The tunnel and the landing platform

I posted before that I had repurposed pieces of the Manor.  The loft area was transformed into a Tunnel & the landing platform is still a platform.

Both changes/additions were received well & accepted quickly by all.  Dalai was the only one who had initial reservations about the Tunnel but that only lasted a couple of days.

 

As before, I can use the repurposed Manor platform for placing dishes of food & also wet leaves for a misting.  I did not plan for the supporting perch underneath to be used as a perch, but Perry & Lennie discovered it quickly & like it!

Tea Towel Tunnel

Atilla’s outside-Manor time is exclusively spent at the Poang Chairground Resort.  Although she is very busy, I felt it was time to introduce another Chair Challenge to keep her mentally as well as physically active.  This new “ride” has taken the shape of The Tea Towel Tunnel.

Basically, I pegged (another) tea towel up in loops at the back of the chair so she could enter it from the ladder & exit at various points either upwards to the top of the chair or to the far end, the side of the chair.

It did not take her long to investigate, in fact it was a matter of minutes!  Since then, it has been a firm favourite as you can see by these videos:

Once she emerges, she usually immediately returns to the ladder to go through the tunnel again, however in this video you will see that she decides to go back in the way she came out…. she has such a creative mind!
