Humans have a safe word (not that I would know anything about that!). My cats have a safe spot. The weird part is that it’s not under or in back of anything. If I wanted to, I could scoop them up for a hug, smooch or trip to the vet. It’s a bag.
I change out the bags when they get raggedy. It’s kept in the middle of my family room (and kills any chance of getting into House Beautiful). They will run from any spot in the house to that spot. It’s as if there is an invisible wall protecting them.
Cats are just weird!
Author’s note: I was not able to capture Morgan on it although she uses it too. Mollie, as queen and alpha cat, does not need a box to save her 7 pound self. She rules with an iron paw.
