We finally have cats on the farm...in the barn. l worked on the cat areas this week and though there are still things I'd like to do and need to do, it's fit for kitties now. The windows were installed, the walls were painted, and today we bought carpet remnants for the floor in each room - there are two. I didn't want wall-to-wall floor covering and it's a good thing. The "remnants" were large and heavy as it was. We used Glenn's pickup truck to haul them from the store and he singlehandedly transferred them to the cat areas of the barn. What a difference a little carpeting makes. The rooms seem nicer and cozier. The heaters are working and both areas are beginning to feel warmer. I have some decorating plans for the rooms and Glenn has some ideas about building shelves and ramps on which the cats can climb and play. So...we have more to do out there, but for now, I'm happy to have some of my furry ones here. Baxter, Bailey, Elliot, and Rusty are snug as bugs in their new rooms and seem to be adjusting to their new home. It took a little time for Bailey and Rusty to decide it was safe to come out of the cat carriers, but Baxter and Elliot seemed anxious to explore their surroundings. Tomorrow I'll bring over the rest of the clan. It's a good way to start the new year.
