Hey!  It’s me…Wally!
Y’know…I’m not the only one around here trying to get outside.

 Watch this…

I tried to tell Ernie that if climbing the screen didn’t get us outside,
scratching at the door wasn’t gonna work either.

 He wouldn’t listen…

  1. Perry does that ALOT. It doesn’t work for him either. 🙁 I just jump in a window. Try to have a good ManCat Monday anyway!


  2. We want OWT, too! Mom has not let us Outside in a very long time. So far, nothing has worked for us, either. ::sigh::

  3. We haven’t been able to find a way to get our grounding lifted, either. *sigh*

  4. Awwww! Ernie reminds us so much of Cal! He used to do the same thing.

  5. Wow, Ernie is really digging at the door! Deli does that on a closed window…like that’s gonna do anything!

  6. I scratch at the door too…and meow. Loudly. In the middle of the night. Nothing ever works…

  7. So sad, Ernie — despite all your best efforts, that door wouldn’t open! If it’s locked, you’re just out of luck.

    My kitties like to scratch at the weatherstripping around our door to try to open it — boy does it ever get shredded. Dylan has even been successful at opening the closed front door (as long as the lock isn’t in position). I don’t know how he does it. But, you might want to get some tips from him.

  8. Awww, poor Ernie! You tried really hard and long to get them to let you out. Mean ol’ humans. They should let you out and snoopervise you to make sure you don’t get in trouble. You wouldn’t get in trouble, would you? 😉

    Purrs and hugs,
    The Kitty Krew

  9. So Wally, are you letting Ernie do all the work today? Maybe try and do a jump and whap at the door latch?

  10. Ernie! keep scratching! you never know, it *might* work???

  11. Be careful, Ernie! Those nails sound like they may need to be clipped.

  12. Wally, We can see that you are trying to tell Ernie that scratching is not going to work. That look you gave him said it all.

  13. Oh dears our mum no likes the scratchings either

  14. I would be in a lot of trouble if I did that…

  15. Good try, Ernie! We think it’s a better idea than tearing up the screen 🙂

  16. You have got to train your human better. Ours always come running when we want in or out. Or in or out. In or out. In or out.

    Or in and out

  17. Andy says: Sam does that a lot too….but I remember how traumatic my life was out there in that scary world, so I have no desire to go out.

    love and purrs from us

  18. Oh, Ernie! Ask your mom to open the door, is simple =)

  19. But inside is where the tunafish and cuddle-love is!!

  20. Oh Ernie, it´s the same around the world. Luna always try to come out like you too. But she tell it very loud. You must call loud, that works here.

  21. Oh, boy, what an effort! Did your beans let you out then, under supervision at least?
    Purrs and love

  22. No, scratching won’t work any more than climbing. What you need to do is figure out how to work the doorknob – then you woudl be all set! If your mom wants you inside there has to be a reason for it – I am sure she isnt’ doing it just to be mean.

  23. Awwww Ernie you did great trying to open that door.


  24. Oh Ernie, you need to get yourself an automatic door opener, ask around, they really do make them.

  25. I fully understand, Ernie. Sometimes you have to use a little drama to get the humans’ attention. But here’s a hint: when scratching doesn’t work, I resort to flopping on the floor in front of the door and I WILL NOT MOVE so no one can get in or out until they let ME out!


  26. Maybe you could invite the birds in since you can’t get out.

  27. Nothing is working at present for me too. Especially when SS is not home. And Spring is almost here – birdies, butterflies….. :sigh:

  28. You’re sure working hard!

  29. We fink yoo tried to get out in a good way, dem beans sumtimes just dun get what we want to do.

  30. Ernie, you were sure working hard at scratching that door open! It’s not fair for the beans to stand outside and leave you inside watching you trying to get outside!

  31. All that scratching looks like hard work. Make your beans take you for a walk!

  32. Sandusky does that sometimes if he gets shut out of a room that he wants in! He will scratch and scratch till he gets in!

  33. You should probably just take a nap instead.

  34. Would yoo consider a leash? Mom allows Alfs on a leash and I get to go snoopervised. It’s not the same but it’s better than nuffin.

  35. That doesn’t get us very far either!
