We’re gettin’ kinda crowded.
None of us mind, but sometimes blankets get stolen. Inna summer, that’s all good. If it’s hot, nobody minds losin’ a blanket or a sheet. But inna winter, brrr! It’s no good wakin’ up inna mornin’, shiverin’ cuz the fire’s burned down low an’ cold came creepin’ inna window.
We’ve been talkin’ bout how we could fix it. There’s not much room for another bed inna room. Meikiko’s got a tiny sleep-sack, but she’d be onna floor then, an’ there’s bad drafts down there. Plus she’s tiny. She doesn’t take much room anyhow. Wren’s thinkin’ maybe we outta get bunk beds? There’d be two beds in one space then, an some could sleep up top an’ some in the bottom. Or maybe we gotta build an expanding onna house. I dunno how to do that though. But we could try.
Meikiko thinks we outta sleep in hammocks, an’ hang ’em onna wall or get a hammock-post to tie to for the middle with bolts inna wall. It’d be like bunk beds, cuz there’s be hammocks over hammocks. But we’d miss out on keepin’ each other warm! Great inna summer, maybe not so much inna winter?
If none of that works, though, Wren says she can knit individual blankets for alla we. That way nobody’s stealin’ inna night without meanin’ to. An’ I outta make Riley a li’l puppy bed too so she has somewhere warm for her. But it’s kinda nice, havin’ a sweet warm pup curled up nearby. Maybe she’ll just keep sleepin’ with me.
