Furry bed.

So we’d had the same duvet cover for like 4 years, and I was getting bored with it. It’s nice enough, brown and tan in a damask pattern, but I was bored and ready to change things up a bit.

I wanted some sort of gray comforter, but it would seem that those are rather hard to find, and as the story of my life goes, every one that I found and liked was astronomically priced. I swear, it really is a curse to be blessed with such amazing taste and no riches to back it up. Thanks a lot, parents. Geez. If you were relying on ME to make the millions, you would have been better off trading off some of the smarts for a little more drive. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I’m just talented enough at things that I feel I don’t really need to work on them as well as not driven enough to exploit said talents.

I digress. This is about our comforter. So anyway, I ended up settling on a nice black duvet cover. I was KIND of disappointed with it because the fabric was so thin, but that’s besides the point. It’s also rather disgusting what they charge for duvet covers. It’s basically buying a oversized pillowcase, yet they rape your wallet. Honestly, I could have made one with two sheets, but I gave up that idea based on the margin for error involved. And the aforementioned laziness.

The black comforter. It seemed like a good idea. Moosh is black and Taco is mostly dark.

NOT DARK ENOUGH. It wasn’t really that noticeable with the brown duvet, but HOLY CRAP my bed is a freaking fur coat. I don’t know if the fabric catches the fur better or I can just see it more, but there is more cat hair residing on my bed than 2 weeks of vacuuming the entire house yields. Again, HOW ARE THEY NOT BALD?

I guess it’s just one of those things where you live and you learn. Or, it’s the perfect time to start shaving the brats. I could even spin that idea by saying it will cut down on hairballs and therefore improve their quality of life! I really should have been in PR. My gift for justification knows no bounds.

But first, I’ll probably have to either figure out how to put mittens on them or encase myself in full body armor.

    You are preaching to the choir on this one, wait I’m laughing too hard to type. I have a small blanket at the end of the bed we’ve tried to get them to stay on…ya right, when someone figures that one out give me a jingle. You’re too funny.

      Aww thanks! That’s a lovely compliment. The boyfriend would disagree, though.

      In the winter, I usually have a blanket at the end of the bed, and mine actually DO like it…I should try that.

    Brown and tan are my go to colors. Basically all else realllly shows. I also have a white dog so, FML. Lol

    I ask myself this all the time. The amount of hair they lose daily is staggering. It covers every available surface, but they are still as fluffy as can be. I will never understand it.

    Before our area rug died a milky death, we had to vacuum it daily due to the sheer amount of globs of black cat fur all over it. During her shedding season, it looked like it was sometimes raining fur. We’ve tried every kind of “shedding” comb, and have yet to find a solution. Great read, btw 🙂
