Rocky finally got his own little house,bought it today at Costco,dirt-cheap at $19 and he loves it!
They each have their spot in the daytime,at night they have a big King Size bed to share with mom and dad:lovestruck:

Chico I saw those too! I was tempted! But my guys never use anything I bring home for them! One of my friends gave me this HUGE cat tower..It must have been expensive! Anyway it was so heavy and soo big I could not find anywhere to put it! So I ended up donating it to the Animal Welfare Association here in Hamilton! Apparently all the fosters love it! I just wish mine did! They never really had any interest! They would rather chase each other I guess!


Oh by the way Vinnie is handsome! What a beautiful smoochy face!

Thank's Winston,Vinnie is an angel,Rocky might not agree though:laughing:
My cats seem to like their own safe space for a daytime nap and love to crawl in to anything,maybe out of fear of beeing attacked:confused:
The bottom part of Chicos bed,could house another cat,but Rocky and Vinnie rather keep their distance from Chico,the Boss!

I saw that little house too. I might go back and get it since it's getting glowing reviews here.

They look very contented. :D

Chico, I love Vinnie's eyes. Every time you post a picture of him, I spend most of my time just gazing into them. I've never met a cat with eyes like his. :cloud9:

Greatfull cats, they like their beds ! I got a bed for Monsieur le chat and a small condo and he's boycotting them :mad: Did you put herbs on it for them to go on their beds ? (I have a blank right now, pot for cats...)

Ohhh, I like Vinnie's house!!! It looks a little bit like one we bought YY awhile ago tho we called it a tent.(not at Costco and Beau has kind of taken it over since YY likes her "African one better, lol - the better to study genealogy, lol)
I am including it just so you can see if it looks similar?????

My kitties have some tents and beds and stuff and a few "treehouses" (really just cat trees for them to play on) but I really like the basket one. I don't belong to Costco but my parents do. <g> And $19, we could buy three more!

I love photos of kitties peek-a-booing out of their houses!
Looking at Rocky through the wicker door reminds me of when T'Grr :rip: chewed through the wicker lid on my tall basket in the kitchen where I hid the garbage. I remember how funny it was when he fell through and I looked through the hole and saw him in the garbage bag. Rocky looks content, not surprised as T'Grr was. Your gang are always so beautiful and cared for looking. So loved!

Thank's everyone,later at night,as soon as Rocky vacated his house,Vinnie claimed it:laughing: but not for long..
They are just like little kids,"my toy,my toy":laughing:
They never got in to chewing or scratching the wicker,I've got a thing for wicker and they leave it alone.
We've had Chico's 2-story bed for a long time and NOBODY sleeps on it but Chico:cat:
His was also from Costco a few years back,also cheap,where IKEA sells something comparable for $79:eek:

Those eyes are hypnotizing. How do you get anything done Chico? I'd be kissing and loving on him ALL day! :goodvibes:

www.costco.com

Winston,we too have the ex.membership,it already payed for itself since we got a $250 rebate-check in January.

I think the costco.ca site sucks. The selection is lousy and the prices there are not a good deal at all IMO. I think they inflate them so they can offer "free shipping". :rolleyes:

Chico, if you don't mind my asking - how does that work re Costco? How d you obtain a rebate? My folks belong and that helps but I am wondering if we should join? They have a lot of good stuff there - and btw, the cost of their meds is excellent so my patients who have scripts filled there tell me. OTC stuff too. For ex, ASA and codeine which is $6.99 plus tax at WalMart and $8 plus at Shopper's (generic - i is $15.99 or $19.99 for the Frosst 222's) - is only $3.99 and that is one med where the generic is just as good. The difference is the polymer - there is not much around the medication so it dissolves quickly and obviously, you would want acetaminophen and codeine for children if they require that much pain medication - and cancer patients. alas, do - sometimes much more, sigh!!

Anyway - I am curious about the rebate?? Email me if you feel you need to.

It's ok CK,we pay $100/yr for an executive member-ship and we get 2% rebate,it does not sound like much,but if you spend a lot of money there it adds up and we do,although there is only 2 of us.
As I mentioned we got $250 rebate..
There are things at Costco that are not cheap,but it's usually good quality and brandnames that would cost a lot more anywhere else.
I've never used their pharmacy,but buy my Calcium,vitamin D etc...there and it's much cheaper than anywhere else.
I don't know if prescription meds are included in this,but it is certainly worth it do find out.

I buy glucosamine for the dogs there, food and doggy beds...Costco is great.
