Think they are anxious for me to insert the pet door?
Feel free to add any of your own observations for any animals (non human, they can get nasty). I know a FEW of you might have dogs, we have one ourselves so we don't want to leave them out.
The idea came from watching three cats trying to get in/out the pet door we have inserted in our sliding door. Little B insists on pawing the door until it finally opens on the bottom. (he paws from the top) I shouted for him to push on the bottom and darn it he didn't. Just chance I believe but then again, I know they listen since I just yelled at two fighting in the house and the ones outside panicked and came back in. I guess they are not taking any chances on why the alarm was raised.
Another observation is how two can sit on opposite sides of the cat door and neither will try to come in/out until the other leaves. Even our dog does it. She often goes out the door but will not come in, preferring us to open the whole door. I guess no one wants to poke their nose in when they know someone might pop them on the other side.
By the way, if you want to share a picture of your cat/dog/s or other, send them to me and I will fit them into one of these posts. Some of you might even be sharing cats you have adopted from us! I do have the ones you already sent years ago, but digging them out might be more of a challenge than I am up to. Besides, I am sure that they have changed. LOL
