I seem to remember that someone made a comment about cat beds needing to be washable. When I'd made them I'd been in such a rush to provide bedding for the new cats that I'd been rather lax and not pre-washed any of the fabric or even checked the fillings for laundering instructions. However, due to a cat doing something utterly unmentionable in one of their beds yesterday (Why?! Could she possibly have chosen an act that would offend me more than to wee on her handmade bed?! I have no idea what could have prompted such a thing from a perfectly litter-trained cat who is normally so fastidiously tidy and clean) the washing of one of them was necessitated. I am delighted to report that the bed was washed and then tumble-dried in less than two hours, seemingly with no ill effects or shrinkage, which thankfully went some way towards alleviating my desire to throttle the cat (for despite being a committed vegetarian for the past 27 years, my thoughts toward the perpetrator were most uncharitable and a roasting pan was a temporary consideration).
Thank you for all your well wishes for my tonsillitis...which is improving, but sinusitis seems to be taking its place - I had avoided taking the antibiotics that I'd been given, but as I would like to be able to move my head without the need to suppress yelps of pain, I may just open them tonight. However, despite the pain, somehow I don't feel too bad in myself and we have managed trips to the swimming pool and lots of time with friends. My only regret is that we have arranged to catch up with so many people that we no longer have a day reserved for pajamas and baking...I am looking forward to the Easter holidays already. I hope you are having fun if you have your babes off this week...or fun even if you don't. x
