to come in!

I came inside the bedroom, but then Mum closed the door again!

I yowled and pawed at the door.

Mum opened it, and I started to go out, but stopped halfway.  That would stop her, I thought.

Instead she pushed me a bit further and closed the door behind me.

I yowled and pawed at the door, and I yowled and reached under the door.  Mum said I could wait until she got dressed for the day.  I wouldn't have had to wait if she'd just left the door alone.

In the end I had to wait forever: at least two minutes, probably three, maybe even four, before she opened the door again.

Seriously, do I look naive? - Princess
The whole time I was yowling and reaching under the door, and pawing at the door and Mum cruelly ignored me.

That's not the only door I have trouble with.  There are doors to the world at both ends of my house, and Mum won't let me go through them. Sometimes she puts me in my box to go visit the vet, but she won't ever let me walk through those doors.  She says I'm too naive and don't understand the dangers of the outside world.

But the humans go through those doors.  Fanta goes through those doors. One of them she can only go through with her lead on, but she still goes through both of those doors.  Bumpy goes through the doors, because he pees on the humans and bites them and things like that if they don't let him do just whatever he likes.

So I'm the only one who can't go through the doors to the world.  That's really unfair!

Anyway, now I'm going to go and sit in the middle of the bedroom doorway, in case Mum thinks she's going to close that door again.

  1. Keep going, Princess : we had the same problem, and finally, with a lot of patience and a lot of training, we succeeded in making our humans get door stoppers to let us goes here and there. The only door that is always closed is the front door : we cannot explore the country... Purrs
