Have a look at my profile pic. These 2 have a catflap fgs, why do they persist in waiting to be let in?!?
And sometimes howling at the door/scratching at the door?
I mean it's kind of funny and I admit we usually give in and open the door for them but if you were a cat wouldn't you prefer to just come in rather than wait on some idiot human to let you in?
Sometimes i wonder if they forget they have a catflap (a la Mog!) so I'm being mean not letting them in, other times i think i'm the stoopid one for giving in and opening the door. What do you all think?
It is not just a cat trait... my Yorkie used to knowck on the catflap until somebody came to open the door (the big one) for her. The ridiculous part of the situation was that she has no problems to go out when she wanted but she demanded some attention to get in...
Ours do it too and it drives me mad. We have four, so it's a lot of time opening the back door or the kitchen window. One of them would rather sit at the kitchen window for an hour in the cold waiting for it to be opened than come through the catflap herself. What's that about??
My cat does this. My DD2 on the other hand has made it her life's work to try to climb out of the cat flap, not realising that as a porky 18-month old she has no chance! If I pop outside to the shed, I come back to find little hands reaching out of the flap
