my cat and I, too alike

So I brought it home and put it on the rug-covered box she hangs out on when I'm on the computer. She wasn't having any of it - wouldn't sit on it warm or cold. So I tried it under the rug, to see if she'd find the warmth plus familiar rug attractive. Nope.

So this afternoon I stuck it over on the bed - and here is the kicker - as though I were going to use it myself. Lo and behold, she's been curled up on it ever since.
