OK, if we had a pet door, I can totally see my kids doing this. Luckily, the child was found by a cab driver... and not hurt.<br><br><a href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/**********/6669021.stm" target="_blank">http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/e...re/6669021.stm</a><br><br>
"Morgan Place, 15 months old, was spotted by a taxi driver about 300 yards (274m) from his family's house in Crawshawbooth, Rossendale.<br><br>
His parents believe his older brother lifted the toddler from his cot, before he found his own way out.<br><br>
The cabbie who found him, Shahid Iqbal (a Muslim...no terrorist association! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">) said: "I thought I was having a daydream. I was shocked."<br><br>
Mr Iqbal asked around to see if anyone knew who the baby was, before calling the police.<br><br>
Morgan had crawled out of the flap - designed for dogs and cats - and even managed to open a gate..."

We have a kitty door, which they fortunately can't fit through. But that doesn't stop them from occasionally trying. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: Glad this one had a happy ending.

Yep, my kids used to do that before they found out how to open the window locks and go out via the roof. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

Oh, dear. I had a friend who locked herself out and HAD to wriggle into her kitchen through the doggy door! She's 6-ft tall -- it was a great image.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

It's not meant to be gloomy, it's meant to be a joke on how in the US media... one rarely hears mention of a Muslim without the word terrorist associated with it.

I took it as a serious joke, missed the sarcasm completely.

Ah... that's why I added the winking smilie. (I'm Muslim, BTW... it's always interesting to me and my friends to see how the US media jumps to point out Muslims who do bad things... but rarely point out the Muslims who do good.)

I am so glad I don't have a pet door.<br><br>
Busy Mommy - there are just no words! Kids on the roof?? Your choices would be to tie them up or make them grow wings! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

(Dear Penelope - I beg in advance for your forgiveness - I cannot help myself - and I apologize to you completely for what I am about to do.)<br><br>
See now - many of us have no choice but to have a pet door - everytime there is a terrible incident regarding pet doors - someone on these boards has to chime in on how terrified they are of pet doors. Pet doors do a lot of good for a lot of people. Coming on here with some uppity comment on how pet doors are bad makes those of who use pet doors feel totally excluded. Both of my pets absolutely love their pet doors! Their lives are more happy and full filled because of their pet doors.<br><br>
If you are happy about your choice to not use a pet door then please start a thread about how you are happy about your choice. Don't imply that those of us who use them are somehow lesser pet owners because we choose to.

I hope you're kidding?<br><br>
I'm only glad I don't have a pet door because my kid would wriggle out of it. Maybe other kids aren't so devious. Also, I have an indoor cat, so a pet door would be - not so useful.<br><br>
I *think* you're kidding! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">
