I got to go out on the back porch today for a little while. It was fun and a little scary. I yearn to go out more, especially when the bright light in the sky warms me, but mom is so careful about me going out that I think that she is too careful. Blackie was on the porch. He lives in the garage with the other cats.Only Sweetie and I live in the house. Sometimes Lucy gets to come in, but not Pugsy. I heard that he and Blackie do bad things on the rug so they can't come in. At first I thought that it was my fault that they can't come in because when I did bad things on the rug, mom got a funny light that showed up many bad spots which Pugsy and Blackie had put there long before I came along. Mom's cleaned everything up pretty well, but she says 'boys will be boys'. So I'm the only boy allowed in the house. Sometimes I envy the boys their garage life. It seems so exciting! They have clean beds and food bowls and potty boxes AND they get to go outside anytime they want!
