IKEA Fans Photo: Cat Pagoda

Image Title: Cat Pagoda
Description: This is Elizabeth's long suffering cat Gigi. He is a highly tolerant cat that puts up with being dressed in doll dresses, funny hats, necklaces etc as demonstrated in the other pictures .

The pagoda is actually a cube with a roof made out of the black foam squares that you can buy in costco to put on garage floors to make it warmer and softer than bare concrete. The "door" was removed by rampaging cats (like a small herd of fuzzy elephants) and the roof entered the extreme sag that lead to this shot. Gigi is clearly just recovering from his strenuous day of being a living plush toy .

Normally the kids use the black foam cube as their NECK (Natrural Environment Club for Kids) clubhouse .

Note Gigi's fixed attention on the purple top... Inside there is his favorite cat treats. Elizabeth has taught him that if he's patient she'll give him one. He does the most absurd things for Elizabeth and her little can of "motivational enhancements"

Comments on tag "Dude. You're embarassing me."

Venture doesn't take well to Gigi's foreys into being a cross dressing cat. He tolerates it in the house, but if he catches Gigi with a dress on out side he hisses and growls ferociously! You can almost hear him saying:
Get back inside now! What if the neighborhood cats see you!?

She couldn't care less about Gigi and his sartorial experimentation... She just wants to chase and pounce on things, and occasionally fall over. She is NOT a graceful cat.

Re: IKEA Fans Photo: Cat Pagoda

It makes great tunnels and castles too! We've made all sorts of things out of it... Great stuff, even works well on floors in the shop .

Re: IKEA Fans Photo: Cat Pagoda

We used it to cover up the ugly floor in the old kitchen!! When McGuyver gets a studio, we'll use it there too...after we've made some tunnels.
