Cats in the henhouse

A year ago I wrote about the Eglu — “the iMac of chicken coops”, a Jetson’s-style chicken-house designed specifically to allow urbanites to raise their own flock. Today Emily Gordon alerted me the presence of the Eglu blog, in which people post about the adventures of their urban chickens — including this woman whose cats have decided that the Eglus make an excellent feline crib. The chickens aren’t so thrilled.

Given that Collision Detection is a blog, there’s probably some federal requirement that I run a certain number of cute-cat pictures each year, so this one ought to bring me up to quota.

(Thanks to Emily Gordon for this one!)
