It's already a scorcher here!
I hope everycat and doggie's having a good summer.
Soon, mommy will start putting the wire over our catio.
Yes, she built the frame last summer and my Angel brother Patrick was able to play in the frame and enjoy it before he passed.
Then she covered the frame in a cheap mesh that wasn't UV stabilized and after only 6-8 weeks in 105+ summer, it shattered like thin dry spaghetti!
So there it has sat.
Mom just was able to get a roll of the welded wire and this will last for good! So in the next week or so (mom's been cutting trees and brush this week) the catio will be enclosed.
It's been a long time coming as mom used reclaimed 2x4s from a patio cover and fence...but it's coming.
Hopefully the deck paint is still good (for some added boards) because tho it was garaged, it got incredibly HOTT last year.
We will see.
But the wire is here and waiting =)
Kitten season was fairly heavy and mom had fosters and some dumped babies including a couple bottle-suckers. Only got two left to rehome and we're doing good. Mom's still at low-wage job and part-time but she's working and able to budget for the rescue babies so that's worked out.
~ We never asked to rescue or put out the word but somehow kittens appear. Sometimes in boxes even =( ~
We're not on Catster as much as we'd like and I miss you all terrible. It's just that new Catster freezes up my comp or takes super long to load.
I recently did an interview with an epaper called Anipal Times about being a blind kitty. Please take time to read it My Interview
Purrrrs and Luv to you all!

Happy summer!! Your catio sounds like it is going to be great fun. Your Mom sure is keeping busy. Glad to hear she has been able to rehome so many of the rescue babies. Loved the interview.

Hi Christopher! I read your pawsome story in Anipal Times. You rock, dude! I hope more hoomans consider adopting a blind or deaf kitty. Those who don't, do not know what fun they are missing.
Love you, my furiend!

Pawsome interview my friend!
