Comfort on the Couch

eggs and stuff 039

This is TommyCat resting on the couch in the living room.  TommyCat isn’t a feral cat but he prefers to live outdoors. I got him into the house during the time the snow was deep and the temperature was below freezing.

But when the weather was milder, he begged to go outside again, so, I gave him his freedom.  Then it got colder again, with more deep snow, and I thought he would want warmth and the comfort of the couch again, but he did not want to come indoors.

It’s hard for me to understand why he would prefer the cold and snow to the warmth and comfort of the couch, which he enjoyed when he was indoors.  I don’t understand, except that I do know the strong pull that freedom has over many of us.

TommyCat loves his freedom, but comes back to the porch, to the food bowl, a couple of times a day.

More power to you, TommyCat.  Just stay safe!

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.

    I think all animals like to be outdoors. That’s why they have nice furry coats to keep them warm. Both of my cats are house cats and even if I left the door open, they wouldn’t go outside.

    I like that idea, Judy Miller, that the cats have nice furry coats to keep them warm.
