  • R: Hey guys!

  • Soooo um

  • We've had this cage outside for our cats for like

  • How long?

  • A year?

  • J: Like I gotta say about a year. R: Two years? More than two years?

  • J: Oh yeah-- R: I don't know, we made a video

  • when we first got this so you guys can see exactly how long

  • It's not bad for being outside

  • Plu-- (startled giggle)

  • Look at his little paws

  • Look at his little paws down there.

  • um

  • And also these are plastic

  • When we first got these we were a little worried

  • that they might eventually BREAK because of our fat-ass cats.

  • BOIII

  • P: (indignant meow) R: (scoff)

  • R: BOII

  • He's on a diet.

  • We've had him on a diet for a little while now cuz he's getting a little chubby...

  • and just yesterday when we came home

  • This drawer was open:

  • It's a drawer he's never opened by himself before

  • And he managed to dig through *everything* and get into the **bottom** and open the closed bAG OF FOOD

  • You little butthead

  • So we gotta get some more child locks

  • But most importantly we can't use these anymore

  • Because our cats are too heavy and they broke one

  • We've had this for a couple days without

  • Um

  • A third (ledge) one of these in it

  • Understandably the cats are very distressed about having to jump from here

  • all the way down to the bottom if they wanna come back in

  • So uh

  • we decided we're gonna DIY

  • And try to build some new shelves

  • Ourself!

  • So, we're gonna go to the store now

  • and pick up some new STUFF

  • R: We'll see you there! J: Let's get to it!

  • R: Sorry for the crappy iPhone quality here!

  • It was also too loud in there, so I'm just gonna voice over what happened

  • but we found some shelves that were coincidentally like the exact size we needed 8)

  • So we ended up just buying those.

  • And in some home centers

  • they have a work section

  • where after you buy something you can use their tools for free!

  • To cut it or drill holes if you don't have any power tools where you live

  • Or you can't use power tools where you live because they'd be too noisy. :(

  • So after we bought the shelves we just went right over to their little work section.

  • And Jun drilled some holes into the shelves

  • which we're gonna use some wire to attach to our cage.

  • So I just thought that was pretty neat!

  • That they have a section there that you can use for free.

  • (if you need to)

  • We also did this on a different day actually so if we're wearing different clothes

  • Then

  • *scoffs* IT'S FINE JUST--

  • JUST IGNORE THAT

  • So yeah! See you back at our house!

  • Okay, so wuh back!

  • We got our new shelves

  • With the little holes in it

  • Umm

  • I don't think I mentioned this while we were there,

  • so I'll go ahead and explain it.

  • These are supposed to be indoor shelves, ~but~ it was basically the exact same size.

  • So it kind of worked out perfectly plus this has a waterproof coating on it.

  • But even THOUGH we got a waterproof coating:

  • We got a tarp to put over our cage anyway.

  • Just to keep these safe for the rain because

  • This is too--

  • I figured this would probably be too slippery for our cats.

  • Maybe especially when they're trying to jump

  • I don't want them to slip while they're jumping and get hurt falling.

  • So

  • we got--

  • We got some

  • "step sticky pasty carpet"

  • that you stick on stairs.

  • And actually we went to another home center after we bought this too

  • And they literally had this exact same thing in their pet section.

  • That said it was like for ~dogs and stuff~ walking up steps, and it was--

  • What

  • twice as expensive as this? >:(

  • Really, so I'm glad we got this one even though this was quite expensive the way it was.

  • But because it's carpet we don't want it to get wet--

  • so we got thuh-the TARP!! ⊙ᗜ⊙

  • And

  • For

  • our shelves

  • (oh my gah)

  • For our shelves, we got wire

  • to wrap it around the edges.

  • J: Can I... R: Yup.

  • J: Show you the...

  • This is the limit of how heavy they can support.

  • This says twenty-one kilograms.

  • R: (laughter) H-Haku...

  • J: Haku is about five, close to six kilograms:

  • Nagi is about four,

  • and Poki... is... close to six. --_--

  • So even if three of our kitties get on it, should be fine.

  • R: With just one of these!

  • But we've drilled a whole bunch of holes so now it's gonna have a bunch of wire all the way around.

  • The only thing I need to be careful about now is...

  • making these flat enough,

  • And out of the way so that the cats can't accidentally get their claws stuck on it or something.

  • If it seems like it's gonna be an issue when we're done,

  • then maybe...

  • I don't know

  • we can get some glue??

  • Or something to go over the edges

  • so that the cats can't accidentally get their claws stuck under this.

  • J: I think that'll be fine, but let's see!

  • R: I really-- (stutters)

  • You just never know! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • (plastic rustling in the background) Well maybe this--

  • maybe this can cover...

  • Yeah--

  • Actually, I think this can cover them.

  • J: ん.

  • R: PERFECT!!! 8)

  • R: So...

  • R: We brought our cage inside to do it all in here.

  • We're gonna have to clean the bottom before we send it back out.

  • R: I don't know if you guys can see...

  • There's leaves and junk all in the edges of the bottom...

  • J: I think those are my Momiji leaves from my Bonsai ;; R: (giggles)

  • (R: His grandma's Bonsai. ^^)

  • J: Not the uh--

  • J: Drug. >:(

  • J: Drug leaf...?

  • R: OHHHHAH J: It's a Japanese maple leaf. :(

  • R: He used a Momiji leaf in one of his cooking videos.

  • R: Uhh...

  • R: With the sharpening of--?

  • No

  • Polishing a Rusty Knife video?

  • J: ん

  • R: Was it?

  • J: ん

  • R: And some people thought--

  • J: "IS IT MARIJUANA??

  • R: I told him!

  • R: People were gonna say that :/

  • R: Right?? Cus like they look kinda similar...

  • J: It's only you guys, AMERICANS.

  • (laughter)

  • J: It's a Japanese maple leaf. :(

  • R: Uhh, so question Jun.

  • We've got these wires. Do you have a wire cutter?

  • J: Uhh...

  • R: Cuz that's not something I thought about until literalLY RIGHT NOW

  • J: I thought that we had one of the tools...

  • J: I thought we had a (nib?)

  • R: Do we??

  • J: Let's look. ;;

  • R: DO WE??? (laughs)

  • J: Can I drop this camera on the counter--

  • R: Yeah I gotta-- J: and look?

  • R: I gotta figure a way to--

  • R: I gotta get them scissors to open these anyway so...

  • R: All right, this is not what this tool is for...

  • J: I think we got this from the dollar store.

  • R: This is not what this is for.

  • J: It is! This part is!

  • R: No.

  • J: It is! (more bickering)

  • R: No, I got this at a home center, that was not a dollar store tool :/

  • J: Really? R: Oh, god don't let it--

  • R: Wait...

  • R: Angle, it's gonna-- yeah J: Cool?

  • J: See!! (it cuts!!)

  • R: Okay.

  • R: Uhhh now can you find that before the cats eat it?

  • J: I don't kno-- oh here it is. ^^ R: (laughs)

  • R: Okay good

  • R: All right, all right. J: See??? It works!

  • R: It's okay. (phew)

  • J: Sniffin' around?

  • R: UM...

  • R: I would like to vacuum before we move on to the next stage:

  • R: so the cats can't get all this sawdust stuck to their paws.

  • J: You just dropped the sawdust on him

  • R: I know, he's in the way ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • J: (cracking up)

  • J: You need to vacuum him now.

  • J: Vacuuming time~! Vacuuming!

  • R: Boi! BOII

  • J: That's not how you do it

  • R: He's so slippery--

  • R: (shouts) He's too long!

  • R: Hang on...

  • J: You're just picking a fight with him!

  • R: I know!

  • (so much laughter in this household, so pure)

  • R: He thinks we're fighting now!

  • J: He's like "scuse me MA'AM, WHAT DID I DO???"

  • R: I'm sorry I got you dirty through no fault of your own ಥ_ಥ
