We awoke to a rather sunny and inviting looking garden this morning and decided that we would trial letting the kitties outside for the first time.
Bella and Esme are three years old now and have never really been outside. In The Hague we lived on a busy junction so it was never possible for them to go out, well, unless you count our metre square balcony which they sometimes sat on.
We opened our patio doors this morning and watched them enjoy!
At first hesitant and then very silly and excited – they clearly loved being in their new garden!
This first trip outside was about 5 minutes (mainly because I’m scared of them running across the road and getting lost!). We plan to take them outside regularly until they are used to it – and used to coming back home!
I was really nervous about putting the cats through the stress of importation but am so glad I did. They are loving their new big house and will definitely love the great outdoors too.
