Warm and Comfy
Cats always seem to look comfortable, no matter where they happen to be sitting. Or lounging. Or, more than likely, sleeping.
We have an unofficial contest at our house: most awk-
ward sleeping position. Our cat, Jack, usually wins this one.
Sometimes he’s curled up in a tight little ball. Or he’s lying on
his back with his legs in all different directions. My favorite is
when his top half is turned one way and his bottom half
Of course, sometimes they can get TOO com-
fortable. Our cat, Agatha, likes to burrow under
the covers at night. One night, my husband –
who was half-asleep – thought he was fluffing
up a pillow but quickly realized the pillow was
actually Agatha. She was not amused. But, after a
few minutes, she forgave him and curled back up
and went to sleep.
We all want our furry friends to be comfortable
and happy at home. This issue is full of ideas to help
you keep your cat warm and comfy. Want to make
your cat a bed without spending a fortune? We’ll show you
some fun ways to work with fleece and pillows for a bed
your cat will love. Interested in the ancient art of feng shui?
We’ll tell you the perfect places in your home for the cat
beds you just made.
Part of being comfortable in your home means that you think
of yourself as king or queen of the castle. Cats are no exception.
I’m just lucky my cats allow us to share the house with them.
But our feline majesties can get a little annoying, especially at
night when you’re trying to sleep. Whether your cat walks over
your head, decides to knead on your shoulder for 20 minutes,
or likes to pounce your feet under the covers, those nighttime
behaviors are charming for about two seconds. Behaviorist Rita
Reimers shares tips on curbing those nighttime antics, letting
you actually get a good night’s sleep.
It’s hard to stay mad at our kitties for long, though. After all,
they’re part of what makes a home a home.

BEHIND THE SCENES
I recently had a reunion with
two of my former foster kittens.
Usually, I don’t know what
happens to my little charges
once they’re big enough to go
back to the shelter. I just hope
that they’ve found the loving
forever homes they deserve.
But these little guys were
adopted by a co-worker, so
I’ve been able to get updates
on them. It’s been really fun
watching them grow up into
the sweet and beautiful cats
