I was camping out this morning in Shutterbug Sage’s blog and one of his posts was about pampered pups. I told him that his post reminded me of a home inspection I did a few years ago with one resident cat. Pampered for that cat is a severe understatement!
Here’s the cat:
One scratch pad or post was not good enough for this cat. She had one in every room!
She even had a combination bed and scratch post, with a view no less!
She had her own condominium tower:
Notice that she had two beds in her condo tower, but that’s not enough:
And behind curtain #1?
Another bed with a view:
Surprisingly there was only one dinner table:
And two litter toilets!
Now I think Zoey the Cool Cat is quite pampered and spoiled. But let’s look at the difference between thinking a cat is pampered and having the evidence that the cat truly is pampered. Following is how Zoey the Cool Cat has to live.
Her beds are newspapers, drawers, sacks, boxes, desks, and laundry baskets:
Her litter box is, well, a litter box, although she likes to kick most of the litter out of the box and onto the garage floor:
Her toys are red rings from the top of gallon milk jugs. She does have a lot of them, though; 152 at last count at April 1. We’ll find out tomorrow on cleaning day how many she has now.
But, hey, she does get to watch television, preferring tennis and golf. I guess the little ball flying across the screen gets her attention more so than footballs, basketballs, and soccer balls.
Now I ask you, which cat do you think is more pampered? Be careful how you answer if you want me to camp out in your blog anytime in the future.
