Someone else decided this was The Perfect Spot! Of course she did. What cat wouldn't!
But the thing is.. Do any of you have a digital camera that takes forEVER to open and get ready to take a picture? Are they all this way? And does yours make a big noise as the lens comes out so the kitties know you're about to start flashing away? Do you ever want to scream at your camera??
This is why I only have two pictures of Star and the bag on the basket. sigh Well, that and she didn't stay in there very long on her initial exploration.
Hmm, the bag covers the towels, but now I have the best of both worlds. Baggy goodness and softy soft bed basket. I give it a 9 out of 10. It has that recent barbarian smell or it would score better..
I believe I'll come back later to truly enjoy this wonderful bed bag combo that I'm sure dad created just for me. He loves me so much!
Did you notice the handles? Oh the handles.. That I forgot to cut.. on this most attractive cat magnet.. Do you see it coming? I should have. Not like it hasn't happened before.. Not like I wasn't warned before..
I think it was the next time that Star got into the bag on a basket that she wriggled around a little too much. See how it's at the far end of the basket, not really protecting all the towels anyway! Well, she rolled her little self right into the back of the bag and it slowly tipped over and stood up straight on the end table next to the chair.
Did Stat panic? Maybe a little.. But before I could even register what was happening, she reached out of the bag to grab the back of the chair to pull herself out of the bag. Did she go over the handles? Beside them? Oh come now, you have cats, right? You know she did not!
She went right through the handle, and being a petite little thing, she managed to get out of the bag and up the back of the chair. Most of her anyway.. Her back end got stuck.
"Does this bag make my butt look big?" *
Ok, that probably wasn't her first thought. Her first thought was "GET THIS THING OFF ME!" so she 'jumped' down onto the basket, but that didn't free her. So she jumped down to the floor, but that didn't free her. So she dived under the chair. That did free her because the bag got stuck on the front of the chair! Whew!
So now the bag has been relieved of it's handles and resides on the floor where it gets plenty of use every day. Star loves to dive into it in the dead of night and thrash around so everyone wakes up and knows she's playful!
Leo likes to get in it and think about ambushing, but he's not quite brave enough to actually jump out.
And the basket of clean towels? Well daddy didn't want to get rid of somewhere HIS girl liked sleeping, so he put a quilt on it and smooshed a little indentation into it and she loves loves loves to sleep on it.
...I think we're going to have to start using paper towels for bath towels...
*No, her butt does not look big. In fact, after some minor health issues over the winter I think she is now down below her usual petite 6 pounds. We are trying to fatten her up just a little and she's in heaven with the extra snacks and treats.
