Catio Thursday

Catio wall 

Back corner of catio.

The two windows to be used as accesses.

The catio view.

Thank Baste!  The catio finally got started today!  Well, furriends here's the shakedown:  15 x 8 feet,  brick wall on 3 sides,  the framing is being built, the wire will cover that and there will be a door with THREE latches and a LOCK.  There will be a roof over the top for those hot, sunny, Oklahoma days and the two windows will have pet doors in them for access to the house.  (Mommy doesn't want Princeton hemming any kitteh up with no way out.) Unfortunately, Mommy is installing a little camera so she can keep an eye on the wild child  with her laptop.  The catio will be off-limits during nighttime hours.

Good weather and cod-willing we will be trying this bad boy on fur size by late this weekend.  (She also commissioned a climbing wall  for said wild child.)    We know the view isn't much now, but eventually spring will come and we can plant grass and trees.

Whew, now for a subject we don't like to talk about:  Prancer Pie has his vet checkup tomorrow.  Mommy is a nervous wreck after Saturday's Vet disaster.  We hate to ask again, but we could use some purrs for Prancer Pie and the Mommy.  We'll update when we get home and later when the bloodwork comes in.

We hope all our furriends have a super Thursday.  Purrs, y'all.

UPDATE:  Prancer Pie's V-E-T visit was changed to Monday at 4:15.  Now Mommy has to dread it all weekend, but gives her a little more time to get over Princess's departure.


  1. The catio will be GREAT! Are dogs allowed? Just askin'. And of course I will offer up my special prayers. I love to do that and I am honored to help in any way I can.

  2. This catio plan is utterly brilliant. We want full details. Wil lthe camera be available for public viewing ?

    And of course we keep paws crossed for Prancer and for Mommy. It must be utterly awful to visit that place again for her. Loads of purrs xxxxx

    PS We are expecting some northern lights tonight or tomorrow so will be watching.

    I am purring lots for Prancer, and especially for your human - paws crossed everything goes well and all the tests look fine!

  5. How exciting and amazing and wonderful of your humans! "If you build it they will come!" We bet you will! I may need to hop over and inspect it myself!

    Purrs and prayers are coming your way. M says she can't blame you for being nervous,

  21. That ratio is going to be the "Cat's Meow." MOL. It is so sad that Princess won't be there to share all the fun you are going to have. We love our screened in deck! Our mom now has the idea that she'd like to have a camera to watch us. Hiss, boo!
