New furniture

It has been some time since the furniture in the Manor has been rearranged. 

A part of my reluctance to move the furniture is that I want to keep the swinging perch in the same place, as that was Raspy’s perch.  It is interesting that the others do not sit on it.  Since her passing, I have seen them (Cagney, to be more precise!) sit on it twice & one of those occasions was a few seconds after I said, “They don’t sit on Raspy’s perch”!

Just before Christmas, Atilla, Cagney & Bezukhov received a lovely big parcel of goodies from a very kind follower.  In amongst the goodies is a book – I hope they do not mind that I read it before them.

There is also a delightful swing with lots of beads, leather & paper to play with.  I have hung the swing & the other swinging perch with the hole in, outside the Manor to get them used to them.  Atilla was first to investigate.  She promptly starting chewing the wood of the swinging perch.  She even pecked at the pretty swing but did not sit on it.

The pretty swing has now replaced one of their bedtime swings.  Gradually, I will replace/move the other furniture, & I suspect Raspy’s swinging perch will be the last to be moved.

For information, bedtime sleeping positions in recent weeks have been as follows:

  • Atilla – her perch but very occasionally a front swing.
  • Cagney – top of one of the front swings but very occasionally the peg.
  • Bezukhov – back top perch (he has claimed that as his) or top of one of the front swings.
