Making the beds with cats

When it’s time to change the bed sheets and put on new ones, it quickly becomes a race to see if I can get it done before the cats hear me. This doesn’t always happen, however, and then it becomes a big funny game.

You probably know this, but for those who don’t – cats like caves and they love crawling inside things. Grocery bags, boxes, suitcases, and … well, sheets are a big hoot too.

On this particular day, Max has gotten under the top sheet, and Emily is very curious:

That lump? That’s Max. Emily is waiting for just the right moment. She explores her best angle of attack:

She tries waiting on the other side … he has to move sometime, right?

Ultimately, she knows she’s got him right where she wants him.

Me? I think I’ll go get some more tea while they fight this out. No sense putting the comforter on to confuse the issue. I can finish making the bed later.
