Repurposing a door
26 March 2017Posted by on
As previously posted, Perry & Lennie had found the way to come out. Over the following days I noticed they had some difficulty in using the small doorway of the quarantine cage. That particular cage has doors that slide upwards. Being a hoarder (!) I remembered I kept the little doors from the old Ferplast. I used one of these to fashion a small landing platform. I prized open the hooks enough to slide through the bars & used a rope perch to balance it on, held firm with some paper rope. It seemed to work well…..
Interestingly, if Perry came out without Lennie noticing (he may have been chewing on a toy or something), then Lennie seemed to not know how to then come out. After this happened a few times, I noticed that when on the threshold of the doorway, Perry would wait until Lennie was paying attention, & then fly out, knowing that Lennie would follow him. Smart or what?
