Bird House



One afternoon, Goro & I went out on the
deck and found something rather unusual.



There were pine needles, twigs,
etc. scattered on the floor.


And we found this!


Well, birds picked a convenient location.
Right in front of the restaurant.


However, it couldn't be worse because...


It's right inside the catio!
(What are they thinking?)


No, no, Goro. Let's go inside.
You can't play with it.


That's a bird nest.
Mama bird is going to lay eggs there.


Not a good idea, Goro.

I had to remove the nest before birds
moved in. Removing active nest is unsafe
for babies (plus I've learned it's illegal!)


We felt bad so we got this bird house.


Then set it near where
the nest was being built.


And a few days later...


Potential resident!


Maybe some day, we'll see bird babies
coming out of the house.

I sure look forward to meeting them :-)


Not "eating." Goro. I said "meeting."


***

We are new to bird housing. After reading more
about it, I learned it wasn't really a good location.
(Near door, not in shade, etc.) We may move it to
somewhere else if the house doesn't "sell." Either
way, I hope it gives bird family a good home :-)

Goro's 7th Birthday



May 30 is Goro's birthday.
He will turn 7!


Gotta say Goro is born with an
incredibly gorgeous tummy.


Breathtaking view.


Like a moth to a flame,
I'm always drawn to his tummy.


And get burned.


Well, Goro (usually) goes easy with
his teeth and claws.


Goro is our tummy-flashing gentle-boy :-)
Happy birthday, darling. We love you!!

Cat Shelf 6 (Continued)




Hello, this is Goro.


In the last post, Mom shared part of
our latest Cat Shelf project.

She asked me to show you some more.


First of all, carpet is placed on top of all the
shelves. It's to make a non-slip surface.


Now, follow me.


See the curve bed there?
It's installed rather low on the wall.


Do you know why?


It's because Dad wants to pet me 
when he is on the couch.

I know Dad, you are always my # 1.


OK, moving on.


I like lounging here.


Except that Mom always
tries to photograph my belly. 

She is such a pervert.


Let's go down from here.


You see there is this cat ladder.


Mom says I look like a little person
when I'm climbing up.


Here on the top.
Ladder gives another access
to the shelves.


OK, let's move to this tree.


Mom & Dad put carpet on top of the cabinet.
I enjoy napping there.


And here I am - back to where
I was in the 1st picture.


We hope you enjoyed our Cat Shelf tour!

Cat Shelf 6




Recently, we decided to
catify our living room.


Yes, this is our latest
installment of cat shelves.

Cat Shelf Project # 6

Here is my detailed (?) plan.


Result
Well, kind of sort of as planned :-)


Goro declared ownership of
the new wall bed.


Then Niko took over.


Of course, Goro wasn't ready to give over.


...which led to a fierce whapping war.


But later, peace was restored as
more beds & shelves were installed.


We'll share the rest of this project
in the next post :-)
