Update on bedtime positions
24 August 2011Posted by on
After about 3 weeks of not sleeping on a bedtime swing, Atilla has finally returned to the loft area. This has meant we are back to shuffling again.
The last few nights she has slept on each swing, the back one, the front one & the round one…. generally whichever swing was available. Tonight she claimed the front swing first. Cagney settled on the round swing next to her & Bezukhov on the back swing. This left Raspy still on her swinging perch & no bedtime swing, only the fixed perch left in the loft area. I could see in her eyes that this was not an acceptable state of affairs.
Still, I was not too concerned because I thought there was still time for either Cagney to move to the top of a swing or Bezukhov to move to the fixed perch which he sometimes sleeps on. In the end, Bezukhov got off his swing (I think only for a brief stretch) & Raspy dived on it quickly. Bezuky decided to squeeze onto the round swing with Cagney but that caused a bit of a kerfuffle resulting in Cagney retiring to the top of Atilla’s swing which is where he probably would have chosen to sleep for the rest of the night anyway!
All is calm. For now.
