There is a new tradition here on the farm. When I go out to clean the coop and let the hens out, Timi leads the way down the path, then jumps up on the shelf and gets two oyster crackers (the hens get a handful of crackers to get them away from the door so I can get in the coop without stepping on a hen). This was the first tradition. Cali likes to break into the kitchen when the door opens, and we get to chase a cat around the kitchen island. The new tradition is that I now have a basket in the kitchen, and simply put it on the floor and Cali, who adores baskets, jumps in. I pick up the basket and carry her to the barn, put the basket in the garden cart, and she gets out. I am officially a "cat carrier". And before you ask, we do NOT spoil our critters!
