The Cushion

 We ordered this cushion from QDIDirect-Home Trends catalog. It was labeled as "5 inch rising cushion" with the following description: Sit, relax and rise easily from a seated position. Our super thick cushion distributes body weight evenly and relieves pressure for hours. Soft faux sheepskin elasticized cover is removable and washable. _Poly foam fill 14"x14"x5"H.
I am showing this photo of Kitty, Mimi and Cousin Anne from her visit in April to show the area where Mimi sits during the time we have company. Usually she has to put from 2 to 3 throw cushions on the chair so it will be tall enough for her to get up easily. Thus the thought that the 5 inch cushion would help. NOT!!!!! She said it wobbled and felt as if it might throw her from the chair. I rolled up a throw and stuffed it on the side to stabilize the cushion. Did not help, so Mimi went back to the throw cushions she used before. 
When the back was really on the blink, I thought I will try the cushion and see if it works better for me. NOT! I almost landed in the floor and the wobbly movement made the back pain worse. 
We have had it way too long to return so what to do with the cushion. I think I will put it in the black metal chair in the outside corner of the house that you see through the window where I have an old cushion for Moe Cat. 
The Kitty Justice is if Moe kitty does not use it then it is just unusable.

Bury it! That's seems the only good thing to do with it!

I've got a couple of pillows I should do similar with!

I think I will try Moe Kitty first as he might like it in his chair outside. However, if he shuns it I will toss it in the trash. Peace
