The Doors, The Doors

My dog Eba is a rescue dog from Texas. She is a little dog, just 11 lbs., and can wiggle herself through the smallest crack and like a mouse, she's always looking for one, so this little girl is also quite an escape artist.

When I first adopted her, I made sure that most of my yard was completely fenced and there were no gaps at the gate to the front yard. The east side yard is not fenced.

In my home there is a lattice door between the living room and hallway to the bedroom and bath that I can lock.

The reason for the lattice door was Felina. She was a tortie cat that I adopted some years ago with the name Phoebe but I liked the name Felina better.

She was sweet and very affectionate at the Humane Society but once I brought her home she was ferociously attacking my other two kitties. For a few days I played musical cats, switching them around from room to room to keep peace in the house.

Then a friend suggested building a lattice door so they could be separated yet see and get used to each other without lots of missing fur nasty scratches and vet visits.

It took 3 weeks but it worked.



So this morning I went to feed the feral kitties on the back porch, that is on the east side of my home. Eba was on the couch in the living room so I closed and locked the lattice door so Eba would not run out, then I could open the back door but in came "Foxy." the only one of the feral cats that comes into and out of my home.

Now I open the lattice door to let him go into the livingroom, closed it again, went back down the hall, opened the back door to feed the cats outside.

What I had not seen was that Eba, faster than a meteor, had slipped past me and was on the bed.

When the door opened she shot off the bed and she was gone, scattering the other cats outside in all directions.

Oh.... E-l-e-a-n-o-r !! (I always call myself Eleanor when I'm mad at me.)

Now I had to get some clothes and shoes on, got the leash, some Pup-Peroni and a very tiny high pitched whistle and headed outside. The last I had seen of Miss Eba she was romping across the street and heading down the hill.

Out I went, blew the tiny whistle and tweeted that thing for about a minute and she finally came running. Gave her a piece of treat, fastened the leash, told her what a good girl she was and put her back in the house while I tried to regain my sanity.

And so my little darling had her adventure due to my mental gap. I was exhausted and am in recovery.

Thank you for sharing your adventure with the fur people in your household.  I too am a pet lover and small dogs are the tricksters that bring adventure.  I think if you go back through some of my blogs you will discover I too have had some fur people events.  I look forward to hearing more about your little zoo.  I really enjoyed this story.

You have brought back some memories of pets we had when our children were growing up. We had gerbils, birds, dogs and cats. When we were on our own again, our son brought us a grey poodle who needed a new home when his owner had to move. Pepper was our delight for 14 years, but have never brought another pet in our home. We have too many coyotes lurking in our area, and I have no desire to meet a veterinarian in an emergency call.

Thanks, for sharing your experiences with your pets.
