As of a couple of weekends ago, my house is pretty much vacant. With no couch, no bed and a dwindling blanket supply, my poor animals have had to get inventive. Henry simply chooses to lay in his crate when he can’t find a spot. This morning, I found Stench laying in what is serving as my temporary dresser– my suitcase.

Stench has a bed

That’s not too odd. I can see Stench making himself at home in a suitcase under any circumstances. This one, however, is more unexpected:

Jimmie has a chair

(And don’t worry– I will be strategically placing some blankets and pillows in the living room for these poor creatures)

    LoL. How did you get Jimmie to stay in there?

    @Sour Swinger – Okay so here is the backstory on the Jimmie picture. I was working on the computer and I saw Jimmie lay in the suitcase. I KNEW it was going to be a great picture, but when I got up to get my camera, he got up as well. D’oh.

    So, I went back to my makeshift desk WITH my camera and I just waited. Within a few minutes, he got in the suitcase and circled around (the dog circling habit is apparently still a necessity for suitcases) and laid down.

    At that point, I was able to take the picture.

    And I didn’t have to make Jimmie stay in there. He voluntarily got in there AND he slept there after I finished my photo session.
