Well, I thought it was about time I let you all see the "Kitty Lair".
have a large 5 bedroom home and 4 of the rooms have been turned into
kitty rooms and nurseries.
Patter Cakes, my E.L. Silver Tabby has his
own room and the others are used for nursery rooms for Moms that prefer
to have peace and quiet when they have babies. Otherwise they have nests
in our bedroom closets if they prefer.
The babies spend about 3 weeks in the nest and then we put up the baby gates and give them a larger safe place to explore.
After that they move to the kitten living room downstairs. They have
everything a kitten could possibly want to play with plus, Mom is there
to teach them daily living and to play with them.
At about 7 weeks they get the run of the house and it isn't long before they find the stairs to play on and our bedroom. The babies all love to play on our bed, there is a ramp for easy access.
This is our home.
All of the windows upstairs are the kitty rooms.
This is my husband Mike being used as a kitty tower.
This is the kitty living room.
The babies get the run of this room until they figure out how to climb over the gate, then it's the entire house to explore.
This is the cat entertainment center in the kitty living room.
We have a pair of Pacific Parrotlets in the flight cage. The bottom 3 feet is plexiglass so we know no birds can get hurt by watching kitties.
Bling Bling with her babies, Bonnie and Clyde. They have moved into the kitty living room. Soon they will have run of the house, for now, they are safe in the kitty pen with Mom.

This is one of the nursery rooms.
Nadira prefers to be in a nursery room with her babies. I put a blanket down so the babies can walk easily without slipping on the hardwood floor.
These are my breeding pairs of Discus. They are in one of the nurseries, the kitties watch them for hours.
