I Don't Think the Cat Realizes
He runs to that door any time I do get up, thinking I'm going to let him out.
Then, when I happen to be over by the door, and he made it clear that he wants to go out, I open it and he just stares at the open door. I close it and walk away, with a cat still inside the house.
I wonder how long it will take him to realize that meowing doesn't work and that I'm less inclined to open that door if he doesn't go out...
