All I Want for Christmas is a Front Door Key

Donna and Kain

The Diary of Mr Kain

All Pets Want for ChristmasI’m not a big fan of cat flaps. You expect a tuxedo cat as graceful as I am to squeeze in and out of some little flashy door? I think not. Those covered litter trays Beardface provides are bad enough but at least we’ve finally convinced him to remove the flaps. Dignity and modesty are thus preserved. Infinitely more civilised than squatting outdoors.

However, I am an adventure cat and I do enjoy my little forays into the wild. Much in the same way as Frizzy Hair enjoys ‘camping’ if it’s in a five star tented room with double bed and separate shower. Alas, I kid you not. I need to be able to enjoy my freedoms at my own preferred times and not be constantly having to wait for Beard Face to let me in or out.

As can be evidenced from the video below, I do know how to open the door.

Granted, once I locked them both out by accidentally dropping the latch but forgive and forget. Now, if I had a front door key, I’m sure I could master getting in as easily as I’ve mastered getting out. Well, I would master it if they would leave that top bolt off.

Honestly, what’s an independent cat to do?

Rest of the All Pets Want for Christmas Hop



Mr Kain

Just an elegant cat, slightly bored with the world, living with my owners (Beard Face and Frizzy Hair) and five feline brothers (Razz, Charlie, Buggles, Bilbo and Frodo). Give me strength!

  1. Such an adventurous and independent cat you have there! I wonder if Santa will get the cat a key this year?

    We will have to put in a good word to Santa….

      Yes, we have a tendency to get our way in the end. I have applied many strategies to getting through the front door but all have failed so far. I am confident that Santa will bring me a key this year though.

  2. Now, opening the door… hmmm but why would you want to go outside? Locking them out? Perhaps but my kibble is on top of the fridge…. wait with a tour of doom positioned just right *plotting* Kain, you and I need to talk!

      I like the outdoors. It beats being in the house. Frizzy Hair is nice enough but Beard Face is a nightmare to live with. The outdoors is a taste of freedom that I relish.
      We must meet one day, Asrielle, and make plans together. I can be cunning when I want to but if it's malevolence you're after I can always send Charlie your way.

      Yes, I'm not the greatest but the intent is there. I will master that door thingy one of these days. Just you wait and see :)
