    After sharing my home with beloved cats for most of my life,
    i can say with certainty that cats wait to discern what’s in it for them to move!

    Little kitties (or “cats”) have throughout history been looked up to for their wisdom. When cats are still, whether they are gazing out a window, watching another animal, or seemingly doing nothing, they are contemplating and working on solving life’s greatest mysteries! Cats have been tasked with much greater things than just sitting in a doorway deciding whether to go in or out!

    This sounds like an interesting book. I love when books have pets that help their humans in some way throughout them. Whether it be helping solve mysteries, offer them comfort at the beginning and end of their workdays, or if they’re the Mascot at their human’s workplace and get to go to work with them every day…it’s always comforting. To answer your question: I think cats are weighing the pros and cons of both sides of the door while they’re standing there.

    I would be willing to give it a listen. Do I need a special reader ?

    Oh, I think they definitely are thinking about other things. My cat is 23 years old and we rescued her, her brother and mother. Her mom, Sabrina, died 2 1/2 years ago at age 20, her brother passed last year at 21. Teddi is still going strong, and I KNOW she is thinking about something good when she’s standing in our doorway. Even tho she is an indoor cat, she comes to the door when I go out and she will sit there, even tho I am inviting her to come out with me, and I know she is thinking about it.
