Well, today Blossom had an experience.... It probably taught her something.
Husband got off today two hrs after I left for work. So, since it was a short period of time, I left her and Muffin in the house together... I shut off the back end of it so she only had access to the kitchen and the living room.
When Juan got home, he could not find Blossom. He looked and looked. He went outside and called. He thought possibly I had accidently let her out when I left and so before he told me that "Blossom was gone" ...he tried to find her. He looked for her for over an hr. Finally...........he found her. She had managed to get through the slats going from the kitchen into our bedroom. And that was not an easy task for her. Muffin fits through them easy but they are designed for her. Juan built the gates. And Muffin goes in and out of the cat's enclosure all the time too. She uses it to poopy in while we are gone when we leave her indoors. And she suns out there as well. The cats are used to her coming and going through their area. She is one of them. She thinks she is a cat.
However........not so with Blossom. Somehow after "squeezing" through the gate slats, she must have struggled and pushed and forced her body through their cat door and somehow got into the cat enclosure. Probably she saw Muffin go through it and she wanted to follow her. It is a not a large door. It is 8" tall and probably 6" wide. It is small. JJ, my big cat barely fits through it. How she managed to get through it is beyond me. It was probably comical. She weighs close to 30 lbs now and is up to my knees in height..... It had to have taken her some time to do it. I bet she got stuck and had no choice but to move forward........
She could not get back in the house. Juan had to go unlock the enclosure and still she would not come to him. He had to go get her out of the corner. I imagine the 'big bad cats' scared her to death during that time she was locked in their room........hahaha
I'm glad she wasn't scratched. But I bet she never does that again. Juan said she was absolutely relieved to be back in the house and the back yard. She said she took a long nap after her ordeal.
I have also begun training her in submissive ways. I am putting her flat on her back and sitting beside her. And she lays there for me. I am going to do this every single day so she will always knows that I can....... She does not struggle. She will simply lay there. Good lesson for her to know.
