There was a fancy cat bed, once

When Aurora was a little kitten, I made this goldfish cat bed with a pattern from Simplicity. Contrary to the company name, it wasnt simple. In fact, on several occasions during its construction, I nearly took it out to the backyard where I planned to set it on fire, then stomp its ashes into oblivion.

Obviously determination prevailed, and I proudly presented it to the Little Princess. This is a picture of THE ONE TIME she napped inside.

For the next couple years, it looked like this:



LOL!

Have a great saturday, see you tommorrow with Budgie Sunday.

(The Little Wattle birds threw me a curve this morning, Mr stayed up in the tallest gum tree and wasnt coming down for quids. But I did delight in his spring dawn song, and had a good chuckle at the accompanying groans from all the neighbors who were trying to sleep in.)

Poor Aurora, Priapus is at least double her weight. LOL
They also really are not great pals as this would suggest - but they both wanted a cushy spot to sleep in the sun tehehe

Hhahahhahahhaaa! Jack has a fluffy pineapple to sleep in but he likes to sleep on the green stalk on top :) I like your fishy! Your cats do too, they just like redesigning too:)

Lavender said...

Oh Thank you! I liked the fishy very much myself once Id conquered it...you maybe right about redesigning - they did remodel him a bit! Hahaha
So Jack doesnt like to sleep inside his snuggler? I bet he thinks he looks more handsome on the top...I wonder if he would if you dared him to?

This is darling and I like to hear that you prevailed. It is very nice and rather a humorous item, the fish got the cat! Well, the second photo may mot look like a fish anymore but those two are very snugly together. A happy and contented scene.

You could always use the fishy as a foot warmer in Winter Lavender! That would teach the re-designers :) Jack does sleep inside another 'roll of cardboard with sock around it'. It is SO much less attractive!

Lavender said...

Ces I loved that about the fishy too - sort of a fishy revenge to swallow a cat tehehe

Anon Hahaha roll of cardboard with sock - what a silly bird! Youd think with all his brilliant colours, he'd have better fashion sense :)
A foot warmer, why yes, why not! hehehe

That goldfish cat bed is really imaginative, Lavender. It's well made.

Lavender said...

Hoto LOL Good one, I hadnt thought of that :)

Aoide Tehehe wicked - love that expression!

Merlinprincesse Hooray! Thats exactly what I like most to do, make people laugh - and yes, somehow they always get thier way, wonder if they would share how they do that with me?

CaptainOh thank you very much...hmmm, just wondered what it would take to make an "Enterprise" shaped cat bed ROFL!

The bed is very cute and well made - I wish I had something like that. Of course, the cat bed I already bought for my cat, well, she's never used it anyway. *laughs*

Your cats are beautiful!

Lavender said...

LOL Tay, that seems to be the way of cats! Thanks for stopping by!

You have more preserverence than I do. I would have been out there stomping too. My cats love their beds-in winter. (Purchased at the store, I might add, nothing so fancy.) It gets pretty cold up here on the mountain. My friend got a fish snuggle thing for her cats. Same thing happened. It lies flat and they lay on top of it. Love the shot BTW.

Lavender said...

Hahaha Bevson, sounds about right! Even though here it gets no where near as cold as it does where you are, the cats still know where the warmest spot is - and resent being shifted from it LOL!
