Chain reaction

You know what a chain reaction is ? No ? I’ll explain…

First, television has shown serious signs of weakness. As long as we had to change it, Claire and Momo thought they could take a bigger one. They realized that the current furniture would be too small.

Since the cheap cabinets in Momo’s office had already been patched up many times and they were no longer really closing, our humans thought they could be replaced by the cabinets in the living room. So they made that change. Our living room looked like this :

After a trip to Ikea, a few hours of putting shelves together, and a good series of swearing, our living room was back to normal. You could again pass from the cat tree (right) to the staircase (left). But we could no longer go on our beloved cabinets, as they were now in Momo’s office…

Momo then decided to catify his office ; instead, see what he did so that we could walk around our cabinets again :

Cool, huh ?

Ta-daaa !

That’s it ! After one month of works, our new kitchen is finally finished ! The table is just missing (it won’t arrive before three weeks) : imagine a white table with anthracite feet and four chairs (2 green, 2 orange), OK ?

Before – after :

What Claire and Momo prefer : the dishwasher ! (it’s the first time they have one)
What we prefer : the return to normalcy !

However, we live in slow motion, because we’re living exceptional weather conditions. Indeed, the period from April till July is the hottest that Switzerland has lived since 1864, and the driest since 1921 (source : MétéoSuisse). We hope it rains, and the temperatures come down !

Catipilla : a project came true !

Remember Catipilla ? Yes, the modular cat climbing activity system that let your cat climb indoor as outdoor ! We told you about it in our post of April, 21st.

Their Kickstarter campaign succeeded, and Catipilla was officially able to lauch its products on November 4th and 5th of this year during the National Pet Show of the United Kingdom. All of their materials are sourced from the UK and their products are manufactured in the UK.

We’re happy to have been able to contribute to this success, and it’s not finished : Catipilla is bursting with ideas to enrich our environment, visit their future projects here.
