It’s been cold lately, and even though she has a thick fur coat, the dog refuses to understand that she is only allowed on the couch when she is invited. She’s been in a slow shed since about August, so is definitely not welcome on my awesome couch.
After I caught her sneaking up there while I was still home, I started leaving things in the way so she would take the damn hint. Sometimes it would be a random ladder that was to hand (what, you don’t have ladders just leaning around in your living room?), but lately it has been a couple of empty boxes.
Of course, the cats were in ecstasy that I had boxes just leaning around in my living room. But it got better when I put them on the couch. Double the fun!
This morning I had another brilliant idea. I tucked a corner of the blanket that lives on the couch into the box before I left for work. Nine hours later, I come home and iDJ immediately asks me, “Guess where Spotty is?”
I have turned Spot into the happiest cat in Ireland.
Laser-eyes courtesy of the iPhone flash: needed as it is lovely and dark and warm and soft in the box now.
Poor doggy. He must be soooooo jealous! Lookout! Lovely throw btw! xx
My best friend made that blanket for me! It’s HUGE! Perfect colours, and so warm! The dog’s a she, and she’s welcome back any time the shedding quits!
Haha, you haven’t seen shedding til you’ve seen a great Pyr. drop her coat ALL yr. round. Oy! Especially in spring… I NEVER wear black! 😉
Perfect for the kitty laser beam show…..love it 🙂
He does have the lights on High!
Sure does haahahaha 🙂
Aw, Spottie Pants. He’s in bliss. Boxes are awesome!
I have boxes at work that I can fit into, too – and yep, I can’t resist!
Several years ago, as I was about to move out, someone had a good thought for me and brought me boxes from his work place. That person must had never moved before though. These were very large boxes, made of heavy, thick cardboard, obviously designed to move large machinery parts. Unusable to move out (unless you own a lift fork), but I don’t know any human being who couldn’t get in these, comfortably. You would have loved these.
I might have moved them just so I could play in them 🙂 We have boxes for power-scooters and entire hospital beds. Yes, I do hide in them and jump out at coworkers….
My god, I’m a cat.
More like a lioness 🙂
I’d love to see the reactions on your coworkers!!
I think they are on to me, now. Maybe if I had some claws… I’m sure at least one of the men would scream!
Look at that lovely cat smile!
