Welcome! Pixie sounds so darn lovable!
Got some pictures? I've only been around the boards a short time myself but we seem to all love pictures around here.
I now have a cream persian named Peaches that I rescued from the humane society. But before Peaches, I had (actually it was daughter, Rachels cat) a long haired, orange striped cat named "Kitty" and he opened doors too! Kitty was very noisy. He meowed very VERY loud
But we also loved him anyway.
My daughter kept putting off getting Kitty neutered and when he reached adulthood he would meow especially loud to get outside and cat around. He drove us SO crazy we started letting him out. And sometimes he would sneak out. Anyway, to make a long story kind of short, we had some neighbors that didn't like us (My husband is American/Iraqi/Arab)and it was just after 9/11/2001. One day kitty snuck out and came back all covered in some pesticide or liquid fertilizer someone had sprayed him with. He was making this terrible sound like he was in big trouble. Right away I put him in the bathtub and rinsed him off as best I could & bathed him. I even took the removable shower head down and sprayed him all over. Including his face (after I wiped it as best I could). I had no choice.... I had to get that chemical off as soon as I could. Kitty was vomitting and making that terrible noise. Kitty hated baths but this time he didn't put up a fight at all. After the bath I gave him water and called the vet. I didn't have to take him in. The Vet told me I did everything they would do at this point and as long as Kitty wasn't still vomitting and was alert he'd be fine. And he was!
But some time later (maybe 8 months) Kitty snuck out again and this time he never came home.
We tried to find Kitty but he just seemed to vanish in thin air.
Anyway, sorry to get off the track and go on about this story. It probably belongs in another forum but I thought about it when you mentioned Pixie opens doors.
Everyone will be glad to hear that Peaches is STRICTLY an indoor cat. She had already been spayed and declawed <(not my choice) before I rescued her.
