Since it's been so wet and muddy here, the dog beds have been caked with dirt. The dogs go outside, they get mud on their toes, and they walk those muddy toes into their beds. In time, the beds are just as dirty as the great outdoors.
So I've been washing those beds about once a week, and when the beds are all clean, I put them in a pile until I can redistribute them. Apparently, Lucy thought this pile of very clean and warm laundry was the perfect napping spot. So I went ahead and snapped her shot for The Cat on My Head where she was resting.
Most cats will sleep in piles of laundry like this, especially if it's come straight from the dryer. It's super sweet and understandable, but it can be a little dangerous. I know of people who have stepped on cats sleeping in laundry, and I know of some people who have put semi-damp laundry back in the dryer, with the cat still entangled.
If your cat is a laundry sleeper, it's best to pat things down on a regular basis. A quick tap before you step on, move, or pick up the pile should make the kitty dart back out again. And all of that tapping could remind the kitty that this is not a safe space for sleeping, and that could help you to head off a future nap crisis.
But in the interim, enjoy some Lucy looking snuggly. If you do enjoy it, leave me a comment so I'll know what you thought. And, remember to visit some of the other blogs in the hop.
