We did that,too!! Our old mattress was killing me.
I do not shop for the beasties. Santa does.
The dogs are getting little fleece blankets they can fluff to their hearts' content. Jack is definitely going to get more chewbones or something. I am not sure about Nessie. She isn't a big chewer or toy player. I may get her some doggie cookies.
The kitties get toys that roll and have catnip in them.
We're getting a Bob-o-pedic. (Only Pam or another N.E. person will know what that is
) It even is one of the ones that you can adjust the height of the head or foot. I think it will really help with my comfort at night. (due to my RA) It was 1/3 the price of a Temperpedic, and comes with a 20 year warranty. We figured for that price, if we need to replace it sooner, it's worth it. We also did some research and found out that the moving parts of ALL of these beds come from just 2 manufacturers, no matter who is selling the bed. It's what you put on top of them that makes the difference in price.
I forgot, we're going to have to get another sofa throw for Kodi, because we did go ahead and order the leather sofa and love seat. They come with a 5 year protection plan against any damage (including pet damage). If they get any scratches, rips, etc., they will send professionals out to repair the damage. I think they will be fine anyway... Our leather recliner is at least 10 years old, and it looks like new. We ended up finding a set we loved at Jordan's that is a discontinued model, so they were 50% off.
And as far as poor Snowbelle is concerned, if I buy her any toys, Kodi just claims them. So we simply pour her catnip directly on the floor so she can eat it, roll in it and have a really good drunk.
