Bed Making Skills
For all those critics out there who say cats don’t do anything to contribute to their room and board, I must report that my cats help me make beds. Fireball is especially helpful. He’ll jump onto the fresh sheets that I’m trying to pull out straight and he’ll bit and kick any wrinkle in the fabric he can find — especially when the material is moving. Sometimes he spins around for 10 or 15 minutes attacking different bits of fabric as I try to get my bedding into place. I get to make him into each layer of the bed with the layer above until he comes to a rest from all the frenetic activity. Of course, a task that otherwise might take 5 minutes ends up taking 20 thanks to all the laughs and picture taking, but what else can make housework so much fun?
