I don't often snap pictures with my phone, because the quality is so poor compared to my SLR. But I couldn't walk by without a shot of this. Never, in the decade I've had Tux, has he ever paid ANY attention to any of the scratchers we have (with the exception of the Curl when we first got it). He doesn't scratch them (and can't now with only one paw) and certainly doesn't lay in them, much preferring the human couch or bed.
But for whatever reason, he's taken to hanging out with Peno on her new one. I've seen him there twice, and even Dave reported that he's been hanging out there when he's been home. These cats just keep getting weirder.
