At the appropriate time I fed Jackson, but then I forgot the job waiting for me in the bedroom. By the time I got back there 45 minutes later Jackson was curled up on the top left corner of the mattress. I wanted to get the job done, so I figured that if I started the making process Jackson would get annoyed and leave. I started by putting on three of the four fitted sheet corners. No response from the cat. I put the flat sheet on top of the fitted, tucked the bottom edge in, and added hospital corners. Still nothing. I added the blanket on top of the sheets, repeating the tucking in and cornering process. The cat woke up enough to give me the stink eye. Finally, I threw the bedspread over everything and shoved the bottom end between the mattress and footboard. I could tell Jackson was annoyed, but not annoyed enough to move.
|I was here first!|
|Extra layers of bedding mean extra padding, right?|
It took two hours until Jackson decided to get up. When I heard him move. I quickly swooped in and finished the bed. Jackson took the change in stride and settled in for his next nap in the spare bedroom.
