Weekends are for exploring! Be a tourist in your own city or get lost in a new one 🗺
Sometimes you need 50,000 words and The Sky to shim and support the cause. While Niki and Nick are away at the ASPCA spa I decided to renovate the trap support system over the tub. All materials are scrap wood I already have from other projects. Last night I used a board that was too narrow and a bit precarious and didn’t really fit/straddle properly. One bad bump or shift and it could’ve caved and toppled the traps but I knew it was temporary. Raised by an mother/artist/arts and crafts teacher for city park community centers and a father/carpenter/house builder, I can be pretty creative and resourceful. Just sayin’. Not to mention I own pretty much any tool and power tool one could possibly need just shy of a table saw. Sigh and slouch-pout on the latter. This new set up with the two boards will be easy to store when not in use and will be perfect for single and double trap days. For the life of me, even with a straight edge I could not cut those suckers straight! However, the angled cut ended up being perfect for the space I was covering. Don’t fight the universe! Go with it!!! Now I’m off to my local 99 cent store to get a shower curtain to put over the wood so it doesn’t get all pissy. 👊🏻💥😻 #bathroomssavelives#bathroomwoodshop#tnrsaveslives#tnr#trapneuterreturn#gottadowhatchagottado#catsofinstagram#ridgewoodnyc#shimit#streetcatsofinstagram#streetcatsneedlovetoo#backyardcats#compassionisaverb#bathroomstudio#wheretheresawilltheresaway#gettnrcertified#bushwickcats#brooklyncats
Sound up as usual when it comes to Opie! But even Ginger’s purrs can be heard! Tonight was so special. The more and longer I hang out with Opie and Ginger the more comfortable they both get with me. They’re actually starting to show complete comfort with my presence and even seek affection. Tonight is the FIRST time Opie has been right next to me and sprawled with an exhale, stretch and more purring. AND Ginger came over and practically got in my lap with head butts and purrs. These two are soooo ready for a transition into a home. I’ve never met more calm, mindful sweet cats. Seriously. They play quietly at night, love petting but aren’t at all needy, completely independent but they get excited and come to greet me when I enter the studio in the morning and evening when I get home from work. I really didn’t expect them to blossom this much while in my care. Imagine what can happen once they settle into the comforts of happy ever after.
Post of the week. I’m going to focus on my rescued fosters this week. It’s hard to even consider doing TNR when I already have three lives I’m responsible for and need to find homes. I’ll revise my adoptapet listings for Ginger, Opie and Margaret since each cat has blossomed in their own unique ways towards embracing indoor life and trust with their humans. Now you wouldn’t even know any of these cats were former street cats or fence sitters. Check out KITTY RIOT TNR on adoptapet.com for their info and adoption process. Please share and tag! Team work makes the dream work and hope is dope!
