Epic Fail: Grey Cat

Grey Cat, who thinks he is people, made a break for freedom this morning. The hydraulic spring on the screen/storm door wasn't working, because it was just too cold -- 6*F at noon.

So when Mr. McGee took the trash out at noon, Grey Cat thought he'd take his chance to escape. Grey Cat thinks he wants to be an outdoor cat because he's not aware of the actual outdoors. (Recall that he tried his hardest to fall out a second-floor window.) The actual outdoors offend him.

Anyway, Grey Cat goes dashing out the mostly-but-not-entirely closed back door. His paws his the frozen concrete, and he COMPETELEY PANICS. Because it is FRIGGIN' COLD outside, and his little bare paws are not really ready for 6*F concrete. He's all, "WHY GOD WHY??!?!?!?!?!?" about it. He frantically tries to get inside, but coming out (pushing the door) is much easier than going IN (pulling the door open), and Mr. McGee has to come rescue him.

Not that this, you will note, prevents him from attempting to escape a second time when I go out to the grocery store. Because maybe God is merciful and has warmed the concrete up to 65*F. It could happen!
