Hi!
My kitty constantly tries to sneak out the door everytime we open it. The thing is, I live in a block, on the third floor, so the door leads to 3 flights of stairs. While it bugs me, I don't mind running for the kitty, but I'm guessing the neighboors won't find it so fun and, especially, my new roommates.
I used to live with my boyfriend on the first floor, so this wasn't such a huge issue. But since I'm already bringing 2 cats with the new roommates, I don't want them to start running for the youngest one across the stairs. Is there anyway to teach my kitty NOT to sneak out the door?
Thanks!
