Only Jeff can turn a leisurely afternoon outdoors into a bloodbath.
Staff arrived home on Friday afternoon and let the dog out as usual. Decidedly not as usual was finding Jeff waiting to come in at the back door.
After inspecting Jeff (fine, though dirty), Staff inspected the house and found the screen in the bathroom window had been popped out.
The other cats were present and accounted for, apparently lacking the courage to follow El Jefe out the window.
Jeff supervised as Staff applied a high-tech fix to prevent future breakouts.
Naturally this will only be effective until Jeff evolves opposable thumbs and/or a prehensile tail.
A significant time of year is upon us. Southern California finally grew tired of record heat, and now the mornings and evenings are chilly. This is a negative for the cats because Staff must sometimes close their beloved windows; this is a positive for the cats because Staff can now open the blast shields.
The curtains must stay permanently closed all summer to keep the brutal sun from incinerating the living room. Now the sun is friendly and happy, and Jeff claims the couch spot each morning to bask.
El Jefe is most pleased. And warm.
