Starting today, I’ll be posting a weekly thing every Friday called Phantom Phriday. I started doing it a few years ago as a Friday thing that I would send to a few co-workers that liked seeing photos of the boys and sometimes I’d add in a story or dialogue to make it fun, which I’ll do here as well. I haven’t done it as much this year for various reasons, but to help me keep some consistency to my blog, I’ve decided to post them here. So enjoy!
“Minion, you babble too much. Shut up and get to me.”
At our home, we have a lot of cat blankets, pillows, and cat beds, but I’m not sure why we keep buying them (I get them because I think they’re cute..) when more times than not the cats end up going for these..
“This bed will do, minion. It hugs me nicely.”
Boxes. Always boxes. Especially shoe boxes. It doesn’t even matter how small the box is, they will fit themselves in it even if they look ridiculous. Even after they’ve stretched the box out to the point of it breaking, they’ll still sit in/on it.
Rio: “HAH! This box is mine now!”
Rio: “I mean..This box will do. Now go fetch me my treats, peasant.”
So, instead of buying them cute, nice beds or pillows, just give them a box. Sure, it wont look as nice in your home, but it’s cheaper and they’ll love it more.
Also, one more tip. Don’t give them treats right before you go to bed unless you want to deal with a hyper cat running around your bed and jumping on and off of you.
