This is Weston’s cat, Killer, aka the dashboard cat. This is his favorite spot, on the bannister at the top of the stairs.
Weston’s cat is a big responsibility because he’s Weston’s cat. Weston is very attached to his cat, and his cat is very attached to him. Previously, Killer spent most of his time outside unless Weston was home. When we first moved here, Weston was here and he kept Killer in the studio with a litter box, along with the other cats, for their “indoctrination period” to the new farm. Cats can be hard to move, and I like to keep them indoors at first before introducing them to their new outdoor space. My cats are indoor-outdoor cats for the most part, with a few that are strictly outdoor cats (and the strictly outdoor cats have now taken up living quarters in the hayloft). My indoor-outdoor cats are doing fine in the house and out of the house….
….except for Killer.
Killer has decided that he is an indoor cat. I’ve tried putting him out the door–and he stays at the door, with his furry face smashed against the glass, crying, for hours, until I let him back in. He will not step an inch away from the door. The other cats make fun of him and he doesn’t care.
I broke down and put a litter box in the house.
Killer lives here now.
