Sunbathing



We had a couple nights this past week where the temperature fell to 28 degrees (-2.2C).  One of those nights was the first time Beans ever got under the covers with me.  Sinbad used to do that all the time.  I always worried about him smothering.  Usually Beans sleeps on top of my feet or legs.  I can't imagine how sleeping on my bony legs can be comfortable.  It isn't too much for me.  But she does put out some warmth.  I'll take that.  She's a big cat.  Bigger than Sinbad and probably weighs half again as much as did Sinbad.  I wish there was some way I could weigh her.  I thought of those scales in the grocery store in the fruit and vegetable section.  I don't think Beans would tolerate going into the grocery store.  The people probably would like it either.  "Don't mind me.  I'm just weighing my cat."

  2. You could use a people scale. Just weigh yourself, then hold her, and subtract... I bet you have thought of that, but don't have a people scale either... ;-)

    Ha ha, thinking of you in the grocery store... don't mind me....Can you believe this cat fruit is only 17 cents per pound??
