A CAT has rejected the chance to go outside, despite having seemed incredibly keen to do so.
Cat Roy Hobbs had spent 12 minutes meowing at the back door in what appeared to be a clear and unequivocal request to be let out.
However when owner Mary Fisher responded by opening the door, Hobbs immediately freaked out and ran under the table.
Fisher said: “It seemed like at that precise moment he wanted nothing more in the world than to go outside.
“But when I opened the door he looked at me as if I was pulling some sort of devious trick. He immediately backed away and I tried to sort of scoop him outside with my foot but he wasn’t having that.
“I went back into the other room to resume watching telly. That’s when he started meowing at the fucking door again.”
Roy Hobbs said: “I don’t know what I want. It’s complicated.”
