Shakespeare, what are you having a fit about now?
I’m old enough to go outside and play.
So why doesn’t Mom let me out?
She has been letting you out. We were outside playing last night. Don’t you remember how you went over to the fence to meet Champ?
That was LAST night!!! What about tonight?
Well, I’m not sure why Mom didn’t let us go out and play tonight. I will admit I was kind of upset, too.
It’s not fair! Mom gets to go outside every day but we don’t. When will we be old enough to go outside when we want?
I have a feeling that’s not going to happen. Mom doesn’t want anything bad to happen to us so if she doesn’t have time to check on us, I don’t think we get to go outside.
How about if I keep track of you and you keep track of me? Do you think Mom might let us go out more then?
Ok, I’m going to find just the right time to try to sell her on this great idea! Hey, do you think other fur people have this problem?
I don’t know, why?
Well, maybe some of our readers are fur people and they can let us know if they get to go outside whenever they want to.
So ask them!
What about it? Any of you fur people out there care to give us an answer???

We are Feisty and Shadow and we are feather people (please don’t eat us) and we don’t get to go outside when we want. We also have to stay inside a cage when we go out. We don’t get to fly free when we are outside, like we can inside our house. It is because our people want us to be safe, because we might fly away and not be able to find our way home. It is because they love us very much and don’t want us to be hurt.
Your human loves you so very much. She doesn’t let you go outside by yourself because she wants you to be safe. Be happy that she loves you so much. You are very lucky animals.
Thanks Feisty and Shadow! I guess sometimes we just start thinking about ourselves too much. We know Mom loves us and we also know she will let us outside to play when she knows we will be safe. I guess we just have to throw a temper tantrum now and then. Oh, by the way, we wouldn’t think of eating you ‘cuz Mom gives us really good food and treats. We are fascinated with how you manage to fly, though!
