I would like to call your attention to "Raising Duncan" posted on-line for
20 July: tinyurl.com/686vvo or
http://www.comics.com/comics/raising...-20080720.html

Those with indoor/outdoor cats are all too familiar with that scene.

Cats would like to figure out how to be on both sides of the door
simultaneously.

I like it when kitty goes to one door sees it raining, and tries another
door as if it is going to be nice and sunny there.

The other one I like is when kitty looks up at me as if to say "make it
stop raining!"

Actually, I think most cats would prefer that there were no doors, or at
least that all doors were always open. When my daughter was a teenager, we
had a rather large cat that would jump onto her bed and walk on her in the
night. She was a very light sleeper, so she started sleeping with her
bedroom door closed so he couldn't come in. One morning I was up before she
was. That particular cat walked up to her door and jumped on it.
Apparently it wasn't latched properly, because the door swung open. The cat
then walked away. You could see him thinking, "My job here is done."

Ours want to be let in one door and out another so they can get from
the back to the front yards. They are perfectly capable of getting
from one to the other without coming inside.

Makes me remember my mother yelling at us to stop running in and out
of the house.

Kids are just as bad. Sometimes I lock the front door just because I
can't stand to hear it open and slam one more time.

Annabel Lee (died 2002) was bad about wanting to dash out the door when I
got home. I kept her indoors-only because I live on a busy street, and
only 100 yards or so from a major highway. On a few occasions, she
dashed outside, found that it was raining, made an immediate U-turn, and
dashed back inside again.

You *******! Pouring all that rain on that poor cat!

The other one I like is the first frest snowfall with kitty hopping around
like a kangaroo to minimize ground contact.

And then doing the famous back-leg-shake: first one (shake shake shake)
and then the other (shake shake shake), all the while looking extremely
offended that such terrible stuff should have gotten *on* them.

I remember once seeing my father's cat have to cross through a puddle
about 3 inches deep. As each foot came out of the water, she would shake
it, then take a stride forward, placing that foot back in the water and
lifting and shaking a new foot. It was comical to watch.

Suki must have been auditioning for the new Cat messiah. She very nearly
managed to walk on water as she tried to cross a full bath.

She wasn't as wet I had thought she'd have been for a cat that had taken a
bath, but still approached Pickle for help with the post-bath licking.
Pickle did help out for bit, beforehe boxed her ears. I think it was that
"I'll help, but don't be so damn stupid next time, you idiot" sort of
ear-boxing. Those two very much remind me of Ebenezer and Snooch from two
lumps.

Shadow is just, well, Shadowcat.
