A New Perch

After I do laundry, I hang a lot of the clothes up to air dry. In the absence of a drying rack, I use the ironing board.

On Saturday, laundry day, Melly claimed the ironing board for her own.

I couldn't figure out what the appeal was of snoozing on wet socks and shorts, but perhaps it had something to do with the excellent view of a certain cranky tabby.

On Sunday, Melly continued to hang out in her new favorite spot:

And here she is on Monday, still hanging out there. Most of the clothes are dry now so I'm going to have to put the ironing board away; I hope Melly isn't too heartbroken!

In a couple of the pictures above, you can sort of see the problem area at the inner corner of Melly's left eye. I've been flushing it out with saline several times a day, which Melly hates, but it really seems to be helping. There is a lot less discharge and the puffiness seems to be decreasing. Such a relief!

Well. We are amazed...we've never seen an ironing board! (mommy is SUCH a guy) But now that we see the possibilities for kitties, we want one!
Melly, paws crossed your eye continues to improve.

Ironing board?
What is that Melly?
I have never seen one.
Momma has a steamer and she steams all of her clothes. We don't like the steamer cause it makes ah steam, and it makes a little high pitched noise.
Melly we hope your eye continues to heal.

We've never seen an ironing board but it looks like a great spot for a nap! We think it should stay up until you are done using it. We're glad your eye is better too Melly!

Poor Melly! She's going to be so sad when her new perch disappears! :)
