There was a mystery gift and it wasn't under the Christmas tree. Rather it was sequestered in behind the tv and covered over with a blue blanket ~ its hasty wrapping paper. When, what to my wondrous eyes should appear...
five cats round a new cat tree
A brand new cat tree for the cats to enjoy! Me too, actually, because now they won't be on every other surface in the house and since they lost their last cat tree this past spring, they've been wanting one back. 
My husband made this tree from bits of rough hewn wood he found round the dairy. When, I don't know and when he got it into the house and down the stairs into the basement where I rarely go, I don't know and he isn't telling...
But I've been asking for one for a-g-e-s to keep the cats off other kitchen surfaces that they've claimed as their own and out from under my feet.

After putting it in the kitchen for the time being its become the most popular place in the house! Come January it will go in the living room front window.

This is the only way Molly and Sassy will share - 1. when they can't see each other and 2. when they are on different tiers.

Molly, Winston and Blackie on the cat tree

For once Molly isn't hitting Winston and she can't see Blackie, so he's safe.
Of course, there's a story here, the grey cat on the highest tier is a little female; the one beside is a male...

Since she was fixed she's gained weight and  attitudes toward every cat that used to beat her up.

So guess what?

Pretty much, you guessed it; she will take after any cat now...

  1. Glad you got a surprise! Nice to see those kitties loving it too.

  2. Between our cats and the dairy cats, there isn't a cat around that has not, at some point, sat perched enjoying the view. Thanks Betty.

  3. looks like one cool cat tree put some pine cones and green pine evergreen branches on it and a great place to take photos of your cats!

  4. Hadn't considered that, but it would spruce it up a bit. Thanks for the suggestion Grey Eagle.

  5. Our cat trees allow your cat to go on those adventures the outside has to offer without ever actually leaving the indoors of a safe zone. Make sure your cat is in shape and having fun climbing a cat tower that provides a challenge and experience he/she has never seen before.
