Materials: Antonius wire basket

Description: My kitty needed some fresh air; and so did we. Problem was, our ghetto-ass apartment has no screen in half the windows. See, our kitty Po Boy likes to escape when he gets the chance. Jump on the roof of the neighbor’s car and spend a fine evening courting the ladies. Well that just ain’t how a civilized kitty ought to behave, so we looked around the apartment for a good solution. We had too many of these Antonius baskets kickin’ around anyway; add a tea towel and you’ve got a perfect window seat for old don gato. I’d say this compromise is a win-win.

    Brilliant idea!!! Ur cat looks exactly like my Isabella…hmmmm… i wonder. Lol. Jackson Galaxy would love this idea, “my cat from hell,” show. He is all about keeping our babies indoors and safe. Ur idea gives ur cat the ability to still feel like he is outside, keeping him less bored. Great thinking!

    Most cat staff realize the impossibility of turning Monsieur Chat into a gentleman and instead convert him into an ‘it’. For anyone with limited funds, most local humane societies have vouchers for reduced fees. Hopefully Antonius just karaokes “The Way We Were” when the opportunity allows.

    Beautiful kitty. Great idea for keeping His Lordship safe & gentlemanly.

    Ali…sense of HUMOR?

    Oh Ali. It’s just slang. There are worse things in this world to get upset over.
    Clever idea Jules!

    1. ghetto ass. a big ass, a large ass.

    And in the picture that cat does appear to have a rather healthy sized posterior. Seems like a perfectly apt use of the phrase.

    Cute idea, cute cat and cute writing style! I particularly apreciate that the cat looks like he is soulfully serenading the cute kitties who are doomed to never again know his love.

    I don’t think that “ghetto ass” is either a technical term or appropriate for this post. Please remove.
