... so I stripped the bed and started re-making it. (I still have a LOT of stuff to do in this room, but I figured I'd start with the bed!)

I got the sheets on plus a velvety blanket, then went down to the basement to choose a bedding set, and when I get back, what do I find?



I mean, really, you can't even wait for me to FINISH?

That's Moggie (tortie but hard to tell in this photo!) and Berkeley. I took this photo yesterday and they have barely moved. Good thing my guest isn't due 'til tomorrow!

Too cute! What's stopping you from making the bed on top of them?

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

It was lovely of you to put fresh bedding on for them.

Funny how we feel guilty if we move them.

I have a similar problem. If I mess up and stay up past my bedtime, these guys go ahead and start without me... taking all the prime spots in the process. Yeah, I always feel a little guilty making them move, but they're usually right back up there with a short time. I'm always amazed just how crowded a queen-size bed can be.

I'm always amazed when I hear people say they don't allow their cat(s) on the bed. I mean what's the point of having a cat if you can't snuggle up with them? 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 usually make my bed completely with a fitted electric mattress pad, fitted sheet, flat sheet, blanket and comforter OVER 2 13 pounds each cats and one 75 pound dog.
The lumps leave eventually and the sheets can be straightened without unmaking the entire bed.

I keep our 3 out of my bedroom for a couple of reasons. First of all, I like one place that is hair free in the house, secondly, I like to get a good nights sleep, and thirdly, our cats come alive at night and are running around like little idiots. The few times I have let them into my room they were busy all night exploring and generally raising a ruckus, chasing each other around.

I love them, but I have to get up for work in the morning well rested.

Hmmm.....doesn't a "set" consist of two? Unless my old tired eyes are failing me, there is already a perfectly good matched "bedding set" already in place on the bed!!!! 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!!

It is part of their self assigned duties - share spare fur with those who have very limited amounts of it and keep their snuggle places war as they do not know how to properly bake biscuits.
