When I woke up with a mild ache in my back I was surprised. It couldn’t be my mattress, I reasoned. That’s new. Then it happened again. I examined my matress and found a faint hollow. I was shocked: my new mattress. then I tried to remember when I bought it, and realised it isn’t new at all. I looked up how often you should expect to replace a mattress. It seems my mattress, my new mattress, is well by its sell-by date.
I shall have to start researching to get a new one. Hopefully I can replace it with the same kind, one from Norris beds. If I am lucky, they may even still have my details. In the meantime, I shall be careful where I lie. It is still a million times more comfortable than this spot Cat chose to sleep in once.
Actually he looks fairly comfortable there. Nice and snug. One of the other pictures shows the plants sitting below the window, so I imagine I must have taken them out to clean.
When he wanted to stretch it was more problematic.
But he slept on.
I don’t know when it was. A good long time ago. There have been shelves under the windows for more than ten years.
It’s amazing how they can fit in tiny spaces when THEY want (and hog all of the bed when YOU don’t want!) 😀
Absolutely. It did make me smile to see those photos again. MasterB sat on my parsley plant the other day. It still looks deflated.
I feel warm just looking at him.
The brightness of his fur and the copper is a lovely combination isn’t it. My beautiful boy.
Remind you or yours?
no, just such evocative photos–I can imagine him oozing himself around to stretch, in slow motion…. so as not to disturb his nest….
They certainly bring back vivid memories of him. I love the way the light shines through his ears, and his little freckled nose. It’s nice to see his stripes again as well.
That made me smile. I love how cats shove themselves into nooks and crannies, almost as though to make a point that they can do it if they want to.
My bed is also “new” and also past replacement time. I keep putting it off, and last winter I bought a memory foam mattress cover. It’s not perfect, but I think it may have extended the life of my mattress by a year or two.
It reminds me of the Maru video when he is determined to get into the box, despite the fact it is much too small for him.
I have seen an organic mattress that looks interesting, but one question I want answered about it and other mattresses is where does the horsehair come from.
Ah, what a cutie. I hope your back feels better. I have to do daily stretches for mine not to hurt. Had a car accident many years ago and I’m still paying for it.
He was a complete darling. I think I may have mentioned that before…
My ache was only very slight. I want to act before it becomes a daily occurrence. Sorry about your back, but glad that stretches work for you.
Don’t you know that the best boxes for sleeping are the ones which are one size too small?
Oh silly me!
It’s a tight fit but he wears it well. His ginger self looks good in that shiny brass? box.. 🙂 We bought a new mattress less than a year ago. Felt fine at the store, not so good at home. It is one firm mattress! I would love to go back to a waterbed like we had years ago. Best sleep I ever had.
Copper with a brass trim. MasterB has not been able to investigate this as a sleeping place. I have had plants in it all the time he has been here.
MasterB, assuming he could fit in that copper box would really blend well. Cat’s white fuzz face and feetie is a lovely contrast.
He had lovely markings. Such a handsome boy.
Wow, soo cute!!
He was a big character Rexlin. Cute s not a word I should have used in his presence!
Just read your comment above! I really should read comments before I start typing………copper!
He looks extremely happy and comfortable, a cat in a nice sun oven 🙂
Sun oven! I like it. 🙂
oh! days ago my friend had the same with her Silo, she woke up, searched for him, and there he was sleeping in a box, but Silo’s bed was really more confortable than Cat’s bed 🙂
Blimey, she has an un-neutered Tom cat indoors? She’s brave, or has no sense of smell! Cat had some very nice beds, but he always preferred mine…
really didnt get the first part, but she wants more kittens, so neutering is not an option.
also, got a pic for silo on my friend’s bed too, he was very confortable covering himself with every thing
Intact Tom cats usually smell quite pungent.
I do hope your friend reconsiders neutering Silo, there are so many unwanted and abandoned cats, or is Lebanon the exception?
