I had to get this picture in here for my loyal reading fans. I took it this morning…it is Simon the cat in his new hammock.
When Stephanie visited earlier in the week, she came bearing gifts. One of them was a brownie that I ate this morning and the other was this cat hammock. I was concerned that none of our cats would use it, but this morning Simon inched his fat body right in there.
Here is a little bit of caution…whenever accepting cat gifts from people and you suspect the item may have been around another cat or cats, be sure to clean the item in bleach. There are certain viruses that can be easily transferred from cat to cat this way, such as Feline Leukemia. You can easily soak a cat hammock like this in a bleach solution in the bathtub.
Better safe than sorry, especially when it comes to fat cats like Simon.
