What A Nice Surprise!

What a nice surprise we woke up to today! I couldn't believe my eyes when we had Mom check Diary Central. I, Mika, actually got my first ever DOTD! I was ecstatic! I happily hopped (Mom claims I stomped) up and down on Mom's lap. Then....I couldn't resist it....although I know Mom doesn't approve of boasting....I just had to boast to the other kitties that I, Mika, got DOTD today. At this point, Mom dumped me off her lap onto the bed and ran to the bathroom. When she got back, she told me to stop boasting. She then added that she had had to run to the bathroom because of something she calls my "fat cat bladder stomping act". Buddha and Gabriel, who were nearby, muttered something about Mom knowing how to put me in my place, whatever that means!

Thanks Catster Diary Person, for honoring me with DOTD today, and thank you friends for your appreciation of me and my diary.

 

My Gotcha Day

Today was my Gotcha Day. It's hard to believe I've been here a year already. When I first came here, I was used to being an indoor-outdoor kitty. However, here everyone is an indoor kitty. When I first came here I used to try to get out through the doors and windows. It took me a couple of months to finally realize that no matter how I tried, I couldn't get outdoors. Gradually I found out I like being an indoor only kitty. I like to sit on the window shelf and look out the window but I don't try to tear through the screen anymore. It wouldn't do me any good if I did try. Mom reinforced the screen with a barrier I can't get through just to be on the safe side. I like to sit on the cat tree and look out the big picture window in the living room too. There's plenty of toys and other kitties here to keep me entertained so I don't get bored. I find I don't even think about trying to get outside anymore. Mom says I'm living proof that an outdoor kitty can become a happy totally indoor kitty!

Thank you friends for the rosettes and the special gifts and thank you Meezers for my Gotcha Day picture. Thank you also for making the picture hide my somewhat pudgy (Mom says too fat) body MOL.

 

Forget About It!

Since being given freedom of the house, Mika has only one really frustrating problem. Having lived as an indoor-outdoor cat, he is very determined to get outdoors. I've had many other cats who were former outdoor cats or indoor-outdoor cats, but never have I had one as determined and persistent at trying to get out as Mika is. As time passes, I keep hoping his determination to get outside will lessen and he will accept life as an indoor cat. (Forget about it Mika, outdoors is too dangerous and you should be glad to be safely indoors!)

Mika doesn't try to dart through doors but he makes up for that by his strenuous efforts to try to get a window open. The windows are locked and the bedroom and living room windows also have indoor shutter style blinds that close across the lower windowpanes and latch. Mika has taken some of these blinds apart in his attempts to find a window he can pry open. Luckily it's easy to slide the blinds back onto their hinges to put them back together again.

Mika will paw at the windows, trying his best to get them to slide up or down. If a window is opened even a little bit, he will use his nose or paws to attempt to slide it upward more. I like to have windows open during cooler weather but I don't trust the screens to hold up against Mika's vigorous attempts to get outside. I've thought about trying to come up with a way to attach chicken wire to the outsides of the windows so that if Mika does tear up a screen, he still cannot get outside.

Does anybody have any ideas about how to attach chicken wire to the outsides of the screens or any other idea about how to reinforce the screens so that I can open windows without having to worry about Mika tearing through them and escaping?
