Check out my cathouse

By Penny Stine

This photo has nothing to do with gardening, but I took it anyway and wanted to post it because my garden is still buried under snow and I can only write about my living room garden so many times.

This is my disgruntled cat, who looks quite content in her cathouse on a sunny afternoon.
The cat earned a ticket out of the house and into the garage when she started marking various places in the house. She earned a ticket out of the garage when she began peeing all over the floor and leaving presents in odd places.
I didn't feel bad all summer and into the fall, but as it got colder I felt guilty about leaving her outside. Then I saw a youtube video where a guy made a cathouse out of a cooler.
Brilliant!
There is a towel, an old, polar fleece vest and a pillowcase that holds a giant rock that I heat every night in the oven and then put in the insulated cathouse to add a little extra warmth.
The cat actually seems healthier this year than she was last year when she stayed in the cold, non-sunny garage all winter and rarely moved.
Now I just hope PETA doesn't see this or I'll have naked people throwing fake blood at me when I try to park in my garage.
