Boredom Leads to Cat House

I was bored. Always dangerous. Bored in Target (as I happened to be on that occasion) is usually a financial liability. Instead of spending bored money on myself I decided to shop for my cats. I selected this the Large Cat Jungle Gym. It looked like something the cats would enjoy and had the added bonus of lots of parts to put together so I was assured some amusement as well.

I brought it home, fired up the camera and asked who wanted to help me put it together. Friday was laying in the window watching birds. Kit stole a piece of the jungle gym and zipped down the hall to play with it. Hemmy offered to supervise.

Luckily I now have Seti who was delighted to help. Lucky, lucky me.

Seti and I got to work. He was responsible for touching each piece with his paw as I picked it up and biting the instructions. I did the rest. He took his responsibilities seriously. He was concerned about this particular note that was attached to the pop up canvas "cat house."
We took the warning seriously; it was on yellow paper after all. We opened the cat house very, very carefully and were disappointed when the best it could muster was a small stretch. We were hoping for something a touch more dramatic. We moved on.

After staring at the picture and screwing my face up into various expressions of confusion and frustration Friday took pity on me and helped. I soon made a box.

I was pretty pleased with my accomplishment. I'm no engineer. I'm a pet sitter. Luckily, I'm pretty creative so once I got the feel for the pieces I really picked up speed. I made lots of boxes.

It didn't take long to put the canvas pieces on either. Soon we had a new cat fort and Supervisor Hemmy decided to be the first in. He deemed it "fun" and soon everyone else came in for a turn.

Seti's favorite part? The dangly toy mice of course!

Love the pictures! You capture cats' personalities so well. Right this second, my own cat is playing hide and seek with my semi-deflated birthday balloons. I have a feeling one or two of yours would have fun with this game.

That looks like a fabulous cat gym! :) Love all the photos. :) Too bad we don't have a Target here in Munich.

Those always look like so much fun. I wish my human would give in and buy me one.

Want that! Moooom! What do you mean, "Where would we put it?"

Jennifer said...

Dragonheart, maybe you could order one online? It can't be expensive to ship because it doesn't weigh much.

Victor's mom, I don't know where to put mine either. It's in the middle of the room!

Chey, four out of four cats in my house LOVE it! You would too!

Wow, that looks like terrific fun! We have a Target only 1 1/2 miles away so we think that our Food Lady should go shopping now!

Thank you so much for having this online. We (my wife, my cat Trinket and myself (just moved and had to put the jungle gym back together again without instructions.. I googled "target cat jungle gym instructions" and was able to put Trinket's back together by looking at your pictures. So.. we thank you!

This cat house is very nice! I know "galileo" (my cat) is going to love it because more than a shelter it is soft of a playground for cats.
