So we had a 10 minute countryside drive to my sister in law’s house today… 🙂 Gattina is generally very relaxed when she’s in the car, but this time she wasn’t “trapped” in her transport basket but could wander about almost freely. She was so curious and excited by all the fascinating sights from the window!
This is her, enjoying the first sunbeams in the morning in the northern german refuge. Of course on her (yes – of course it’s hers!) favourite pile of garden waste. She’s so happy, content and relaxed – what a life for a cat.
Here’s the Lady of the House lying in her favourite spot, where the catnip grows 🙂
It seems there was something “International Cat Day” going on these days that I have shamefully neglected. So here’s my belated contribution: “Gattina”, the Lady of the House.
Since the Lady of the House was so excited about all the tall trees in the northern germany refuge, I made her a stance that she can sit in and observe things from above. Precisely as she likes it.
It consists of a wooden potato storage box from the hardware store that I reinforced a little (my pretty lady is a little heavy) and a simple board. I reinforced this one as well so it won’t flex so much in the middle. It’s mounted on a height of approximately 2 meters with two shelf supports and that’s it.
So this is the girl next door in the northern germany refuge. Her name is “Patch” and she’s sooo pretty, sooo nice and sooo cute. I fall for her 🙂
Another toy I made for the lady of the house: A self-scratching/brushing appliance made from scrap wood and a simple hand washing brush. She’s not yet really familiar, but at least all the way curious about it 🙂Motörhead’s “Cat Scratch Fever” – for your listening pleasure!
Just hot-glue some of those inside toilet paper cardboard rolls into a carton box, randomly drop in some favourite cat treats and there you go! No cost, no fuzz and much fun!
(Unless she’s just lazy and more or less intelligent enough to just topple the whole thing over in order to get her paws on all the delicious good stuff 🙂 ).

I’m (somewhat) social too!
