A few months ago my two cats got out while I was at work and when I came home I found them both basking peacefully in the sun on the patio. I thought "great! They can go outside but they actually don't wander off anywhere!" Of course it only was a matter of time before their curious little minds began to wander. After recieving a call from one of my neighbors (a friendly one who likes cats thank goodness)letting me know my little grey one, Armani, was sleeping on her new satin sheets in her bed. (with a name like that does he deserve anything less?) I figure letting them wander was a mistake. Now Armani constantly yowles and paws at all the windows and doors trying to get out of the house. Also, despite the fact that it was 102 degrees the other day, I'm unable to open the windows because he learned how to pop the screens out and if I leave the window slightly ajar he figured out how to slide them open (along with the sliding door to the patio) he also managed to rip out a 6 inch diameter hole in the screen door. I've tried the spray bottle method and that doesn't seem to work either. Does anyone have any advice on how to turn him back into an indoor cat once he's had a taste of the outdoors?
