loyal readers only loyal reader, an explanation may be in order to why we don't just lock the meowers in the kitchen. There are actually several reasons:
- The kitchen does not have a radiator, instead relying on other rooms, appliance heat, and people being dressed when in it.
- The kitchen doesn't have door latch, or for that matter, a door. In fact, while the farm doesn't have an open floor plan, there are no interior doors in any doorway on our first floor. We just have exterior doors and the basement door.
- The general heat flow of the house doesn't encourage putting doors in, as then first floor heat would not rise in the winter.
- The boys (along with our departed Emily) were implicitly taught to sleep with us, in particular to snuggle Katherine.
So we need more subtle methods, like remote control depth charges.
