He frequently stares outside pensively like he's got something important that he's supposed to be doing and it's *out there*.
I was getting the front end view of that pose for a year, and now this.
So a couple times he's jumped outside and I let him. I'm morally opposed to outdoor cats as they don't have as long of a lifespan as indoor cats. I've started to wonder though, is he happy inside? Because I'm confident that a lion can live a longer life in a cage too, but is that really where he wants to be?
So come spring, I may toy with the idea of letting Boo be an indoor/outdoor cat. I'll hope he comes in at night because, let's face it, the loss of his dangly bits and the never ending cat food bowl has given him a little bit of a trailer park waddle. I'm no longer sure he can outrun a coyote.
But don't tell Jingles that, because he's kicking his ass on a regular basis.
