Cat Containers

10 Sep

Bongo caught lying in his kennelOkay, I’ve got to tell you what’s been going on at my house while I’ve been absent from my blog.

There seems to be a great jealousy of my dog jail kennel from the cats.

I guess they wish they had one as nice as mine.

But I’m guarding it and I might need to put a sign up that says “No Cats Allowed!”

So the cats have had to settle for second best.



Scratchy had to go to the vet the other day so his cat jail was sitting out.

And he’s claiming it – or guarding it – or something.

Who would want your silly old cat cage anyway Scratchy?

It’s too little to be any good.


Now Gizmo, not to be left out, had to get creative.

He made his own little cubby.

Not as good as mine…

But I have to admit that Gizmo is innovative.

Or is that in na box?

    Snorticles too funny my friend! Houdini’s jail is small. I couldn’t even get my hoof in there – snorts. It’s like the four bears in this house. My jail is big; Mouse Girls is slightly smaller; Hemi slightly smaller and Houdini minuscule. XOXO – Bacon

    How could they not be jealous of such a beautiful boudoir you have, Bongo?! I hope Scratchy is okay. You are right about Gizmo being innovative! 😉

      Marina, for an old cat Scratchy’s doing alright. He turned 16 this summer.

    Your jail is the BEST – paws down! But I must say that shredded cardboard affair is pretty original.

    Love and licks,

    Gizmo is in na box, Bongo. I’m sure about that. And Scratchy’s box will fit always, it’s never to big or to small for us cats, BUT your jail is the best and they both know it 😉 Pawkisses 🙂

      Little Binky, I’m sure the cats are totally jealous of my jail. Gizmo used to get in it sometimes but I think he’s afraid I’ll lock him up.

      Fredrieka, I would love to kick the cats out of the house. But they have nasty claws and they’re not afraid to use them.

        The cats here won’t run. I think there’s something wrong with them.

      Lily & Edward, Gizmo is definitely a true decorator.

    Sweet Bongo we needed a laugh and you sure gave us one. We couldn’t keep from laughing at loud when we got to Gizmo and his cubby. Now that is one of kind we are quite sure. Hugs and nose kisses

      Thanks Mumsy and Chancy. Gizmo is always good for a few laughs. He’s quite the character. Hugs and nose kisses back to you.

      Marty, I’ll pass the word to Gizmo. He’s always good for a laugh.

      Patrecia, the cats won’t go in my dog jail anymore because they’re afraid I’ll lock them in.

    Gizmo is so funny! He is talented to make us laugh! He is also very artistic cat! Oh no….Scratchy…is he all right? I hope nothing is wrong with him….Of course your dog jail is the best, Bongo! Looks so comfortable!

      Kevin, Scratchy is okay – at least for an old cat. He turned 16 this summer. He has a few issues but he’s still hanging in there. That Gizmo though – he’s a character. I’ve got to figure out how to get him back though. Sometimes when I come in from the yard he sits on the arm of the futon next to the door and bats at me.

    Hmmmm, Gizmo’s work is real Cat(h)Art(ic)!

      September 12, 2014 at 10:26 am

      Kolytyi, Gizmo is definitely creative while he’s working everything out.

    Oh that Scratchy is one to be feared for sure! He doesn’t even run and hide when the cat box comes out. Military operations are put into place when George and Fergus have to go in their cat carriers… all exits must be sealed and doors to rooms which have furniture that can be used as a hideout are also closed. Wow. We’re impressed by Scratchy!

    • Bongo

      Flo, I think Scratchy likes to go to the vet so he can be mean to them. They have even marked his chart so they know to watch out for his bites.
