Flat Friday

I was all folded up in the top sheet, flattened out and my head was pointed toward the headboard.  That's where I was.  I made am amazingly small lump I am told. Also, that is a parchment, sadly a real animal parchment of a Latin chant that mommy bought in Spain some time ago.  And the pictures are her when she was thirteen.  Watercolors.  Her middle son framed them and put them up.

Last two nights when Mom and I go to bed, I have  leaped up and laid on her chest as always.  But now, instead of getting off after 10 minutes or so, I lay my little head down across the mountain range there and go to sleep.  I am totally flattened too when I do.  Both arms and legs are all pointed out to their respective sides and my head is flat as a fritter on her as I snooze.

She doesn't have the wherewithal to make me leave.  Used to be turning out the light was a sure fire way of making me leave.  This time, I eventually did but only to creep softly to her side in the middle of the bed..taking up the rest of the available room.

Mom tried to stand it but couldn't and turned to her unfavored side, the right side and of course, she was balanced delicately on the very edge while I reposed grandly in the rest of the bed (as it should be).  She could only stand that so long so she cautiously turned to her left side.  She put out her hand gingerly and yes, I was still there..a cool pool of fur at waist level. She settled..her nether region poking out from her side of the bed and the rest of her along the narrow edge.  I think she sort of worked her way closer to the middle throughout the night.  I moved, but I don't recall what time and she could finally spread out.  That's life with a furbaby who rules.

Boomie, I meant to tell you.  My yellow Nip Nanner is green with drool.  I love it.  xoxoxoxox And here I am with my Silvervine pillow too.  xoxox

Have a furry Friday efurrybuddy.  xox

  1. Katie, your mom should be glad that there is only one of you. Try having five cats doing the same as you do at night. It is so much fun. Hope all of you have a great day.

  2. We hope your Mom didn't get a frost bitten bottom when she didn't have enough covers!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  3. You are an excellent hider, Miss Katie! Those are fine portraits of your Mom. You don't really need that much of the bed, Miss Katie...maybe your Mom should claim a bit more of it. :-)

  4. Mom loves you very much to permit you to take up so much of her bed!

  5. Dear Katie, you must let your mommy have a little more room in the bed. She needs rest to have the energy to wait on your every whim :)

  7. I agree with Marg, Katie. I have 7 indoor kitties, and I never sit down without at last 2-3 crowded around me. I love how you sleep across your mom. I cherish those moments myself. My tabby Buddy is 22 years old now. He can't snuggle anymore because he's so arthritic, but he slept in the crook of my left arm for 19 years and I miss having him there. Now he sleeps in a cup bed where he is more comfortable. Love your blog! Please tell your friends to visit mine www.kimberleykoz.com or Herman's www.wonderpurr.com We love to meet new cat people!

  8. Wow Katie! How do you get all that wonderful floof so flat like that??
    Good work keeping the human company all night. I'm sure she appreciates and loves that you are so very comfortable!

  9. Sounds like Mommy is going to have to start getting out of bed and getting back in on the other side! No matter what, I always insist on lying to the FRONT side of Mom. Even if she is very close to the edge, I squish in there. And when she manages to roll over, I switch to the other side.

  10. Katie, you are so lucky!! Only a Mommy that is completely, utterly and wholly smitten with their baby would do all of that, just to avoid disturbing you. Well, of course I do the same for my cats!

    Oh, and please tell your Mom thanks for her wonderful comment on my blog today. I'm so happy she has your love and vice versa!!

  11. You have it so good and are such a special one to get your Mom all to your self. Have a wonderful weekend! Purrs...

  12. We just love the description of your night-time arrangements. The Beebs is pretty good about not hogging the bed too much but when Sei-Chan or Genji decide to join in the fun, #1 does occasionally find herself teetering on the edge too...

    Purrs,
    The Chans

  16. I wonder if there's ever a bed that's big enough for a kitty and her Mom. :) I haven't really slept with Mommy because we aren't allowed on the bed (when Daddy's around). Mommy tried once, but I kept asking to go out because I wanted to be in my hammock!
    I'm so happy you have loved your ripe nip nanner till it's raw green! And it makes my heart sing to see you playing with the silvervine pillow. <3

    Your Boomie

  19. I came back to comment on your comment on my post. Ah yes, the horking up - the first go has the big hairball in it, and then a couple more puddles of stomach liquid spread around. Fortunately as often as I can I hork on the beige rugs, not the blue-gray ones. Though not always. We kitties are responsible for a lot of non-redecorating around here. (Beaded Tail kitties came up with that concept).

  20. That is just more proof that you are as special as we all thought pretty Katie!

  21. Katie, we are responsible for a lot of numbness to mommy because of not letting her move at night too. She loves the feel of our fur against her so she deals with it which is the way it should be!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Katie! I hope you appreciate your Mom. She treats you like a queen! lol. Our Snickers is like you. And when we try to move her off the bed, she looks at us with her big saucer shaped, special eyes.. and says.. 'but why?? why must i go?' So i just don't have the heart...

    ReplyDelete
  23. what a smart girl. could you give our mom lessons? she just makes us move.....

    ReplyDelete
  24. That is just as it should be Katie. Dad has nearly half the bed, we have half and mum gets about 6 inches on the edge, or so she says.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Katie, we lay on our mom's legs when she tries to sleep and she can't move at all. So you keep sleeping on your mom like that. You know she loves it.

  26. TW reads these posts with envy though she should be glad she has her entire side of the bed.

  27. I am the only one here who can make herself REALLY flat... that is because I am half flat to begin with!

  32. LMFTO!!! I don't get on Mom's body...but I make sure she has to hang her leg off the side of the bed so I can have sufficient room...since I came to be furramily here...Mom says she has never ever had more than about 10 inches of bed...and ours is king size...Dad?...he just snores the night away and never minds where I am...heh...heh

  35. Wow - M just noticed those two pictures your mom painted when she was in high school. She is an excellent artist and should get back into using that talent again.
