Corrections to the pen

Here is the so called sealant that was used in the cat pen, after a month it is still tacky and wet.
The brown stuff is the wood dust from when the electrician drilled

I also left the heater on all weekend when that was installed to try and dry it out! But no such luck. So Hubby has removed it all and replaced it with proper sealant which is drying as it should, tomorrow he is laying the flooring, after we figure where the leak is coming from.
Yes we have a leak from the floor/bottom sneeze barrier!
I tell you what this company who made this pen should be on Rogue Traders!!

Here we have Tango inspecting the workmanship that hubby is doing. 

 Just a few last few checks on the electrics
 Passing on his thoughts on to Lily

 Who then decides she has to finally enter and inspect it herself!
I have had a phone call from the Branch manager to tell me the supplies will be delivered next week. Which is good news.

Also some good news my sister who works at the Adoption centre is adopting another cat this weekend a small black female, who will be a companion for Milo, her persian cat. Her first Cat Pykelet was poorly and the vet felt it was kinder to not wake him after they examined him to find he had fluid on his lungs, He was 12 years old(approx). I will look for photos to share with you soon!

While we wait ...

I will introduce you to my own Puddy cats.

Top left is Tango(Ginger Tabby) we adopted him November 2009 from the Derby Adoption Centre, also top right is Bella( Black) who we adopted at the same time, they were not together but there estimated ages were 5/6months old at the time. We have had them 2 year, 2 months now.

Bottom of the photo is Lily, we adopted her November 2010 from the Derby Adoption centre. She was found at six weeks old at a JCB site and handed in, she was so tiny and a little feisty madam, she still is, but not so tiny.

This is a rare occasion when they are in the same room, never mind so close on the same bed!!
I am sure that I will share with you some more photo's and titbits about my little furbabies as I continue this blog!

Sad Face!!

When posting I always try and remain positive, but I suppose this wouldn't be an honest blog about being(or trying to be) a Cat Fosterer if you didn't hear about the upsets as well.
So far the pen is up, the lighting and heating is in, but no cats yet!
Why?
Well, because the company that supplied and put up the pen are totally useless, firstly they are ignoring the RDA's emails about repairing the damage they did to the garage, and Secondly I have no idea what it is, except the so called 'sealant' is still wet and tacky and comes up easily. So I have to remove all traces of it and my hubby is going to put proper sealant down, and put the flooring down!!
So looks like I will not be getting a Cat to look after this year !!

Yay we have heat and light!

As I said in my last post, we now have heat and light in the Cat pen.
Yes that is Tango giving it his seal of approval.


Luckily I haven't cleaned it yet as the flooring needs to go down at the weekend

This is inside the sleeping area, see the panel heater on the wall, there is one on the opposite wall.


Lily is not daft enough to enter the large cat trap!!! LOL
So what is next, well it needs to be checked by CATS P and then supplies delivered and then a resident!!
