It's a hit.

I have been 'purging' unwanted items from my home for awhile now. Yesterday I went through my clothes again and found I had one more bag to donate to our local thrift shops. It feels really good to clean out closets and drawers and lessen the load of things in our lives. I am slowly beginning to live by the rule to  'Only surround yourself with things you love.' Clothes, books, china, bits and bobs have all fallen victim to my new mission.

This morning I gathered up two cat-scratchers and a cat bed that have been ignored long enough and they, too,  headed out the door. I replaced them though with  this cat bed/scratcher combined that would house two cats at a time inside and as you can see by the last photo, even one on top. It's also good-looking enough that it can sit in the living-room for now. The real scatchers in our house are actual logs that we place around the wood-stove. The cats love to use them to sharpen their nails before the log ends up as fire-wood.

This seems to be a hit. It's made by Bailey & Bella. It is so light-weight you can pick it up with one finger.

The pillow is velcroed to the bottom so it can be easily removed and washed. 
"Hey, I want the top bunk. Tell mom she looks fat up there."
"Oh Audrey, quit complaining. "

hugs, Deb


  1. Looks like kitties are camping in that . Cute photos ! It is always a good feeling when you clean out some of the clutter isn't it ? Thanks for sharing . Have a good evening !

  2. I really like that contraption! And, it seems they do too!

  3. I love your new bed/scratcher ....could do with a few here ...all around the house. My vegetable rack has been adopted at night, by Ellie, so I've put a tiny blanket in it for her ...the things we do ....I might just change it into 3 sleeping pods for the small cats !!!!Take Care xx

  4. Your gorgeous photo of Annie took our breath away! What an exquisite face!
    Maybe one day you might fill us in about what she likes to do, how she interacts with you and the other kitties. Do tell us. She is the mystery woman of your group!

  5. They are all so gorgeous. Love the double decker bed/ scratcher. :)

  6. Absolutely love your cats pics, Deb. And yes, our 6 kitties tend to take over whatever they can 'fit' into also (and sometimes even things they can't quite fit into, but not for lack of trying). Your Audrey complains like my Ghost... sweet wonderful cat, but she does like to fuss (even hisses and growls at me when I play with her... but she loves it).
