Skylar moved out

to the porch.

She loves it out there and spends all of her time screaming and crying at the back door until she can go out... and never wants back in! She's got quite the kitty tv nature show out there too - squirrels don't seem to catch her attention nearly as much as her doggy sister Brody, but she loves watching the birds in the yard and trees, humming birds at the feeders and catching flies. Its an olypic sport to her! The other night (her rare moments inside) she spent a good 30 minutes straight chasing a fly or two around the house.

I still don't quite trust that she'll never jump down... but so far she doesn't show too much interest.

Can you get some mesh fencing and wire ties up so that she can't get through the slats on the porch? It shouldn't effect her view.

Another member (I forget who ) used nylon deer-mesh fencing on their balcony. It's strong, lightweight, and doesn't obstruct the view. Perhaps you can do the same on your porch.

I'm really not that worried about her jumping. My big fear is actually that she'll learn she can jump on the railing and from there realize she can get to the stairs. The stairs are blocked off with a baby gate and although she knows she can jump it... there appears to be nothing on the other side because its at the top of the stairs so she doesn't have a sure landing.

Plus, she's spent a ton of time in and around the yard on her harness so I think if she happened to jump she'd spend more time sniffing around her usual area rather than immediately dashing off.

She really seems quite content out there

Aww, so cute that she's that happy.
