Shelf Life

So, my humans tell me the room I’ve been hangin’ out in lately is going to become a “kids room” in the near future.

I’m not sure how I feel about that idea yet.

A) Kids are wild & crazy. I prefer quiet & calm. Wild and crazy makes me nervous…

And B) Converting my hangout into a kids room probably means the shelf/coat rack I’ve been calling a bed lately will no longer live on the floor…

I’m really gonna miss my pokey pegs…

Except for that one in the back…

That one makes me nervous too.

    Very cute. I am new to your blog. Where are you guys in the adoption process? I have two adopted sons, a one and a 2 year old, and I have to admit that our poor dogs have been kicked out of the saddle. Luckily the boys love them like crazy so they make up where we might leave off.

    Good luck on the adoption.

    Haha! Cats really do lay in the strangest of places!

    Bean is such a beautiful kitty! Looks a lot like one of my cats, Derek. (yeah, I called my cat Derek. Strange….)

    Oh my, that’s is beyond cuteness! BeanyBaby…I think it’s meant to be. Despite Bean’s reluctance. Hehe….Bean will be okay because the heart hasn’t any restrictions on the amount of love that can flow from it…and you two will flow ever more with an addition to your heart.

    Love is the one thing you can give and give and only get more of and never run out! :)

    Too funny! I’ve had several cats and they always like to hang out in the funniest places and the most uncomfortable looking too. One of mine was notorious for sitting on all my dad’s paperwork on his desk while he was using it and watched him as he used the computer. She wouldn’t move, he’d literally have to tug the papers from under her. LOL.

    I was away for a few weeks, I’m thinking I missed something-“kids?” and plural? Are there some babies on the way?

    My husband and I have a 7 year old miniature schnauzer. We have made a big mistake. We call all his toys “baby.” We say “go get your baby.” We noticed our mistake when our friends and family started having kids and bringing them over to visit. Charlie (our schnauzer) hears the word “baby” and goes to grab the baby with his teeth! Oops!!

    I just found your blog and love it! Just had to comment because my cats do same thing — they claim their spots and then we must work our lives around it! Our big boy Maine Coon sleeps on an old ratty red suitcase. He loves that suitcase. Of course that means an old ratty red suitcase is now a permanent part of our bedroom decor! But the cat is very happy and that’s verrrry important for the peace of our household.
