What the Dog Destroys, the Cat Employs

Cat on Couch

Sad, Sad Sun-porch Sofa, your bouncy, buoyant cushions were once beloved by humans… until you went to the dogs.

Last December, the Newf discovered your firm support yet soft, supple, cradling effects. And when your cottony fabric was pushed to extremes by the looming weight of our lounging dog, your seams split under the privacy of an impotent couch cover. Your deflated spirit was evident and inconsolable. Your white, fluffy-filler goodness bled into the room only to be toyed with by torturous beast-cats.

The cover removed, your faded shell lay splayed open like a dying Taun Taun on Planet Hoth. (Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back fans, anybody?) Our Jedi cat discovered the warmth of your exposed, cottony fill, as did his brother-friend Jackson, much to Jed’s dismay. And the humans watched your slow death with pained desire for a world of comfort which exists for them no more.

Oh, Dear Sofa, what does your future hold? Will your shapely form be recast in fabric by a brand new Singer machine? Can your bountiful fluff, since scattered to all four corners of our dwelling, thrive internally once more?

We shall see, dear Sofa. We shall see…

    Love it! Nothing goes to waste!

  2. If you know anyone with a sewing machine, that looks like it could be fixed fairly easily. Might want to consult a seamstress or upholsterer. ;D

  3. It seems as though you should let the Newf have this one…and the cat seems to be ok with that arrangement 🙂

  4. Ha ha, that is one happy kitty 🙂

  5. Hi Kim, I’m Anne from Life on the Funny Farm (http://annesfunnyfarm.blogspot.com) visiting from the Pet Blogger Hop.

    This was too funny. Quite the writer you are! Great pics.

    It’s nice to “meet” you. I hope you can pop over to my blog and say hi sometime if you get the chance.

  6. Woof! Woof! Oh A Happy Cat. Golden Meows. Happy Blog HOP Saturday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  7. Awww, well at least the troublemaker is an adorable kitty

  8. Absolutely priceless.

  9. Wonderful! We’ve lost a sofa (or 2) to our pets!

  10. Awwwww, hi kitty! Koly & Fe have similar relationship. Koly destroys things and Fe snuggle up in them.

  11. This is hilarious! At least your cat is using what the dog destroyed. Ours just work together to wreak havoc.

  12. It’s like an ad for recycling. 🙂

  13. Aw. The sofa’s loss is the kitty and doggie’s gain! Happy Saturday.
