A few months ago, I finally convinced Mr. Higgins to let me get a cat tree. Our couch has been the cat's scratching post and now it's shredded. We get to go couch shopping in the next few weeks - oh, joy!
Sidious, the obstinate stuck-up thing, has refused to go near the cat tree. Sigh.
Dooku, however, took to it immediately, with the help of some catnip. He's been scratching happily away. My boy makes me so proud! He also loves to sit on it and watch the birds in the birdbath.
And now to find a new couch and hope it lasts longer than the current one.
