We spent yesterday setting up for our permanent winter stay in Patagonia-Sonoita Creek Preserve. I had quite a few items to clean since they haven't been out since last winter. With all our traveling during the summer, it was too much trouble to setup and breakdown. Eh, call me lazy...
|Bird feeders and Hummingbird feeders....check!|
As soon as the motorhome stopped, we swear the cats knew our new location. They tend to beg to go outside as soon as we stop, but this time it was different. They were constantly in the stairwell trying to run out the door.
|Lots of area to explore|
All four kept saying: "We know this spot! Freedom! No loud trucks, no people, and no leashes!" But, we only let them out when we can supervise them and Hitch still needs to be on a leash.

So, they had to wait while we setup our site and spent some time with the preserve's manager to reacquaint ourselves with the office procedures.
Finally! We opened the door and all four cats were out the door. We did not have to ask them twice if they wanted to come outside. Even Max immediately left the safety of the door to go explore. All summer, it took a lot of coaxing to get him to take a step outside.

Squirrel spent the most time exploring. We had to keep herding him back. At least, he did not hiss at us for making him stay near the rig. He was probably happy to be outside without the leash. Yep, enjoy it while you can, because this will only last for 4 months.
Home is Where You Park It! Happy Trails!
