We adopted Ranger from Wayside Waifs and when he arrived he jumped onto our living room couch and it's been his "go to" place ever since. So hence the need for a coverlet and this is the perfect throw. Large size, very warm, and washes easily. Only flaw, we chose "red" for the wording (KC Chiefs, of course) and it's closer to bright pink as the picture shows. But we would recommend this.
