As you know Bonus is our scaredy-cat. He freaks out over most things like the opening of a soda bottle, crumpling of paper, someone ringing our door bell or god forbid someone else but Wille and I actually entering our house. Oh wait, that sometimes scares him too.
When we moved in 18 months ago we noticed that he liked to go hide in the basement as opposed to anywhere else in the house and when he’s anxious he still does. So we’ve made arrangements accordingly. He has a hidey-hole in the boiler room, the litter box behind a door and a little dining area too in case he “needs” to stay down there a little longer.
I didn’t want to place the bowls straight on the floor though so when I saw these stylish placemats at one of my favorite stores I picked one up. So now Bonus and Mini (who also likes to hang out down here now that it’s my bedroom) can dine in style.
