Jack, who has two carefully selected pet beds he never uses, has decided his bed will be a basket I bought to eventually hold mail, that is currently holding a number of Target plastic bags.

I moved a similar basket over by it, lined with cloth, which I thought would be more comfortable. No dice. He wants the one with the now-flattened plastic bags.

Who am I to argue?

They're contrary beasts, aren't they? Moly will sleep in a cat bed, but nobody else will. Penny sleeps in empty boxes, sometimes empty boxes she doesn't fit in without contorting like a pretzel. We got a second cat bed, thinking she might like it, and perhaps the first one smelled too much like Moly-fur. No dice: Moly's the only one who'll sleep in that one either. All of them take great pleasure in sitting on anything that doesn't really belong on the floor: bags, pieces of tissue paper, flattened Mylar balloons, whatever. I don't see the attraction, but they look so smug about it.

Jack also likes to steal my chair, as soon as I get up from it. But I've outwitted him. I have more than one chair.

Ha! I've found Penny on my desk chair every morning this week. They really go through phases when it comes to favorite sleeping spots.

You know, I was going to say something silly, but then I remembered that one of my favorite things to play with when I was tiny was a giant cardboard box that our dishwasher came in. Note: I had a treehouse.

The Children's Museum in Madison did some renovating last year, and ended up with a bunch of big boxes. They decided to stick them all in a room and let kids play with them. Turned out to be one of their most popular exhibits.

I can definitely see the appeal of a cardboard box. They have kind of a nice smell, assuming they haven't been transporting anything too pungent. I fondly remember a refrigerator box from when I was little.
