Oh, now THAT is funny!! Jack will do that, cry at the screened in porch door when he has a dedicated cat door less than 8 feet away. I think he thinks it's just more fun to watch us get up and open the door.
Oh man, no kidding!! I had TWO 'presents' brought in yesterday morning from kitties that moan because a door as closed too far (not latched but can't get their head thru to get out, so cry helplessly instead of using the paw to pull it open. No issues with that yesterday at all!
