This shows that cats can learn.

Bella jumped up on the cheap daybed that we had bought at the Macy's clearance center. The stupid thing collapsed and scared her so much she's never jumped up on a bed since. Poor dog. We threw out that piece of junk bedframe and never gone to that store since. That was a bargain that wasn't a bargain.

Money saving tip----don't try to save money by buying cheap stuff, no matter the price. It just cost me more to buy a new, sturdy bedframe and let the scrap guys who patrol the neighborhood on trash pickup day make a few bucks on the scrap metal.
