Our new scratching post

Mum went shopping and came back with a box. "It was a good price," she said "so I thought it was worth a shot."

Then she opened the box. "Drat - self-assembly. I hate that." But with Josie's help she managed to put it together. I'm not sure she would have managed it without Josie to tap at the pieces she thought mum would need next and to test the robustness as mum went along.

"Ta Da" said mum when she was done. We both had a go in the box it had come in but neither of us were that keen to get near the new thing. "Look at the cat on the box - it looks really happy to be with its scratching post" she said encouragingly. But I pointed out that it was either an unusually small cat or a photoshop job and mum lookec closer and said she thinks photoshop.

Through the day mum made various attempts to get us near it but we were having none of it. Until last night that is. Mum dangled Da Bird on it and I couldn't resist. I climbed up. "Hey - this is OK." It is all soft and furry. I curled myself up and fitted perfectly so I had a snooze.

"You're meant to be sharpening your claws on it," said mum.

"And ruin such a comfy sleep spot? No way!"

So mum wondered aloud if all her money and hard work had just made me another place to sleep and I do have plenty of those. That's true but another one is always welcome.

She did take some photos so you could all see me but when she tried to load them on my page it said we couldn't as we have too many. If we wanted more we would have to upgrade to Catster Plus. But we are aleady Catster Plus kitties. So mum sent a message to Catster HQ and once that is sorted you can see our new snoozy spot.

Other than that it was a pretty perfect weekend. I like a rainy one as I can easily replace all the pawprints that mum spends much of her time removing and I like snuggles on the sofa while mum reads her book.

My skin servant is looking for a scratching tower for me also. I want a real high one with lots of perches but skin servant says it cost too much. I am a princess, get over it and get me one I say. You say it is soft. I will have to keep working on her.

Oh, I wanna see Toby on his new scratching / laying post. Just try to load the pitchers again, Toby. Catster said the same thing to us ones and we just tried again and then it worked.
