Properly furred

All pillows must be properly furred before use. What, you didn't know that?! You should just ask Mencken and the Mighty Fang, they take turns doing the duty!

  1. I prop my sleeping pillow up so that Natasha furs the bottom, and I sleep with my face on the top.

  2. Here's a story you won't believe. For a long time now I've been in some pain. My Cat used to sense it and lay where ever on my body I needed warmth.
    Truth is I did feel better. She's been gone now for five years. I still feel her presence sometimes when I'm trying to sleep. Must be the Meds....

  3. Tim, I think cats get sort of a psychic sense of you after a while. My furballs are in general pretty good about sensing my moods and offering the proper purrs and cuddles to deal with it.

    Minerva, you might notice there is a sheet or blanket that is mostly covering the pillows. If not, I'd be breathing fur all night :). I can't do your trick because I use both pillows at night (one on top, one on bottom of head, I'm a side sleeper). Indeed, Mencken used to sleep on top of the pillow that was *on top of my head* until he got his claw snagged in the pillowcase one day and the pillow chased him off the bed (from his perspective, that's what it looked like, anyhow ;). Since then he's always looked suspiciously at that pillow and settled for simply snuggling next to me, heh.

  4. My lovely wife is allergic to cats. They sense that too. If we're at a house hat has a cat, it will ignore me and go try to make friends with her.


  5. Hey, that looks suspiciously like my bed frame. Nadeau white maple?

  6. Sawdust, glue, and stick-on pseudo-wood, 42. A real wood bedframe was out of my price range when I went shopping for a bedroom set... so particleboard and a pseudo-wood wrapper was what I ended up with.
