Ivan feels it is his duty to keep watch over his street. Our house faces east, so the morning watch is especially popular on days the sun beams benevolently in the window. Ivan needed an upstairs observation post so I carried the ottoman up from the living room and added a small donut bed to make a workable perch so he can keep track of what’s happening. He can monitor joggers, deliveries or snow removal and initiate Red Alert if there’s a dog walking down His street.
This is quite a demanding mission, so occasionally he needs to nap upstairs until it’s time to migrate downstairs to his cave bed to rest up from his arduous morning.
