So There We Were....

So there we were.  close to 2300...lights out, sheet pulled up to my shoulders and we are snuggled together and it's time to sleep.

Fast forward:  Mom here.  A really boisterous electrical storm ensued  at three quarters of an hour after midnight  while Katie and I slumbered.  Impressive thunder claps and some continuous strobe effect lightening lit the room.  Katie's back was still pressed into my chest and the sheet was still up to her shoulders.  I was glad I was able to be there to keep her from being frightened.  WELL.  She slipped on out to the floor and gone!  Leaving ME to fend for myself.

I laid there comfy and with more freedom so I settled in again nicely.  I heard an announcement meowed out a little more loudly than usual.  She always announces when she brings in her babies.  Then I noticed she did not get into bed as she came into the room  so I drifted off again.  Another announcement.  And three more times.  Finally she slipped in and just laid in a fur circle near my arm.  (I was on my side).

In the morning I saw 5 of her babies.  A first, and two new ones were added to the usual ones.  White mousie whose tartan was ripped off by fangs.  And Red Heart Mousie finally came back to the fold.  Of course, Donkey and floppy duckie and floppy mousie were there.  So I am assuming she left the relative safety of the bed to get her little family in and safe with us.

Katie Here:  I am getting tired of her complaining!

  1. The boys don't really mind storms unless they're really bad, it's actually me who freaks out!

    Katie is so cute with her "babies," possibly bringing them so they'd be safe. It's hard to get a good night's sleep, though, when your cat is meowing off and on all night, as I too well know. LOL.

    Thanks for stopping by to wish Derry-Bear a happy birthday. :-)

  11. I think you were very brave, KI. Not every kitty would venture away from their mom to rescue their babies during a storm. I am not afraid of thunder and lightning, so we are a lot alike.

    Love and licks,

  12. Well Katie I don't think your Mom was complaining as much as she was impressed that you take such wonderful care of your babies. Bringing them into the bedroom where they could be safe and snug from the storm - that's what Moms do! You're such a good Mom to your little toy family.

    Hugs, Sammy

  22. Nellie used to do that to me in Calgary, including bringing her toys to bed.
    Now she's a little deaf and we have few thunder storms in Vancouver, it never happens.

  25. We collect around TBT when thunderboomies stike (like couple nights ago) and push ta get unner the blankets with him. But 3 of us unner there is a bit fussy. So Marley curls up a foot away, Ayla curls up next to his chest, and *I* Iza drape over his knees. We all feel SO safer that way.

    Though we hafta admit that when some REALLY loud BOOMIES happen right over the house, we all get closer to him.

  33. That's what I was thinkin', too! That's just what I was thinkin' while reading your post. That Katie was bringin' her babies into bed with you, wanting to keep 'em safe and sound and away from the storm.

    Purrs,
