In the winter, Lucifer our cat, stays inside the house pretty much all of the time. However at 9:00 at night when I take Kona out for her last walk, Lucifer often comes out too and watches us. After the walk, Kona comes inside, I call Lucifer, then she also comes inside.
The other night things didn’t really work out that way. I walked Kona and we came inside the house, but I didn’t see Lucifer outside so assumed she stayed in the house, like she sometimes does. I locked the door and we went to bed.
The next morning when I was eating my breakfast, I heard a miserable, pleading, “meow” from outside the house. I opened the front door and Lucifer sprinted into the house. It seems as though she ended up spending the night outside. Fortunately, it was not a really cold night, the temperature was just around freezing.
I was sorry for locking her out overnight, and she was too. The photo shows Lucifer up in the bed, happy to be back in the familiar, warm, surroundings.
