The Warm Chair

The Warm Chair

The PM had the best chair in the house.




She recently went to a wool farm and came home with a big bag of mixed fleece for felting.


Some of the wool was not carded, just dyed so she was going through it, brushing it and picking the little pieces of straw out.


I had been watching by the stairs. She looked so comfortable and warm sitting in the lovely sunbeams. She got up to change the channel on the radio and I acted quick.

"What? You were still sitting here?"

"But it is soooo warm here. A cat needs to be in the beam"
.
.
.
I waited.

Would she move me or not?


Of course not.
She went to the other, sunless chair.


Thanks PM! She remembers a plaque her Grammie had on the wall.

If you want the best seat in the house, you'll have to move the cat.

I guess she didn't want it that bad.

Aren't PM's awesome? I'm glad you got to enjoy the sumbeam!

Choupette is just like you Shade, as soon as I leave my sewing chair, she jumps on it, and hisses when I want it back. It is not in the sun, but in the beam of light from the sewing machine :-)

That's a great saying! So true, so true!

Cory said...

That saying is so true Shade! We get all the good spots/chairs. Mom will sometimes move us but dad feels bad about it and will always go sit somewhere else.

Mommys are the best!

Yup! And that's why with nine cats, I eat my breakfast standing up. Hmmmmmm...

We who are wise enough to live with cats, know that they are worth losing a seat over. Besides, cats are solar powered.
I enjoyed reading your blog.

Great move, Shade! I like to take up the place where mom sat too.

P.S.: Mom says the wool looks good! Nice colours! She has been having problems with the fleece she ordered, it still hasn't arrived. Sigh.

Kitties should get the best seats. We like the two comfy recliners and our Beans often have to make do with the old settee or the floor.

LC, Ayla, and Iza said...

Way ta go SHADE! MOL!

We love the Grammas Plaque too. So true...

CCL Wendy said...

Right on Shade! Your mama must know it's the first rule of owning a cat -- thou shalt not move a napping kitty.

It's kind of ironic that Shade was soaking up the sun!

Derby said...

Pretty wools to use. I agree, we get the best seat in the house.

Tristan and Crikey said...

Maybe your Mom can felt you a blankie or sweater. If she felt like it, that is. Hee Hee!

Lisa, Jack and Baby said...

Thanks for coming to visit us from Poppy Q's today. We love the story of all the cats getting a home. We got our home after our last human took us to the vet to be put down cuz she didn't want us anymore. What! Our new mom would never do such a thing.

Jasmim said...

The PM is a class act!

Hi Shade. Looks like the PM is working on a very interesting project. You might want to help knead the wool fibers into shape for her, too! You have a very good PM to give up her sunny chair to you.

Mickey,Georgia , Tillie said...

Mickey likes to steal Mom nice ,cozy computer chair. Mom has to sit on the cold,hard wooden chair!! hahaha

Great idea to take the warm and sunny chair, hehehe.
Here it is raining all the day ...no sunbeams..
The color of the felting wool looks wonderful. We are curious what that will be.

I don't see how your mum would dare move you Shade!

LizzyBean said...

Wow, Shade, you are quick! Monger used to glare at Dad Bean until he moved from a seat that Monger coveted and thought was rightfully his. What is felting? Looks like a soothing activity. I want to take up some kind of hand work.
