Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers,
I guess it was my turn to get sick this weekend, but part of me is completely fine with it. This weekend I spent my time sleeping on the couch like my partner did the past two weeks before, and the cats have been spending every night sleeping with me. While Beau is still jumping up on my partner’s lap while we’re both awake, the cats have been sharing space by my feet the past 3 nights.
It’s really making me rethink why it is Kalista doesn’t like sleeping in bed with us. While I told you a few weeks back that I woke up to Kalista sleeping with my partner and me in bed, I’m not sure if it’s going to happen again anytime soon. It might just be because of the cat tree in our bedroom, which she seems to be using less and less since the weather got colder. Both her and Beau have been sticking to the couch or the Meowfia Beds for the most part, but I’ve just moved the cat tree into my office to see if that helps. Oh! Update on the heat in our apartment! I just bought one of those oil heaters I was talking about. So far it’s doing the trick, and today was -16 degrees Celcius which is 3.2 degrees Fahrenheit. Remind me why we live in Canada?
Back to the purpose of this blog though. I want to try a couple things out over the next few weeks (when I’m done being sick) to see what it is that Kalista is drawn to. Is she sleeping with us nightly on the couch because it’s the couch? Is she just not a huge fan of the bed? Is it because she knows the cat tree is (well now was) in the bedroom? I want to get down to the bottom of it! Not because I want to force Kalista to sleep with us, but it would be super cool to understand her behaviour patterns.
Have any of my readers done something similar to this before? Let me know in the comments below, especially if you have advice!
