These were some excellent (and hilarious) tips!
As I'm typing this, my kitty it running around the apartment, rapelling herself off of every piece of furniture, and running into things. She gets the case of the night crazies every single night around this time. I've always wondered why cats do that.
Hope you're staying warm!

My cat Dahlia gets a case of the night crazies every evening, too! She'll run from the bed, through the bedroom, across the front room, and leap up to the top of a chair, then run back down and do it in reverse. Haha. I decided it must be her nightly routine to "maintain her figure." :)

( other cat, Cotton, is much to lazy to take on such acrobatics.)


DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
