Those are pretty awesome enclosures. I really like the one that goes out through the top of the window! I keep telling TB that he should build Monkey a system of tubes and platforms around the inside of the house so she can get her wild side out without tripping me. We could just continue it outside!

I can just picture that! What a nice daddy you had to do that for Goph, and what a good idea for a bell he could ring when he wanted to come inside.

He used to sit outside the window while Mom was washing dishes and he would chatter at her. They'd have conversations. He was a good cat.

It is really nice when the family helps with the daily chores. Violet particularly likes to help fold the nice clean laundry!

It would be better if one of the piles wasn't my dish towels!

Much like cats and towel folding...or trying to make the bed. The bed usually has "cat lumps".

No dish is completely dry without dog hair.
