UP A TREE . . . LITERALLY

It was bound to happen. 
If you have a tree IN your house and you own a cat, it is inevitable.


When we built our new house I wanted a remembrance of the cedar trees in our old yard, the house where I grew up, so I convinced my hubby to make a corner molding out of one of them, and he did. 


I picked just the right one that had an overhanging branch to the left.


The plan was to eventually replace all the leaves with preserved green ones from the cedars on our land here, but I haven't done that yet. The leaves have turned orangey brown and are quite crispy but they look fine for now. It's on the list though.
We hung a vacant wasp nest on the branch last year.  You can see it on the corner of the doorway.
So now those kittens have discovered a natural spot for their climbing, scratching and perching. Those very lucky kitties!




                                                           happy day!

Now that's a whole new version of a cat post. Very wonderful. If I was a cat I would head right for that spot too. It's just perfect.
