My 12 year old moggie Cosmo is used to going outside when I'm at home in the morning before work and the evening after.
He's a real scaredy cat, and very stuck in his ways, anything out of his routine upsets him.
My nextdoor neighbour just moved out after 40 years, leaving a very overgrown garden - it was a cat paradise! Her landlord has hired people to clear the garden including removing an old greenhouse by smashing it.
I don't feel it's right to let Cosmo out, he's bound to investigate the changes and would likely be injured. But he's being a real pain wanting to go out, as per his usual routine.
Any ideas to save my sanity - other than not going home until after "coming in time" around 8:30?
