Cats LOVE squeezing themselves into snug places. But you don’t have to spend money to buy “cat” houses or “cat” beds. (We’ve got 2 of that Ikea cat house that seems to be all the rage now. The ingrates were fascinated with it for a while, but like all cat fads, it faded, and now hardly anyone uses them. And in case you wonder, yes, we could not resist getting one when we chanced on them earlier this year, but we got two because the cats’ grammy says having only one will lead to squabbles)
Basically, anything snug will serve the cats’ fetish for snuggling. Even cardboxes, eg your wet cat food carton boxes, will do. Only thing is, the cats might take to flossing teeth with the box or wrestling it, so you can imagine how long the boxes last. So we went plastic – we got a few bins and stuff around the house – not to collect rain water, but to provide club amenities for the slackers. Here’s some of them.
Bams also wanted to show he can snug with the best of them
NOTE: Philly’s not got good pics of him snugging that giant tumtum of his in anything yet, but anything goes for him – basket, tub or whatever.
