Default How do your cats let you know Spring is here?

We can tell when spring is on the way when Tanada starts to feel her
cheeriotes. She's been arguing about custody of my desk chair, the
monitor, food, our bed, and anything else her little kitty heart
desires. Judging by both Lacey and Tanada, I'd say that spring has sprung.

Brenna really doesn't change her behavior. But she's young enough to
not care what the season is.

My mom's cat, however, starts wanting owowowout right nowowowow! Of
course, it's been several years since she became an indoor-only cat. She
doesn't get far before she either panics and races back inside, or
panics and freezes while hollering for Mom to come save her from the
big, bad Out.

An agoraphobic cat? Who doesn't know it?

Frank, who is glued to the bed most of the winter, gets more active when the
days get longer. He is more affectionate, demands more attention, wants to
play more. He scolds me for not bringing the Sun to His Balcony sooner.

About half my cats are hunters, and hunting becomes almost totally
pointless by late winter - the only prey species are hard to catch and
scarce warm blooded ones: mice, voles, birds. If it weren't for my
offerings of huge amounts of dry cat food, they would starve.

One night hunting is just like every other night for months: pretty
much nothing. The next night there are tens of thousands of small
frogs - plentiful and easily caught prey has returned. The frogs are
preoccupied with mating so catching them is mostly a matter of sitting
by the edge of a pond and waiting for them to stream by.

Spring has sprung when half the cats quit accepting the food offerings
I make to them and cat food comsumption plummets.

Pretty much, yeah. It's like she forgot just how big "out" is.
