There’s a disused downspout splash block in our backyard–colloquially known as “The Green Thing”. Being made of plastic and designed to channel water, it dries more quickly than almost anything else in the yard.
In the current wet weather, it’s become quite popular with the Backyard Bunch.
I’m sure the fact that it’s almost perfectly positioned to catch the afternoon sun has nothing to do with its popularity.
Of course, cats being cats, politics comes into play.
Fortunately, the art of compromise is not lost.
Though I think GT won that round of negotiations. Not only does he have The Green Thing, but he’s also got a butt warmer. MM just has a warm, dry spot for her left cheek.
