Winky's New Bed

Remember the old riddle, "When is a boy not a boy?"  The 
answer is, "When he's abed."
Well, that would describe me lately. No, I haven't been abed, but I have been a bed. Specifically, I've been a cat bed.
Winky has been sleeping on me almost every night.  He waits for me to get settled down, and then there he is.
