I guess I left myself wide open for that, didn't I?
What I SHOULD have said is, why is it that cats think they have to lie on top of items you have placed on the bed, such as boxes of candy, the day's mail, ... even Marlin's 1911 holster (which btw, Sheba did lie on last night. Marlin looked high and low for the silly holster, and didn't find it until he stopped to pet Sheba, who was curled up on the bed, and she raised up just enough for him to see the holster underneath.
You did good, my man!
Thanks, I appreciate that!
