Of my two cats, Bella is the one always wanting outside. Cha Cha will run away like the devil is on her tail if you try to bring her anywhere close to the door, but Bella loves outside. The problem is....there are too many places for her to escape. The woods behind the house, UNDER the house, into the crotchety neighbors' yard (where she WILL call animal control), etc....so I don't let Bella outside. I feel for her though, because she loves to roll around in the grass and dirt.
So, what did I do? I went and bought her her very own plot of grass. She's slept next to it all weekend.
How's that for guilt?
