We have such a tiny house that there is essentially no front hall. Once you come inside from the porch you spill directly into the living room. This of course makes me nuts and our next house MUST have a front hall, but I digress…
|Excuse me but I think I was here first|
The non-front hall is not an issue in the summer but winter in Canada is another story. Robert and I come and go out the back door where we have a sunroom/mudroom with a wardrobe for coats and a runner for dirty boots, but when guests come over they use the front and I take their coats upstairs.
|I'm in heaven!|
This Christmas we bought a small mat for the front door so people could wipe their wet or snowy shoes and I figured after the winter is over we would probably just chuck it…how was I to know the cats would LOVE this silly little mat!
|You can't ignore me forever Jimmy|
It's the funniest thing, they take turns on the mat, covet time on the mat and wrestle each other off the mat. What is the appeal? It is an unattractive, cheap, rubber-backed mat from the Costco and you would think it was heated cashmere the way they fuss over it.
|Get lost Ben it's my turn!|
The other day I actually saw Jimmy on the mat squirming around on his back (in ecstasy?) with all fours in the air! I just don’t get it... do you?
