'Ol Warrior Cat can't seem to stay out of trouble. He got into another cat fight yesterday morning. It doesn't appear that he suffered any wear or tear but he sure was worn out.
When I got home from my part time job around noon, my wife told me she thought he had been in a fight because he was just lying around and not trying to supervise everything she was doing. I went back to the horse barn and found him in a sun beam under a wheelbarrow. A quick once over didn't reveal any serious damage so I put him back down.
After lunch I went back out to check on him and found him in the same spot napping. "That's it, pal," I told him, "You're going inside." I picked him up and carried him back to the house, up the stairs to the bedroom and laid him on his favorite fleece blanket. And that is where he stayed except for a quick dinner, a drink of water and visit to the kitty litter. He was one worn out orange tabby cat!
This morning...well, he's already groomed Rocky, run around a bit, and is currently begging to go back outside.
I wish we had the fortitude to just say "NO, you're never going outside again!" We're hoping the encroaching winter weather will give us the opportunity to keep him inside more and more.
We've been pretty lucky to at least make him stay inside at night without him carrying on too much. Maybe we can keep him inside during the daytime longer and longer through the cold winter. Mr. Stuffy Pants HATES being cold!
