I bet you think the fireworks are for this weekend’s Fourth of July celebration. For sure this graphic works well for the holiday. But I actually have fireworks going off on the blog today for a different reason. Are you ready?
The Winnie’s Wish addition is COMPLETE.
The outside is finished.
The inside is finished.
There are still some things to be done before cats will move in. You might remember that each of the first two rooms in the cathouse has its own outside deck. The cats LOVE those decks. So of course the new room will have one for the inhabitants of that area. My husband and father are working on that now.
I have ordered (and it’s on its way) the cat door which will go into the west wall of the new room allowing access to the great outdoors via this deck.
And I have FOUR wonderful pieces of cat furniture.
I bought three of these myself. Here’s why. I’ve mentioned the bargain store we occasionally visit when we are in that area. You never know what will be there. The store takes returns and damaged items, etc. from other stores and warehouses. Sometimes there is nothing there of any interest. But when you do find something you want, it is always at a fantastic price. Well, I stuck back Christmas money and even birthday money to spend in this store. We’ve been there a handful of times since Christmas and on three different occasions, there was a great piece of cat furniture for an unbelievable price. Once these three pieces are put together, I will decide which will be in my house for my own kitties and which I will donate to the cathouse. But I mentioned FOUR. The pieces I purchased are great. But Winnie’s Wish received the QUEEN of cat furniture a while back from Mary W. (It's the BIG box in the picture above.) Remember this one?
I can’t wait to get this (and the others) built and to find the perfect spots for them. We are literally only days from The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.
Now take a look at what Mell had delivered to Winnie’s Wish. Mell is the person who sent the FIRST donation for the new cat house addition. In fact, she sent it before I even made the decision to try the GoFundMe Building Fundraiser. I have to say she is probably the reason I took the plunge. The note that came with her gift to Winnie’s Wish reads – Gotta get you all stocked up for the new cat room! Yay!
Mell – THANK YOU.
Finally – Mindy Slimmer sent me an email that said this: I wanted to get some housewarming gifts for the (Winnie’s Wish) kitties. I have five items up for sale on my blog that are pug-Christmas themed and hopefully I will sell them all and get you lots of needed items off of your wish-list. (So I need) traffic to my blog. I hope someone or a few someone's are wanting the items and realize the great deal these items are since they cost way more than they are selling for, but I want them to have good homes and raise money for a good cause...your cause...our cause...the homeless cat cause. How lovely, Mindy. I am sure willing to send folks to your blog. JUST CLICK HERE.
Mindy – THANK YOU.
See you next week. Have a great (and safe) Fourth of July weekend!
