Good Monday Morning

It's a beautiful Monday here in the mountains. The air is a little muggy from all the rain, but the sunshine is wonderful! I am baking bread this morning and I also got together a couple of bags of clothes for the charity shop.

I thought I'd share a picture of our little kitty cabin. My husband made this for the cats to sleep inside of in the winter. It has two stories in it for the cats to share. There is a light bulb underneath to heat it when it's really cold. Our oldest daughter painted it to match the cabin!

And while the cats like it and will get inside when it's extremely cold~it is really the favorite of the chickens for laying their eggs! Right now, our little red hen is setting on her clutch of eggs~which has made the rest of the hens mad. It doesn't stop them, though--they just climb in and lay their eggs on top of her! We try to get the 'new' eggs out periodically through the day, LOL!

Hubby is going to build a couple more of these to put out in the yard and hopefully, the hens will use them, instead of the cat's cabin!


  1. How cute! what a great idea and the chickens seem to think so, LOL!!!

  2. That's adorable, I don't blame the chickens! I guess he'll have to make a fancy coop next?

  3. That is so neat! I love your cat cabin/chicken coop combo.

  4. Oh, your kitty cabin is so cute Rose Mary!!! I love it!
    Have a very wonderful week!

  5. Adorable!! Are the logs painted on or they real? I love it!!!

  6. How funny! That chicken looks like she's ready to fight anyone trying to get her out. :) blessings, marlene

  7. RM,
    Well how cute is that little house! I can't think that the cats and the chickens shoud be in there at the same time, so good idea to built another one.
