Maia has a new play tree

Thanks to Jeanene Bernardin, Maia has a new play tree! Jeanene visited recently and brought us a new cage (smaller but useful for outside or for traveling) and a play stand. But I wanted to change the top of the play stand, and put a tree on it instead. So, I unscrewed the "T" top with the feeders on either side, and went out seeking a nice branch. Cathy, who is Johnny's mom and has a wholesale florist shop, had some manzanita branches that were just right... and at the right price, too!



$25 bought this gorgeous sand blasted manzanita branch. I brought it home and lopped off all of the little branches, all of the pokey bits, and sawed the end straight. Then I just drilled and screwed! The white chain is from the hardware store... it's plastic... and the toys are from PetSmart (on sale!) So for less than $35, Maia has a new play stand... isn't she a pretty bird?

Maia is so beautiful, and looks so happy. Can't blame her though with all her new fancy toys!

Neat! I BET she loves her new tree! We really need to get a cat tree for the cats. Might keep them off the bookshelves and other furniture!

Or Luna off the stove. She burnt a paw Saturday night... and we had to call out the emergency vet. She's OK, just feeling a bit sorry for herself. Big soulful kitten eyes.

Pity Maia can't visit... I'm sure that would cheer all the kitties, LOL!
