Poor Fluffy….. I recently had my hubby build a blockade from preventing him from accessing his favorite hiding spot: an open-hole access panel for the motor to our bathtub. Prior to building this permanent blockade we had tried everything to keep Fluffy from going in there— boxes (which Fluff just batted out of the way), tin foil (which Fluff punched a hole through despite his aversion to the feel), a cardboard piece held in place by duct tape (Fluff peeled this off)— to no avail! Even the first time Todd tried to build the permanent blockade Fluff figured out a way through it— he managed to take the hinges off with his paws!!!
Simply told, I don’t want Fluff in the wall for safety reasons first. If something were to happen to him when he was under the bathtub and I couldn’t reach him I would probably react by sawing a hole through the bathroom wall! And nobody wants to see me with power tools 🙂 So best to just keep the cat out of the wall to begin with.
We think Todd’s handiwork should do the job this time. He built this access door panel by using scrap wood that we had lying around our basement— and reinforced the screws this time so they are Fluffer proof!
There is an unexpected perk to walling-up Fluff’s hiding spot— he can’t escape from me when it comes time for cat hat picture time!! Oh poor Fluff, first he lost his hiding spot, and now this…..
Don’t worry— Fluff was rewarded handsomely for his modeling duties! The Easter eggs of this cat hat actually can be used to store cat treats! I call it the Easter Egg Hunt Cat fascinator and it’s the newest in my collection of cat hats in the Notso Kitty Shop! Stop on over soon to check out the latest kitty creations.
