I'm trying to discourage Houdini to stop climbing on the screens but I think he is having too much fun. I am trying not to smile as you would when you sometimes see a comical and mischievous child, because I am secretly enjoying the show and yet don't want him to know that. However, this is a relatively new patio door and the new screen came with it. We lived without a screen for a long time and we love having the door open so that we can feel a nice cool breeze - when there is one - and listen to the birds while not having to deal with unwanted pesky flies, mosquitoes and who knows, an unwanted squirrel pulling up a chair and sitting at the kitchen table demanding his supper, because I'm thinking that may be his next move. He doesn't seem to have done any damage yet but Houdini needs to learn that manners and good behavior go a long way, and he needs to stay awft the flipping screen door.
What can I say? I just love my little mischievous 'child' out there!
