Mastering the Art of Getting Along


Lucky and Smoky

Somehow these two cats have managed to snuggle into this box together. Usually, it begins with one in the box - sound asleep. The other comes up & sees it is already occupied. Then the ritual  begins. A certain amount of licking takes place which seems to be the ticket for getting to share this apparently highly desirable spot.

Rag Rugs, Cats and Creature Comforts

Lucky and Smoky
 Today my brand new Rag Rug arrived in the mail and I laid it out on the kitchen table to enjoy it's beauty before placing it in the upstairs bathroom. What followed was certainly very predictable! As cats go though, they will use it for several days and then move on to another favorite spot. I can wait. And if you should happen to be in the market for a rag rug for yourself or as a hostess gift then you will definitely want to check out my source in the the Rag Rug section of  PonderosaQuilter's etsy store. Her rugs are eco-friendly; she has quality products and good workmanship. Enough said! Check it out for yourself. You'll be glad you did!
