remind me to never spend time sewing a cat bed

Nuku Nuku's new bed
Our little kitties would much rather sleep in a ratty takeout box (our remnants of Thai food on the 4th of July - sacrilege really).

  3. I feel the same way about buying toys for Melody. She could play for hours with a empty discarded diaper box.

  4. Yup, my cats ignore their cat beds for boxes too! They get pretty annoyed with me when I chuck boxes in the recycling instead of letting them lay around hehe

  5. You just have to pretend that you're wearing the cat bed to a job interview - then they'll find it irresistible!
    And don't feel too bad about the Thai food. We had tacos on Canada Day. We wrote it off as celebrating our multicultural heritage. :-)

  6. I love the utterly stunned look on your kitty's face in these photos! my cats would much rather sleep on my pillow or my clothes than in the bed I knit for them back in the day. In fact, they loved it so much, one of them pooped in it, and that was the end of it.

  7. That is such a cute picture! Maybe the smell of the Thai food is appealing to them?

  8. Too cute! Maybe you need to sew a cat bed that looks like a cardboard box :)

  9. Too funny! Our cats will sometimes sleep in the dog beds - of course, I haven't made them any beds. But they do love cardboard boxes. However, one's favorite place is high up on top of the DirecTV receiver - she loves it.

  10. We put boxes in the cat room (spare bedroom) because they adore them! We've threatened to ship Edgar, kind of a return to sender idea with a surprise, but we just can't do without him. He dominates the boxes, and Lucy and Stinker have to wait until he tires of them before they can play. [Get off the keyboard, Edger!]

  13. Pets and kids -- they're really very much alike. I remember getting my kids a play kitchen set, but they preferred to bang on the real pots and pans. What a cute kitty you have.

  14. I donated my cat beds to the animal shelter because they never got used. When he's not sleeping on my quilts, Archie prefers boxes -- and I have to replace them every once in a while because he also likes to EAT them.
    Cute kitty!
