We have a strange thing in the house!

Just in time for Christmas and a visitor – we have a weird and unusual arrival. Not only is it an interesting sniff, it arrived three days early. Mum saw it on the Petcube while they were at the beach!

We have to report this strange and unusual ‘thingy’ to the Sunday Selfies and the Kitties Blue! Here it is!


Rug mystery arrival
Miranda just HAD to give it the once over, and a good sniff of approval. Of course we ALL gave it the once over except Silver who is off exploring. It goes perfectly with the two sofas, complimenting their lovely sage grey/green colour.

You get more of an idea of the overall effect in the second picture, because the coffee table is there (and no we do not jump on the table!)

Do you give your pet parents new stuff the third degree when it arrives?

    Looks like you’ve got the rug situation under control, Miranda! And it’s a beautiful rug! All my favorite colors! I rent and after ten years of Bear, our carpet is torn and dirty. I never thought about getting another rug to put over it. That’s a great idea!

    Looks really pretty. Are you going to scratch it to test it out?

    That rug is beautiful! A long time ago, we got a new rocker/recliner in here…and Minko attacked it! He didn’t just sniff at it, he used teeth and claws! Wow, he must have wanted the old raggedy chair back. MOL!

    What a lovely new rug!! Mommy LOVES the colours!
    I do like smelling the new stuff. Mommy has a very nice carpet in the basement that was in the living room before all the animals came this summer. It is a silk oriental carpet and Jo Jo loves to claw it. Mommy will not bring it back until I know not to claw the rugs (They are just too convenient .. don’t you think?)

    That is a beautiful rug. The last new rug I bought was a shaggy style in varying tones of beige copper and brown. Flynn gave it a wide detour for 2 days before he decided it wouldn’t attack him, then he discovered it was a very comfy place for a nap.

    That is a very pretty rug. You did the right thing to inspect it though. My kitties inspect every new thing that comes into the house.

    OMC, that is a gorgeous rug! My human always ruins our rugs by dancing on them, so they have to be on cheaper side since they wear out faster.

    That is a gorgeous rug. Our mommy is jealous. She hates our living room and dining room rugs. Our dad picked out the color, and they show every speck of litter and cat fur. What’s this not getting up on the table all about? Are you really NOT cats? Thanks for being great hoppy friends!
