A husband secretly built a tiny bedroom set for the family cat and caused his wife to nearly die from laughter.
Meet Ollie. Ollie was adopted by the Carlson family last January and is already a fixture of the household. He’s loving, cute, cuddly, and best of all, gets along well with the children despite the screaming and poking.
Ollie’s arrival was also a bit of a fun story. Chris, the husband, is a bit of a prankster: he told his wife Julia he was going out to get groceries and instead came back with a cat. Julia didn’t mind though, as she and the rest of the family immediately fell in love with Ollie. She even wrote on her Facebook post that she “happy cried.”
Fast forward a few months later and everything is good, except for one thing: Julia and Chris recently got a California king-sized bed, but still hadn’t gotten a frame for it so it’s just sitting on the floor. Chris is a bit of a hobbyist and had been promising to make a bed frame for them to save a few bucks over a store-bought model.
One day, Chris announces he’s finally going to fix the whole bed situation. Julia thinks to herself “Yes! We'll finally have a bed frame for our new mattress,” only to find out a few hours later that this bed frame is not for their new California king-size mattress.
It’s for the cat.
“My wife had been searching online for cat teepees and things like it, so I knew she’d find it hilarious,” Chris told Bored Panda in an interview.
And indeed, Julia reportedly began snort-laughing hysterically after seeing the itty bitty bed frame complete with itty bitty mattress and itty bitty bedside table.
However, even with such luxurious accommodation, Ollie still prefers sleeping on daddy. It’s a cat thing.
