Someone Grateful

When having a quick visit to IKEA - which really isn't a favourite hangout for me, unless on the occasional Friday evening, when people for some reason seem to have other things to do than IKEA-shopping... - before Christmas, I stumbled over the perfect gift for the kitties. A big orange fluff of a pillow. What's not to like?

So it promptly came home with me - along with yet another bookshelf. I really don't know what it is about the books, multiplying like rabbits they are, constantly demanding new shelves... - sneaked it inside, not wanting to spoil the sight of sparkling kitty eyes on Christmas Eve.

Came Christmas Eve, I sprung the fluffy delight on them - and really, it was kind of like last year, and that ungrateful loaf doggie and his Fat Boy, but this year some of them seemed even harish at the sight of the delightful, soft, lovely, lurid pillow fluff. Sniff.

Malte liked this pillow though, always pulling it down on the floor, tearing a bit too much at it, so I had to put it somewhere that little tyke couldn't get a hold of it. And then, at last, it happened, someone else discovered it's fluffy, orange loveliness, the grateful one, the one that from that point hardly ever leaves that spot since that would mean risking someone else occupying it. Is this a pleased kitty face, or what... -

Fabulous pillow! May just have to get me one of those...
Happy New Year to you!

That is a happy pussycat face. Cats always love something squishy to cuddle next to.

Even though it is hot here - i still loves my polar fleece blanky.

That does indeed look like a content kitty!
I often find that my cats are not much interested in anything bought especially for them unless it is food related. They are a stubborn bunch, give them a cardboard box, a plastic ring from a juice bottle and a plastic bag and they are in cat heaven!

Thanks, Wendy, and the same to you! The pillow is to be found in the pet-section at IKEA. I guess it's suppose to look like a giant, dead rat with ears, eyes and a tail - but basically it's just a big fluff:)

Thanks for stopping by, Poppy!

And oh yes, that's true, holler, they're often quite happy with a simple thing to play with - the gifts I suspect we buy for ourselves really...
