Slightlly Better Pictures of Our New Fun Thing

Yesterday's teaser picture was awful! Would you believe that I lightened that up quite a bit?? It's our house.. Dark inside, sunny windows and if you can't get the flash to go off, everything is dark, especially if it's anywhere near a window.

There were a few right guesses! Yes, we got a new HUGE cat tree!

Ok, new to us.. It was at a garage sale. I've always wanted one of those big multi level cat trees but they can be SO expensive! So when Twin 2 called and said she saw one at a garage sale I made Greg leave right that minute and go see! I'm telling you, I don't think these people's cats used it much! The sisal rope is all intact! The only thing wrong with it is the lowest shelf is a little wobbly weak. But if a kitty fell off it, they'd only fall about a foot and a half.

Do my kitties like it? I'm telling you, it wasn't hardly in the door before they were on it! This was maybe two days after Cashmere and Glitter arrived, so they were not in the mix when the great inspection was going on. Star and Leo were very very interested though!

(I edited out my very cluttered table, wish I could do that for real not just in pictures!)

Star was the first one on the tree, her sniffer was working over time!
I have to inspect every inch of this new thing. I smell... other cats! Oh no! This better not have any surprises in it!

Leo was on the tree WITH STAR! Because he was too excited to wait for a turn! You can see the weak shelf under his butt, but it's still holding him up so it's probably strong enough. Fingers crossed!
Star: Almost to the top, no cats, just fun. Whew!
Leo: Hey, this looks like a great place to sharpen my claws! Better than my almost destroyed blue tree!

Look! Three kitties together! Glitter is sitting on the bottom part of Leo's little window tree that we put on the landing while trying to decide where to put the new one. One thing was obvious right away, it could not stay there! That thing is huge! You can hardly get to the landing and stairs past it!
Oh, and look at Glitter getting pets on her second day here from her new daddy!
Star: There's a new cat! Oh wait.. it's one of the ones that showed up a few days ago.. Can we trade her for this tree?
Leo: Interesting scents here..
Glitter: When you two are done, I get a turn, right?

Star vacated the tree, grumbling at everyone else. Leo continued his inspection.
Long cat is LONG! hee hee
Hey, look! A cave!

No pin up girlcats in it. Yet!

This thing just keeps going up and up, pawsome!

Tried taking the cardboard out of the top window to see if we could get better pictures... nope, still had to lighten them a lot, which makes them grainy. argh!
This is great for the upside down dangling head move!

Leo left, and Star got back on, all by herself this time. Just the way she likes it..
I can resume my inspection uninterrupted now.. I do NOT need assistance from barbarians or introoders!

I think I approve of this thing. We can keep it. Now about those other new 'things'....
Tomorrow, rearranging!
June is adopt a shelter cat month. Please consider helping out Winnie's Wish! Not only are they over full at the moment, but some little kittens just crossed their path in need of help! You know what that means.. Please go over and see them, and spread the word about the need for homes! (and maybe donations?)

Pawsome tree! We have one of those big trees and we love it so much that it wobbles quite a bit now too. MOL.

What a great tree and it looks like there's room for you all to go on at one time! Stand by with the camera.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Looks like it's going to be the most popular spot in the house!

Katie Isabella said...

OH! You four have hit the JACKPOT!!!!

Eastside Cats said...

Gosh, that's a popular tree! Love the floogy kitties all over it, and maybe it's a break-the-ice between the two sets of cats.

Random Felines said...

that new tree is AWESOME!!!

Rene said...

WOW, that is so cool--great find!! Perhaps you can get some Gorilla Glue and stabilize the wobbly lower shelf?


Fuzzy Tales said...

What an awesome find! Our human doesn't see cool things like that when she passes by yard sales. Hmmph.

Sparkle said...

That's practically a kitty jungle gym! How fun!

LP said...

Kitties! It's Christmas in June! That was one pawsome find and we know all four of you are going to love it so much! :)
