Sometimes, if you put your mind to it, you can accomplish things that people might think would be impossible.  Snickers is that kind of cat.  After all, he’s survived with cancer for almost six years.  He has now totally taken this determination to a new level.


You see, he hates cat litter.  Bob too.  They both prefer to go to the door like a dog, do their business, and come back in.  Really.  They will both use the litter box if there’s no other option, but Snickers will do whatever he can to go outside.

He can open my front door if it isn’t locked, so I’m sure to keep it locked because I don’t like when he lets himself out and then climbs on the roof to be let in the upstairs window, and I don’t want another broken paw from him jumping down.

I came home from work earlier this week to find him sitting up there.  I know I locked the door!  I ran upstairs and he was quite happy to see me.

Then I tried to figure out how he got out.  It’s not like there are a lot of options for exiting the house.  Finally, I found it!

He pulled out the styrofoam that was in the window for insulation.  That small hole on the bottom right is much bigger just a day after I took the picture.

Then he managed to open the hook and push his way out the window.

Smarty pants.  I cannot even count the number of times I have closed and hooked the window since he figured this out.  (Not  to mention getting out of bed a couple of times in the night to let him back in the window.)  He keeps shredding more and more of the styrofoam.

Trying to find a way to fix this might be my weekend project.
