This conversation took place yesterday at about 7 a.m.
Me: Hi Catch. How may I help you?
Me: No, you can't go outside now.
Me: Allow me to direct your attention to the thermometer on the tree. It's 30 degrees.
Me: I understand, but I'm going to town in five minutes. If I let you out now, you'll be stuck outside for the next 9 hours. No.
Me: Mom is going to be gone too. There will be nobody to let you in until 5. No!
Catch: (Runs to the front door and back to me THREE TIMES). Mee-eee-eee-ow!
Me: You don't NEED to go outside. Look at Oberon; he's perfectly happy to just play with his box. You've gone outside every day this week. Stay in today.
Catch: Meow meow meow meow meow!!!!
Me: At this point I give up and just sneak out.
Now you know.
