T.G.I.F. The Gating

      33 Comments on T.G.I.F. The Gating

One thing about Friday, it does tend to be timely.  Okay, one more thing about this Friday, it’s officially one week away from a very special day, but of course I’m not talking about Christmas Day.  We’ve all been on Santa watch here though and Friday gets us a bit closer to the big guy showing up.

My T.G.I.F. for today actually has nothing to do with Christmas or the Big Guy in Red.  Nope, it has to do with the newbies in the bedroom.  Now that they are getting more social with the Mom and Dad it’s time for us to get a look at each other, besides the paws under the door.  Dad will do that with three gates to make sure the whole doorway is gated.  So my T.G.I.F. for today is The Gating Is Fortified!

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!
As you can see, Five is not afraid of the gates, and Sister Seal is watching him on his roll about.  I’m not sure when the gates will actually go up, but I’m told it’s going to be soon.

Have a terrific Friday everyone and please stop by and give a howdy to Sister Kit tomorrow.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Progress! How exciting! I can’t wait to see what happens!


That is very exciting that the meeting is about to get started. It is good that Five and Seal are friends. Hopefully all kitties will behave themselves. You all have a great day and try to stay warm.


The gates are such a great idea. It’s exciting to see them! Five is so cute showing his tummy and I like the way Seal is just looking at him. 🙂

Five sure looks to be enjoying himself. The gate will give you all a view, hopefully for all it is enjoyable too.

Those gates will make it nice for you all to get acquainted. Mom says a long time ago when it was just Dakota and Phantom she had a double decker gate on the dining room entry to keep those young sibes from getting into trouble:)

Have a great weekend.
