Remember the old?

When we first built the catuary? And things were thrown together in a hurry to give the kitties a safe place?
The old cathouse (shed)

And what I have been working on for the past two weeks.... gutting, reinsulating, framing and installing a real window, and putting up walls. Not perfect but a darn sight better than before!!

Greyson - the first thing he did was test the walls for scratching strength.

Zara is very quiet and reserved. She wasn't sure what she should do so she ran into the thing she was familiar with... the sleeping room.

Awwwwww wow wow wow wow wow wow wow wow wow wow wow wow

My Goodness!! Look at them!! I love that one climbing the post!!

Imagine what these kitties think 14+, after seeing what they have seen with their little eyes, probably wanting to give up hope at one time, and then you come along. I cannot imagine what kind of world we would live in if there were even just a few more like you! You are amazing at what you do for these cats, and I can just hope that one day I can make a difference as big as you do!

I truly believe there is a special place as a reward for those that help those that need it most, and 14+, you are helping those that need it most, there isn't much else that needs the kind of help lonely, unwanted cats need, true you are, I hope you know that!

Great job on the shed!!! they look SOOO HAPPY!!! Can you say..... spoiled????? lol!! It looks great!!

I mean... uhmmm.. I am not to sure... perhaps I need to see a few more pics to truly understand, you know... how the kitties are adjusting and stuff.. yes... a few more pics please

OMG, that looks like a great setup, kudos to you .

Zare and Kearn are just like Puddles, new litter, better go use before somebody else does

And Jasper would have to leave his scent by scratching everything too .

Thanks ladies. And thanks for the kind words LML.
It's funny, Greyson from the minute I first picked him up rubbed his cheek on mine. Marking me already for his. Fast worker. Zara does the same but she waited a little while to do it. The two babies haven't shown any interest in me yet. Except for this morning when Kearn wanted to use my leg as a climbing post.

Our kitty, Kitty use to have a nifty toy like Calysta's but Gryphon got hold of it and managed to get the ball out!

Great pictures 14+ and it's amazing how things have progressed!

Nice job, 14+!! Greyson seems to be enjoying the view during his morning scratch I predict the window is going to be very popular. They're hoping you put in a bird feeder for them to watch.

A bird feeder? In a sanctuary with 27 kitties? Poor birdies!!!!! The house the fosters are in is the old shed which is beside the newer, bigger cat house hazel. They can keep an eye on the other kitties.

I have a big one in the house, one in the big cathouse, and now one in the small fosterhouse. They all get played with. The one in the house not so much. Go figure.

Outside the cattery, 14+...put it outside! Put some PVC around the post to keep critters from scaling it et voila! Instant entertainment!

Weelllll hazel - I figure the trees that are in the catuary are filled with birds. They keep the kitties quite happy watching them. Where the window is situated for the fosters' shed the kitties wouldn't be able to see a feeder anyway. KMK's house is in the way.
There is a wind chime in the tree right outside the window. They can see and hear it. Plus they have tons of toys to play with. I think they are pretty happy. (I hope)

We used a metal pole and DH bent some metal to hang feeders on, critters can't get to the birds or the seed, and Rose loves watching them from the deck. Jasper and Sweet Pea will sit under the feeders and just watch them but they can't jump high enough to get them.
