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!
