How Cats Manage the Dog Days
Of course there are some who like it hot. In winter, Scruffy sits on a heat vent to warm his bottom. But in summer, Scruffy and Dewey leave the air-conditioned house and head for the warm and cozy garage. Dewey’s spot is under the car or in front of the garage door, while Scruffy lounges on top of the car or in an old lawn chair. In the garage, the boys search for bugs, lizards and mice to play with and eat — and sometimes bring into the house.
So eager is Dewey to get into the garage, he’s learned to open the door himself, and twice set off the alarm. Now the door is blocked so in the morning the cats pace until their person lets them into their garage.
