After sleeping in a bit I spent some time building Colby a perch to keep out here for his visits. Though I won't bring him out except when I have a week or more away it's far easier to have one here than haul one back and forth. As luck would have it I had enough spare lumber and carpet out in the shed that I had everything I needed.
The new heater is working out well too! The place is warm and toasty which makes this place just feel like that much more of a home.
