When I left today to go to church, I left the window of the office (computer room) open. We had icky, sticky, stormy weather yesterday and last night, so I thought Grace & Company would like to sniff the clean outdoor air. They love it when that window is open.

Well, I forgot to close it before I left ... which I've done before, but there haven't been any mishaps. Today, however, when I got home, the window was still open about 10 inches, and the screen was off. My heart was pounding! So I ran indoors and started counting cats; then I ran into the office and shut the window. All three are here, with no extra neighborhood cats in the house! All three seem fine, except that they're now sticking to me like glue! Anne says I need catcams to know what they do in here whenever I'm gone.

The photos below show the screen before I put it back on, plus several pix of the tufts of fur that are out there. Now to go and inspect cats for any possible injuries -- I think it'll be Audace, if anyone.

UPDATE: I've run my hands over all three, and there don't seem to be any injuries -- but then I know they don't always show up right away. I'll keep checking. I think, though, that they were more mentally shaken than anything -- they're so spoiled with this whole house (and no outdoors) to romp around in!

Wow none of you escaped? When I was a kitten I pushed out a screen and spent a few hours on the roof until Ma found me. She was not happy.-Sultanfus

Introoders will not be tolerated! They protected their home turf quite well!

Only weirdos do that.

Well, Mister Crap, we happen to think Cat Cam's are a great idea.

Your kitties were so smart to ward off the intruders and not get lost outside! Mommy is sorry that you were scared! She would have been too!
