Mr Tibbs arrived all the way from Australia about a month ago. He and his mama, Caroline live in the house we occupied while our cottage was being built. While he lived in Oz his yoomens built him a cat enclosure which ensured he could meander outdoors into the garden and yet be contained so that he didn't wander off.
Here in SA, Caroline commissioned Grant to build Mr Tibbs an enclosure.Steve designed it and Grant built it. Next follows a whole series of photos which I have taken to show how [well] this enclosure works.
The one end of the tunnel is attached to a window in the lounge
Standing at the lounge window I photographed the tunnel running out across the patio. The other end of the tunnel opens out into a large garden enclosure
The garden enclosure which is shaded; has Astro Turf and real grass already growing on the left side of the enclosure. Mr Tibbs loves to nibble juicy grass fronds
Caroline is pointing something out to Grant; I can't remember what!
A side-on view of the tunnel and enclosure
Mr Tibbs relaxing under the chair which is against the window from which his enclosure starts!
Mr Tibbs having his ears fondled by Uncle Grant
And out he goes!
These things can't be rushed, you know!
Mr Tibbs has potted shrubs as well as trees to climb in the enclosure
Hello, where you looking for me?
Here you can see the trees and stumps as well as the potted shrubs. The sandy area beyound the Astro turf on the right, is a natural sand pit for Mr Tibbs
These things take time, you know...(Mr Tibbs contemplating entering his kingdom! )
Aha! and in we go!
Mr Tibbs sits and looks around his domain...
...then lies down to survey his surroundings
Isn't this the most ingenious idea ever? Mr Tibbs even goes outdoors at night and his Mama doesn't have to worry about him getting lost of being hurt by other cats.

HAPPY TUESDAY TO YOU ALL!
