Next step: frosting the window. But that'll wait until tomorrow, after the contractor has finished all his final tasks.
On the kitty front, Minnie's presents arrived today: two new cat trees (well, one tree and one perch) from Feline Fanatics. They both go in the bedroom between the tall dresser and a window. The perch replaces a cardboard box that has been serving in that capacity for about three years (such elegance, I know--how could I bear to part with it?). I got the tree to allow Minnie easy access to the top of the chest of drawers--she loves high places. She's already put her mark on both trees, scratching enthusiastically. Here are some pix of Her Cuteness enjoying her new trees.
"It's MY tree! MINE!"
Minnie digs into the new tree.
She also likes the perch--hopped right up on it as soon as I got it out of the box. I just didn't have my camera handy. :)
