The weather is not delightful here in Jerusalem

This time of year is very hard for my cat. She does not understand why she cannot go on the porch if there is rain and I try to explain it to her. I was sleeping and thought I heard thunder and it did rain and when I went out to throw out the garbage it was not raining. I came inside and opened the porch door and saw that it was drizzling and was wet and then it was ok so opened it for my cat to go out. She stares outside and wonders why she cannot go out. It is very hard on her. Want to clear something up here. My cat is not afraid of rain. I just do not want her out in it. I do not want her to get sick.

Would Sophie go out and roam in the rain, if you let her out? It was raining very hard here again tonight. Honey doesn't care much for that, especially when it is a cold rain, as it has been. She also had another fainting episode tonight. :-( This is hard on us both. I took another picture of her tonight, as she laid there about an hour later. She's upstairs in her kennel right now. I need to finish in the kitchen. I hope Sophie can go out to play soon!

@TheSojourner She goes out on the porch and she did go out and one side it was drizzling and the other side was not. She came back in and then it was ok so she went back out. I am so so sorry for the both of you. I can imagine how you both must feel. She went out again on the porch. I hope you and Honey will be ok.

@Hannihar at least she goes out and watches. Thank you. I'm going to be watching her closely today. It's 3:00 a.m., and I haven't slept yet and I'm going to try and get a couple of hours. RGD it's coming over around 10:00 a.m., so I'll be able to get some things done and maybe even get a nap and he can keep an eye on her. If she has any more of these episodes tonight, I'm going to call a veterinarian on Monday and probably make a decision

@rakski I cannot answer for all cats. My cat likes to drink water and likes to be on the porch whether it is raining or not.

@Hannihar drinking water is essential to anyone, human and animals, all living beings for that matter. But cats do not like to take showers and bath

@rakski I would never try to put my Sophie in the shower to clean her off. She cleans herself off. She likes to drink water and do not let her on the porch if raining raining. If drizzling she can go out. I bought a round tub once and filled it with water thinking she would play in it but she did not go in it. Maybe she was afraid to climb in it. I have no idea.

I don't know will or can cats get sick if they get too wet? It's an unknown fact that humans don't get sick when our in wet conditions unless their immune system is already compromised and they already were exposed to a virus.

@ShifaLk She was outside once. I found that the apartment was very quiet one day and went on the porch and she was on the roof of this house that sits in front of our building. She was afraid to get off the roof so I thought she could go to the porch of the apartment below us and I would knock on their door and get her and bring her home. It was not simple. They would not give me her. She was out all day and night and I was angry. I tried to get her off of their porch but she could not come to me. I had to call the police and get her back that way. I think that was very traumatic for her so she does not want to go out at all. One time I think in the beginning she was frightened and got out and went looking for her and found her close to the entrance and down the steps and she was frightened. I brought her home. She likes the hallway and the porch. I prefer the porch for her. Too many do not wear masks here and I do not want her near them.

@ShifaLk Yes, it was very hard for her and I was very angry at them for not giving me her. She did not have water all day because of them. He told me when she was still on the roof that she went on his porch and he did not tell me. I think he is afraid if his wife because she was the one sitting in a toilet with the room half open and half closed telling me I cannot have her. I was so angry. I never liked her at all. Him I did not like after that. I did not want to talk to them after that. Thank you.

Do you close the door on your cat so you can work or would he sleep in the same room? There are times my cat will lay on the couch in here and sleep.
