Toby bringing his toys to share with outside cats?

Toby's inside only. We have a couple cats that like to roam the neighborhood and I'm sure Toby has seen them through the back door or smelled them in the back yard.

Every day I leave a couple of his stuffed toys on my bed when I leave for work, when i get home I find them by the back door where he peers out.

I know that toys are prey for cats, but is he bringing them or trying to share them with the outside cats? The outside cats don't really come up to the door much anymore since I have put down a deterrent by my back porch (not really the subject of this post). I first thought that it was a gathering thing since the back door is in the kitchen where his food is, but I'm convinced that's not it since they're always right by,or even against the back door.

We'll never know for sure! To me it would sound more like he's keeping his favourite toys close, bringing them so he can give the occasional bat while he looks out the door.

Jasper's favourite mouse never fails to be by the door, and often several other things... but this is where he waits for us, I guess. Do you come in that door often?

No, it goes out to my patio, so I use it but not as an entry or exit. If I leave my front door or back door open he'll sit and cry a bit but I don't think it's to go out (though he does enjoy that on a leash) I thinks it's calling out. When we do go out back he is definitely sniffing around the other cats' scents.

I think you have a good point that that is just where he hangs out and brings his toys around.

Hmm. That would be a good guess - and a very cute thought!!!
