My Gift

GEORGE

Well, here it is. This was my purrthday surprise --- a screened in porch. Isn't it great!!! I'll show you more pictures later.

Derby was the first one to talk about his porch and Mom thought it was a great idea. That way we can be outside and watch Mom or Dad while they work in the yard and they can keep an eye on us, too. Meanwhile we're still safe from ticks & 'squitos, getting lost or things that could harm us. I must admit, I was a little nervous at first, so Max agreed to go in with me. He's a good brother.

















Mom got the larger size, which would actually hold the entire Crew if we all wanted to be outside at the same time. Then she put an old bathroom rug in it and an old pillow. This is the life of luxury, don't you agree? For anyone interested in getting one of these, Mom found it at Target in the pet supply aisle. It's actually for dogs and comes in 2 sizes, large (for 3 or 4 cats) and small (for 1 or 2 cats) for about $25 and $20. And when you're not using it, it folds flat for storage.

Zippy, Sadie & Speedy were the first ones to guess it correctly, and of course Derby knew right away. I guess my friends know me pretty well! Hahahahaha!

Thanks so much to everyone who sent me Catster stars, rosettes & zealies for my purrthday and for all your good wishes. I really appreciate it!

Some of the older cats don't think I should refer to myself as a Geezer yet, and maybe they're right. Actually I don't feel any different than I did when I was 9, so I think I'll take Muffin's advice and refer to myself as a "mature gentleman".

Way cool. I'll have to look into that. We've only seen the bigger ones and those are so expensive!

I didn't even think to go over to catster. How rude of me.

This is a great thing! You can play with it or just sit in it or claw at it a bit...
Sorry. I just like clawing. And biting. That´s the feral in me...

Happy Purrthday George. Your new porch looks wonderful. I like your colors better than mine.

But mum has never put a rug in mine. I will have to bug her about that.

Plus mum sometimes uses it in the house, when she needs to keep me in one place for a few minutes. More room than sitting in the PTU.

What a fantastic present! It looks like you are having fun looking out the screen window, too. Thanks for the details on where to get one. I might have to ask my Mommie for one.
