Formerly Feral Friday - Being On The Right Side Of The Door

This is one of my mommy's favorite photos of me ever.
You see kitties, I do this a lot when the door is open. I get up on my back toes and I look out. But I never cry to be let out and I never try to run out of an open door. Mommy says that's because I know it's much better to always be on this side of the door.
(And you know what kitties? She's right!)
Smooches to you and have a wonderful Friday!

Oh Parker...please promise you will always stay on the right side of the door and never try to git out. We love you, Parker!

Very truly yours,
The Whiskers and Purrs Gang

You look so cute. It is fun to look out though, isn't it? :)

Forever Foster said...

Mom muses about this issue every day, Parker. You see, for the first 2 years Gandalf and I had always been indoor cats and were always trying to sneak out when we lived in Florida, scaring Mom half to death! Now we can go out every day because we live out in the county in a very quiet neighborhood. We are a little bit scairty and we never leave the yard, we are always within a sprints distance to the cat flap!

On the other hand, Mom's office kitty Feather is an outdoor kitty. Feather waits for Mom to arrive at work every morning and runs to the door and spends all day inside with Mom. Feather hates to go outside, even when Mom is leaving.

It's a conundrum! -Grayson

Parker, you look so sweet peering out the door. I am glad you know what side of the door is safest!

Parker, you clearly know when you are well off and I'm sure you would never make a dash for the big outdoors!

That's a very cute photograph.

goldenshade said...

That is a great photo, Parker!! No wonder your mom loves it!!!

Enjoy your view but stay where you are safe!!

Angus Mhor said...

Yep, the best side of the door is the one with the Kitty Treats. Outside is nice for sniffs and adventures, but there's no place like home!

Mickey said...

Mom & I think that is a cute picture too!!!! I am very curious about outdoors,but I know it is safe and cozy indoors :)
I am so happy you have a great home too :)

Aww Parker. That photo makes Mama all leaky-eyed. We're so glad you have such a great home. Happy Weekend to our friends in O Hi O.

Love,
Tazo

PS - Mama thinks that someone (we have no idea who-hee hee) knocked the bar of soap off the counter and Titus just chomped it up. So please tell DD that he didn't woof any bad words or anything.

The Meezers said...

your mommy is right. I stand like that in the door too - unitl I see someone walking in the street outside then I run and hide. - Sammy

Vincent and Mike said...

You're such a sweet kitty, Parker. You know what a good home you have. You are a lucky kitty.

-d ma said...

that is a great photo. i sometimes wish i could stay on the inside side of the door.

Evie/VampyVictor said...

I can see why it is your Mommas favorite Parker.
I iz glad you explained it though coz you look like "sad kitty" watching someone leave like from a movie.
You are a very smart girl, inside is always best :)

Parker

You are right inside is better than outside. Ping is the only one of us that longs to go out. Most of the time he just wants to go out into the garage and he then he zooms back inside. The only time I am remotely interested in outside is when Mom is out there and then I don't think I would like it much. It is better to be safe and sound inside just like we are.

The Island Cats said...

Yep, Parker, I agree...it's better to be on the inside than the outside!

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

I always want to be out there but then when I go I get rather displeased. Inside is much better.

Tybalt said...

Parker, you are always such a cutie.

Maybe you should have a talk with Ivy and let her know that it really is MUCH better inside.

Anita said...

We control better the world inside house!!! Muahahahahahaha!!!

You are one smart kitty Parker. That side of the door is waaay better.

We can see why that is one of your mommy's favorites, it is so cute!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

You are very tall and balanced.

Sultanfus and Guy said...

Very cool picture. Something good must have been out there!

Team Tabby said...

We agree, Parker, it is better to be inside looking out.

Mindy, Moe, Bono

Ana said...

Oh ya, she so right. Inside it's much safer! Chica also likes to stand like that in doors - to open them. But well, the entrance/exit door is unreachable

Woo would think I would know THAT but I'm a Siberian -

An open door means get the khytty!

Good thing Mom doesn't let me!

That is a great picture of you looking outside, Parker. You are a smart kitty to know that you are on the right side of the door.

Poppy Q said...

It is a sooper sweet photo of you my friend.

I am glad I am an inside/outside cat with my own door.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

You have that right! I used to live outside. I moved myself in here 4 years ago and I have never wanted to go outside again!

GRRRETA said...

That is such a sweet picture of you. You are smart to want to stay inside where it is safe.

Pia K said...

That's one adorable pic:) And of course your mummy is right, it can be a scary, dangerous world out there unless there's a fenced in garden available of course.

Cat with a garden said...

Hi Parker!
I'm really glad, that you came by to say hello. I was so impressed about this post because I ALWAYS try to escape to the outdoors when I get the slightest chance. Guess it's in my genes...
Purrs, Siena

Kelly Cat said...

It's good to be curious about what's outside, but it's better to be safe. As a formerly homeless cat, I can tell you it's much better being inside!

ML said...

Parker, that is an adorable photo of you. Too cute.
