Bobbles is involved from the beginning and gets made into the bed under the fitted sheet!

The lumps leave eventually and the sheets can be straightened without unmaking the entire bed.
lol, it never occurred to me to try this ... but next time I will!

I know ... how silly is this? I finally got over my guilt feelings when I realized that even if I move them and they MEOW in protest, about 10 seconds later they are back.

And how do you keep a cat out of the bed anyway? On the occasions I've been away from home for more than a night or two I get so homesick for the warm snuggly cat in bed with me. It's so comforting to know you are being protected and watched over by a loving cat.
I sleep with only one of mine (Gretel) -- if I were to leave the master bedroom door open, the kitties would be in and out all night and that is not conducive to sleep. Sometimes Hansel comes in to join his twin sister when I am getting ready for bed, but he never wants to stay all night.

I do find it comforting to have a little creature in bed with me. When my SO is up (he doesn't live in NH) Gretel always seems to want to snuggle with him. He's a cat lover too and I think she knows that!

I think in catspeak they are tellin' ya...you're FINISHED!! We've already made this bed, and it's ours!! It's their job to help, and they're hard at work here - I think there's even a union or something. You should check - I bet you owe them food or something for all that hard work. Probably overtime on the weekends...
PS...I love the headboard!!! Have a wonderful visit with your guest!!
Thanks Candace! Happy holidays to you and yours (all of 'em!)!

I am going to be off CD for a few days ... hope everyone has a wonderful holiday.

Karen, you need to buy them a bed, or at least make this bed with fresh sheets on a daily basis for the cats.

Really, you are so lucky to have this matched set of "Bed Ends" on each side, of the bed, they obviously serve a purpose, to make sure humans do not fall out of the bed. And keep the covers down. Good cats!

Jeez. I do not understand what is wrong with people. They just don't seem to understand beds are made for cats, as are pillows and blankets. Orion's favorite game is sheet diving. He also gets very annoyed and refuses to sleep on his bed, which he allows me to share, if the linen is not changed on schedule. Tsk, he must keep his human in line and it is a difficult task for sure!
