Catio

In 2015 I built an outdoor cat enclosure, or “catio”, in our back yard.  It’s something I’d wanted to build for a while, and finally convinced hubby the cats would [1] be safe from predators and [2] hidden from 99% of public view.  We have a pretty small back yard and the 6’x6’x3′ catio takes up about 1/3 of it!

The New Normal

I don’t like the new normal.  Not at all.  I am not good with change.  It triggers my anxiety.  And makes living with depression more difficult.  But at the same time I am thankful for so much.
