Shelter Cats

Diesel and Catification

Eight year old Diesel is a cheerful engaging presence in the Meeting Room at PAWS.
He loves to sit on the perch looking out the interior window.

In 2018, when Rick built the shelves and Cat Walk, the window viewing platform looked like this.
After a few years of wear and tear, and pouncing cats, we could see that a problem was brewing in the front left corner.

Rick to the rescue!
One hundred feet of sisal rope, a pvc tube, and a lot of hot glue later, a solution was underway with the supervision of our cats at home (Ernie, Mickey Mouser and Rufus the Red).

Diesel is enjoying the view (safely supported) and the attention of visitors while he waits for his special someone to take him home.
