The Cats believe that everything we do is for them, so when the chickens went into the Coop for the first time it was natural for the Cats to think it was a pressie for them.
Firstly Isabelle tried to explore everywhere, and she was soon joined by Wash. He explored every nook and cranny trying to find a way in. He also climbed all over the run wire, and at one point climbed up the sides of the walk in Run and laid on the roof!
I couldn't make up my mind whether it was funny or worrying. It was certainly interesting, and helped us see how a fox might behave.
When the chooks finally came out, the Cats laid down around the sides of the run to watch. They've also been watching from the kitchen and the fruit bed, and the upstairs window.
