Here she is all snuggled inside. She likes having it partially covered to keep out some of the light & make it even warmer. Well, I have to tell you that 5+ years of constant "kitty-ishness" in that bed had made it pretty gross. The Man would take it & vacuum it with the shop vac, but I didn't see how she could be without it long enough to wash & let it air dry. We considered replacing it, but the company no longer made this kind. Big dilemma, right?
Well, while on a run to PetsMart for food, I discovered this. All pink & fuzzy & soft, just perfect! Ya'll also have to know that Abby does not do change very well. Maybe all cats are extreme creatures of habit, I don't know; but our Little Miss certainly is one. So we weren't sure if she would even like the new bed.
We brought it in & put it right beside the old one. Abby immediately came & proceeded to give it the old "sniff" test from back to front & top to bottom.......
and inside, too. This was repeated several times, ya know, just incase some other kitty had set paws inside.
The final result was a big "paws up" & a look that queried the question "Why did it take you guys so long to get me a new bed?"
Yep, kitty-life around here is pretty darn sweet! Oh, by-the-way, I did wash the old one & it is now air-drying. It will be our backup & for sure the one that goes to the kennel.
Hope you enjoyed a glimpse into kitty parenting around here. Hope you come by again soon.
