We recently bought a new sofa because we needed more seating in our living room. And because the sofa is awesome, velour, pumpkin orange, and, well, BRAND NEW!!!...Whiskers was henceforth banished. We gave him a stern talking to, reminded him the cushy old sofa was still available, and shooed him away whenever he so much as looked at the new sofa. All was going well until...
...I walked down the hall to the living room this morning, and stopped dead in my tracks when I noticed Whiskers sitting motionless on the back of the new sofa, peering at me through the darkness like some James Bond villain. All he needed was a swivel chair, fluffy white cat, and a pinky ring to complete the picture. So I stormed in, flipped on the lights, and started shrieking like a banshee for him to get off! Well....I might have done the shrieking bit after I snapped that picture.
Whiskers is still getting adjusted, but he loves being able to see out TWO windows from the sofa now. I've started referring to the back of our sectional as "Puppy Run", because when I come home from work every day, the back cushions are completely smashed from him running side-to-side to people-watch/bark.
He's learned not to climb in the windows though, because the day of the re-arrangement, he got trapped in the left-hand windowsill because he couldn't figure out how to walk backward onto the sofa, LOL! We came home and couldn't find him until I saw the curtains rustle and heard a whimper....I'm pretty sure he was stuck there for almost 2 hours.
I'm going to make some additional pillows for the couch and wanted to use this Echino print. Knowing just how to play Ray because he loves all things rustic/antler-related, I walked in the room (acting overly excited) and said to him "Look babe! I just found some super-manly fabric that matches the couch perfectly! It even has deer on it!"
His reply was "I'm pretty sure the purple bees (raises an eyebrow and points) negate the deer's manliness".
Crap. Plot foiled.
This is my new favorite spot! When we rearranged the front room, it created enough room for us to move the bookcase from the guest room. I now have a reading nook :)
P.S. Wanna play a game of Where's Whiskers? He appears a total of 3 times in this post.
