Today I was a bad cat owner. Gizmo got out while I was answering the door and I didn't realise, so I shut him out in the pouring rain. Was oblivious until half an hour later when he appeared at the back door wailing like a soggy banshee. Maybe this will cure his longing for outside.

I've never had an indoor cat and didn't think I would. But everyone says not to let ragdoll cats outside because (I may be paraphrasing here) they're so soppy they'll basically lie in front of cars going HELLO NEW FRIEND. We are on a pretty quiet road, and the most colourful wildlife we have AFAIK is foxes. (There is definitely at least one fox. Yes I mean you, manky garden-shitting fox.) But all the advice has made me paranoid, and certainly the cat has NO instinct to defend himself from marauding toddlers. He would lie there and let Egdog stomp on his belly if I didn't run interference whenever they're in the same room together. So we have decided to keep him in, or possibly we have put off deciding whether to let him out. Poor bugger gack. The world is full of bees to eat and they're almost always on the wrong side of the glass.
