I keep this old duvet cover at one end of my couch because it’s one of Cup’s favorite napping places, she’s a black cat, she’d sheds and, well, you get the picture. (Fortunately it also matches my color scheme.) But Cup lays on top of the blanket. So I have no clue as to how Stanley managed to wrap herself completely up like this. It was like someone tucked her in, but she did it herself. I cracked up laughing. Oh, the marvels of my little girl.
This is why pets are awesome. You can spend a so-so summer day doing chores and feeling, well, so-so, and then a laugh and a smile comes out of nowhere. 🙂
On the coffee table in my living room I have, among other things (it’s a big table) some candles, a decorative box, a stack of tile coasters and a beautiful bowl (made by own mom, an amazing potterer…potterist?) Anyway, sometimes I also have this:
Can’t rest your coffee on it, or scent a room, but it sure is adorable!
Stanley has her numerous favorite sleeping spots, but today she found a new one. This blanket is on my bed not because it’s needed or particularly decorative but because — yes — the cats like it and adopted it from the day I first used it, um, 3 years ago.
It fell halfway to the floor last night, and I obviously haven’t made the bed today. But when I went to straighten up a little, I found this:
So, things will remain unchanged until nap time is over 🙂
OK, I’m a pet owner. Therefore, by definition, I’m a sucker 🙂 I took away this one plant from Cup, but felt bad tonight so gave her a little taste. But I don’t think she wanted to be caught here again, so she didn’t let me get a pic.
However, the Marilyn Monroe of cats, Stanley, obliged by showing off how good she is about not eating the summer decor. Thanks baby.
Still on her favorite seat, being good (sorry for blurry pic).
She even ignores the tomato plant! (Then again, in fairness, so does Cup.)
