When you give a cat a bed, the cat will ignore the bed. Always.
When I first adopted my kittens, I went out and bought two cat beds from a pet store figuring they would each use one bed. I have had them for two months now and I have only seen them in the beds twice: once on the afternoon that they came home with me and then later that night.
So where do they sleep? Usually not these beds. Most of the time they either sleep on my bed or cuddle up in their cat tree.
But I have an idea for something new to try. I finished some clementines the other day and decided to give the box to the cats. Then this happened:
I think I’m going to put a blanket in the box and see it keeps getting used as a bed. I hope so! But these are cats I’m talking about, and it is very likely that they will lose all interest in the box as soon as I start calling it a bed.
