When this was first posted, I thought it was a great idea, however I had an extreme aversion to cats. Almost a year later, with a new boyfriend who owns three WONDERFUL kitties, I truly appreciate the genius of this project. I guarantee that the moment I own my own home and adopt my own cats, this is the very next thing that I will make! This is one project that I actually think about on a regular basis, and I describe it to ALL cat-owning friends (or potential cat owners).
Congratulations on winning a "Best of 2009"!
