The Future Rodent Hunters of the Homestead have gotten their first taste of the big outdoors. Both are cautious, which is a relief, and stick close to the house and the kitty door. Katy even knows how to ring the kitty door bell to be let into the kitchen if the door is closed! Smart kitty.

I think Sammy will be like Riley, mostly an outdoor/barn cat. Riley rarely comes inside, especially during summer when there is a lot of rodent activity outside. Katy likes to go out, but likes to spend more time in the house. That's okay, because we can use a housecat. When we bought the place, there were long vacant mouse nests in the pantry, and there continues to be mouse activity in the attic. There are rodents enough to go around.
Neither one is allowed out much yet. Just short, mostly supervised outings during the day. They're both cautious, which I'm glad for. Riley has made it very clear he doesn't want them following him. Just as well, I suppose.
