Creature comforts

We make sure there are fluffy beds and nice clean cushy blankies for the kitties, but, as it turns out, the underneath of an old box spring will do fine (as Jax demonstrates here).

Alex loved to get on his back underneath the bed, and drag himself around by pulling on this fibery stuff tacked to the bottom of the box spring. He loved to pull himself to the edge where his head would be sticking out looking at us with a great big teethy grin. There's the hole he left in it. I think he actually got up inside it once. That was one crazy cat. The old mattress set is gone, as of Saturday, and Alex has been gone since July 15, 2007 - almost exactly 3 years. That was also a Sunday when we had to make "the hard decision" as it's called. We'll never forget him.

I had a cat that used to get up inside the box spring too. She did it once when we were staying at a motel and it took us an hour to find her. We thought she'd run away. That day was a major pain in the ass.

Oh yes, we had to dig a cat out of a motel bed once. Same deal.

He sounds like he was quite the character! As all great cats are! Lovely song and story! :)
