Cat Bed

Cat Bed by Princess Cat

I found a new cat bed. It’s right beside the back door.

When it was raining and raining and raining a while back, the human put this big towel beside the back door, so she could clean Fanta’s paws with it when she came in.

The human didn’t realise that the towel would make a perfect place to keep my mouse toys, but I did.  I collected my mice and put them on the towel.  My mice don’t have tails any more, they fell off while I was playing with them, but they’re still good toys.

Then I decided to play on the towel with my mice.

That’s when I found the towel made a great cat bed.  I could stretch out on it, or I could scrunch it up and curl up on the scrunched up towel.

The human says a scrunched up towel behind the back door makes it hard to open, but she isn’t taking my towel away.  She just spreads it out nicely for me again, because she knows I like it.

She could have taken it away to make it easier to open the door, but was being good to me.  I think I’ll give her extra snuggles for that. 

Princess, a sealpoint ragdoll cat.


Princess is a seal-point ragdoll cat. Her hobbies include naps, waking the human in the middle of the night, tummy tickles, knocking things off shelves, evading grooming, and petty theft (stealing paintbrushes, pincushions, etc.) Her special skills include jingle ball and fluffy mouse chasing. Her key goal in life is to be adored by everyone, but not actually touched unless she specifically requests it. She is never allowed outside, partly to protect wildlife, partly to keep debris out of her hair, and mostly because she is so naïve she wouldn’t survive five minutes outside. Also known as Pretty Kitty and Snuggle Cat.
