As I've mentioned before, Kitty is a bitch and doesn't get along with Puppy. So she lives happily sequestered in the master bedroom. Most days, we don't bother making the bed. Kitty tends to bury herself under the covers and I feel guilty taking away her happy place.
But a messy bed = a messy bedroom.
Not that I'm the best housekeeper. In fact, I really suck at it. The place only gets a good cleaning when we have company. Just ask The Husband. But once in a while I get on a bit of a tidy bender and need to be neat for a while. I'm in Tidy-Mode right now. So the bed is made every morning. Which pisses off Kitty even more.
When the bed is made, she tends to bury herself within the pile-o-pillows.
there's a little orange furball amongst all those pillows.
She peaks out to see what's going on.
I was napping you know.
Do you mind?!
She's SO cranky!
She's positively glaring at me.
Let's go see where Puppy sleeps.
Come with me to the den.
When we adopted Puppy, we were told that Greyhounds are often caged with newspapers, which they shred to make a bed. In order to transition to living in a home, they like to have blankets. So we dug out some old blankets. Which he seems to really love.
Puppy and I play the Blanket Game.
Before I go to bed, I fold his blankets into a pile and put his toys on top.
The multi-coloured thing-a-ma-bob on the left is the toy he came with. The hedgehog in the middle and the cow on the right are the toys we gave him when he came to live with us. He loves his toys. He moves them, one at a time, from one place to another every day. He starts out in the den, then takes them downstairs in the afternoon. Then back up again at night to sleep.
Over the course of the evening, he paws at the blankets and gets them into a comfortable position.
I wake up to this:
Once in a while, we let it go to see what will happen. The blankets usually end up halfway across the room. It can get out of control. So before I go to work, I tidy it up a bit.
You'll note that Mr. Hedgehog is AWOL.
He's probably waiting for Puppy downstairs.
So they can play their reindeer games.
