25Jan23: Andy eats it up….

Andy stops by…

…to get a nice “scritching”!


I decided to put the newspaper on the lapboard on the ottoman. As you who’ve followed this blog for years know, the ottoman was Andy’s late brother Dougy’s territory. After his death, Andy still recognized it was all Dougy’s, as if the ripped-out corners didn’t signal that to the world! Once I put the lapboard on the ottoman, Andy felt comfortable snoozing and resting on it.

The newspaper? It gives Andy just one more layer of comfort. He spent most of his sleeping time on the newspaper on the lapboard on the ottoman the first day I added the newspaper to the late Dougy’s fortress! While on the newspaper, Andy made sure his body totally touched it, no overlapping onto the lapboard or – heavens! – the ottoman surface itself!
