When I reviewed the Jackson Galaxy Donut Cat Bed in February, I mentioned in the review that I had a feeling that we would need to get a second one, since Allegra and Ruby both love this bed so much. Allegra in particular surprised me, since she’s usually pretty lukewarm about cat beds.
Initially, the girls worked out a sharing arrangement between the Donut Bed and the PetFusion Ultimate Lounge Bed, which I also had in my office at the time. They both love that bed, and for a while, this seemed to work. They would alternate who slept in which bed. Until it didn’t work anymore.
There were too many times when Ruby, who can be a little brat sometimes, simply didn’t like it when Allegra was in the Donut Bed. She would pounce on a peacefully sleeping Allegra. Allegra is a lover, not a fighter, so she would simply leave, and then watch Ruby curl up in the bed from across the room. You should have seen her sad face! When I mentioned this to our friends at Jackson Galaxy, they immediately sent us a second bed.
Within seconds of putting the second bed in my office, Allegra was in it. She was one happy girl!
I was actually going to have the girls tell you about all of this themselves, but there was so much shouting and arguing over who had the story straight that I told them if they couldn’t be respectful of each other, they were not allowed to talk on the blog.
Once Ruby discovered that there were now two Donut Beds in the office, she quickly claimed the original one.
For the most part, this new arrangement is working. Every once in a while, Ruby still decides that she has to be in the bed that Allegra is in, and I caught Allegra a couple of times hovering over a sleeping Ruby. Because – well, they’re cats.
Ruby: Allegra, is Mom mad at us?
Allegra: Why would you think that, Ruby?
Ruby: Because she wouldn’t let us write on the computer.
Allegra: That’s on you, little one. You were being so bratty that she had to ask for a second bed. And then you wouldn’t shut up about kicking me out of the new bed. You just never know when to stop, do you?
Ruby: blows raspberry at Allegra.
Ruby: But Allegra, I don’t want Mom to be mad at us.
Allegra: She’s not mad at us. She loves us, even though I sometimes wonder what she sees in you…
Ruby: I’m going to spend extra time cuddling with Mom today.
Allegra: Good! Then I can have both beds to myself!
