Feline furniture

I’ve gone over cat-related furniture in the past but recently have been thinking about it again now that Mr. Sparky Lewis has just had surgery and seeks a comfortable place to recuperate.

I’ve been looking at some options for comfier kitty beds. Take a look.

Some of them I think we could even make. That is a terrifying thought…

Make a home for your house plants: an infographic

I have always lived in homes full of plants and am always amazed to see a house with nothing green to be seen.

I found this infographic to inspire those of you who have no plants to think about it. Even a silk plant might make a difference and your cats won’t likely eat a fake plant.

New beds for the boys

Not only do we need a new bed but so do the boys.

It’s time to upgrade from the cardboard boxes collected from the local grocery store. I’ve found a few on Etsy that are also a bit of an upgrade from the local box pet store.

I like this teepee. I saw it recently in a magazine and it will be great if our fat cats can get out of it.

This felted bed is cute but it looks like something that would get chewed mighty quickly.

This one is great but alas it appears nicer than our current furniture. It will have to wait until we get new furniture as well.

Definitely some things to think about!

Harmony in a hammock

This miserable weather has me thinking about our hammock trees.

We have two perfectly placed oak trees in the backyard with two perfectly placed hooks in the bark that have been a source of many a sound snooze for friends, family and likely unknown passersby when we aren’t around. They look a little like this though I can’t seem to find a good photo in my albums. The hammock trees are about the best place to flake out in nice weather which I plan to do when this winter is over.

However in recent years the trees have grown and begun to swallow up the hooks and one tree is starting to show his age and may not weather the test of time. We’re working on some pruning that may help but I hope to get a few more years out of our lovely hammock trees.

We also need a new hammock. The old white, many-stringed behemoth that someone brought back from Mexico has lost my confidence. It is time for a new one. I’ve been perusing the internet and while their prices are a bit steep it is a sound investment in weekend rest!

And of course it couldn’t hurt to have one or two (or three) for the boys!
