Pick of the Litter
Sep 13th, 2023
OK, so I bought waaay too many cat beds. Six? All different styles: hang on the window, hang on the wall, freestanding, fuzzy, cave, this one. Of all of them, this is the one my cat loves the most. The curved cup is perfect for curling up, and she sunbathes in it most mornings after breakfast. It's not so big that it's obtrusive, but plenty of room for her to relax. As a bonus, it looks groovy in a mid-century house. Putting it together took all of two minutes. One note: it came with a little capsule of catnip, and I thought that might help her get interested in the chair. In fact, what it did was make her fully-ears-back lose her mind, and scratch me, something she never does. I had to wash the wool liner with soap to get the catnip traces out so that she wouldn't become a demon cat every time she sat there. We took to calling it "the crazy chair" until the scent wore off (as in, "Kids, don't touch the cat, she's in the crazy chair"). By now it's great. Really the only chair we needed to buy.
