i know, i know i have been writing endlessly about the animals these past weeks but we have a lot going on with them.
this week, as a little present to the animals of the house hold, we got new beds for everyone. for the cat boys, Ginkgo and Bamboo, i made kitty cushions for their baskets and stuffed them with camping foam. they were super easy to do and after i sprinkled a little cat-nip on the beds, they were in love. i simply measured the basket size and added two inches to each side (if you are using poly-fill you can add only one inch) when cutting my fabric. i added the extra inch all around because of the thickness of the foam i filled them with. a zipper was added on the top for wash-ability and wa-la, two new cat beds.
for the pups i contracted out. Rainier is tough on dog beds and we wanted on that would last so we went back to Bow Wow Beds who has an Etsy store as well as a website you can find here. Amberlii uses canvas, in an awesome selection of colors, to create zipper-less beds. We have had one for Rainier for two years now and it has gone across the county with us and is still in decent shape. We ordered one for Baker (size Large) and one for Rainier (size X-Large). Bow Wow Beds even stencils the pups name on the bed - too cute. You can see Rainier enjoying here bed below. Doesn't she look tired.
So within the next week the whole crew will have comfy new beds, on which to lay their little heads. JD and i can only hope they sleep!
