Mattress Cat-Work

by Tanner (Housecat-in-Chief)

Mommy wanted to vacuum under the bed the other day and wash the bedskirt. Ths involved pushing the matttress to the side, removing the bedskirt, and then pushing the box spring to get to the floor under the bed. Naturally I volunteered to help.

As soon as she pushed off the mattress I was on it. I had to give it a good inspection. I didn't see any problems.

I looked all around to see if anything else needed cleaning. This was a different perspective for me.

When she pushed over the box-spring, I checked the floor to see if it needed cleaning. It did.

Then I climbed back up to the top of the mattress. I liked the view from up there.

Plus, up top was a good place to be out of her way while she was vacuuming.

From up there, I could supervise pretty well until the box-spring was back in place and—Wait! Where did Alfreda and Arlo come from?

You might know they'd show up after most of the work was done!
