Okay, I didn’t actually spot a Yeti. That would be awesome though. No, I saw something just as elusive though. Fellow cat owners will know that you can spend as much money as you want on a cat bed, but the cat will never sleep there. Dagger is no exception. While I didn’t spend a ton of money on her cat bed, I did get her a reasonably nice one. (In full disclosure I think Meo and Omi actually bought Dagger’s cat bed. I got her right after college and Meo and Omi pretty much funded her life for the first year.) So of course Dagger rarely sleeps in it. She much prefers plastic bags, Ben’s pack and play, or my face. Those are obviously the more comfortable choices.
Yesterday, Ben and I got home and couldn’t find Dagger. I always look to see Dagger before I leave the house and when I get home. I like to have visual confirmation that she isn’t stuck in a room somewhere. But Ben and I couldn’t find her anywhere! After calling and searching, I even tried shaking the bag of treats. Then I heard a little bell. I checked the last place I would ever think to look, her bed. Sure enough, there was Dagger! I snapped a picture as proof that she does occasionally sleep in her own bed. I’m sure now we won’t see it again for months.
