A Blanket Full of Feathers

Now why didn’t I think of this sooner? I have had trouble locating blankets that Callie finds appealing and have actually known her to leap away from a blanket she doesn’t like. The wonderful fleece, lap blankets sold in most stores, Callie finds appalling. It is almost like she thinks a cat was skinned and made a blanket out of. Attempts at getting her to sleep on one are met with contempt and all four paws spread out with such aversion that her feet hardly touch the blanket before she is airborne in disgust. When traveling in the RV, I need to know that she can find a safe and warm place to rest if she is kicked out of our bed. Yesterday I chanced upon a dirty and torn goose down comforter that was buried deep inside the linen closet and decided to wash and repair it. I no sooner had the blanket laid out on the floor to sew and patch up the tear, that Callie claimed it for herself. She took one sniff at it, swatted at a few feathers and rolled and tossed and turned and snuggled up and took a nap. I had trouble repairing it because she thought it was a game of finders keepers. It is perfect for the RV because it is “feather lite” and will be easy to store. She will be toasty warm if we head up to the mountains and into the snow. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it sooner. A blanket full of feathers for a cat… purrfect!
