The under-the-bed dilemma

Dexter and Winston love going under my bed. LOVE IT. It was cute at first... Winston got under the bed and Dexter belly-crawled underneath to chase after him. It was funny. Now it's annoying!

If Winston is out, he follows me upstairs and waits at the bedroom door. I have to be quick and forceful so he doesn't get inside the room. If he does get inside, it'll take me a long time to get him out. He just goes under the bed and hides there, right in the middle where you can't reach him. I usually can lure him out with toys, but he hasn't been responding to that lately! Ugh. I'd let him chill there, except he's peed on the bed twice, so I'm not so fond of him being up there without supervision. He'll sit upstairs sometimes meowing at the closed door. Weirdo.

Now Dexter does it too. He goes under there and if I try to get him out, he goes further. Luckily he's bigger and I can usually reach a body part and drag him out. He's getting bigger though, so now it's a struggle to get him out. I'm afraid he'll wiggle under there one day and I won't be able to rescue him! This bed is heavy too.

So this is my dilemma: They love being under the bed, I hate it! lol. I just have to be quick to shut the door for the cat, I guess...
