For anyone who knows my cats on here, of course it's Jade that I'm talking about She is slipping by me outside multiple times a day and it's really stressing me out. I feel like she's bored, i'm not home a lot right now and when I am, i'm preoccupied with school, etc. She is fixed and microchipped, and I guess I'm going to get her a collar with a tag. I got a harness and leash for her yesterday, thinking she might like to walk outside, but she was so freaked out and then managed to slip out of the harness and that was the end of that. To be fair, I know that may take some time and acclimation. She really freaked me out this morning, she slipped out at 430am and wouldn't come back to me, I finally got her to after about 5 minutes. She is acting possessed, she runs around outside meowing and meowing, she is not trying to hide that she wants out and is meowing at the door acting all antsy. She's so little and fast (and black, so hard to see in the dark), it's not like I don't know she's going to try and run out but she can get past me when even i'm on guard. I live in an apartment complex, so it's parking lot and road right there, and i'm afraid she is going to get hurt or killed running around like a maniac. In addition, I feel like a bad cat mom, like I am failing her. Does she not want to be here anymore? What if she runs out one day and I can't get her back? I love her so much. Additionally, the apartment above me is being renovated so there has been a lot of noise lately, and they have parked a trailer right in front of the cats' favorite window, so now their view to the parking lot by the dumpster is totally blocked. Which I know sounds weird, but the dumpster equals animals and interesting people walking by way more than any other vantage point. Jade is also my resident bully, so I am just second guessing everything. Is she not happy living here? Idk i'm scared and frustrated with her in equal measure. I don't want to lose her and i'm scared it's just a matter of time, she's getting bolder and bolder. Does anyone else have this problem? Help!!
