It is a lovely day. I have the front and back doors open and most of the windows. This means that the animals are free to wander in and out as they please. John, if you're reading this, don't worry, I'm keeping an eye on Willow, she's laying 5 feet away from me right now and the heat is off. Anyway, this means that the cats have no where to hide if they want to hang around near the house too. Which they do. So the animals are all hanging out together. Mostly. Willow is frustrated though because the cats are letting her get close but not close enough to make her happy. They're not playing with her. They don't recognize her foot stomps as "OMG I WANT TO PLAY WITH YOU! CAN WE PLAY NOW PLEEEEEEEEEASE!" They're reading the foot stomps as, well, they're not sure. They're not running in fear so they know it's not aggressive but they are backing off. They're hissing less too.
