This is my first time incubating while being the patient owner of an indoor cat. Usually I incubate on the kitchen counter or down in the basement, but both spots have been too cold and drafty. So it's set up on the pub-height dining table that's in a corner of the room, that is draft free and near a power outlet. It's the only spot in the whole house that has power without a draft. I have this mental image of Bubba-Chunk, great cat that he is, hearing the peeps at lockdown time, grabbing the power cord in frustration, because he can't jump on the table to have a look-see. He's declawed, so his leaps are limited. As a precaution I'm going to duct tape the power cord to the table leg. My dogs don't do anything but look at the box with a crooked ear. But the cat.. how curious will he get? He is a mighty cricket hunter in the basement and cries to be let down there. Do you think he'd cry for these peepers? We're still getting to know this cat, he's a 5 year old pound kitty we got just a couple months ago. He's a love... but he's still a cat. When he's tired of the dogs he sits under the table inside the circle of chairs. He'll hear peeping for sure. What's your experience in how cats react to the noise? I have this thought that I'll come down one morning to eggs all over the floor where he's gotten into the incubator. I'm going to leave all the chairs pushed in so that he shouldn't be able to get a way up. They're straight backed and fit the table snugly.
