My cousin Pewter moved to Florida and I thought it would be fun for her to have a new scratcher to welcome her to her new home. I like my big scratcher/lounger so much that I thought maybe she’d like one too.
Here she is on her new scratcher. And just like in my house, her scratcher is under a big window so she can sit up and look outside. I’ve never met her in purrson, but she looks like a bigger girl like me so it will be interesting to see if she gets inside the open ends of the scratcher.
But I’m not cold in my tent-o-heat. I lay on the heater vent and the curtains go around me like a tent to make a nice warm area. My window-ledge bed is the roof of my private little warm tent.
Here’s a close up. Usually I’m completely behind the curtain, but this time you can just barely see my eye on the left and my paw in front of my nose.
This is the only heater vent for the living room, so I get almost all the heat and mom & dad have to wait for me to move before they get heat.
We know many of you have snow and really cold weather, but we’re having unusually cold weather here in California. It’s so cold that mom & dad have to protect the plants from freezing to death. Here’s a picture of my lemon tree looking like a big marshmallow. It has to be protected from the cold temperatures otherwise all the fruit will freeze and the tree won’t be happy. It has a tent kind-of like my heater tent.
Spitty commented that my woofy cousin had enough time on my blog and I needed to shove him off. I agree, so I thought I’d share a photo of me relaxing in my bed.You’d think with two big beds to choose from, I’d be completely IN one of them, but I decided it was more comfy to let my head drape over the edge. Mom calls the one I’m in my “princess and the pea bed” because there’s squishy hardwood floor pad, then a triple-folded thick pink towel under my foam bed, and then there’s a triple-folded blanket on top, so I have lots of padding to snuggle into. It provides a cozy view of my back yard because this window gets sun in the late morning / early afternoon, and I’m next to the heater vent. The bed on the right is a flannel-covered down pillow with a foam core. I save that for the really cold days.
This is my cousin Varmit, a.k.a. Boo. He moved here from Idaho last week. I haven’t met him yet, but I’ve smelled him all over mom & dad. He’s a friendly little Pomeranian mix and I may be able to meet him some day. I liked my dog brother Bentley, and Varmit has lived with a kitty, so he may be able to come visit me. Varmit and I are about the same height, but I outweigh him by a few pounds. Even if we never meet in person, I already like Varmit because when he moved here from Idaho with his mom, our houseguest moved back to her home so they could all live together. That means I have my bedroom all to myself again and mom and I get our bathroom back. Welcome to California, Varmit!
Mom & Dad went to an Orange Festival last week. They bought some oranges and looked around at all the stuff typically sold at small fairs. Someone who makes stuff from alpaca wool had a couple alpacas for people to see. We think they’re cute!
