Another Tarp Convert

Covering an area of about 9 foot by 9 foot, the Mountain Laurel Design Spinntex Mid is a winner with my parents' cat. Dry inside, when i open the door, some water drips in. There were some big flies inside, lurking at the top, but no midges. I'd still not trust it without a net during the season . As for ticks, i'm not sure if they get under the integrated edging nets. I've taken the tarp in overnight, and want to see how it copes with strong winds.

LOL - I was referring to 'Flick', the cat. I'm sure it sees this as one big bird-trap. Flies get trapped inside, birds go for the flies, cat attacks birds.

Flick seems to be enjoying herself. She could be the non-human tester for tents and their fly-resistence. A butterfly zoomed round my kitchen on Sunday and nearly gave me a heartattack, luckiy it found its way back out the wide open window!

It was a Tortoiseshell too!
