Mancat Visitors.


Geoffrey’s House is ready for our rainy fall weather. Last week, Mom spent a whole day cursing working with scrap wood and shingles to make a covered area that, hopefully, will keep most of our Pacific Northwest rain out of the outside kitties’ food bowl.

Mom also wishes everyone to know that she couldn’t measure or cut anything square if her life depended on it. Even with the use of a square! She says she built and tore apart this covered patio three times before finally slapping it together and calling it done. We think it looks okay. As long as it works, right?

And then, just as we knew would happen after Geoffrey’s passing…


There’s a new kitty in the neighborhood!


Our Mom calls him Mo and says that’s a cross between Domino and Oreo, the two names she thinks most people might call a handsome black and white boy like this. Mo is a newly moved-in neighbor’s cat, one of three (!) who are allowed to live outside and the only friendly one of the bunch. Mom thinks he’s a year old and neutered. And as soon as he’ll sit still long enough to listen (he’s very bouncy), she’ll go over the rules of living in our garden – No picking on birds or squirrels. Stay away from all neighbor kids. And visit as often as you like. Geoffrey would like someone like you using his house!

  13. I love Mo’s patterns! What a cutie!

  14. Geoffrey’s House is pawsome! We kinda wish we lived closer so we could use it.

  15. Mo sure is cute! We bet that Geoffrey is smiling down from the Bridge right now. πŸ™‚

  16. We think Geoffrey’s house is gorgeous and very inviting! We bet lots of kitties are very happy for it especially when rainy season comes!

  17. Welcome, Mo! You’ve picked the right house.

  18. oh our mom keeps talking about this kind of project for what she calls “her ferals”. but seeing the finished project gives her more inspiration to begin shopping at home depot for materials. thanks for the inspiration.

  19. We love the porch addition to the house. It looks great. We hope that Mo can follow the rules and become a frequent yard visitor.

  20. My mom’s secret motto is “measure 500 times, STILL screw it up,” so your mom shouldn’t feel bad at all. Plus, we think it’s pretty cool and will work just fine.

    Have fun with your new neighbor!

  21. TW gets so mad when peeps let their cats roam outside cos its so dangerous here. Geoffrey’s house is looking good for the new comers.

  22. That little “patio cover” should work perfectly. Hopefully your new neighbor / visitor kitty stays safe outside.

  23. Wow Mo is really dreamy! And your mom’s cat canopy thingy is much better than anything I could have ever put together MOL

  24. Goodness what a cutie! And we like the house too. Angles are interesting.

  25. The house looks wonderful! You did a great job and newby Mo will likely spend a lot of time in it – rain or shine.

  26. cute little fella,xx Speedy

  27. That is a find shelter for the food bowls.
    Mo is a good looking man cat and I am sure Geoffrey is looking down guiding him to your safe garden.

  28. I love that cat house…and the cat. Pawkisses for a Happy Sunday πŸ™‚

  29. Great job on the house! It looks awesome!
