A Cat Cooker by Yonaka-Yamako A Cat Cooker by Yonaka-Yamako
Reflectix and foil tape sleeping box for the outdoor kitties.  They love them.  Large enough to house two medium cats or three small cats.

Working on a small sculpture I hope to have ready to take pictures of soon.  I've been debating milliput as the super sculpey needs to be baked and I have to wait for it to cool before I can add further detailing.... To then bake once more.

I forgot what a PITA sculpey could be.

Also looking at possibly getting an N scale train set so I'm fiddling about with various bits of nonsense associated with building dioramas and scenery.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's.

I may have to build one of these for Julius the Orange; he's more or less our cat now.

It works great.  All of the cat cookers I have made are usually inhabited in the very cool and cold nights.  Base it on an 18 x 18 inches, double all parts.  You can stiffen the parts with corrugated cardboard.  I use aluminum foil tape to secure the edges and over the exterior so it will last more than a year.

Make the walls about 6 inches tall and tape them up well.  The roof is 26 to 28 inches long and that provides over hang  to keep rain and other undesirable elements out.  The back wall is filled in and sometimes I have a little vent at the peak to let some of the heat generated vent off.  Makes for happier kitties.  Especially during the rain.  The front is blocked off enough to allow the cat easy access but doesn't let too much wind come in.  The reflectix the cat is exposed to, the warmer they will be. 

Given we're starting to see teens and single digits in Macon, you can imagine how brisk it is in Atlanta.

Keep a roll of the wider stuff on hand for yourself in the event of a loss of power.  Make a pad of it you can sleep on and throw a blanket or a few large beach towels and snuggle in.  If you lose power and heat for more than a day, make a pup tent of it and block off the foot end.  Toss in your bed roll and enjoy toastiness.

Our town has a very bad habit of losing power at critical times so I have a little experience with this.  Look at it as camping in the house.
