One Fast Cat Has Entered The Building

The Bengals are very racy, to put it mildly, so having a way to let them run without leaving the compound and be exposed to predators would be a good thing. We had long considered getting a cat exercise wheel, but they were on the expensive side.

One day, Joy happened upon a Kickstarter that had a new design not requiring a strong framework to hold the center live bearing upon which the wheel rotates...

Joy has been working for the past few months creating an outdoor compound in which our kids can play. They used to run free but there have been injuries and some have gone missing.

We've not been getting any signal from Blinky's tracking radio since she didn't come home and we've taken to widening the search area every day by truck, using the Radio Direction Finder to see if she is just out of range. Nothing. No idea what happened to her. She just vanished.

Hungry, Lonely, Scared • Part 4, Black Bart!

On the Counter

Progress with the new kitty! No longer is he growling when I come in and dish out some canned food. There are still a few daggers, and no contact, but I was pretty close to him and he didn't growl!
