Mississippi kitties are country cats:
getting trapped inside neighbor’s apartments
getting caught by Animal Control
getting stuck on roofs and in trees… actually, all of that happened only to Cora during her short three years of life.
Tali was safe and sound close to the house at all times.
California kitties are city cats,
finding the sunniest spot in the apartment and lounging for hours,
finding the highest spot in the apartment on top of the fridge,
looking out the window to watch the birds and trees sway,
hunting toys instead of rodents,
sniffing the door but never venturing beyond it.
I worried a lot about transplanting our outdoor county cats to a cramped city apartment, but our California kitties have adjusted beautifully. You might even say, by the look of their bellies, that they are quite content. And safe!
