Krishna is a happier cat when allowed his own outdoor life. He got out through the open backdoor when Belle handed me a dandelion. I left him alone for several hours until I heard him coughing under a window. Of course he ran from me when I approached him and stayed gone a couple more hours. Krishna asked to be let in with a strong meow at nightfall. Polly appeared to greet or scold him and Belle screamed and chased him. I doused him with an herbal flea powder and let him be.
