Caturday Night’s All Right For Napping

We washed our TV-watching blankets, and my wife stacked them on the chair. The cat decided this would be the best place ever to camp out. We haven’t been able to budge her in hours.


Clearly, our cat thinks she’s royalty. But then, why couldn’t she feel the pea under those blankets?
