I guess you really can get used to anything, because it's been going rather well, this shifting and herding of cats. Except for one episode last week, when I was careless and let Dolly out of a room before I knew where Tootsie was. Before we knew it, she had Dolly pinned down on the living room floor.
a favorite spot - on top of the fridge
There is a nice, thick chair pad on a Windsor chair in a corner of the living room, and Dolly will often sleep there. One day, when it was time to put her in a bedroom so Tootsie could come up, I got the bright idea to take her, cushion and all, into the room.
It is perfectly Dolly-sized, and she absolutely loves it. Most of the time, she'll stay on it, wherever you place it. I take her in my brother's room - she stays and sleeps on it. I bring her out and onto the living room window sill, and she stays there, too.
You know how cats like be on a defined space? Well, if it's also comfy, so much the better!
This cushion is our saving grace lately. And we've passed the halfway mark. Two and a half weeks to go.
