Sunday - The new cat tower part 2

Through Gizmo's Eyes

Today started out slowly. I spent the morning lying in the sun puddles in my room. Mum and dad spent the morning cleaning. I tried to play with Denali through the door, but really I just want to get a chance to get through the door. I keep lying in wait for when mum or dad opens the door to go into her room, but thats another story.

At lunch time mum and dad went to bunnings to get a new drill. They brought back a really good one. It drills through the hard wood really quickly. This means that dad could get back to work on my cat tower... finally some decent progress. First dad drilled holes in the wood and then screwed bits of wood together. Next they found some carpet off cuts to put on the base. Then dad used a grass mat to wrap around one pole. The grass tastes yummy and feels really good to claw. The next step was wrapping rope around one of the other poles, but dad ran out of rope half way through.

Next they decided, to create a comfy pillow top for the first platform. Mum found an old pillow, and a pet blanket in storage. They nailed it to the platform.

Then they did the best bit yet. They made a kitty nest! Mum used a hanging basket and they attached it to the tall post at a few points to make it stable. It is the most comfy place to sit in the house yet... it's even better than the hammock.

The tower apparently isn't finished yet. I can't wait to see what they do next. I think it's time for me to get back in the nest and have a nap. I hope you have a great Sunday.

Caturday - The new cat tower part 1

Through Gizmo's Eyes

So mum is a little late writing this as it happened on Caturday, but she was too busy with paperwork (I even tried to eat it away to help).

Dad was doing more interesting stuff outside on the balcony so I went to have a look. He was playing with wood. I tried to play too, but then dad got a little annoyed. So I rolled in some soft stuff dad called sawdust untill he swept it up.

Dad was cutting bits of wood with a tool called a saw and standing it up on another piece of wood. It looked kind of familliar. Then mum came and helped too and I saw what I think dad was trying to make...It looks like he was making a new cat tower! I love dad.

Hmmm no I think you need to move this bit more towards the corner.

Looking good

I tried to help, but dad said I was getting in the way (I had to inspect what it might look like and give him some pointers about what I wanted).

Unfortunately when dad got to the drilling part of making the tower, the drill stopped working. :(

This means the cat tower is not finished today. Maybe dad can buy a new drill and finish it tomorrow.

Cleaning Caturday

Through Gizmo's Eyes

I started the day waking mum and dad up early so they wouldn't be late to work...4.30am to be exact. Mum wasn't too impressed because they dont work on caturday. She gave me some food and then tried to go back to bed. Unfortunately I had woken up Denali as well and she was yelling. Denali yells even louder than me. I heard mum up till 5am trying to get Denali back to sleep.

Mum and dad eventually got up at 7am and I got a second breakfast. Then they got into a massive cleaning frenzy. My room, denali's room, the kitchen and bathroom. Then dad got me out of my comfy bed in the sun to give me a bath. I hate baths, but dad had to use a special shampoo to try to help ensure I don't get Denali's ringworm. I tried to play with her through the door this week, and she escaped her quarantine a few times too. Then I got de-floofed, and while I lay in the sun to dry, mum washed Denali and brushed her too. I can't wait till she is allowed out to play. Although she had better not ever lay a paw in my room... it's mine!

Mum said I should apologise for her not being able to write much this week. Between her 2 jobs, plus excessive cleaning for Denali, she only just had enough time to snuggle me, so the computer lay dormant.

She has to do some paperwork now, so she said she would get back on later to put some caturday photos up.
