Bo on his Plow & Hearth pillow

Our cats, now over three-and-a-half-years-old, are in firm control of the household. They know that it’s the two of them who are really in charge. To drive that point home, Bo has decided that his newest favorite spot in the house is lounging on the red Plow & Hearth pillow on top of a foot stool in the TV room.

Saturday, I’d been cleaning and moving things around and I just happened to put the pillow on top of the foot stool just to get it out of the way. In less time than you can say “Ginger Marmalade Cat” Bo not only discovered its location, but had further decided he liked perching on top. And in that specific position so he can keep his eyes on me while resting.

My wife and I had originally decided to give the pillow to Goodwill, but it looks like that won’t be happening anytime soon. I don’t think Bo would be too happy if the pillow were to leave the house. So it stays, oriented as you see it, on the foot stool. Now I get to observe if Luke, his brother, will wrestle with him over the right to lie upon it as well.
