Mancat Monday

Miles:
Hi kitties!

Mom has been doing some maintenance to our boxfort
She made some additions and repaired some parts, that we have trampled; she made them a little more sturdy
so, today I am going to show you some details of our mancat boxfort.


It comes in two sections...

mom made it that way so she can carry it around the house.
She never does that though, but if she had to....


the front and back go together perfectly, and mom made a bloo mark with a pencil to show where to line up the front and back boxes so the rooms in our basement are easy to move around in.

the back half is lighter...
mostly because there is no wood or heavy stuff attached

no that is not a poopie in the middle
it is that longlost mouse!
Mom says if you want to get your servant to make you a boxfort, they should get clean boxes from a moving supplies place.
Our mom is always making stuff.

Everything is glued together with a very hot glue gun.

When she is doing that, daddy has to snoopervise us, -- or mom does it when we are konked out (after completing many hours monitoring the status around our huge domain here, which is exhausting!!)

mom also found a piece of board in our peeple dungeon/basement that used to belong to one of the girl beans' high school locker shelves.

It sturdied up our front second floor tunnel, which was getting a bit saggy from our heavy mancat trampling. Here you can see we also have plenty of closet space!

Right now, Pierro is in his office, well, one of his offices... :-p

Pierro:
Greetings Kitties!

Welcome to our box fort. Miles and I work and play in this a lot.
We especially like to play in it when it is dark in the room and mom and dad are trying to watch some BBC movie from Netflix.

On the side of my office here, I have a port hole
This round thing mom got from her new blender packaging....
she killed her olde blender.
I can stick my head in it -- um, if I want


Miles: this is my special office.

Oh yes, Pierro and I share offices many times.
Mom just put this new penthouse cover on.
this used to be open, but I like the coziness of this tunnel cover.

I hope you enjoyed the boxfort tour.
Happy Monday. We hope you have bronkie sunshine

Pierro:

I would like say that Miles and I are bonking and purring
for Mickey and his family today. Mickey is feeling sick.
He is the best mancat and we love him so much

Here he is relaxing.
He is the epitome of gallantry and a role model for all mancats!

Great tranquility of heart
is his

who cares for neither praise
nor blame.

Ha..Ha..Ha..I'm sorry I can't stop laughing when you stick your head in the port hole, Pierro !

Before we saw your head, me and my mom just wonder what's that hole for..and when we saw you, we just cracked up : )

Your mom is very complicate person from what I saw how she made mancat boxfort but it seems work well for you guys ! Is she an engineer ?

That Mancat Boxfort is totally awesome. It really is. I wondered how your mommy made it. It was fun learning how! Your offices are just perfect for all of the business that you two have accomplish everyday.

Mickey is in my heart and on my mind. Mommy got very leaky eyes yesterday seeing him on his heaty pad. Me and Mommy want him to rally and feel much better. We're praying for him.

Oh Pierro...we see you are 'Head Honcho' at the CatFort, hahameow! We just loved the tour and are whining a little that we don't have one. Right now, we are just hoping for our basement to be opened up for our birdnsquirrel viewing pleasure, soon!

Hannah and Lucy said...

Your mom is awesome - we wish our mum was an engineer too and could make us a box fort or a play ground. What's that mum - oh dear she says our home is our playground looking at all the toys on the floor -oops!!
We have already been to leave a message for dear Mickey and one for Misses Peach.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

that is the bestest box for EFUR

Kea said...

That fort is the best fort in the entire kitty universe. Seriously. Sadly, our mom lacks construction skills.

Did you know Nicki eats cardboard? Okay, maybe not "eats," but he has this thing where he *has* to chew and shred any cardboard around! We wonder how long it would take to eat yours. MOL!

Really neat renovation guys! The naked kidz are jealous!

Egypt & The Musketeers said...

That's a very nice boxfort. We may need one of our own.

We have a hideaway instead. It has carpet, lots of warm bedding, and has a double layer flap which gives us privacy while we sleep in there.

Brian said...

That fort is way cool! I knew there was a use for those purrfectly good boxes my Dad keeps throwing out!

Catsparella said...

What an amazing mancat boxfort!! I'm very impressed!

Your box fort is the best! You have so many different parts to get in. Your mum is very clever to make it.

Hey Pierro!!!! Hey Miles !!!!
We are very impressed with that boxfort! All we have is a big box the new water heater came in.
We think Mom has a way to go.

Thank you for the purrs for Mickey. He is still snoozing and gets up for very short periods. Mom still has to feed him. We are blessed for every day we have him :)
