Giving Mom a Treat

Kitties!  Usually when I sleep with mom, I am in a little ten pound ball rolled up against her front or her back.  Last night, just as she was falling asleep, she felt me creeping up in the dark and settling right into her midriff.  She smiled a bit I know and fell the rest of the way asleep.  Hours later, she woke probably to turn over and felt me still there.

 But the "treat" part comes next here---she woke and discovered that I had relaxed and stretched totally out, with my arms stretched out too toward mom's head and my legs all stretched out pointing to her feet.  My back was pressed all along her and I allowed her to pet me while I remained unmoved.  I slumbered on.  She was able to stroke down from my face and whiskers (that was an accident on her part) all the way down to where my tail hooks on. She did that for a few minutes and then she went back to sleep.

That was a treat for momma because I just don't ever stretch all the way out like that with even my arms extended.  I am sure glad for my home and my mom.  She doesn't get a lot of comfortable sleep because she won't move me or wake me (so far) but I guess I'm worth it to her.  MOL.  I know other families with multiple cats are pretty crowded during the night.  I always wondered why we like to sleep with our pawrents or human brothers and sisters.   Can't be the bed because we don't hold the bed down all day as well.

Looks as though most kitties and their mom's say that there isn't a defined difference between girl and boy cats; that it appears to be individual personalities and that the socializing we get (or not) when we are babies makes a huge difference.  There does seem to be a general thought that girl cats are drama queens more than boy cats as well as perhaps a bit more independent.

We fanks you for answering us as another kitty (a boy cat and love bug) and I were discussing the matter and couldn't come to a conclusion.

As for me, and also in parting, mom says I am THE single most all day and all night demonstrative little girl she has ever seen.  Admiral was loving when she was approached or when she crawled into bed but I seem to take the crown.  And that is NOT taking anything from beloved Admiral.  We are all different.

  4. I'm not sure who is the luckiest here. You for getting Mom, or Mom for getting you.

  5. Don't get me started on girlcats and boycats, Miss Katie Isabella!!! My paws can't type fast enough. Girlcats are little divas getting what they want with a twist of the paw.... We mancats sort things out with honour and discretion, but girlcats are sneaky. And....ooooops.
    Äiti here: I better stop ihim before he gets carried away. I think it is down to personality but in a larger group then I think girlcats are more of a problem as they need to be boss, and the more girls, the more conflict. The boys are a bit more laid back. But in smaller groups, I think there is no difference. And it's great for your mum that you are so loving. Really great :)

  8. Regardless of general attributes of boy cats & girl cats, our late Hemingway, a boy cat, could be a drama queen like you wouldn't believe! :-)

    For some reason, Millie only gets on the bed with us when we have our afternoon nap. Maybe that is because she doesn't like to be on the bed with Gracie and Gracie won't get on the bed in the afternoon in Millie is there. Gracie usually spends part of the night with us, between us, sort of stretched out.

  9. You are the lovey cat! While Nicky used to let TW sleep with her arms around him and love him at will, she sez I'm the most loving cat she's had in my own way. Sure, I attack her and draw blood all the time but I freely give kisses and now I let her pet me in bed w/o going for her.

  10. Looks like you've got a good things going there if your mom doesn't roll around on the bed much. How great.

    Have a super day.

    hugs, Max

  11. Awwwwww....such a sweet post! Katie, it sounds like you and your mom are a match made in heaven!! I would be heartbroken if my kitties didn't want to snuggle with me in my bed. And my heart fills with love when Belle sleeps on my pillow, tucked into the crook of my neck, purring away.

    I have a fun little quiz up today, hope you can come by!

  14. Daddy doesn't like us on the bed so we wait till he's away (work travel) then we pile into bed to keep Mommy company. It's pretty crowded and rather uncomfortable for Mommy coz she can't move but she says she doesn't mind. :)
    The way you were stretched out, your Mommy could have used you as a bolster! Hee hee.

    Love, Cosmo, Ling (I ate half a can of tuna for dinner) and Tutu

  15. Binga sleeps that way with my human - all stretched out. I sleep on a pillow at the foot of the bed because 1) as queen, I deserve a sleeping platform, 2) I don't like sleeping next to my human because I am scared she will roll over and crush me - I am less than 6 lbs., and she weighs like 20 times more than I do!

  16. That was one fun snuggle happympretty Katie!

  17. Awwwww that was a treat indeed! Stretched out kitties are adorable, stretched out kitties sleeping on you is SWEET!

    Leo wont sleep on us, and with his size, I think I'd feel squished if he did! But he MUST sleep with us and hates hates hates it when it's Star's turn to sleep upstairs!

  19. You are such a sweetheart Katie! We certainly all are different! My sisfur Isabella sleeps stretched out on our daddy all night but I only come in on cold mornings and get under the covers with Mommy. She loves feeling my floofiness against her legs too!

    Purrs,

    Mom said after contorting for too many nights she just had to have some sleep. So I ended up on the back of my sofa. Which is OK because I love the back of the sofa.

  23. You done great on that nightsleep Katie! It usually takes all 3 of us to nail TBT down at night.

  24. I'll bet she really appreciates those snuggles on a cold winter night.

  25. Mommy says the one of the BEST parts of being owned by kitties is the night time snuggles, and Katie you sound like last night was FAB!
    We laffed about your tail hooking on--you are funny!

  26. Katie, we think you are now so totally comfortable in your home and with your mom that you can stretch all out!! That is so great!!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sounds to us like you've totally relaxed and settled into your home. Best be careful or the Mommy will start callin you names like "my little snuggle bunny". MOL!

  28. Honestly, Katie, when you write stuff like this my Human just stares at me balefully, like I'm a freaking criminal or something.

    NO, HUMAN, sorry, I don't *DO* sleeping with you!! Get a stuffed cat if you need that so bad!! I've been telling her this ALL DAY ever since we first read this. But it doesn't seem to be helping.

    She wants to know if your Mommy would be interested in a trade. She'd let me go for you and a player to be named later. Whaddya say?

  30. It’s a shame but I am nocturnal so am always wide awake when mom wants to sleep hehehe! But means we don’t often sleep in the same area or at the same time! We need to synchronise a bit more. love Austin xox

  31. Katie,

    You were so sweet to give that treat to your mom. I know Morticia makes MomKatt smile a lot during the night when she wakes up to find her curled up between her knees or against her butt.

    Love
    Selina

  32. Yes dear Katie we ARE all different! That is what makes kitties soooo special!
    Your Mom is just the best...she is willing to have less of the bed just to be sure that you are comfortable.
    We are so happy you have such a wonderful Mom and we are so happy that your Mom has YOU!

  35. Hi Katie (and Mom)! How nice for your mom that you stretched out next to her all night. Mama says she loves the different personalities of us kitties. It does seem overall that boys are more easygoing than girls but girls still rule! :) Mama loses a lot of sleep due to me too but it's because I meow very loudly off and on throughout the night.

    Enjoy your weekend!
