I glued velcro strips to the flap. Glued popsicle sticks together and glued corks to them. More velcro on the corks.

There are a few safe and warm places, though, like cuddled up with Artemis and Daddy on the sofa. Or lurking behind the broom (that needs to be used!) waiting to pounce on Sammie who is busy swimming in the water bowl.
And there's always camouflage, that can work, too.

And all flaked out of the 4th of July, in her red/white/blue collar. She slept thru any fireworks, as did we! This "getting up at 4:30 to play with the kitten" stuff is wearing us out!
"MOHM! At least let me fix my face before you snap a picture!" Caught her in mid-yawn.
"Do you love me, Mom? Am I just the cutest thing ever?" Yes, dearheart- you are! And I do. And so does Daddy.
Doesn't she look calm here? IT'S ALL AN ACT! She's such a little faker. lol

And there you have it- a stacked coin quilt that was supposed to be something completely different. I guess you just never know what's going to happen, do you?

There's a lot of work to be done, the guys cut up the biggest pieces as our chain saw isn't big enough to go halfway through the trunk.
And just for size reference-
The really hard part will be wrestling these 200 pound chunks into the log splitter, poor Jim! Oh, he counted the rings in the base- 123 years old, approximately. Wow. Beeswax used to climb this tree, just to scare me to death, I think. I used to see him up in it but never saw him come down it, I have no idea how he did it.
One funny coincidence- Mike, from the tree service is married to Debbie. She works at our vet's office. I asked him if he had seen the 4 white kittens that the clinic had raised and he said not only had he seen them, he'd helped feed them as they all took turns bringing the litter home at night to care for them. He had fed Nosey Parker! He was so excited to see her again and he was glad that we had her. He kissed her on her head. lol It was so cute.
