KMK's new house

My DH has been busy building a safe area for KMK so he could get out of the small shed. It is inside the sanctuary with the other kitties but he is completely enclosed. This way there is no fights and he gets to be outside. I think it's marvelous! It is 8 feet by 6 feet. Lots of room for him to be happy.
The end piece that is closed in holds his bed, a spare blanket for him to lie on, and his litter box. The top lifts up so I can clean his litter. I am hoping this leads to KMK eventually being able to be in with the other kitties. :fingerscr

Thanks ladies. :) He did another wonderful job, didn't he? I just tell him what I want done and he takes it from there. Have already told him I would love to have another one just like that one built for "emergencies." :rolleyes:
I went over to check to see how things are going a while ago. KMK came out of his little bed area stretching, saw all the kitties gathered around me, and started growling. Loudly!! :laughing: I am sure once he gets used to seeing them he will get better. At least I hope so. :fingerscr

What a great half-way kitty house! :D KMK already looks intrigued by Wide World. Soon enough he'll be on first-name basis with the rest of the crew and become part of the gang :goodvibes: Have any of the other kitties gone over to check him out, yet?

He sure is a handsome boy! :cloud9:

Don't think he's quite ready to give up his day job yet AG!

I'll be here. Make sure it's when the sun is still shining so you can see everything. I think even your hubby would be impressed. :thumbs up

:laughing: I think his half way house may be a long term house for him. He wasn't too impressed with the other kitties getting close to "his" house. MiniMo tried coming over to be petted a few times when I was talking to KMK. He has a very nasty growl. :eek:

I told hubby what everyone has been saying. He says he does it because I get pleasure out of it. It isn't because of the kitties. Nope, it's not!! :rolleyes:

:laughing: But it's only just the first few days--you wait...he'll be schmoozing with the rest of them by the end of summer! :cat:

So hubby says he's doing it because it give you pleasure? :cloud9: That's one nice guy! :highfive:

I really hope he will be ready to join the rest of them eventually. Although his little bed would be very snug for him in the winter it would be better for him to be cuddled with the rest. Or if not cuddled at least in the same space sharing heat.
Yep, that's what hubby says. He is pretty wonderful. :lovestruck:

omg that is so cute and thoughtful !!! I wish I could build one for my guys so they could spend some time outside .... can I hire you and hubby ? :D

oh off topic here 14+ .... been meaning to tell you ... my bro and SIL came over last week. It had been a long time since they came by. At one point I saw my SIL in the living room , crying :cry: I asked her what was wrong and she couldn't speak , she just pointed to something so I went to look and it was the portrait you did of Sam. It was your poem that made her cry , she loved it , she was overwhelmed :)

Aww thank you Frenchy. :grouphug: That means a lot. I truly do believe Sam is still there watching over you.
As for hiring us......... I'll get right on it. :thumbs up Maybe hubby could do up a plan for you and you can get that friend that was supposed to help with your pool to come help you make it. The whole thing cost about $200. Not too bad.

Another great job done by Mr. 14+ :grouphug: :thumbs up. KMK may feel a little left out of play time after watching the other kitties for a while. Maybe even feel they really aren't a threat and want to play too :pray:

Well, KMK is not impressed this morning. I went out to feed everyone. He came out of his sleeping area and immediately started growling. When I went in to feed him he wouldn't come close for a pet at all. He jumped on top of the little table thingy I put in and I sat beside him. He just growled and hissed at me. :sad:
I suspect that in a few days he will start settling. :fingerscr
Thanks for the wonderful comments. Hubby is embarrassed.

Not surprising he was hissing & growling, he's been stressed with the move to the new house & seeing the other kitties so close. Once he gets used to the new surroundings & being able to be "outside" and seeing the others can't hurt him, he will settle. :grouphug:

kr visited for a while last night. :) We went over to see the kitties. Went into KMK's house for a few minutes. He jumped up on a little ledge in there and actually let me pet him for a little bit.
Today he wasn't too bad. He let me pet him, was purring for a while. He still won't sit on my knee like he had been doing but I am sure in a couple of more days he will be. I did get him playing with a toy with me for a few minutes. That's a good sign.
It's kinda cute how he growls when the other kitties get too close. Mini can actually come up pretty close and he just watches her. Maybe it's a kindred spirit thing. She's the one that was taken off the road last year so she doesn't quite fit in with the others either.

Maybe he and Mini will be buddies.:D

I think he will settle in quite nicely. Maybe he will become best buds with Mini :pray:. It is interesting how kitties can read body language and I think they see things that we don't notice.

Oh My... I missed this thread!

Your hubs did a fabulous job...AGAIN!! Give him another hug from me! :) That is so kewl! You are one lucky gal to have a sweetie like hubs that is for sure! Does he have a brother? :laughing:

Did u go to see the other kitties before u saw KMK? If u did, maybe he smelt the other kitties on u and that's why he was growling?

Those kitties are sure blessed to have u and hubs in their lives!
