Gobi peers out his cat portal

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Gobi has his own porthole to the outdoors. The mini porthole window and nautical equipment are finds from Second Wave.
Erin Lang Norris added this to Say Ahoy to Porthole Style at Home
In case you didn’t notice the tiny window at the bottom of the Nautilus Studio door in the previous photo, here’s a closer look. This is Gobi peering out his very own porthole.Buying tips: If you are looking for a true functioning porthole that you can use as an exterior window, your best bet is to order directly from a marine supplier, such as Trinity Marine in the U.K. (Finding one from a traditional window supplier may be a challenge.) The great part about buying from a marine supplier is that the porthole is guaranteed to be waterproof. A contractor can help install it. If you want an antique, you can search on eBay, but be sure that what you’re considering purchasing will fit your needs. Also, note that many antiques are not waterproof, so an interior setting may be best.More: Find porthole mirrors and more in the Product section

Every cat owner knows that cats rule, OK? So a boring old cat door is out of the question.An original mind with a great sense of humor saw the potential in an old ship’s porthole and gave the family cat, Gobi, a witty way to go in and out. A friend of mine has adorned her cat door with a gorgeous over-the-top picture frame — fitting for her uppity cat.Geek Lab: How to Build a Steampunk Cat Transit System
