Default kitty radio

I've been doing this for many years, bringing the outside sounds
inside for my inside only cats. The easiest way is to use a
baby/infant room monitor. You put the microphone part outside a
window or door where it won't get wet, and put the receiver part
inside your room/house. If you know an electronics techie friend, he
(or she) can easily connect the receiver to a powered computer
speaker. That makes a much better sound.

My new male cat, kitty has been here about one year. At the moment he
is lying less than one foot from the speaker with his ear pointing at
it. I think he likes it. They all do. Sometimes it takes some
perception, other times it is easy to tell. Keeping the volume very
low at first is a good idea.

Don't expect inexpensive room monitors to transmit more than 20 or 30
feet. My cheap Fisher-Price room monitor is clear at short range, and
sounds great connected to a computer speaker.

Have fun.

OK, I looked at some others. He seems like an ordinary cat person. He
doesn't like you, but then do you expect everyone to? Your behavior is
a bit outrageous, even you must acknowledge.

... Looking for experiences.

Have you ever hung anything from the ceiling for your cat to play with?
How did it go? Is it still available? How is it going?

Have you ever hung anything from the ceiling substantial enough so that
your cat could grab on to the thing and lift itself up from underneath?

I think I would be worried about the cat hanging itself
somehow.

Kami is not allowed any toys with string. Period. She eats string as
a snack.

Oscar too. She's eaten the string part of a "fishing pole" type toy

(ignored
the toy, though) and a woven nylon cat leash (no, not while she was on

it).
Sigh.

Her new cat tree even came with a dangly toy, but I had to remove it

because
as soon as she noticed it, she went for the string and started chewing.

No
attention paid to the mousie on the end.

*sigh*

I might worry about the cat hanging? Or this, to Brandy:

So you throw up your hands as if you're helpless to do anything
about it. As if there is no way to adapt, you are a victim of
circumstance? Must be rough having to take everything the way you
buy it without being able to modify anything. But seriously, I guess
it's good to know, I feel so capable.

Not just his asshole replied but his posting of everyone's headers.
Can you say TROLL Priscilla? He pops in every now and then.



He
doesn't like you, but then do you expect everyone to? Your behavior is

Really? Well how about you **** off too, then. :O)
