How to: Make a Cat Proof Fence!

It’s finally here! The “How to Make a Cat Proof Fence” video!

 

About two years ago, we moved into our house in the countryside.
The reason for that was very simple: we just wanted a big backyard for Monty to roam around in!
We lived in a 3 bedroom apartment before with a nice open yard outside. We walked Monty on a leash and he loved it! In fact, he loved it so much that he often woke us up in the middle of the night because he wanted to get out and explore nature.

When we adopted Monty from a shelter, the staff informed us that Monty always had been an indoor cat but like many other cats, Monty got really excited and happy to be outside. So when we finally had the opportunity to move into a house with a huge backyard for our boy, we didn’t hesitate!

The first thing we did when we moved in was to completely cat proof the fence so Monty couldn’t get out but instead play safely in the yard as much as he wanted.

We know that this is a controversial topic for many people… should a cat live their whole life in an apartment or should they just run free or should you keep them inside the yard?
Do you only have a tiny cat scratching pole in the corner of your home or do you have places where your cat can climb, get up high and do you engage them with daily playtime?
Everyone has their own opinion and we do too.
In our opinion a cat can easily be just as happy as an indoor cat or an outdoor cat. For the record, an outdoor cat can easily be bored if it doesn’t get any playtime and quality time with their human!
So it’s really all about the atmosphere of your home, what is available to enrich your cat’s life, and of course the cat’s temperament should be taken into account. Some cats simply do not want to live in an apartment and some might get too stressed outside.

It is very important to us as parents to Monty and Molly, that we know they are safe in our big backyard and we simply aren’t comfortable letting them run free. We would never get sleep knowing they would be outside all by themselves!
That’s why we feel that this cat proof fence is the perfect solution for all four of us.

Let us know in the comments if this video inspired you to cat proof your yard, if you want to see more “how to” videos, or if you’re interested in something completely different!

 

Happiness,
Mikala & Michael

Meet-and-greet with Molly!

Meet-and-greet with Molly!

We went with  Molly to an awesome meet-and-greet for the new movie “Secret Life Of Pets 2”.

As you know we are very protective of the kids so we rarely take them anywhere, but Molly showed us that she wants more!
This little super star girl loved the attention! She was surrounded by all new toys and lots of kids that wanted to play with her. She literally rolled around and played the whole time, walking around with her tail high among people to see if they had any snacks for her!

Here are some of the many pictures from the day.

We had bought so many new things for her to enjoy at the event. One of them is this huge feather thing and that’s probably her favourite. Photo by: Fotograf Klaus Bo

Something you didn’t know about Michael!

Something you didn’t know about Michael!

Yesterday I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants!

Not that many people know this, but Michael has been part of a hilarious improv comedy group for more than six years. Their name is ImproKat (ImproKat facebook) and they can always make me laugh! They have had many jobs over the years in Denmark where they have been booked for birthdays, company parties and much more.
Sadly the group members decided to freeze the group down indefinitely because they all have so much going on in their lives that there simply isn’t enough time to priority the group.
Yesterday was their last show and I seriously have never laughed so laugh and for such a long time in my entire life!

I hope that the group will unfreeze again one day so I can enjoy their humor, insanely good timing and just their hilarious personalities!

If you haven’t seen improv comedy before let me just tell you that you have been missing out of a lot of fun (if the group is good of course!).
