Our cats have it sooooo rough...






We fold our laundry and sort on our bed. I use to have a laundry room with a large enough surface to do this but no longer so the bed has become the place. And it has been Goof's favorite place to take a nap. As soon as the first load is down on the bed, he carefully selects an area where he can shed on the most dark clothes as possible yet still surround himself with my underwear (the cat has a fetish for shoes too btw). He burrows in to the warm clothes, pulling them over on himself, arranging them to his pleasure and then spend the majority of the day doing everything in his power to keep us from putting the clothes away. He has sharp claws which aid him in his defense of his 'fortress'. I finally resorted to the no fail way of making him move...I put ice in his water dish and rattled the food bag in the kitchen. By the time he was done chowing down, I had things put away. I wish I had taken a picture of the look he gave me when he discovered my misdeed...not a pretty sight.

We've got a ride, my WW meeting, some yard work (my roses are going ballistic), and a swim on our agenda. I am reading a great book by Greg Iles called Blood Memory and can read that on my raft.

I have to make a Fed EX run either today or tomorrow. I need to get Kath her MoJo sauce, Chris her stuff from CHA and send off some things a former guest left here as we have bought pullout bins for under the guest room bed and these other things are taking up that space.

Off and running (er, ah biking...way to hot today to run...suppose to feel like 100 before long). Hope your day is a good one.

Sounds like a busy day ahead for you. I'll be back in the Fl heat in a few days.
Bob said we need to get together so Gene and him can plan their next cooking and waiting on us day.

oh Blood Memories is the best book he has written. It was the 1st book I read of his and I was hooked. And to think I was sitting next to a girl at the salon getting my hair done and she was reading it. So I struck up a conversation about it.

I have to say, I have a cat, Smokey Joe, that looks like Goof's doppleganger. And the funny thing is, he loves the warm laundry clothes, shoes etc... they sound identical.

My cats are about the same! We also fold on the bed and they love it. When Dayna still lived at home, her cat, Alley would jump right in the dryer when it was done. I'd find her there every time I turned my back!

my cats LOVE to play 'TOASTY CLOTHES' That's what we call it. I must admit my least favorite thing is putting away the laundry, so it's a perfect excuse NOT to do it!
