Today Gene and I went to Lowe’s and bought some “chicken” wire (it isn’t called chicken wire but it’s pretty similar) to put around our balcony. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now, since I talked to my friend Katie, in hopes that it will keep Pippin on the balcony and off the roof (and neighbors’ balconies). I bought my own staple gun to attach the wire to the ledge and after about 20 minutes or so it’s done! Pippin is out there right now and has been for about 10 minutes. I’ve seen him try to get onto the roof once and he failed, so I take that as a good sign.
I want this to work so that I can let Pippin outside and not worry about him. He loves being outside so much but I don’t want to spend an hour walking around and watching him, so this would be a great solution. I will have to keep you all updated in case Pippin finds a way around it.
Cool thing is, now I have a staple gun that I can use for crafts! I think stapling old t-shirts to boards is in the near future!
