The cat on the deck began to roam.  He soon realized he could roam far away from the deck and the essentials would still be there when he returned.His brief excursions away from the deck perhaps were tests for him to try for more.  Each time he went away, the food and water bowls were still there on his return.  Surely, that added confidence to his sense of security.

The cat on the deck learned that his new found security gave him a confidence that allowed for greater boldness.

Lesson #3 from the cat on the deck

Frank White

The cat on the deck had established his kingdom with a throne and a servant girl (a.k.a. Ms. Natalie) to provide fresh food at water on at least a daily basis. He had all he needed.

He had found comfort and he was staying close.  He showed no indication that he planned to move on soon.  It appeared the cat on the deck had become a permanent resident.

After a week or so of hanging close, he began to venture away from his throne.  First, he would wander across the deck to find a spot in the sun.  Or, perhaps it was a perch on the deck rail that provided him a survey of the back yard.
