This is the sight that greeted me last week when I walked into my parent’s back kitchen. Their cat, or as my mother says “Your father’s cat”, taking 40 winks.
In a bucket.
Apparently, it’s become a daily afternoon occurrence.
The cat likes it because the bucket is just the right fit. It is nice and cosy, and for some reason dogs don’t bother cats in buckets. Who knew?!
Now that the cat has commandeered it, nobody is going to use the bucket for anything else. So she has a ready-made napping zone just where she likes it.
I think we should all take a leaf out of that cat’s book.
Stake your claim, mark your space and take a break.
Oh to have a me-sized bucket all for myself!
Note for readers: Depending on your country of origin, the Irish ”back kitchen” is known to you as a Mud Room, Utility Room or Laundry Room. It’s that place you leave the mud, boots, coats and laundry. And the cat in a bucket. If you happen to have a cat.
