What’s your never ending animal project?
Everywhere I go people are requesting updates on how my cat enclosure is going! Well I should say the never-ending cattery building mission – because it’s not actually going to enclose anything until it’s finished! And I thought I would be finished 4 weeks ago! lol
We have just moved house and are consequently needing to build a new cattery! Our two beautiful felines don’t leave our property for a variety of reasons! One of the big one’s being I am a huge conservationist and we have a lot of native New Zealand birds visit our gardens & I feel out cats would love to … (fill in the blanks).
So here’s it’s evolution in pictures! All the wood used so far is wood brought with us from our old house & wood lying around on our new property!
The cat netting is also recycled from our old house where out entire back garden was netted over!
I got told off for the photo below from wifey! She was totally correct – selfies and ladders don’t mix lol … But now that it’s taken it’s cool to see a birds eye view!
Next step was access from the house! – The guy who installed the cat doors said this was only the second time in 50 years he has put a door somewhere as odd as an elevated bathroom window (Which will be their exit from the south end of the house! – with added climbing structures of course).
Finally this week I have added a door so we can access the space from our garden. Once again this was recycled and used to be on the front of our previous house to prevent the cats from running out onto the road…
The final wall is going to go where the step ladder is in the above image! So excited to hopefully get this done soon ? ??? lol
What about you? What projects have you started for your animals that have taken a little bit longer than expected? Looking forward to hearing from you!
