What The Flap?








The Hubby has installed cat flaps in multiple places around our old house, to give Angel and Chuck access to rooms that we humans close up.  These images are from the once-porch-now-family room, leading into the dining area.  In the winter, this family room acts as a air lock, keeping the cold out of the main house.  The family room also is a bit of a storage area, but every window has a set up so the cats can look out comfortably.

Although I refrain from showing photos of litter boxes, you are looking at one here.  Notice the puppy pee pads taped to the knotty pine paneling, due to Chuck's insistence that he stand UP halfway through urination.  He does not do this every time, nor every day...but often enough that we need to preserve the house!  We believe this is a symptom of his constipation, or he may be getting arthritic.  We have a holistic vet visit scheduled for this coming Saturday; this is one item on my list to discuss with Dr. Sheppard.

  4. I was wondering why you had the puppy pads like that. I use them under the litter boxes for when someone goes too close to the edge. I hope all goes well with the holistic vet.

  6. We think the flap idea is very cool. In fact, now we want one to get into our mom's always-closed-off bedroom!

    Too bad we don't live closer--we have all sizes and styles of (unused) cat boxes you could try. (Well, we *did* use them at one time or other until we got our gigantic Rubbermaid storage bin cat box.)

  8. Wow, the kitty flap is so artfully hidden next to the door--very nice! I hope things go well with the holistic vet. A friend of mine just started acupuncture on her 14 year old cat with apparent pain and stiffness in his hips. After two sessions, she says he already seems to be moving more and more easily.

  9. We have a great high-backed litter box made by Tidy Cats. Skootch is a high flyer, and even HE can't pee over the top of that one!
