There are many comfy spots to sleep in around our house. There's sun puddles most of the day, and all the kitty pillows on the beds. But the bestest place to sleep doesn't exist anymore. A mean and cold hearted mom took them away two years ago. Our homemade kitty ham-micks are now only a pleasant memory.
When I was a kitten I loved to shred things. I guess I never did outgrow that love. One of the best things to shred was the underside of the box springs on the bed. I would lie on my back and scratch away. Many happy hours were spent blissfully shredding the netting and tearing away the stuffing inside the bed. What lovely days those were!
When the holes were big enough, kitties could fit inside the netting and, at last, even the bed. Those bed netting ham-micks were so sweet! Soon the other kitties were sleeping in them too. What delightful dreams we had, and in so cozy a location!
Eventually I dug clear through to the top side of the mattress. The holes weren't THAT big, I mean, I couldn't fit through them, but these really big springs with sharp points did. First there was one, then another, and then another. The mom couldn't flip the mattress over, cause guess why! The holes were even bigger on that side!
Although I didn't give it much thought, I should have known the mom didn't want to pick up all those pieces of stuffing. Even worse, she didn't like sleeping with those points sticking in her. She decided to destroy our utopia and buy a new bed when she had to sleep bent like an "L" with her body across the short side of the mattress and her legs pointing up to the headboard. But she had to wait for a tax return. Ok, whatever THAT is. Unfortunately for us it must have come quickly.
The most nefarious part of the plan was a nasty shock! She put down sheets of plywood under the box springs! How she lives with herself I am still trying to figure out. And she did the same thing to The Girl's new bed too! I tried scratching those sheets of wood and they were not pleasant or enjoyable.
So now we have to sleep on the top of the beds, not on the underside or the inside. Gone are the days when you could look under the bed and see a couple kitty lumps hanging down in the netting, snoozing contentedly.
Everyone have a great weekend!
