One of my favourite spots in the house is the sun room. Here, there are lots of windows through which shine beams of deliciously warm sunlight. Ohhh.... I get warm and fuzzy all over just thinking about it.
It's not an overly big room. Whoever designed the house should have made it bigger but whoever he was, he probably wasn't a cat. Probably didn't know any better.
In my sun room, there are two chairs. They're of a good size with nice big comfy cushions upon which we cats love to sit. And very conveniently, the chairs are made of wicker. Wicker chairs are great 'cause they double up as scratching posts. The peeps really don't understand this feature but we cats do. It's very obvious. As obvious as the whiskers on my face. Not the whiskers on my sister Connie's face though. As you can see in her picture, her white whiskers blend right into all that white fur. No, mine are much more obvious that that! Just as are the many uses of wicker furniture.
Anyway... every year around this time, we allow peep #1 to borrow bits of the sun room. She's not allowed on the chairs, mind you... she's only allowed to use the floor. But boy, does she ever use it. She fills the joint with plants. I think she thinks it's some kind of greenhouse or something. We don't mind her putting in a plant or two but a hundred? There are probably even be more than a hundred. Way more. She's really starting to take advantage of our generosity and good natures.
The other day, in she trotted with a whole flat of carnations. A whole flat! Do you have any idea how big that is? Then, when I wasn't looking, another appeared. This one with snapdragons. Yesterday, I was snooping around in her office, and I found three more flats. Next to them were empty seed packets from pansies. You know what's going to happen, don't you. Once those pansies start germinating, the peep is gonna want to put those flats in the sun room, too! And I didn't see any stocks or painted daisies yet. She's probably gonna want some of those in there, as well. She always does.
Obviously, once again, it has begun. Before I know it, that whole sun room floor is going to be covered in plants. She'll have that floor so filled that there will only be a teeny-weeny path for us cats to use to access our chairs. Luckily, we're all very nimble footed. Thank goodness for that!
All those plants. All those wasted sun puddles on the floor. We'll be totally confined to the chairs and yes, they are comfy but still, a cat likes to have options. And furthermore, regarding the plants, we cats aren't allowed to eat them, pee on them, dig them up or anything fun like that. We just have to put up with them. Hmmmph! Like I said, it has begun.
