The Cat Hotel

Imagine walking in a door, and the first thing you smell is cat litter and salmon flavored cat treats.  Not very delightful, is it?  Well, that was the way our house was just a few hours ago.  Litter box on the right, and food on the left.  So today we decided to solve that problem.  First, we bought a secretary desk from Salvation Army.

We decided to keep the litter box and food in the desk - not right next to the door, but on the landing on the top floor.  To keep a litter box in the desk, there would have to be some sort of hole for the cats to get in.  So that's what my dad and I worked on today.  We put on our painting clothes, (even though we weren't painting...) and cut a little hole on the side of the desk where the litter box would be laying inside.

Here's the hole.

And now our construction job was complete!  Using the wood that came from the hole we cut out, we made a plaque.

On the other side of the plaque we made a little sign for when the cats are busy eating.

And here are the Grand Opening pictures of the Cat Hotel.

And it's cut!

Now, I'll give you a tour of our Cat Hotel.
The Dining Hall.
The Bathroom.
The Rooftop/Bedroom.
The Kitchen.
And here are some pictures of our satisfied customers.

Sammy and Theodora actually have to eat on two separate levels because when they aren't, they will push each other's bowls off the edge so they can have the whole area to themselves.

Nom, nom, nom.

  1. This is a great idea!! And your satisfied customers look VERY satisfied.

  2. What an incredibly creative solution. Your customers look Very satisfied.

  3. Is it weird that I'm eagerly waiting for the big moment when the cats catch on and start pooping in our creation?

  4. I love it. I have to do something like that. :)
