Just make sure your cat is not around the bed when you extend. We almost did one in that way. Seems there are spaces that can be gotten into when the slide is in that close up tight when you extend.

The biggest trouble we are having is keep them (yes, we have 4) out of the opening that is 'begging' for their attention when the TV is in the raised position (ours retracts down into a cabinet.) We had to remove a panel to get them out.

Do you by any chance have a 3500RE? And, if so, how do you like it? I Just purchased one in Dec. myself, but am waiting for it to get above 0 degrees celcius to get anything some on/with it.

Good grief! So many "cat" escape routes and so many things to do to keep these feline critters inside. And sooooo much work! The solution? Should I dare say this? Why not! Get a dog. A real dog. One that weighs over 25 lbs.
Golden Retriever owner - with apologies to those among us who own what is obviously a gorgeous animal ------ the Maine Coon.

Awwww Festus <LOL> You made me laugh!!

It won't be long before Outbackmel's purring baby fur-ball will be nearly the size of a small "real dog" [your words, not mine ] & won't need the special precautions!!

All this talk about the new kitten (who already follows them around like a dog), and we don't even know her name....... Yooohooo Mel, can we have a name please & maybe a photo??

Smile Lady Sophie White Sox

Here is a photo of Lady Sophie White Sox. We "love" big dogs, however, they do need to go out frequently, rain, cold, morning or night. Had a pure bred German Shepard, highly trained, for 13 years. Loved her unconditionally.
Getting too old to handle the "big dogs".....

She's adorable! And I think I already see a hint of that, "Wasn't me! I didn't do it!", look in her eye.

Mel, you might need to add some pieces of panelling in the lower cupboards to block access to areas such as behind the stove. If your guy is anything like our Americans, he'll be in the cupboard before you can close the door. We travel with Registered American Shorthairs, show cats. And they will explore every nook and cranny to see what they can get into. Don't know your exact floor plan, but in a previous TT it had a counter next to the screen door and we forgot to close the sliding panel and one of our guys jumped right out thru the open slider.
Also, very importand make sure your guy is either in the TV or Carrier before operating the slides, either in or out. Ours ride in an Ultra Lite cage in the cab as I removed the rear seat to put the cage in. So they stay there until the rig is set-up and go back there before breaking camp.

Keep cats busy

We have a Big Sky 2010, that has nice interior doors and beautiful leather furniture.
We found this device online at citykittyclimber.com
Don't order if your cat has been de-clawed, it won't help.
It does not take up floor space and cats love it.
It's purr-fect.
Sorry 'bout the pun. LOL (Lots of Luck)
Mickey

Kitten

Getting close to our first "kitten" 5er experience. Lady Sophie Whitesox is now 5 months old and I swear she can clear 6 ft (horizontal from a 4 paw position) without thinking...

We would not de claw....

Our RV is a 2011 36' Outback Sydney....we couldn't afford a high dollar unit
Bought the "time to trade again" type.....only kidding.....

Thanks for your input....glad to see so many pet friendly people....
