Is it a carpet
or maybe it's sisal...
Pet lovers can be a wee bit indulgent when it comes to their pets.
I've heard of pooches that get coiffed with bows in their hair and matching claw polish.
Well we are teetering on the edge of that precipice...
and Pepper is on the receiving side...
We subscribe to the American Bungalow magazine and have every issue since they started publishing
and I happened upon an ad for pet paraphenalia in the last issue
and asked him if he would be interested
in designing and building Pepper
a scratching post in the arts and crafts style...
he'd never made one before
but rose to the challenge
and he exceeded our expectations!
look at the attention to detail...
and constructed with quarter sawn oak
the finish is sheer perfection
it's a lovely solid piece
Pepper gave it the once over...
I think it meets her approval!
she is a pam-purred puss
that soft down duvet does beckon...
looking ever so relaxed
and given the fact that she's part Bengal
these moments are interspersed with frenzied activity
(you can see the surgical site where they shaved her tummy)
is that a smug shot?
I have a sneaky feeling that she is ruling the roost
or trying to give that impression!
I'd say she's got me under her spell...
she gives us much happiness
here in the Humble Bungalow.
I have been asked to show more detail of the Humble Bungalow
these are last years images

the fence shown here has been replaced with a new one
the slate patio is now mostly covered by creeping thyme
clematis and sundeck
and for interior images you can go here too.
