Cat update for week ending December 14

132 pictures filtered down to 29 this week.

The cats have continued to enjoy the new platform and cabins. Ironically, especially Pumpkin:


He’s been spending more time in the cabins than in the cat house. Here he is having a drink:


Paladout has also been showing up most days, and checked out the cabins, though hasn’t been in one:


The other cats have been enjoying them too. Here’s Pommie:


Poppy and Pumpkin are happy to be neighbors, if Poppy arrives first:

A rapid egress from the feeder when Pumpkin comes out, due to the food dispensing:

That contentment didn’t last, though; a few minutes later, Pumpkin arrived, and was greeted (warned off) by Porcini:

Then Poppy had a turn greeting Pumpkin:

Pumpkin really wanted to hang out, though:

He’s disappointed that both cabins are occupied:

After a couple of minutes, he gave up and went elsewhere, so Poppy and Porcini could relax again:

A bit later, after they left, Pumpkin had his chance, discovered by a returning Poppy:

Four cats; can you see them all?

With Pumpkin hanging out at the cabins so much, the other cats can brave the house; here’s Bella spending the night:

A bit of a queue while waiting for Paladout to get out:

Paladout was feeling trapped, and Poppy got tired of waiting:

Again I startled Pumpkin when I approached the bird box; here’s a nice photo of him:


I did try talking to him, but he acted like a feral cat. He may be feral or stray, but doesn’t seem to be comfortable around humans. I will keep trying.

Paladout feeling trapped, Pumpkin peeking, and Bella wanting to get to the food:

I have a plan to add a back door (emergency exit) to the feeder, going through the wall above the food dish.  With this happening a couple of times this week, I have made it more of a priority (probably after Christmas; won’t have time before that).

Let’s finish with a sleepy Pumpkin at the cabins:
