I think I've mentioned previously that Bodie-cat can reach the handle of the downstairs screen door, so when he's downstairs I have to chock the door from the outside, or keep the solid door closed.

In a flash Bodie had the screen door open and stepped outside - to be greeted by two raucous magpies loudly demanding their morning treat of leftover cat food. Did he bolt! Tail between his legs and eyes wide as saucers he skedaddled straight back into the house, while I laughed myself silly.
