Opie greets 2022

Opie greets 2022. Opie gets probably the least exposure in this blog. She lives primarily in her own room, so the boys cannot bother her too much. They like to chase her, but she doesn’t like that at all. The other day, Scooby came in and went to bed in her cat bed. She wouldn’t go in it after that, so it is in the washing queue and Greg replaced her bed with a “clean” one free of Scooby cooties. These beds of which there are five are about 12 years old and get rotated to keep them from wearing out and washed carefully. Quite happy in her bed she has no desire to get up for 2022. Maybe in 2023 if we all live so long. Meow! PS Greg went out foraging for canned cat food and scored some new things we like at PetSmart store. Stress level reducing for the moment.

Marigold’s cat bed

Marigold sleeps in her orange cat bed most of the time. For that reason, it became time to give it a wash. It is over 6 years old. I got it at Walgreens. It seems to wash in the machine OK on gentle cycle and cold water. It must drip dry. I am afraid to put it into the dryer! It’s shape is getting a little saggy, but it is soft. Compare it to the tiger bed which has hardly been washed at all.

Marigold is not happy. She cannot find her bed.

The good news is that the cat bed is clean and upon the drying rack. The face and tail are still intact. Soon Marigold can go back into her bed!
