Evan the Doorman is a true expert, and so he knows the workings of the door. That's why he knows how important that doorknob is.
He likes to sit and ponder who might turn that doorknob and come inside. When his mommy's not home, he always hopes it will be her on the other side of that door, coming home from work to spend the evening with him.
Sometimes, while Evan waits for his mommy to come home and turn that doorknob, a nap is in order. Honestly, being the Doorman is terribly exhausting.
In between naps, Evan thinks happy thoughts. You know, thoughts about his mommy coming home and walking through that door.
Are there any other door fanatics out there? Evan hopes he's not the only mancat a tad bit infatuated with the wonderful thing that is the front door.
We hope everyone has a wonderful Monday to start off the week!
Our Tip of the Day:
I'm sure many pet parents have had a scary experience or two of a door darting furbaby. It can be a dangerous thing, especially when that front door leads to a street beyond. That's why, for your furbaby's safety, it's crucial that you do your best to train them from loitering near and thereby darting out the door. For your pup, you can teach them to "sit" or "stay" or "wait" when you are coming and going from the house, and you can teach them to do so away from the door, so that they learn to stay clear of it when you come and go. Cats may be able to be trained in a similar manner, so that they learn to stay back from the door when you come and go. Such training may be accomplished by positive reinforcement with treats or toys - when your furbaby is away from the door, and obediently remains that way, give them a delicious or fun reward. Furthermore, as difficult as it may sound, it is a good idea to get in the habit of never giving your pup or kitty attention at the door, so that they learn that the door is not a place to hang around. Instead, you can try setting up a designated area across the room from the door, such as in the form of a pet bed or cat tree, where your furbaby may be trained to wait when you are coming and going from the door. Just as with any training, this can take time and patience, but door safety is very important!
