Now I must say, I warned Sam several times about his new cat bed and Millie.
It took a few tries and FINALLY Sam walked across his new bed once. After that, this is as close as he would get to it. And that took me about 20 minutes to get to this point (and only because he was getting tired).
Not only did Sam need to claim it as his, he needed to use his new bed. And quickly.
But did he listen? Nooooooo. He did not. And just look at what happened....
Moral of the story: Learn to Listen (oh gee, I'm addressing this to a male cat so why bother?)
UPDATE 1/18/2010, Sam's new cat bed was moved to the master bathroom window ledge - this is where Millie and Sam guard over the yard. Millie has now permanently claimed the bed as hers. Napping in the sun is a favorite for her.
