Cat Hotel Complete...until I get crazypants again

The final (hah!) bit of work on The Cat Hotel is done.  The hubby and I added a piece of clear acrylic across the balcony on the second floor, to act as a windbreak.  The bottom floor already has a windbreak inside; a hallway really, but I noticed that Patty O'Malley tends to use the upstairs, and I want him to be as cozy as possible when Old Man Winter joins the party soon.  We originally had plans for two compartments on that second floor, but once Sammy (R.I.P., baby!) left us, we blocked off the extra entrance, and insulated everything carefully.  After fresh straw was packed in earlier this month, I plugged in the warming pad on the bottom apartment, and now we have pretty much done all we can for now.  Have thought about draping a tarp around the whole thing, but hesitate due to the potential for the tarp to flap in the wind.  Flapping would drive the cats nutty, I'm sure!  I'm still thinking about it; that's my crazypants way!  Truly, I'll never quit trying to make the 'o' cats' quarters as warm, secure and comfortable as if they were living in the house with me.  Thoughts of pitching a tent and living with them on the deck have crossed my mind too...like I say, crazypants!
