Ginger lets himself out

Sherlock was only 2 weeks old when he came to live with us and little did we know that this big, beautiful Ginger cat was a very special boy. He grew up with the dog and because of this, he does not know how to jump a fence and loves to go for his daily walk down the street on a lead, with the dog beside him.

A couple of nights ago, I was woken up by the sound of the garage door opening. Thinking it was a burglar, I crept downstairs with a broomstick in hand.

There was no burglar in sight, but Sherlock who jumped out of the car window and headed for freedom out into the street. I worked out that he must have accidently pressed the button on the garage door opener which was in the car.

However, he did it again the next night and has now learnt to press the button on the garage door opener which is located in the consule of the car, to let himself out!! I just hope he doesn't teach himself how to drive!
