The new kittys arrive on Sunday, and there's plenty for them to do, as you can probably tell from the photo. However, if you are in the conservatory and look to the left you'll see the piano (photo below)
Question is, will the kittens be sufficiently occupied with the tree, toys, tunnel etc, or will the piano make an even better scratching post, and if so, what's the best way of avoiding that??

ooo how exciting for you & what a lovely home you have! :D

hopefully they will leave the piavo alone, although i'd keep the lid down! :lol:
if they do go for the legs, pick them up immediately with a firm "NO" & place them on the cat tree instead with lots of praise. a few times of doing this & they'll realise.

good luck & do be sure to share some piccies when they arrive :D

What a great reply and so quick, thank you! I suppose I'll have to just wait and see, but I thought forewarned was forearmed, so I'll try that if it happens... I'm hoping they might just realise which is their side of the room and which is mine....!

Hi and welcome to the world of Bengl slavery. Hopefully they won't scratch the piano if it's highly polished - they much prefer something they can get their claws into. However, they will walk on top of it and across the keyboard if you leave the lid up and I think they'll have fun with the fringe of the throw you've got over it.

Cat tunnel was from eBay
http://shop.ebay.co.uk/merchant/top-cat10

and the sofa was from a garden centre called Gordon Rigg near Rochdale, Manchester. Although I think I've seen them on the net too.

Oooooooh I dont know about the piano...u may end up with a musical bengal who insists on sleeping on it - mine thinks he's my laundry boy and delights in sitting inside my rattan laundry basket curled up amongst the washing and then scratching on it even though his scratching post is just there!!! Must say your house is very pretty though!!! :)

You're very kind thank you. We're lucky to be in a nice position overlooking the sea and that conservatory is off the lounge, so there's plenty of room for them. I might try and encourage them to "play" the piano, but it's of case of being careful of what you wish for...

(They'll probably play better than me mind you!)

I'd say a day :lol:

A question :?

My dining table is in the living room and above this table is a unit on the wall. Do you think i'd be best to get that unit off?

I'm a bit worrid Oscar will use it as a cat tree :shock:

goblin loves to curl up on the top of the top shelf of my 2m tall book shelf...

I'm just worried about him bringing it off the wall, it's held up on a plaster board wall and the weight of him, well :D

ahhh good point. methinks some judicious testing with varying weights may be in order.
