Tomorrow’s project just came via UPS this afternoon. Hiro, our wanderer, is just nuts being inside the house. As in peeing on the counters and attacking other cats. I don’t mind letting him be an indoor/outdoor cat (no lectures please) but he pees in the neighbor’s shed, all over their equipment, and that’s really not an option. We’ve tried playtime inside, Prozac, walking him on leash, training him to do tricks…and nothing is really as much to his liking as being outside. He especially likes killing things, but I’m not willing to help him with that one.
What we did order him was the Purrfect Playpen, a new containment product, 5′ x 15 ‘ with a roof. And we ordered him a dog house to go inside, with a flat roof he can jump on. But he can also go inside for a cat bed and water dish. And we have an old potting bench with three levels for him to climb on and hang out under. Tomorrow’s task…and maybe Friday’s depending…is to assemble all of this so he can have a summer (and probably fall and spring) home. He’ll be in indoor/outdoor cat again…just not free to roam the neighborhood (or kill bunnies).
(Isn’t he gorgeous??)
The video the company posted about this new Purrfect Playhouse shows it being easy to assemble, something I can do. I’ll let you know! It really does need some furniture, however. The poor cat in the video looks mucho stressed not having anyplace to hide!
Here’s hoping it makes him happier. And that is is as easy to put together as it looks in the video…somehow I doubt it!
