Last Summer, after I had finished most of the “new deck” (flooring) for the screen porch addition I had some nice pressure-treated lumber left…Could not resist taking a “leap” at building a nice comfortable chair (for that cold beer at the end of a long day “on the project site”...My buddy, next door calls this my “Life Guard Chair”...It really is comfortable…as you can see “Fluffy” decided it was his!! Have had many cats, in my life…but this guy…well he thought he was a dog, I think….would follow me around the yard, “played with” the beagle that lived up the street…and loved hamburgers…

The cat may act like a dog, but I’m willing to bet that he considers that chair as HIS!

Good looking outdoor chair. Nice job!

that’s a great chair and the kitty SO reminds me of our dear departed Gizmo. Must be a twin.

I just showed my daughter the picture and she tried to figure out what chair (in our yard) was used to take the picture of her cat…she is confused :) I’m telling you, that cat could be an identical twin

I like the chair. A comfortable outdoor chair has been on my list of things to build. Now I just need to convince my husband that I need a cat to keep it warm for me.

Have your say...
