Posted on Sunday, June 2nd

The Outdoors Await!  How to Harness Train Your Cat By Laura Moss, Adventure Cats My cats, Fiver and Sirius, have always been captivated by the world outside the window. They spend hours lounging in sun puddles, watching birds and squirrels, and delighting in outdoor scents whenever I crack a window.
