I Got Her Again

Kitties, something worked to my advantage (like everything doesn't already?) and here's how it went.

We were sleeping in the deep dark nite nite time and as it happens, though I didn't know it as I was reposing more near her knees, Mom woke up.  Her ever present "gotta turn over" ordeal (for me).  (well, for her too what with me there and all).

Anyway, she did turn over and settled nicely onto her left side (her favorite).  Then, as she composed herself to drift back off,  turns out she felt me walking the few steps ever so slowly toward her midriff.  I got there, put out a very soft and barely touching paw tip to see if those were the covers on the bed.  She felt that almost tentative touch and then, after encountering sheet and blanket, I probed again and hit the jackpot.  Mom midriff.  Oh, it was under the covers yes but a few firmer let's-make-sure probes with my delightfully tufted feathery paw, and I moved right on in and settled deep into her midriff.  I settled instantly.  The entire thing took a minute tops. First time she was awake for it.

Kitties, I KNOW she smiled.  I could feel that smile in the night.  She told a friend today that she knew she'd be trapped again or have to disturb me one..when she wanted to turn again.

That time did happen...she moved ever so easily onto her right side and found she was...where else?  the edge of the bed.  I, however, was firmly and warmly attached to her back---myself never having moved.  I would swear she smiled again!

Pretty darn cute.

meowmeowmans said...

SO sweet, Katie dear. It's no wonder (and no doubt) that your mommy smiled. :)

Sherlock, Ash and Traveler said...

Katie you always know how to make the mom smile (and us to!)
wishing you warm holiday wishes and many more to come xoxo

Cathy Keisha said...

I see you sleeping but I don't see your Mom. It's a good thing I don't snuggle cos if TW moved, I'd attack her. One night she put the cover over me by accident and I went berserk and lunged at her. Heh-heh. Sometimes I forget where I am and think I'm back in the shelter or on the street where anything touching me is attacking me.

Katie you are the sweetest kittie I know. M thinks I'm pretty loveable, but Katie beats me by a mile!

Prancer Pie said...

Sweet Katie, you have your Mommy wrapped around your little paw. We think that's adorable. XOXO

You are a superb snugglebug. I enjoy OUR snuggling in our hammock. I hope your Mom didn't mind your sardine breath last night? xoxoxo

Love, Boomie

Hello my darling girl! Well, you have got her right where you want her, huh? She's even SMILING through her inconvenience so as not to disturb you.

Honestly, for a kitty who's not yet owned her person for an entire year, you are running the show. Excellent job! I think soon you may be ready for your royal initiation. When is your First Gotcha Day? We needs to Plan. XOXOXO

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Katie my sweet girl, you are the most adorable thing! I can completely understand your mom smiling and getting close to falling off the bed!

CATachresis said...

Madi and Mom said...

Never give up the warm part of the bed Katie - that's always the especially for cats.

Selina said...

Katie, you JUST described what Morticia does! She sleeps with MomKatt just about EVERY night and, like your meowmy, MomKatt's favorite side is her left side, but she DOES have to "turn over" during the night and 'Ticia is sooo good about it. Well, lately, Morticia's been cuddling up to MomKatt's chest at night when she's turned over on her left side and it makes MomKatt smile even though it wakes her up!

YOU have a pawsome day my furriend!

PURRS!
Selina

PS I don't sleep w/MomorDadKatt 'cause I'm too wiggly!

LP said...

Katie, we know that Mom was smiling. Don't tell her we said that. Sorry we missed you yesterday. Our Mom is just nuts.

ABBY said...

Katie
Mom says I climb like a mountain goat up her body and sleep right under her chin. I make sure she stays on her back the whole night.
*heehee*

Pattyskypants said...

So, Katie, can I tell you how many times I have been kicked in the head? Mai mom's sleeping habits are like some kinda kung fu routine! If she ever rolled over on me . . . SQUOOSH! xxoo Bhu

Alasandra, The Cats and A Dog said...

For some reason Mommy doesn't smile when I snuggle with her. I think it has something to do with the time she woke up with her ear dripping blood. ~Scylla

Rykers Boyz n Allie said...

SailorEdgar said...

Are you spoiled, Katie, or what? :-) Gracie likes to lie between me and Ron. Gracie prefers that I lie on my back or left side (facing Ron). If I lie on my right side (facing the wall), Gracie will get out of the bed. Don't know why.
