The Most Interesting Cat in the World Sleeps in a Dog Bed

I don't always sleep in a pet bed, but when I do, I make sure it's the dog's.

Where my cat Calvin sleeps:

I can’t imagine any of those places are comfortable. So, kind-hearted pet mom that I am, I buy cat beds for Calvin and the other cats.

Yet the beds are ignored. Until I finally give up and figure no cat will ever use one to curl up in comfy slumber.

And then they start using it.

Like the time I bought a Cat Ball. Elsa Clair, Calvin and Athena walked through it, inspected it and seemed to approve it. But nobody slept in it. I put catnip it in. Nobody slept in it. I moved it around the house. Nobody slept in it. I gave up. And now it’s Elsa Clair’s favorite bed, particularly when it’s cold.

It’s not that they don’t like plush beds. The Cat Ball is soft and squishy. So is my lap. A pile of folded clothes. And a dog bed.

So I have given up figuring out what my cats want to sleep in or on. I just make sure I have enough places–and enough of a variety–of pet beds (and human beds and couches), so that everyone–cat, dog and human–can find the perfect spot to snooze.

Where do your pets sleep?

    Cats seem to be partial to dog beds if YouTube videos are any indication. We have a few beds that we particularly like. Some of them don’t get used until it gets cold. Mostly, we just want to be where our humans are. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  4. Me likes mommy’s lap bestest… Lil Bear likes boxes… da rest like Uncle Mike’s bed… mol. -Doobie, the big fat lap cat.
