The new house before it got moved over. I took a couple when it got moved but hubby was in them. He has told me if I post them I am in biggggg kaakaa. Seeing as I don't like kaakaa I am not posting them. :o
Second picture shows the back section with the crates. When all the crates are in there they will line the back wall. If I have a newbie or sickie who doesn't need separated from the rest I can put the kitty right in one of the crates. You can also see the lofts at the top on both sides. One is lined with a fur coat that has been cut up. The other side has a blankie.
Last one shows the tube that goes from one loft to the other for them to play in and hide in or for a shortcut to the other loft.

Yikes! I didn't know that first picture was that big!!!! :eek:
These ones just show the shelves for resting, playing, whatever. Big change from the last one!!

OMG 14+ that is sooo awesome! Big Kudos to your Hubby!! I love it!

Now is that going in where the old one was in the fenced area? Are you keeping both?

I have a question? what do you put on the shelves? fabric material or do you just leave it? All you need now are some kittie curtains...

Will you just move them all in at once?

14+ maybe you could make a couple of those little houses with the hamper and styrofaom for some of them to sleep or play in? they make like that on a cold night!

I knew you would answer Winston. You saw the other one the poor kitties used. This one is twice that size! It already is in the same area as the other. Next we have to redo the fence with wooden posts and a proper top on it.
I put the shelves up! :thumbs up And did the carpeted walls and tube and put the floor down at the back. Hubby did do a fantastic job of the rest though. :cloud9: The old shed is getting a major redo next year but for now I am moving Kitty McCat to it and storing some hard food in it. Kitty has been in the crate for too long. This will give him some room to play.

The shelves have blankets on them (Thank you Chris and Chico! :thumbs up) I was going to put carpet on them but I did that in the last one and when it is muddy outside they tend to get really dirty. This way I can just take the blankets and wash them. No kittie curtains. They will just rip them down. :rolleyes:

I put half of them in this morning before I went to work. They were pretty freaked by the move. I will move the rest in the morning. I have the day off tomorrow so can spend some time with them in there.

Thanks clm! Hubby worked really hard on this one. It is insulated and very very sturdy!

Frenchy - Definitely not a big dog house!! A heck of a lot harder to move than that. We have some major landscaping to do in the spring. Lots of ruts put in the ground from all the machinery! :eek:

hazel- Got over the :frustrated: ;) KCK will like having more room I agree. Hope to get the rest of the kitties and then him moved tomorrow. :fingerscr

Diamondsmum - It's about twice the size of the fishing huts I've seen. They would be more the size of the old cat house.
Thanks gals for the comments. Hubby appreciates the acknowledgement of his hard work. :D

That's pretty amazing. I love the carpet on the walls! That's so great that you can have a nice little house for your gang. I can't wait to see a picture of all of them inside.

kr - I am waiting till tomorrow to move KCK over. I am washing the blankets from the little shed now so he has clean ones to start over. I will also move his little styrofoam bed over too so he has something familiar.

ancient - I am hoping to get pictures tomorrow. I want to give them today to settle. I just got them all moved over today. A couple were NOT happy to say the least. Poor Spazzy was still voicing his displeasure when I left. :rolleyes:

L4H - Too late. The word's out!

Brandykins - Thanks. If you don't mind sharing with 15 or more kitties com'mon over!! Oh yeah, and Frenchy and DM. Mmmm, gonna need a bigger house. :)

:laugh::laugh::laugh: If any more of you guys move in my kitties will need another new home!! Can't afford that right now!
But if you don't mind a slightly used, smelly (from my sprayers) smaller cathouse you can share with KMCK! :p I gotta give it a good cleaning with Nature's Miracle.

Consider him hugged!
I did post a couple of pics of the kitties enjoying their new space today. That long tube seems to be popular. They had tons of fun running through it.
And yes, the other shed will stay. Kitty McCat is going into it tomorrow. I will find a spot if any new ones show up. Please pray the winter is quiet.

I hope you don't get a harsh winter. At the very least they are protected from the snow and wind, so that's a huge help for them right there.:D

We had a really bad winter last year. A lot more snow than usual for this area. The kitties were pretty snug in their little home. This one is better insulated and better built than the other one. There are also lots more cuddle spots. Those little lofts will hold quite a few of them. I think they will be just fine in there. :thumbs up
I talked to hubby tonight about extending the lofts to make them larger on both sides. More play/sleeping spots. :D It would only cost the price of one more sheet of 5/8ths plywood. About 25 bucks. Everything else is already in place.

I'll have to get hubby to build a few more lofts on to the house I think! The more the merrier!! And your little one is sooo cute with all those curls! :cloud9:

Thanks Ms. Mona! Hubby really did do a great job on it! And I loved doing all the carpeting and tubes for them. Hoping to do a few more for some more play/hiding spots. Spoiled? Yep, maybe. :rolleyes: They deserve it!

Thanks Tundra.
The tubes are the ones that are used for forming cement in construction. They are sold at Home Depots, Lowes, Ronas, whatever you have up there. And they are cheap. It's pretty easy to glue an old remnant of carpet to it. They have had hours of fun with it. I noticed the other day the little :evil:s are ripping the inside a bit though so I may have to get another one. But not for a while.

:cloud9:Thanks rainbow. They really seem to love it! They play for hours and love sitting in the windows looking out. When I go in to feed them and clean they really don't even seem to want to try to get out.
