Kim is a rather strange cat. She seldom wanted to sleep inside, but did it sometimes. But since beginning of this year she only came in to say hello and fill her stomac. Then she went out again, sleeping under the table on a chair on our covered patio where I finally had put a towel. Sometimes she also used the dog house of our neighbor's dog. But now the summer (which hadn't been one) is gone and the garden furniture put away. Kim didn't change her habits and now sometimes even slept on the wet grass.

I was worried a little about this and as I had seen cat tents on some blogs I tried to buy one here. I couldn't find any.

But yesterday when I bought cat food in my usual pet shop, they had a tent ! and a real good one for outside ! It was only one on exposition, the shop owner wanted first to know if people were interested in it. I was ! I bought it immediately and here it is.

So far I couldn't take a picture of Kim in it, but she must have tried it because I saw that the plaid I had put in had moved a little. Hopefully she will use it !

Rosie and Arthur don't go outside when the weather is bad. Here they both check : To go or not to go ?

I am so glad that Kim used your tent just for her. You are so so lovely, Gattina~!!! I bet Kim will love you very much.

Rosie is very lucky cat and know how to enjoy happiness, I think they might be friends some time.

I am glad that you found a tent for Kim. I wonder why she wouldn't rather be inside when it is cold and wet. I think Rosie and Arthur have a much better idea.

We sure hope that Kim likes her tent and stays in it when it gets cold or rainy!

That was a very good idea with the tent!!! I am happy that you finally found one to put up outside.
Perhaps I could try out one one day? I have to ask my humans about that.
Have a lovely week end!!!

That's a great idea, Gattina. Some cats love the outdoor life!

Wow! I love your header, did you paint that?
It's beautiful, and Arthur looks great :))

that's a wonderful thing you did, Gattina. And you didn't force the cat to do anything she was not ready to do or was uncomfortable doing. I wish there were millions like you.

I think it's lovely that you bought a tent for Kim.

It's obvious the cats are pleased to see you home again.

This is only a short comment, as it's taken me two hours to get this far reading everyone's posts.

Take care.

Kim reminds us about Peder Pels (Fur). Even though he has a home, he loves to come to our summerhouse o be feeded and have some coz.

Cats know cat people - don't they)
