Katie knows when we leave a gate or door open downstairs. She used to bolt out the second we left one accidentally unattended, but now? She stands there and just makes noise. Sometimes she points. Sometimes she actually walks over closer to whatever gate is open and babbles at you like HELLO?! THIS SHOULD BE CLOSED! So we close it and she stops babbling and goes about her business.
Tonight she started squawking and was standing at the gate, pointing. I wasn’t sure what she wanted so opened the gate—curious as to what she was going to do. She went right to the fridge and tried to open it. So she stood there (mostly) patiently while I poured her some milk—and when I handed it to her, she went right back through the gate to the living room.
