So this afternoon we brought the frame home, put it together, and put it on its little stilts. Because this bed is larger than our full-sized one, it came with a cross-bar; so we had to put books and a brick underneath it. When we got it all set up Remmy came running in and the first thing she did was crawl underneath it.
Trout didn't care much except she likes that she doesn't have to jump so far to get up on the windowsill (you can see her on the left edge of the picture below).
So now the bed is gigantic. It takes a bit of climbing to get up onto it. When I sit on the edge of it, my feet rest comfortably on the footstool at the bottom right of the picture. Remmy, of course, can't get up on it unless she gets a running start. So we took the Rubbermaid thing that I keep the blankets in and put it where the footstool was so she can use it as a stepladder. It's going to take her some getting used to - we had to teach her and I'm not sure she remembers now.
And that was the extent of our excitement today.
