Okay, so you know now that we use a garbage bin (clean, never been used for any other purpose) as a hamper. If you missed it visit last Friday’s post for why.
Now, when I do laundry I put the ‘next load’ in the upside down lid and use that as a basket, since all our baskets are usually full. Occasionally I’ll lose track of time and not get to that next load.
Well, the cats have noticed this, (okay I give, it happens a bit more than occasionally) and taken to sleeping on the upside down laundry filled lid.Belle is the one who started it, and at one point or another I have seen all of them take their turn in the ‘laundry bed’.
Lately, Pete has been spending the most time in it. I guess he likes the fact that he doesn’t have to share it with a dog, unlike our bed or the couch.
On one of the days where I had COMPLETELY caught up on laundry and our hamper looked like this:Pete started throwing a fit! He followed me around the house meowing his typical disgruntled meow, and when I asked him what was wrong this time, he ran towards the room. Okay, I though he just wanted to be pet and roll on the bed, so I followed.
He jumped on the bed, sat on the corner closest to the hamper, and continued to meow. I tried to pet him but he ignored my attempts to love on him and started pacing in circles on the corner of the bed while looking at the hamper.
That is when I realized what he wanted. He wanted the lid inverted so he could sleep on it!
So I flipped the lid and he jumped right on it, but he didn’t settle down. He continued to circle and meow.
I couldn’t believe it, he wanted a cushion!
Kevin had a pullover that he said needed washing so we tossed that on the inverted lid and Pete settled down immediately and started purring! The little rascal!
Please tell me I’m not the only one out there that has this demanding of a cat! I’d love to hear the hoops you have to jump through for your cat.
