I’m trying out textures today.
Top: I paid $11 for this scratching post but perhaps the cats in this house think it was a cheap gift. They give it a scornful look as they sashay past it to scratch the banister instead.
Bottom: When my daughter was three, she asked for a purple blanket for Christmas. Her wish was granted by my sister, who brought her this fabulous fuzzy throw. It’s the kind of blanket that makes perpetually cold people (like me) want to steal it from their children. (The tomcat likes to nestle in it, too. He probably thinks it was a better gift than the stupid scratching post.)
