Longest TimeOut Ever!

That's what my granddaughter Hope called it when Siren and Isadora were restricted to "their room".

Whenever there are a lot of people in the house or if the doors are opened and closed often it's safer for the cats to be contained. Siren is anxious about everything and Isadora brings a whole new meaning to curiosity.

During Hurricane Sandy they spent more time in there than usual since it was dark and there were generator cords everywhere.

Hope was concerned. They would paw at the door and cry to her. She sang to them and told them stories.

She would mumble as I passed - "this is the longest timeout ever!"







The screen door was originally installed when Siren came to us with all his wild aggressive behavior. It's a great way to keep animals restricted to an area while allowing them to feel part of the scene.

What a sweetness Hope is. Imagine singing to the kitties in there perceived time out. Angel face!

I like the idea of a screen door to keep the cats out of harm's way but not overly isolated. I may have to remember that!

Oh love Hope...she is beautiful and so smart..Yes we all have a time-out room for our cats..but when we use it is for time out.. One cat Elliott has a breakdown when anyone comes over, any strange noise, thunder, ..you get the idea..

while Rose was still with us i often wished for a screen door ... we thought - WRONG - that Jack was the bad cat peeing on the pillows .. now we know it wasn't and the door to the bedroom can stay open .. should the need ever arise again I will be in touch

Oh that is too cute. I just love it when little children get concerned about animals. She is one cute child too. Good for her to worry about the cats. Take care.

Your kitties made a real sacrifice during that storm! They probably don't even realize how lucky they were that you took such good care of them.
