Easy on Sunday and Purrayers for Olive

We are very sad to say that Sweet Olive has gone over the Bridge. She was Gracie of the Tabby Cat Clubs niece. Please send Purrayers and post her memorial if you would like. Fly free sweet Olive! 

Now we will relax a bit with some more photos of our fancy decorated Tomcat Home.

Dad, like most good cat caretakers, worries about our needs. Play, Food, Treats, Health, Sleep and, of course Hygiene.

We are six healthy cats with good appetites so there is quite a bit of, uhh, yes, plenty of that. We also have an elder who is a bit large who...

Buddy Budd: "Youz betta watcher itz Timmerz! Ah listenerz!"

YES Buddy. So Buddy is of a healthy size and needs room. We also have a few "standers." Dad really cannot figure this out as it is not spraying. Rather it seems to be a preference. Go figure. With all this taken into account he has tried the jumbo litter pans, the jumbo corner litter pans, hooded and un-hooded, you get the idea. All were good but not good enough. So what do you do. Well Dad made us a new pan! Go Dad!

He will tell you how to do the nice cushion at the doors if your peeps are interested. He said this was a prototype and will be used in the bedroom closet. He will make another fancy one for out here. Check it out.
Buddy checking if everything came out ok. MOL.
Buddy Budd: "Whut! Ah Listener! Gonna get-cha!"

Chill Buddy. I wanted to show that even with a very large container you are a very big cat.
With the big doors he finds it easy to reach in
and finish up. 
I like the double doors. You never have that trapped feeling.
The sides are high enough that our "standers" do not overshoot.
You can't really see the door edges. Dad cut tubing and hot glued it around so it is nice and soft. Nothing sharp. Cool. 

So we are just about back to normal. 
Toby is watching our Critter TV.

I am going to let Fitz watch for a bit. Dad has to get our
new Window seats made. Soon I hope.

We also like to play on the cat run. I am sneaking in Dad's
area while Fitz is scenting up the edges.

As you can see. Back to normal.

Rumpy is all chilled out.

After a day of play we all needed a good nap.

Shhh... Look at that Buddy! Goodness he is a Big Dood!
Dad wanted us to Plug his new Bissell Lift Off Floors and More
Pet Vac. He says it is great. We agree. Nice and quiet. The nasty
Hose Monster has not been seen.

So there you have it. We are back home and living large. Dad has planned a cat walk up on the walls with perches and cubbys to relax and snoopervise out of. We will keep you infurmed of his progress. 

Finally. Buddy Invites all of our Furends to visit his Secret Garden for a snack and to have fun. He won the best summer picture at the Russian Blue Lounge on Catster. We are proud of our Big Buddy Budd
Com-on overz and visiter! Ah gotz plenty good goodies fur-Ya!
Yer Buddy Budd iz a good Buddy ta have!

Normal is sure good and y'all look like you're doing great! We were all so sad to hear about dear Olive.

Wow, that is a deluxe litter box! It sounds like your human has more great plans coming up!

Katnip Lounge said...

It's a TWO-HOLER...bwahahahahaha!!!

Seriously, you got a GREAT Dad, making all the things you need for a fun house.

Kat said...

We're so sorry to hear about Olive :( Our prayes are with Olive's family.

Tamago said...

Wow two doors! That is a cool litter box! And I love the "welcome" mats in front of the box :-)

Kitties Blue said...

Your new digs are looking great. When your dad finishes all his projects, it will be cat heaven. Your litter box looks great. We have extra bigs ones but no high sides or top. Mauricio could probably use one with high sides. Tanks for the invite to the secret garden. We'll be right over. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

What a great litterbox. We have one with high sides and one with low sides, but we have to climb up into the one with high sides. Yours with the two doors is really cool!

The Island Cats said...

That is a very interesting box. Our Zoey likes to hang her butt off the side and pee on the floor. We wonder if a box like that would help.

Swami Zoe said...

So sorry to hear about Olive! It's nice to find your blog though Timmy! You are a very handsome Tomcat! Me-Ommmmm

Double litters are worth double Pawkisses :)

Gattina said...

My cats won't go into a covered litter box, maybe they suffer claustrophobia ! We have two in the garage, unfortunately they use it although there is a huge garden ! Just to keep me busy !
The pictures are so cute !

Callie (a.k.a. Trouble) said...

That looks like a really cool litter box! Sorry we have not been posting or visiting much lately. Mommy has been fighting with some health issues lately and says that she does not feel like working for us right now. (Sigh). Apparently good help is not only hard to find but also hard to keep healthy!!

Uber-cool box! Can't wait to see what your Dad has in mind for window ledge seats and wall walks and cubbies. Your Dad sounds like he's the BEST! Purrs....

Timmy, I'm so sorry you lost dear Olive. It's always so heartbreaking to see our fur-sibs go Over The Rainbow Bridge, but knowing they are no longer in pain, and they are angels watching over us, helps our sad hearts. I've lost four fur-sibs over the past year, so believe me, I know how sad you are. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog. Did you friend me on Twitter? I'm @TattleCat Thanks so much. Herman!!!

Mickey's Musings said...

Hi guys! Just to let you know, Mom finally got to the post office today to mail you your cat rubber duckies you won in the auction for Mom Laura.

meowmeowmans said...

Your dad is awesome! We love that prototype two-door litter box, and the house is looking fantastic!

We love picnics. Can we still come over to join you?

Tigger Tales said...

What a wonderful litter box! I think I would have loved such a box. :) Our family is very happy you are back on Catster.

That is very sad news about Olive, we definitely send our prayers to her Mom and family. Buddy Budd, congrats on your picture it rocks for sure! Hey, we love your renos and new diggs, fabulous! You kitties must be loving it! And holy batman is that litterbox ever fab! (Hey thanks so much for giving us an award, sorry we are late to acknowledge it but we appreciate it and will blog about it next week!)

John Bellen said...

I visited Olive's site to leave my condolences. What a terrible loss.

I like your set-up, especially the entrance/exit litter-box. I wish I were handier. Thank you for offering to put Cammie on your Facebook page. I would be grateful for that. Do you need me to do anything on my end for it? Today, Cammie's life improves: Rachael is going back to her long-term foster-home and Cammie movies upstairs to the parlour, where she will have a view and fresh air. It will also be much warmer than in the basement but that will be a small price, I think.

That litterbox is gigantic !!
Don´t think I ever have seen one with double door´s before :)
ConCATulations to Buddy Budd on winning the best summer picture !

Ellen Whyte said...

So sad when someone passes. Our condolences.

We love your house! It's full of fun things for cats to muck about with. pawsome!

We're going to tell the lady to make us a litter bin like that. If she puts it where the current one is in Grr's room, it will help Grr get up on the bed too, because she can jump on it first. Nice!
