Escape from Al-CAT-raz

Greetings, Effurryone!

It is I, Caspurr, King of the Tigger Tabbies. I want to tell you how We have managed to Get the Better of Mummy.

As you know, whenever She wants to cook or eat, or when the Cleaning Lady is here, She shuts Us up in the Bedroom.  Most of the time, when that happens, We just Snooze, either in the Wardrobe or in whatever sunpuddles may be available (and they have been pretty scarce lately). In fact, sometimes they are so small, We have actually shared the same sunpuddle, all three of Us, although Trixie usually prefurrs to do without Sunshine, rather than curl up with Us Boys.

On Furr-iday, however, We decided that We were tired of being impurrisoned whenever She wants Us out of the Way, so We put our heads together and came up with a plan to break out. 

We had come to the understanding that the key to opening the Bedroom Door (no pun intended - MOL) was by purr-essing on the door-handle. Being the biggest and the strongest, that task fell to Me (with a little help from Shimshi). So he and I took it in turns to jump up and purr-ess it and when the door finally opened a crack, Trixie made a dash for Freedom, followed by Shimshi and Yours Truly.

Mummy, who was busy pre-purring the Shabbat meal, was so surprised. At furrst, she couldn't understand how We had got out. She thought maybe She hadn't closed the Bedroom Door propurrly. She chased after Us and returned Us, one by one, to the Bedroom. It was only when She had shut Us inside again, and heard Us jumping over and over again at the door, that She realised what had happened.

To Our Delight - and Mummy's Dismay - it appears that the Bedroom Door can only be locked from the Inside.
But We took pity on Mummy and remained inside till She had finished cooking - and, as a reward, She gave Us our Lunch a little earlier than usual.

What do YOU do when your Humans shut you away in one of the rooms?

Please join me for my fourth Birthday party. We are having some games and party foods. Possibly a rat hunt in the garden. I am discouraged from catching anything but it is fun to look.

Ooh! You clever things!! On the rare occasion I get locked in anywhere I pretend not to care and look very disdainful when they finally let me out!! It certainly gives them pause, before I give them paws! GEddit? MOL

Sometimes I get shut into the bedroom. When that happens, I usually just snooze on the bed until the mom lets me out. ~Wally

You are clever kitties. My cats hate to be locked out of an area and try to dart back in when they get the chance. Our door knobs are old and hard to turn so they can't open them.

You're so smart to figure out how to open the door. When I'm closed up in a bedroom, I usually just find a place to go to sleep. But when I'm closed out of the humans' bedroom I stand outside the door and meow & paw at it.

I ask to come i or out...I jump on the door...push and shove...reach under it if I can/..I's all so pitiful. Lever door handles are a snap once you turn your mind to them... I wish we had them here!

In times of small sunpuddles, sharing very closely is permitted without any feeling of "too close". Sunpuddles trump "too close" every time.
