Our cat learned how to open the front door. Did I already mention that? Alex kept telling me I left the door open when I was sure it was closed. I automatically lock it behind me so I knew I couldn't have. But, if she is doing something like unloading the groceriens, it's not always locked. (Disclaimer for burglars: Don't test it. Alex loves guns.) We were cleaning out our shed the other day and I saw Bindi, our Pom, pouncing through the front yard. This was not the first time. I should mention Bindi is only 5 lbs and has legs that will no doubt atrophy one day as she is typically carried alone in the front yard is not normal. I was positive I had shut the door...Mystery.

Later that night I had gotten up to get water or something in the middle of the night...and I heard the front door knob and then the door being moved...I froze, and turned on the lights (and yelled "Alex!...knowing that any minute I would be the one shot as the intruder if she awoke to hear the same thing)

And who was there at the front door? But Dash, with both paws on the knob, pulling it down and then leaning back to try to open the door. But it was locked. As an experiment, I unlocked it and waited. And watched.

Dash reached up with both paws, turned the knob, leaned back, and let himself out as the door opened.

Case closed. But not the door.

He has not yet mastered the art of being considerate enough to close the door behind him, much to the delight of the other pets who wish to go for a stroll.

But at least I no longer have to defend my door closing abilities.
