importance of a double door entry"
We got our outdoor enclosure completed two summers
ago with good intentions of building a double door entry at a later
date. As many people do, we kept putting it off. Well, there are two
incidents that happened, that forced us to realize just how important
the double door entry is! First incident being...forgetfulness...
Sammy & Benji were in the living room with my husband, Dave. I
decided to go out into the enclosure to pick up toys they had taken out
thru their tunnel. The tunnel allows them to go out to the enclosure
from their indoor monkey room. I left the door to the enclosure
open...thinking it would be alright since Sammy & Benji were in the
living room with Dave. In the meantime, Sammy & Benji had got into a
spat and Dave separated them by putting Sammy in the monkey room! He
forgot all about me being in the outdoor enclosure! By the time he
realized it, it was too late! Sammy spotted the gate open and ran out!
We were very lucky that time! She just ran to the top of the enclosure
and came to me when I offered her a snack!
Second incident being... Emergency Situation!
We hung a new trapeze type toy out in the enclosure and was sitting in
the kitchen, looking out the window, watching Sammy & Benji play
with their new toy! All of a sudden, Benji put his head and arm thru the
triangle shaped ring and appeared to be stuck! I ran out with key in
hang! Luckily, Benji was already free from the ring and Sammy had been
so concerned about my fear...she didn't even try to escape! The problem
came when Dave was trying to pass the ladder in to me so I could take
the trapeze out of there! We managed to pass the ladder back and forth
but it was a struggle! At which time, I looked at Dave and said,
"The perfect example of WHY we need a double door entry!"
I am proud to announce the completion of our outdoor enclosure WITH the
double door entry!
