Sunday adventure

Miss Peach is holding an auction to help with Shadows vet bills. These are the cute Salt and Pepper shakers .


Thank you Miss Peach!


Kirby: WE rested, but Mom and Dad did not. Mom's quilt/craft room is not covered by the house air condition/heater. It has a 'window' unit shoved in a hole in the wall. Well, It quit working last winter. That was not a problem, cause we have fairly mild winters. But when it started getting over 100 every day, Mom said something needed to be done.

Angel: Friday night our bean sister came over to help Dad install a new unit. It is not that Mom is not capable of helping, it is just that she is short and the unit was over her head.

Kirby: After they got that done, Mom started clearing up the stuff. Since she has not been able to work in there, she has a filing system called "pile it" . And believe us, it was piled. So after errands on Saturday, she and Dad started in cleaning. She did not just put stuff up, she threw stuff away and dusted and swept. She went through cabinets and boxes and cleared all the surfaces! It is a whole new room!

Angel: This morning, they continued working. Dad had some work to do on the outside of the new cold air box, making it where the aid did not sneak our or bugs could not sneak in. Then he did some work on the front of the house, before the temperature got above 100.

Kirby: This is where the adventure came in. Last year Mom bought a screen box that has shelves in it. It is so city kitties can go outside and be safe.
It is not very big, but I can stand up under the shelf or on top of the shelf. Mom shoved me inside and she and Dad set it on the front porch.

I could smell the grass, trees, birds, paint ( Dad was painting the porch support post) and all sorts of things. There was this big Blur Jay that was teasing me. he would look over the edge of the roof on my left and say 'peek-a-boo' then he would disappear only to show up on the right side and say it again. It was lots of fun. I got to stay outside for ages.



Mom: Kirby, it was only half an hour!

Angel: I did not want any part of that adventure. I stayed inside where it was cool!

Mom: Dad is talking about getting a large metal dog kennel for the yard so Kirby can put his paws out ans get closer nature! The net cage has tabs on either end . You are suppose to run a rope through the holes on the tabs and stake it down so active kitties won't turn it over. When I took his new 'toy' down the hall for storage, he followed me and talked to e. I think he was afraid it was going away..

Where did your mom get that box for the outside? Tommy might feel safer if we had something like that. We got a big backyard--but she knows we'd find a way to escape.... :)

A pile for everything and everything in its pile, that's what our humans seem to think!

It's nice to be able to enjoy the fresh air without worrying about safety...

Sounds like a very busy and productive weekend for the parental units! My sewing room is piled high with fabric, just like my kitchen table is piled high with papers and my living room is piled high with books. The screened box for Kirby looks like a wonderful idea...the only problem we see for the dog kennel would be that Kirby for sure would pick up fleas from being able to walk on the ground.

Cool outside playroom! I need one of those for camping! Ebay here we come!

We love that screen box. We also love those salt and pepper shakers.

That's a pretty nice playroom you got there! When I was little, my mom would set up the dog crate outside for me. It was a lot of fun!

Forever Foster said...

What a great playtent! That would be such a cool way to get outside time.

CCL Wendy said...

It looks like you had a good time for the whole half hour, Kirby! In the last picture, though, it looks like you are trying to eat your own cage! I agree with your Dad and think you need a bigger outdoor space.

Gandalf and Grayson said...

pughy said...

How is Shadow doing? That is great of Miss Peach to help out with the auction.
I am not sure if I would be scared to go out in that screen box. Don't you sweat too much outside in the heat we are having?
Sorry I have not been around.....hoping that after Wed, things will be much better.

Kirby, that looks like a great outdoor playhouse. It looks like you had a great time. It also sounds like your beans were busy, so it was nice that they remembered you too.

Wow that was a busy weekend! That is so cool that Kirby got to go outside for a while. My cats are more like Angel - they prefer inside too. The idea of a crate is good - it would be nice to run around in!
