Dax ventures out into the great unknown.


After being cooped up for the past eight months Dax ventured out into the great outdoors. I left the back door open one afternoon to see what would happen. It was a beautiful sunny summer-like day and I decided to enjoy our great weather while having some lunch.

It didn’t take long. A few minutes later, Dax was at the back door. He seemed to be amazed at how much more space there is outdoors. He cautiously stepped out onto the back deck taking it a few inches at a time. He eventually made it al the way to the edge of the deck. I think he’s an outdoor-cat-wanna-be.

We’ll have to leave the back door open more often this season and see how accustomed the cats get to being outside. I’m sure they’ll love it.

Each cat comes out at their own pace until they feel safe outside of their protective home. Jasmine, needless to say, wastes no time and is out and down the deck steps rolling around on the patio and sniffing around trying to find a way out of the yard. Another wanna-be to say the least. She’s been out a few times already. She has no fear when it comes to being outside.

Dax will have to take some lessons from Jasmine on getting out more this year. Here’s Dax’s little adventure on the back deck.
