It wasn’t planned, but having completed the garden fence / primarily to keep the dogs out / it dawned on me that it could also keep a kitty in.  I have always felt bad about Lilly being an all indoor cat, especially when everyone else goes outside and she sits patiently at the door waiting for people and dogs to return.  She can’t be let outside for several reasons.  Her post-birth illnesses have left her about half blind, and also have her about half the size of the many feral cats that roam the area.  She wouldn’t recognize trouble until it was up on her, and she would be able to defend herself after that.  One nice thing about her being sight impaired is that she doesn’t move very fast.  We don’t think that she likes to run or climb when we take her out to the back garden, because she doesn’t know where she is headed.  We have taken her out a few times and she will walk with us without running off.  The trouble is that she will sometimes keep walking under decks or the green house where we don’t know what may be laying, or how hard of time we would have getting her out.  So, the fence is up and if we are doing some garden work, I think she will be just fine.  She made her maiden journey to the garden this afternoon and enjoyed rolling around in the afternoon sun – much to the dismay of Vegas and Duke.
