The area above the fridge is inaccessible (to me) without a step stool, so I figured why not remove the doors and make it a cozy nook for George and Gracie to hide in.
Here is how it looked before, painted white and complete with doors and spindles:
Then the doors and dreaded spindles were removed:
Hmm, it's a good start, but the cardboard cat bed had to go.
There, now it seems to be more inviting and I find George up here a lot, except he's above the cabinets instead of inside it.
I painted it the same gray as the cabinets to make it feel more cat cave like.
He seems to be ignoring the wire bed in the cubby, but seems to have a thing going on with this new chick.
Yup, nobody up here but us chickens.
Long Live the Queen of Cats
