Okay, this is Percy with a bulletin for Jan: If you didn't want claw holes in your new recliner, you should have picked one that doesn't show the holes. Because, Jan, you KNOW I'm going to check it out, test it and CLIMB IT! The claw holes don't bother me, they don't bother the other Funny Farmers, so what's your problem with them?
Yes, you guessed right. We finally made a unanimous choice. We all agreed to get a recliner chair for Jan, thinking - erroneously! - that she would share it with all of us. But she only shares it with us kitties. Buddy, Merci & Sam are threatening to send back their share of the chair and let her sit on the floor with them. But we kitties don't want to let it go.
Cyndi and Sam check out the chair after it's been assembled. Jan says this is the easiest piece of furniture she's ever put together. And you know what a klutz she is!
Shhh, Sam, I wasn't going to tell everyone that Jan didn't put it together, her brother did. I was trying to be nice. But I don't blame you for tattling since she won't share with you. So what if you weigh more than the chair does? One of the things Jan likes about this chair is that it is fairly lightweight and she can move it easily around the room.
Notice who claimed the biggest part of the chair? Rusty, the biggest cat. He thinks Jan put that cushion there just for him. She actually put it there to protect the chair from us. Sheeeesh, as if ....
Now this is the perfect spot for a cold winter evening. As soon as Jan sat down and threw a blanket over her legs, I made my move. The other cats cuddle too but not when Jan has a camera in her hand. If you notice, Sam is standing to the left and Buddy is looking forlorn on his bedding on the floor. They really want to share the chair too.
This is what the chair looks like at the moment. Jan hung a blanket over the back and I did what any self-respecting cat would do - I climbed the back under the blanket. Oops, more claw holes. The pink behind the chair is a sheet over the small couch. She finally gave up on pinning that together. I always managed to get underneath and climb the back.
So now there is a quilt hung over the chair, with the bottom end tucked through between the top and bottom cushions, and pinned in the front. It's a bit lopsided from Her Majesty who exiled the dogs from the new chair reclining in it, but this is only temporary. We've been told there's a giant towel headed this way to use to make a cover. Don't worry, I'll find a way under it. I'm a cat!
So what does Jan think of our present? She sat down in it when I started typing. Jan, in one or two words, how would you describe this chair?
Thanks, Jan. We're glad it has your snooze of approval. As your friend Pat suggested, perhaps you should just let us have the bed and you sleep in the chair.
We're sad for the family of Pablo. They have lost their special kitty and will miss him very much. You can leave a comment for his family on Pablo's blog.
Laila & Minchie lost their cousin Bonnie. Their mom was there to help her niece bring Bonnie home as well as to send her off to the bridge. They, too, are sad.
There are a number of sick cats posted on the Cat Blogosphere, including a couple of our senior gal pals, Momo and Sweet Praline.We hope they will both be okay. Thankfully, there is also a lot of good news posted on the CB too.
And Asta has a plea on her blog for her friend Oliver from the dog run. Oliver's mom will be moving to Germany and will not be allowed to take her pit bull mix because of German laws. So Oliver is in need of a new home.
