We are not big on cat toys or furniture, although we love our cats to a point pretty close to delirium. Partly it’s a matter of taste – most cat toys and furniture are ugly, but it also a matter of not really thinking about getting them things. They do have boards to scratch, bought for pennies at the hardware store, and I did make catnip toys once, but Oliver dismembered them rapidly. We’ve tried beds, but none of them worked, except for this one, which Oliver is pretty much always in. The thing about this, is that it’s hanging off the radiator, so it’s nice and warm. He used to sleep on the floor next to the radiator, and that’s why I bought it. He slept under it a few times, until I actually lifted him up and put him in it, and then he was hooked. I like it because it’s in my study, so I have a companion while I’m *ahem* working away.
