I had a basket of folded laundry out which drew the attention of the cats. Even Calpurnia was induced to come down and grab a bed on top of it. I put an old towel on top so that the clean stuff won’t get too much cat hair on it.
They prefer laundry to any of the cat beds around.
It doesn’t take long before they are asleep once they climb in.
In other news, I recently ordered a new water fountain for the cats. I noticed that Gus and Julie were showing signs of acne. This is often linked to plastic, and the only plastic the cats use is the fountains. In fact, Gus would rest his chin on the edge of the old fountain and drink and sleep there for a long time.
This one is ceramic, and dishwasher safe. Gus spent a while drinking from it as I took pictures, so it is a hit in that respect.
At its current setting, it is a little noisy, as the top bubbles up about an inch before running down the top in a small rivulet. The force can be turned down, which might make it quieter.
