Bedding Down

Today we were at Big Lots, and happened to see a shelf full of marked down cat beds. They had some that were just the right size, and also matched our furniture. So we bought one. The cats loved it. They BOTH loved it. And they started arguing over it, each one wanting to lay in it.



Back to Big Lots we go. It had only been about an hour, but there was only ONE bed left! We buy the bed and come home. We put it in Simba's hiding place under the end table. He sleeps there ever since the big fireworks incident. He tried it out for a few minutes.
Then he went right back to the first bed, so they are still arguing over the first bed and ignoring the other one! They both want the same bed! I'm getting sleepy now...

“The bed is a bundle of paradoxes: we go to it with reluctance, yet we quit it with regret; we make up our minds every night to leave it early, but we make up our bodies every morning to keep it late.”
Charles Caleb Colton

“Og king of Bashan was the last remaining Rephaite. His bed, made of iron, was over thirteen feet long and six wide.

No question, your kitties like their new beds. I never had a cat, just dogs. Trust all is well with you.

EG CameraGirl said...

Sweet kitties in the end. :)

Oh they are all set now! Glad you were able to get the last one.

What delightful, beautiful kitties!

Exactly where we buy all our dog beds---our Peke gets a near-shave every Spring, with just a funny little toupee left on top, and a lion's brush on the tip of his tail. But he SHEDS all the other months, and at $4.98 at Big Lots for his size beds, we buy four or six at a time.
There are three in use right now---one upstairs, and two down.

We DID take him in on a temporary basis five years ago, from our kids, who could only take TWO pets on TDY, and I think he's been enormously happy here, with only him to set the rules and use the toys and beds. And no other dogs in the house whose mouths could encompass his whole head and used HIM for a chew toy.

Cats are a lot like children...they both want the same thing and the same attention from the parents/toys.

Tamago said...

LOL that's too funny! It looks exactly the same bed...yet they want the first one. Maybe it looks better when someone is in it? :-) My boys don't use this kind (=comfy and pretty) of kitty bed. They ignore it and sleep on a towel. Oh why...

That sounds about right, you can't make a cat do what it doesn't want to. Love the new header.

Betsy Adams said...

Hmmmmmm---silly kitties... They must bring you and Phil hours and hours of entertainment!!!! Are the two beds alike??? Trying swapping the beds and see what happens...

Don't think I'd want to sleep on a bed of IRON, do you?

Hugs,
Betsy

Hi Ginny, Just give up - it's a cat thing. Have a super good day today. I so enjoy your wonderful blog!

Tanya Breese said...

Eva Ason said...

Cats are so funny at times, not much you can do about it really

Linda P said...

Isn't that funny? That is a dilemma. Both cats want the same bed.

S. Etole said...

So typical of human behavior at times. Such pretty cats.

Small Kucing said...

meow...me lovey

SquirrelQueen said...

How funny but typical cat behavior. There are several cat beds at our house but the cats would rather sleep on the bed in the guest bedroom or the sofa.

M. E. Stephens said...

This made me laugh out loud - literally! Thanks for a good laugh tonight. :-) Just like a couple of jealous kids.

Your cats are pretty. We have one gray marbled cat.
