These attempts at escape are a problem in the morning, because I carry a lot of crap out to the car to go to work and it's hard to open and shut it quickly.
He's escaped a couple times, and I have to catch him. Now, before when he came outside, he was relatively easy to catch. Now he realizes that if he's a good cat, I'll throw him back in, so he runs like hell, thus forcing me to chase him, dressed for work, in usually dew-laden grass.
I understand he likes outside, but for fuck's sake, I don't have TIME to chase the goddamn cat down in the morning! This morning he escaped and lay down, so I dropped stuff off and came back, and he BOLTED. I ran after him for quite a while, then dragged him back, THEN had to change shirts because the fucker got dirt all over my white work shirt because his little paws were so wet and dirty. >_<
I'm locking him in the basement before I leave from now on.
