My cat, Pico, has a beautiful bed that I bought him at Pet Smart several months ago. I spent, I think, $25 on it:
I bought it because it matches my living room furniture, red and khaki, and he seemed to like it just fine for a while, even if he couldn’t quite figure out how to fold himself into it:
But then I went and bought running shoes. I took them out of the box in the living room and left the box on the floor. Next thing I know, Pico took up residence:
I didn’t have the heart to take the box out to the recycling because he looks so cute trying to squish his considerable girth into that little rectangle. Luckily, though, I recently opened some presents that were covered in tissue paper, and Pico has now appropriated an errant piece of it for his bed, so we’re good:
Do your pets do weird things like this, too?
