Monday home improvements

Every summer Äiti starts to think about how to make things for us and improve our environment. Some projects have failed, like home made hammocks. Some have been excellent - most notably that others have built like the catio and the stair shelves. But this time she may actually be onto a winner, and she's done it herself. 
We love the 'bowls ' on our cat trees and usually there is a lot of competition for who gets the highest one. She had the idea that we should have more but they need to be strong, and with washable fabric. And then she thought of a basketball hoop! And now, we would like to present to you, our latest cat bowl/nest/thing! Tested by Jaava-ninja.
It passes her weight test.
 But what about Mirsku ?
Yes! Success, and even with an extra ninja paw, it has not broken. Is it possible Äiti may actually have got it right?
 Now in this position we'd expect a loud ripping noise, but it was not to be!
It has survived the Paksu-poika stress procedure.
Now, we want more of these. And our buddy Carolyn-täti in England came up with the most excellent name: The Stran-Dunk!  We had a right old giggle about that. We now want, of course, one each.

Amazing - your human has come up with an idea that looks positively pawsome!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Brilliant idea! We're guessing, from the Lounge's comment, that we'll soon see some in their catio!

What an awesome idea! Brilliant job, Aiti! There is so much you could do with the hoops. You could use child size or adult regulation size, you could pull the fabric tight like a platform or make it deep like a pouch. Oh, Your Aiti is a genius! We need to find a place to hang one.
