When one talks about Maine winters, remember the machine shop is heated.

When you come for the other RR stuff, we have a better Cat House than
pictured. It is made for MN minus 40* winters. I have seen 19 cats come out.
With only one cat a light bulb would be all that is needed. A fastidious cat would be
neither greasy or coal covered. The cat has to have the right personality.

1 of ours would be too friendly - approaching  everyone and riding our shoulders when inconvenient.
2 do not like anyone other than my wife & I.
1 would always be under foot.
And one just does not care - you would only see her at supper.

With a litter box cats can stay in in winter - and with a self feeder can be on their own several days at a time.

You just have to get the personality mix right.

It should be noted that we have a no pet policy so we would be in violation of our own rules. Keith is correct about allergies and the like. I would make an exception, however, for a panda or koala.

A reminder of the '60s most hilarious TV cartoon series...Rockie & Bullwinkle & Friends, which used then-current news, such as early Sputnik and Soviet politics to parody those themes, but cleverly managed to keep those adult issues  interwoven with  child-enjoyed bad jokes and other silliness.
 I see villain Snidely Whiplash represented.

The Moose & Squirrel come from Frost Bite Falls MINNESOTA. "Don't you know" you bet.

A bunny... They are trainable and would make a clean and interesting and calming pet. Not to mention different.
Our house rabbit is like cats and dogs would be to other people.

Its amazing the personalities they have.  ;D

Along the lines of the subject of this thread, here's an idea for a special train event at WW&F
