The younger, friendlier, confident cat (Thomas, the ginger and white one in a couple of the photos) worked out how to use the PetWalk cat flap on his first day in the house (albeit with a bit of encouragement and demonstration from me).
The older, deaf, timid one (Bob, plain black and camera shy) was blissfully unaware of of the presence of a portal to the outside world and has been using a litter tray in the Utility Room (where the cat flap is). When I’ve tried opening the cat flap for him, using the remote control, he’s run away.
I don’t know whether he saw the other cat using it or worked it out for himself, but yesterday I spotted him walk up to it, wait for it to open and hop outside as if he’d been doing it all his life.
Week 25, Day 1:
- You have to look very carefully to see any difference in the main photo, but most of the external windows and doors are now installed.
Week 25, Day 1
Two of the four Internorm HS330 lift-and-slide doors
The other two doors are just visible in the background
One of the HS330 doors installed in the Open Plan Living Area
The ground floor insulation and polished concrete slab still needs to be installed (due next week) so the finished floor level will be just below the door threshold.
There’s another matching sliding door to the left of this one, and a smaller one to the right.
The east elevation, with all doors and windows installed
Temporary installation of PetWalk Passivhaus cat-flap
There’s a cream-coloured cover panel to go over the inside of the cat-flap (and a dark grey one for the outside).
