I'm also going to try my hand at making a cat scratch post. Just a small one, using the cheap scrap lumber and a couple squares of carpet. We'll see how it turns out. If it's not too hard, and the cats love it, maybe I could make a few more.
I'm hoping that both projects will be something that I can do without Tony's help. I keep seeming to come up with projects I can't manage myself. Our current project we're just wrapping up is a giant 6-foot kitty enclosure to keep the cats contained. Some of them have decided the house is their litter box, and rather than ban them to the tiny bathroom, or have to rehome them, I've decided to give them a spacious two level mansion. So far they don't seem too terribly upset about it.
I also need Tony to till the garden (I can't deal with the noise and vibration of the tiller or the mower), make my bean trellises (which should have been my project but the piece I needed wasn't there and Tony made some mental calculations and modifications so now I have no idea how he plans to make them), and as of today I've decided to fix up one of the old rabbit hutches we got a while ago... It needs a complete overhaul.
I weighed all of the weaned baby bunnies today. No surprise that Lola's litter is bigger than Penelope's litter. Bangarang and Beatrice are the smallest at 2.5 pounds (yay! Bixby isn't the runt anymore), and Ashley and Ansen are the biggest at 3.5 pounds. I rechecked genders just to be absolutely sure, and everyone is as they should be. I may end up selling Bennett and Penelope, as well as Elsa. They are the smallest three of my breeding rabbits, and I want to focus my attention on bigger bunnies.
I also checked gender on Cinder's babies, looks like two bucks. I checked Cuddles's babies too and I think she has one boy and one girl. Of course I will continue to check to make sure the "sex change fairy" all rabbit breeders dread doesn't visit. I was 100% accurate on Penelope's litter, and while I was right on the number of boys and girls in Lola's litter, two of them were initially mis-checked.
