Cats and Beds

One would think, we should have two beds on the wide sunny window sill for two cats, right?
In their inscrutable way, here are our Mickey Mouser and Rufus the Red contemplating the unpopular red plush bed.

We’ve tried rubbing the new bed with the old one to transfer the scent. We’ve tried washing them and re-arranging them.
Have you encountered this problem? If you have cats, of course you have!

And, speaking of beds, here’s a plump and beautiful Pumpkin burrito.
This morning at PAWS, Pumpkin decided to ignore her nice cat bed and crawl into a towel for a nap.
Volunteers and staff love Pumpkin! She is a sweet cat, once she gets to know you. I sure hope someone comes soon who will take the time.

    Rufus and Mickey Mouser are so adorable together! But that poor ignored red plush bed, LOL! Yes, we’ve encountered the same issue, hahaha 🙂
    It’s hard to believe Pumpkin is still waiting. Purr for her finding forever home real soon xoxo

    We like to sleep right next to the bed instead of it in. Go figure! Purrs that Pumpkin finds a home real soon.

    The cat bed preference is definitely a conundrum. Some of ours know exactly what bed they like (or is theirs) and go right to it. Others like to play musical beds. We were having so much competition for the SleepyPod that we had to order another one. Both are occupied about 90 percent of the time. Looks as if Rufus is going to smother Mickey. Does Mickey ever get the upper paw? XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

    You might try spending a little time with that bed yourself. Sit on it, lay on it, carry it around. It might be your scent that makes your cute cats to give it a try. Or maybe they’ll just want it because you have it. 😉

    Mickey Mouser and Rufus are doing what cats do. Such a mystery to us humans. 😉

    We love Pumpkin. LOVE.

    It breaks my heart to see that Pumpkin is still at PAWS. I am thankful though as well, because I know she’s receiving the very best care. We love the bed stand-off … what self-respecting cat would want a bed that his sibling doesn’t want?

  • Reply Ellen Pilch March 22, 2017 at 3:15 pm

    Such cuties. Maybe if you put a towel or small blankie in the bed, someone will use it.

  • Reply Robin March 22, 2017 at 6:08 pm

    Awww! So cute. These kitties look super comfy. I hope that they all enjoyed their naps. 🙂

    Isn’t that funny? My only advice: Don’t give up! I have beds that were unpopular for YEARS which suddenly became the primo napping spot. It could still happen.
