The Wisp and the Challenge

Wisp is now routinely showing up and asking me for belly rubs and scritches.

She’s also coming much further into the house than she used to, though she doesn’t like it when we close the door on her.The big question is, where do we go from here? Where does she want to go?

If she decides she’d like to move in, at least part of the time, we’d probably accept, but what then? Will she and the dogs get along? How will I handle three pets sitting with/near me all day long and asking for petting? Will we need to convert the French door to a cat door? How will we keep the dogs from using it, because they are not suited to outdoor life.

In the short term, I’m wondering how to handle our petting sessions when it starts to get cold. Most of them take place in the doorway to the deck with Wisp lying down and waiting for belly rubs. A month or so and that’s going to be unpleasant. I may try closing the door and seeing if I can get her used to it.

At least as she survived last winter she should be able to make it through this one even if she stays outdoors.
