I'm thankful for my perch. I know there are a lot of great cat trees out there, tall with multiple levels. Mine is short and has only one level, but I'm short and need the couch to get in it because I can't jump very high. However, the real reason for my thankfulness is it's a refuge from Pierrot. After breakfast, he loves to chase and pounce on me. I like to bathe and digest my food. My perch is my safe zone. Plus, it's very comfy.
