Little Tom is, at twelve, the oldest cat we have. He came from my grandmother’s when he was a kitten. He’s an outdoor cat; he doesn’t even like it when we put him inside somewhere during bad weather. But for some reason, he has this habit of occasionally running into the house and just wandering around for a while. Does he come in to warm up? Is he avoiding something outside? Does he just want to know what’s going on inside? I have no idea.
He has gotten to where he does this more frequently. He used to only do it once in a blue moon, but it’s a pretty regular thing now. These days it’s usually about the time when everyone is about to go upstairs to start thinking about going to bed, too. He had almost stopped doing this until recently. Why??
