Wednesday Catio Work

At the weekend, in the damp and drear, Äiti started to sort the catio for its summer configuration. The tarps were pulled back and shelving removed. Jura inspected the state of weathering.
I was the first to inspect the assembled unit, and to point out there was no access hole to the top shelf - Äiti had to reorder them. 
There's a barbecue under this cover, but ut'll take a few sunny days before that gets used.
Aila-sisko goes to find out if anything new is behind the Rock of Norway.
And now Jaava and Sampo inspect the skyway shelves - but these have not yet been put in place as Äiti isn't so sure about whether she'll put them up or not as we didn't use it that much last year.
And in the garden there's a sign that finally spring is here - a couple of crocuses and some real greenery.
And there are birds out there too - we're watching! Pikku prinssi Sampo is fast learning the delights of ornithology. So far we have a magpie nesting in a nearby tree, and pikku varpunen in the snack dispenser at the bottom of the garden. Oh yes, summer looks as though it holds great promise.

Tell Äiti to put up the skyway! With Sampo around, who knows how things will shake out in the catio?

Angel Prancer Pie said...

We agree with Sparkle! The catio will probably be a rockin and rollin this summer. MOL!

Pee Ess - already Sampo shows great form from behind!

That is quite a work crew you have there!

We have a BBQ as well but never actually used it last year. Paws crossed things will be different this year.

We agree with Sparkle too!

Your catio is so awesome. We love our tiny garden, true, but we don't have platforms and skyways to climb up on!

Wow! Your Aiti is making sure you will have a delightful summer. We join in saying put up the skyway, if it's not too difficult. You know how something is ignored for the longest time and suddenly it becomes wildly popular? We also agree with Prancer Pie. Sampo is adorable any way you look at him.

It looks like there are a lot of helpers to get the catio ready.
