16' CCD cat door / litterbox

Hi,

My name is Helix, and I'm a cat.

I just wanted to share some pics of what I got my humans to do for my comfort in our 2004 16' CCD. They spent the better part of two weekends making replacement doors for the cabinet under the bed, choosing and installing carpet for my scratching pleasure, and painstakingly assembling it all.

While they worked, I of course did my part: I slept in the mornings and spent the afternoons following them around and complaining.

Personally, I wouldn't have gone with the white door, and my female Mom wishes that we'd covered the entire door with carpet instead of framing the smaller squares. But you simply can't expect perfection from humans.

My male Mom has repeately expressed amazement at how much time was wasted on a project that benefits only me. He apparently doesn't realize that he already spends about a third of his waking life catering to my whims.

Humans - they're really somewhat stupid. But fortunately they are trainable.

Later,
Helix

Dear Helix,

My name is Penny and I'm a sheperd mix. Me and my younger bother Charlie, a terrier mix are very happy for you and are excited to know how you overcame the typing issues....we still have to dictate to dad who does the typing for us.

Great setup

Dear Helix,

I wish my humans were as smart as yours. They just keep my litterbox in the shower until they need to use it. I'd much rather have my own space. Looks like you can hide there too, that's something I would really like.

Buddy

Nice idea

I'm sending this to a friend who just acquired a cat and intends to travel extensively with him. They have a Classic 31 and are currently planning to remove a drawer to accommodate the litter box.

In my Classic 28 with the pass-thru bath, there is plenty of room for a covered litter box in the bathroom. We just have to move it about 6" forward to use the shower and move it back again to get into the curb-side wardrobe.

By the way

We use a thick black rubber doormat from Wally World under the litter box. It prevents the box from migrating when underway and also does a good job of trapping any litter kicked out.

Silvertwinkie,

I'm insulted that your ...pardon the expression... dogs would think that I would lower myself to something as menial as ...pardon the expression... typing.

Nor would I expend the effort required for dictation.

I'm quite able to direct my humans' actions from the comfort of my own bed through the simple expedient of mind control.

Helix

You got a pretty good setup then Helix....your own pad in the Airstream and tools better than the Vulcan mind meld to communicate to Toasty and the rest of the world....I'll pass on your thoughts to Penny and Charlie this afternoon, after I get the universal translator working again.

Hello,

This is Toasty's Dad. I would like to apologize to Slivertwinkie for the ungentlemanly comments of my cat Helix, which have somehow found their way onto the Airstream Forums.

See what I mean? The fool doesn't even realize that I control him!

I'd also like to assure all that the cat door was entirely Linda's and my project, and was done solely for our convenience.

Yessss...... Let him think it was his idea.

We're getting ready for our first big trip and..

Watch this! Now I'll make him sit down and pet my belly for the next hour with a stupid look on his face.

Ooops, I've gotta go sit down for a few minutes,

Later,
Jon
