Trout discovered...

That she can go in between my duvet and duvet cover She was playing in there all morning...right up next to my face while I was TRYING to sleep.

I have to say though, it is the cutest feeling to have a lump of cat on you, but not really on you

An boy oh boy, can those claws come through the cover..its quite thin I guess

I have to make sure I always buy really thick comforters because our cats love feet than move at night. So I try to make sure I have as much padding as I can between their mouth and my feet!

Yeah, 1 8-Bit is enough around here, although we love him too!!!

Silly Trout...I'm actually kind of thankful Captain Steuben hasn't figured that one out yet. The "let's-knock-the-heat- register-cover-off-the-wall-and-run-into-the-ducts-trick" was about enough to give me a heart attack!!!

That's so cute! And yes - their claws can get through practically anything, can't they!

Thanks icklemiss, I didn't know what it was, we just call it a comforter or a blanket or a quilt.

When I first came over here and Matt said we should go shopping for a new comforter I was completely confused too, it had always been a duvet for me

At least you know she's discovered how to do it! I remember being frantic because I couldn't find Jamie. We searched the entire house, and accidentally discovered him sleeping between the duvet and its cover after about three hours of near hysteria. Since then, I've only bought duvet covers with zippers instead of buttons.

A duvet isn't a normal comforter though..it is filled with duck down It is sooooooo warm. You can't wash them at home, so you need a cover for them.

Oh lord, they don't have duvets down south! I can't believe that! Maybe it's a Canadian thing, because it's so bloody cold here in the winter. BTW - you can wash the covers! The duvet itself is in a duvet cover that you can zip off and wash!

I would call a duvet an eiderdown quilt or featherbed. I wash ours at home every year in the washer, hang them up (we use two singles on a king-sized bed) for a day or two to dry, and then put them in the dryer with a tennis ball to fluff them. The two we use in winter were wedding presents almost 27 years ago, and are still in pretty good shape after that treatment. We have polyester ones for the summer and spare bedroom, which also go into the washer and dryer.

I didn't know what a duvet was either and I'm not from the south. You learn something everyday!

I just turn up the electric heat and we all get nose bleeds from the dry air!

I guess I got to go out looking for these kind of things instead of power tools.

I guess we don't have them here in PA, because I didn't know what they were either.

Duvets became all the rage in the late 70s in Toronto. I remember how excited I was to get one when I was a little girl because I could crawl inside the cover and make a tent (much like your cat!).
They originated in 18th century France. I believe the word duvet means down (like duck feathers) in french.

My Pekoe discovered the same thing for the first time this morning. I thought he had just burrowed under the covers, but no, he managed to get himself between the duvet layers.

The funny bit was that he couldn't quite figure out how to get out, so I had to show him where the opening was at the bottom so he could be free again.

Kitties and blankets. What a combo.

I never realized how spazzy Milo was until he went after me under my comforter...and when I moved, he bit me in the ass. Now when he's on my bed with me, I have to be vewy vewy careful not to move too quickly or who knows what body part will be pierced next.

Hmmmmmmm, sounds like they are adventurous. Any cat that I have had, has perferred to stay on top on the blknkets. Oh well, much warmer under them, so I guess right now I do not have to share the warmth.
