My cat has figured how to get OUT of a catflap set to IN only.
She is supposed to be confined to indoors at the moment because she has an open wound. We are having the bathroom rennovated, and the plumber/tiler/etc means that the door is open a lot. So rather than seal off her catflap, I set it to in only, so that if she went out when the workmen had the door open, she could get back in once it was closed.
Only she's worked out how to pull the flap towards her and get out.
Which would be less amusing and astonishing if she weren't usually such a stupid creature
Mine made a heroic leap (over 5 feet over 2 storeys of sheer drop) to escape from the kitchen window, giving my friend who was looking after her a near heart attack when she couldn't find the silly creature anywhere in the house but knew she hadn't opened any doors. (We didn't think she would jump to get out, which was silly of *us* in retrospect). Spent 24 hours outdoors, ate something nasty, with predictable results.
Stupid cat. (Mine that is, not yours).
