Kitty TV

Every year, winter comes to RI (as it should). Then every year my family makes a cardboard house for the outdoor cats (they started off as one stray cat a couple of years ago, but of course multiplied). The cardboard houses would be thrown out at the end of winter since they would become soggy (even though we covered them in plastic bags) and an eye sore on the porch. Last winter, one of our friends got a little overambitious and made a house that was way too big (we could have fit both of our Golden Retrievers inside with room to spare), so the cats didn't use it. Last month I reorganized my room and decided to get rid of the cabinet I had placed my TV in. I was gonna toss or burn it, but decided to convert it in to a place for the cats to live. The light located on top doesn't light up, but is instead connected to a flashlight connected to the interior of the cabinet which does light up when the push light is "clicked".

Nervous kitties?

Cats!! urg...A few years ago our older cat started biting and licking all his fur off..When the fur was gone he kept licking and biting! That left scabs,and blood all over.,but this was not the only thing that has happened to him. He was also very antisocial,and very skittish. At the time we only had two cats,who ended up mating...but then the mother cat gave birth to her litter she started not using her litter box..just went everywhere all over the house. So we decided to get her to someone at a farm. This is when my father cat started all the over grooming. We ended up keeping one of the male kittens from that litter. He is perfectly fine this whole time. Which ruled out mites that were effecting the Father cat...We moved to a new house a few weeks ago. I was hoping BamBam wouldnt get worse. But He is healing fine and doing great..It is his baby that is having the problems. Overgrooming.. WE DO NOT HAVE FLEAS...I de shed them daily....with a fle comb...wHAT CAN I DO TO HELP THESE POOR KITTIES?

Kitty Litter Bucket Group/Sites/Ideas???

Does anyone know if there are any groups are sites that promote/share ideas for reusing Kitty Litter Buckets?  Maybe it's because we have four cats, but I find new uses for those things Buckets all the time!  I'd like to see some more varied ideas and uses...  and I had a hard time finding any 'inspiration' when I came up with the idea to use them for shelving.  Keep sharing those ideas to reuse!!

Glow in the Dark collars for Kitties

This is my first actual post though I've loved the site for a long time now. Anyhow I have two new cats, beautiful friendly, I love them to bits. The only trouble is they are very dark furred and there's been a couple of times they've hidden in plain sight. Me and my fiance are both worried about stepping on them I thought some glowing type collar would be cool. I've been searching the web for an answer and I can't really find anything so I decided to make one of my own. I have limited experience with electronics, I saw the post with an ewire I think it was called collar for dogs. I should be able to figure that out however the cat collar would be much smaller and I don't think it would comfortably sport the battery unit. I ditched the idea of glow in the dark paint (flaking and the cats probably wouldn't appreciate the fumes). I considered some glow-in-thedark hot glue.. but I don't know how to do that without making a collar look lik ea stiff, plasticy, mess. Maybe weaving some of the glow in the dark plastic laces into a collar kinda like the paracord bracelets? Anyone have any other ideas? Anyone heard of some glowing material or even glowing material dye? Thanks :)

I need a little box that the dogs can't push aside and stick their head into, something they can't manage to paw at to get their head into the "kitty treats."   I have seen a wooden box with a top you can swing open that looks like a maze inside.  It was on an exclusive pet website and too expensive for cheap!!

Any ideas for winter outdoor cat shelter?

Basic shelter doesnt work in the freezing months of winter....any ideas to keep kitties warm and out of elements? Styrofoam and rigid insulation boxes are ok, but its difficult to keep dry in the snow and wind. I like the chicken coop shed, making it airtight and perhaps wrapping or draping it with solar heating material-hmm, it would that work? Cant be too big, this is to be placed in semi-private view. Cost is a concern too!!

Cruelty to animals isn't okay...

Personally, I'm not an activist or animal maniac of any kind... but I find this instructable really irresponsible for the site to host and promote: "DIY Kitty Crack: ultra-potent catnip extract" The debate in the comments alone discusses how dangerous this can be for animals... and whereas I'm sure instructables bears no responsibility for what users do with their newly found knowledge, there's a line you guys should draw in the sand:  don't support teaching people how to kill domesticated animals. Take it down...

Firebreathing Pics

Heres the deal, my roommate wanted a shot of me firebreathing for some CD jacket artwork, so I ended up jpegifying all the frames near the frame I used for my avatar (Huh?). Basically I ended up with 28 different photos from that one firebreath sequence. Since the photos were just sitting on my drive, and it is the 4th, I figured I'd share them with everyone, and if enough people are interested I'll turn the other firebreathing sequences into pictures too. I threw all the photos in a RAWR im a kitty which can be found by clicking anywhere on the text.

Are you growing anything right now? Yay gardening!

I'm curious if any of you have a little mini garden (or, if you're lucky, a large garden!) going at the moment. :) I have four tomato plants that I've grown from seed (I see some blooms!), some oregano, a half eaten bush of catnip, and a small Anaheim pepper plant. I want to get more plants going, but since I live in an apartment with two nosy kitties, I do better keeping my plants outside. I just have a little porch outside that I can put my plants on. I still have room on it, but I figure it's best to not get carried away. ;) Oh, and post pictures if you have them!

I haz a sad - Gorilla competiton

So I saw the Gorilla competition and it said - make a cardboard construction and enter it in our competition. So I made my construction, and went to enter it, and only then did I see that I was supposed to be making was an instructable. This may be obvious to anyone familiar with the site, but I had not entered a competition on here before, and it does not say anywhere in the rules that a series of photographs and instructions was part of the competition. So I have a very nice cat tower made from carboard tubes (which the kitties love), but only a final photograph. Sigh. I will know next time, but I think you should say that this is a competition to make an instructable, rather than just a finished object.

Plushie Instructable Robot - Preview 1.0!!

Here's how far I've gotten with the Robot that I'm making. Patterns are hard, ya'll! You'll see the arm graveyard in the pictures. (Including the one that turned out like a condom - no idea about that one. Very weird.) I went through a lot of different bodies, too, but those aren't nearly as annoying. The last stumbling block is the head - after that it will be smooth sailing! I'm working on that right now. Keep in mind that I'm making these pieces out of felt - it's cheaper for practicing. The actual plushie will be made out of fleece. Yay! And the body will be less angular, too. The shoulders should be more rounded. The ends of the legs and arms will be sewn into the body seams. :D And now... the gallery. Complete with evil kitties that are trying to stall the construction.
