A few days ago I wrote about the turmoil Pepper has experienced at bedtime since moving into his new room. Well, today we found a perfect solution in an unexpected form.
Our cat, Zoe
Debbie's cat, Alara
We discovered this solution by accident. Alara was in Pepper's bed at bedtime last night. He was delighted to see her there, so Matt just left her. Not a tear from Pepper, and he was asleep in just a few minutes. At naptime today, Alara didn't want Pepper's bed, so we put Zoe, in bed with him. He was out in just a few minutes without a single tear. Bedtime tonight, Alara was happy to get in bed with Pepper. He was out in just a few minutes without a single tear. Both cats are thrilled to share Pepper's bed because it is soft and warm, and he is a gentle little boy. Hooray for the kitties! They have finally redeemed themselves for the pee-in-the-garage incident!
