The Big Thing here: Funny story but no pictures... Ayla went out (as she rarely does) and went straight up the west side fence (as she does WHEN she goes out). I was going in and out, so I generally knew where she was sitting. But then I lost track of her.
Well, the tricorner back yard with the neighbors is kind of wild and she does like to prowl around in there sometimes. She always comes back over the west fence when I call her.
So I called her. Imagine my surprise when I saw her on the east fence! She was up on the top of the fence and COULD have just hopped down and come into the house from there. But NO! Apparently habits matter to her.
She had to hop down outside the yard, run around the front of the house (which she usually HATES), climb UP the west fence side and THEN hop down and run into the house...
I'm still laughing...
Funny Ayla! Old habits die hard...ReplyDelete
It sounds like Ayla is a little OCD...ReplyDelete
Ayla was following her breadcrumbs home!ReplyDelete
Habits are hard to break!!!ReplyDelete
oh my - too cute. :) Mom laughs when we walk in the bedroom, around the bed, over mom and then lay down on the side of the bed closest to the door....ReplyDelete
We cats like to follow our set route. Eric and I would always do a perimeter patrol around our garden several times a day and we wore away the grass where our footprints always went in exactly the same place.ReplyDelete
Did you think you wouldn't get back into the house if you came down on the East side, so you ran to the West side 'cause it's a sure thing?ReplyDelete
Us cats like our routines. :)ReplyDelete
The Human's mom told a story about some relative that didn't want to throw out leftover pancake batter so she cooked a pancake and then didn't want it and threw the pancake away. The Human thinks that story might be apocryphal but she doesn't really know. Anyway, the Ayla story reminded her of that! Humans are silly.ReplyDelete
MOL! That's too funny.ReplyDelete
Ummm, that is funny but if that is her pattern, then she is gonna follow it.ReplyDelete
