I’m wondering if there’s a new rule in our house that Raven won’t use a new bed until it’s been in the house for nearly a year. Last month I shared a photo of Raven in the little doll bed from Ikea. It took her nearly a year to use that one.
I bought this cozy pink bed December 23, 2016. Raven refused to use it, and she actually seemed afraid of it. I’d try to coax her into the bed with no luck. If I set her in it, she’d leap out. Like the doll bed, it was on the list of items to donate.
The first time I saw her use this bed was December 13, 2017. She wasn’t feeling well and I thought, “this is a different behavior, which makes sense since she feels poorly.” Maybe it would be her comfort spot when she didn’t feel good. Last night she got into the bed again. She wasn’t feeling ill, but she didn’t settle in for a snooze, either. Maybe the flashy box had something to do with that 😉 This bed will have to stay here longer to give Raven a chance to decide whether or not she likes it.
