My staff did, and it mostly paid off. You see, they have noticed that it is pretty useless to put me on a leash at the lake, since I WILL get myself free of them. So this time when I was meowing in the cottage that I wan't out, my mom opened the door, let me out and said to me to be a good kitty and come home soon. I was pretty surprised, I didn't have to run and escape, I could just walk around calmly. It turned out that I stayed quite close to them anyway, and for the night they took me inside the cottage, which meant quality laptime with my mom so I wasn't complaining.
All was good and well, until today when we were leaving home. I was inside the cottage just to make sure I wasn't too far away when they would start the car. Well, I was able to open the door and escape... They noticed me going and tried to run after me. Obviously I ran then too. For a while I was nowhere to be found, but luckily I did return in time. I guess my staff would have been too angry with me if I wouldn't have done that...
Now we're back at home, and it's time for some serious recovery naps!
