Cats on Tuesday: In thru the out door


Sir Tristan,Tabby Cat,Domestic Cat

Having learned the existence of two doors in the house, Tristan likes to use them both...the front one to go out and the back one to come in. He rarely comes in the front one, but if I refuse to let him out the front door, he will sometimes appeal to the back door the right to go outside. This usually results in my hissing at him as we can argue "no" until the earth stands still.

Diamond on the other paw only uses the front door. The back door is only used on special occasions, like when we are bar-b-queing on the patio.

Tristan usually spends most of the day inside. when I get home at night he expects to be fed, eats and then asks to be let out. Half an hour later, he will want to come back in, usually meowing at the back door for entrance. Sometimes he'll scratch a the glass, but he usually vocalizes when he wants in or out.

He'll come in an munch down on any left overs from dinner - he's a chow hound, Diamond eats at much more sedate pace - then will head over the front door and ask to be let out again.

So I get more exercise these days, acting as doorman for a tabby cat!

This piece used the Blinged out Christmas Taggers kit from Creations by Jo. The reindeer are courtesy of Mrs. Homer Lynn, and the Love Santa hat comes to use from Kim B's Designs. The snow globe is a creation of Deviant Designer and the Ornaments are all from Tirza's Treasure. The Silver Twilight alpha is courtesy of Amber Gray Designs.

I've not posted this one yet. I thought to use it on his blog to day, but as the "Tris-mas" carol was "Blue Tris-mas" I felt I needed to do something blue so...

I ran him through the photoshop color filter and low and behold, we have a blue, blue Tristan although his brown coat doesn't take to blue as well as to other colors. The Scraps used in the layout are from the Winter Wonderland taggers kit, a FTU pressie from Designs by Ali off her blog.

The Feltie snowman is from C.C. Designs, and "Perry the Penguin" is by Tee's Scraps. The Snow Alpha courtesy of lamalamontero.blogspot.com and the Icy (blue) alpha is from Bits'N'Bobs.

That's the best decision you took this year to join COT, lol ! Welcome ! It's always so funny when cats use us as doorman (or women) When they guide you to the front door and you open it, they suddenly think that the back door is better ! Or they stand in the middle and think it over, poor us !!

We wish that Ma would let us out, but we're city cats and she's afraid we'd get squished.

Tristan seems to know how to keep a secret: The back-door and how to vanish in peace and secret.
