Calico cat’s comfort zone

Sparta on a pile of blankets

Sparta is our youngest of two tortoiseshell [calico] cats and typically loves her creature comforts. I’ve noticed over the decades of sharing my home and life with cats that there’s a hint of the ‘Princess and the Pea’ about them. They won’t settle for sleeping on a soft settee or bed if there’s a newspaper, towel, folded-up blanket or pile of washing on it – just in case the prince has slipped a dried pea under the edge of the mattress I suppose?

Here she is on top of a pile of folded blankets on top of a cushion on top of a couch. One day I’ll put a dried pea under a carefully arranged pile of soft stuff to see if they notice.

    Sparta’s drawing tells a story of every cat! They like to sleep on your things and they will sit there looking at you as if they own the place:) Fantastic stuff!

      Thank you Rayya, all my cats have been just the same, except now and again they go and do something really daft like sleep in the bath 🙂
