Cat update for week ending January 4

Some more feeder back door tweaks this week, among other things.

The cats seem to be accepting Paladout; he has been hanging around pretty much every day, and they’ve walked by without seeming concerned by him:

Me refilling the feeder; you can see the feeder drawer out, and I’m dumping excess food into plastic bins that get stored on the top shelf:

Puzzle time; there are four cats here; can you see all of them?

A cat peeking out from under the house, while another cat scratched the tree:

The cat under the house reached out and tagged the tail of the other one:

The latter then jumped a bit:

Paladout eating in the feeder, and is blocked from leaving by another cat. He considered using the new back door, but wasn’t sure about it (which is strange, since he’s clearly a pet cat, since he has a collar; perhaps his humans let him out instead of having a cat door?):

He tried to get past, but couldn’t:

Paladout peeking from behind one of the twins, who was ignoring him; the twin eventually wandered off, so Paladout could leave:

So based on that, I decided to help them further, and attached a bungee to hold the feeder door open:

Didn’t take them long to investicat the opened door:

They seem to like it open; they can now freely exit and enter through the door:

The original reason for installing the door: escaping Pumpkin:

It was still a big step, a bit awkward, so I then added a cinderblock to make it more comfortable to use:

Finally, a harder puzzle; again there are four cats; can you see all of them?
