The beginnings of a catio kit. With help from Cheetah. The box is still preferred over a catio. Lol

Just want to make sure that everyone knows the site is back up. I can’t tag everyone and I have already talked to a couple of people but Yay! The site is back. :clap2:

Building a catio. More to come later.

Lari Lari Just so you know, if you google your threads you may find some of your photos even if the site is not functioning. Maybe text too. Not sure. You can input the Catsite and then your ID or thread name. I know many of our things are there. Still, backing up everything is a good idea. ;)
I have all my pictures on my phone! It's the text and all the lovely replies I need backups of.

That catio looks great! I hope it brings Thrasher home.

OMG I haven't been on much lately then the site was down, and I see Thrasher missing!
:vibes::hugs::hugs::grouphug::grouphug::grouphug2::grouphug2: I'm so sorry and sending all the love and vibes and hope and messages to Thrasher and you I can.
And be safe!
I've had this happen and am right with you.

Well, hi everyone! I am so very glad to see everyone back. It is a bit like the Twilight Zone when things vanish. I am re purraising. Deja Vu. Lol Noticing some missing things but thanks to @Anne and Scott, the family reunion is on!
Bravo to them for bringing us all back again! Amazing considering all I heard and read.
I wish I was coming back with Thrasher. Not a sign of her. While we were down I used every moment to scour the swamp and stake out the area during feral cat hours. I’m still doing that at dawn, dusk and again in the wee hours. In between I have been building shelters, the catio kit and searching for materials to build more safe sanctuaries. It’s been a long hunt all the way around. I still have to do a bit of alterations to the catio kit but it is in place next to the cat room window in the hope that Thrasher will begin to investigate it if she is near.
I have a friend taking me in to the city tomorrow. Getting Thrashers photo spread around, I did that while searching for building materials too. Much to catch up on but I have a doc appointment too so we’ll catch up more tomorrow.
I hope everyone is well and please know how much I appreciate everyone here. Thank you for keeping Thrasher in your hearts.:grouphug2:The past few days are a great lesson for us all. Never give up on anything that counts. I’m very glad we are all reunited and back to helping the kitties of the world again.
Sending out positive vibes and prayers that Thrasher finally comes home. So good to see you back on the site and that the site is back up and running in the first place. Love the Catio you are putting together. I had plans years ago to turn our screen house into a Catio, but a family member had other ideas and my plans got nixed. The cats will love it. Can't wait to see pics of them in it enjoying the outdoors.

Have a good night. Will be on tomorrow.🙂

Candle is still lit for Thrasher. It never went out.

I would LOVE to have a catio, but my landlady would fall on the ground and drum her heels if I even mentioned it. When Boris Diamond Boris Diamond rescued me pre-Hurricane Florence, I actually stayed with his very kind next door neighbor, who has a large log home. My bedroom had a little bay window in it, and Hekitty LIVED in that bay! She'd LOVE a catio!

That looks like a great catio kit, Jcatbird Jcatbird and yes, with the excellent help you have, it's sure to be a big success! Looks like good construction and materials. Hope you find more needed materials.
*PRAYERS* and best thoughts for your doc appt.
And, of course, for Thrasher, continually!!! Turn tail for home, Thrasher!

That looks like a wonderful catio. I’m impressed you have the skills to put it together. Also good you had some furry help. I used to call my cat a “snooper-viser”.

Lari Lari I Definitely know what it means to have all the thread accessible. I hope you can copy everything off somehow. I would hate to lose everything here and on many other threads where my TCS family members have shared their lives with us. I often go back to read a “great day” again. I remember when you got the ring! Banner day and so many more since then. Precious days to you and to the rest of us.

I hope the catio works!

pearl99 pearl99 I had been missing you and wanted to be sure you knew the site was up in case you got the error message without knowing why. Very glad you are here. Thank you for all the vibes and wishes for Thrasher.

Whenallhellbreakslose Whenallhellbreakslose I had already turned my porch into a cat room and planned a catio but this became more urgent. The other kitties won’t get to go in it yet. I am leaving the catio door to outside open in case Thrasher sees it and wants to explore it first. I’ll give it some time and if I don’t see signs of her, the inside kitties will get to go inside it during the day for awhile to see if they can lure her back. Then I will close it off to inside kitties at night and open it back to the outside at night.

tabbytom tabbytom The down time was needed here. I am putting all my efforts into thinking up new ways to find Thrasher. I’m not finished thinking yet!;) One catio is great but maybe she isn’t at the back of the property. More plans in mind.
The pawverb is a very good one. Bonjure, Dolly and Purry agree that calm and loving a black cat is excellent advice!

C Cat Grrl Thank you for helping us to hope Thrasher back home!
The catio isn’t terribly complicated to assemble. It’s basically just building wood frame boxes. Lol Let’s see if the cats approve. I have snooper visors! They can be criticats too!

dustydiamond1 dustydiamond1 Thanks about the catio. I will visit the thread to see how Todd and the kitties are doing. He’s doing such great work and I wondered about the latest while TCS was down.
That is the prettiest bug! I can’t show it to Froggie though. He might try to kiss it and I don’t want frog tongue marks on my phone screen.:lol:

BellaGooch BellaGooch Thank you! I hope the catio idea works! Paws crossed.

N NY cat man Thank you for saying that about my abilities. I was challenged by a few things and have much more ahead. I think you may smile when you see my ideas. I’m thinking a bit outside the box. Lumber is a bit scarce in the sizes I needed but I looked up and saw a possible solution. Fingers crossed in that too?
I have been so focused on Thrasher that I haven’t posted as much about the rest of the Clowder but I was getting ready to post some Easter party shots when the site went down. I will start working my way through as I split my time between Clowder, building and hunting Thrasher. I need to be triplets about now! Lol Wanda Heart and Primts are doing fine. All the kitties are a bit confused at me being outside so much along with some very strange noises in the house (saw and drill) but they are fine. Photos soon. Promise.

Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 Thank you for keeping that candle lit. I really, really need it to lead my baby home.
Tell Hekitty that she must come to enjoy the catio!

rubysmama rubysmama Thank you! I could not work today. Doc appointment and it was raining too. I have more to do but I kind of enjoy building things for the kitties. If the cats don’t like it, Froggie will! Lol

tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 Thank you about the doc appointment. Sent for an IV but the poor girl had trouble getting a vein and felt awful about it. Lol I talked to her to let her know she was doing great and that I was okay. Of course, I liked her and I discovered she has a kitty! I hope she is here with us soon! I invited her to join us on TCS. It seems like every time I make a new friend they turn out to be a cat lover! About the time we started talking about cats, she got my vein! Yay! Cats are such good luck!

A start on some more smile posts?
I began our Eater with our newest cat friend, Pawpurr. Her very first Easter.

Pawpurr! Around here we love to share Eater. Do you know about the Rasyer bunny? The bunny brings treats to kitties. Things like pretty eggs.

So..... why do I want a bunny egg?

I’ve never seen a bunny egg before.

Do you expect me to sit on it until it hatches?

How long will that take?

Wait a minute!

It smells shrimpy!

Bunnies don’t smell like shrimp treats.
8A99F0DB-1AB3-46A4-852F-F83766702AF1.jpeg

It opened?!?!?!?

Would you look at that!?!?!?
C754AB9F-049A-4D27-860D-34DBB8C0A44E.jpeg

That’s not bunny stuff!
77913DF8-EFAC-4994-9A9A-1CDF46033289.jpeg

It is treats. Catnip too!
95B12154-094C-42D1-8FB9-B069A33442A1.jpeg

A furry critter too? Is it a white bunny?
D49C21C6-60D8-4AFC-A588-EED7BC62B636.jpeg

It has a very long tail for a bunny.

Whatever it is, I like it!
3E29C7B9-4DFE-41E6-8923-6F1CD4A4E654.jpeg

I have a new friend!

What should I call you? The hooman said something about Easter bunny.
8675F342-C531-4CEE-9F0E-F7CCBF68DA20.jpeg

I haven’t seen you hop though.
D5B5276B-AEFB-4388-A8CE-17FB64CBF70D.jpeg

Seriously?
846E55A3-215A-40BF-81C5-BB618682AE36.jpeg

The hooman wants me to think you hopped onto my back like a bunny.
E0BB3113-843B-48F0-B8FC-B786FD552C68.jpeg

It may be my first Easter but I’m a smart cat. I smell a rat!
FC991EDB-6F73-4CD5-9AC8-9476F9B4E902.jpeg

I shall call you Easter mouse!
