Caturday

Kitties, thought I would show you my favorite place to be in the middle of the night on mom's side of the bed so she can't straighten her legs out.  That entails her shifting to a catty corner (no pun intended) position.  This is of course when I am not snuggling up to her back.  Then she can't move at all except she can straighten her legs (till I surprise her by being there at the foot of the bed...again).

By the way, I look like a bigger girl than I am.  I weigh eleven pounds but I can spread out and cover the entire bed.  Ask Mom.

Mom wanted me to tell you that my horking has gone down considerably and she thinks it's because she quit using a regular brush on me and started Zoom Grooming me a month or so ago.  She gets out a lot of furs that way and then she runs the regular brushie over my furs for soothing and to catch any still lying there.  My horks are smaller, less frequent and only 2 at a time...sometimes just one.  That is a pleasant thing after the all time huge number of SEVEN in a row one day (in diminishing size).  I know mom thinks that the more efficient brushies with the Zoom Groom have helped a lot.

Just sayin'.




She said she knows the bed looks awful without its blanket and all the wrinkles.  But it holds us both up in the nitenite time.

Katie, we would like to know more about which Zoom Groom you have and like. I, Simba, do not pike brushing except the head and spine. And that doesn't get rid of most of the fur.

Simba said...

Like, not pike

It's good to hear you're horking less! We just looked up the zoom groom and it looks pretty interesting. Newton doesn't let the head peep use the slicker brush or the furminator on him, and he's the one in the most need of it. If there was a Horking King of Florida, he would have a crown. We'll have to get the head peep to get one of those, because his horking during the night delays breakfast time.

What a lovely accessory you make to that bed, Katie.

Hope you have a wonderful Caturday. XOXOXO

SailorEdgar said...

Glad to hear that you are horking less often! That is beneficial to both you and your Mom.

It is an interesting trick of foreshortening that you look much larger than the pillows.

Myst sleeps in the same place!
I have to sleep at a diagonal :P

It's the camera's perspective, Katie!

We have the ZoomGroom and love it and our mom uses it to de-fur our bedding before she washes them - mostly terry towel or fleece to cover over our furniture. Yes, we own it all and fur is supposed to go on Furniture.

We also have the Zoom Groom and it works the best! So easy to use and very comfy for the cats, they all like it. We follow up with the pokey brush to collect all the loose furs.

Purrfect Caturday for naps. My precious Oliver's napping on the foot of my bed right now!

We love our zoom groom and we give it bunny kicks when Mum has done a zoom too many so she knows to stop. Mum sometimes has to have a little snip with a tiny pair of scissors on Hannah's tummy furs as it's almost impossible to untangle the curls there without it pulling which makes her meow but that is always in the summer when she's been out in the garden chasing butterflies!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Sleepy time is good.

Eileen said...

You looks so comfy on the bed Katie.

We pins mom to the bed too. Sami at her feet, Sasha by her side and Saku on the other side of the bed. She says she gets stiff and sore but we know she lubs it, MOL

Sasha, Sami, & Saku

We have a Zoom Groom but Mommy has never used it on us. She says it doesn't seem to work so well on short furred kitties like us. We think she's just being lazy.

Ragdoll Mommy said...

Looks comfy! Take care

Marg said...

That is great news that the horking has become less. Good for that new tool. HOpe you all have a great week end.

Beth said...

I am glad you are horking less Miss Katie. That is good news for you and mom both. xx

ANGEL ABBY said...

Katie that is all good news. You are lovely lying there on the bed. Miss Boo sleeps most nights between Momma's knees. Mom learned a long time ago to only sleep on her back because of her vertigo attacks.

Quinn and Angel brandi said...

Very good news, sweet Katie. I don't usually hork, but Mommy uses the Furminator on me all the time, and there are far less sneezes at our house.
And Mommy is LOUD!

Tillie and Georgia said...

Katie, you look SO cozy on "your" bed ;) heehee
We love the Zoom Groom too as it feels like a massage !
turn time off david myles

Brian said...

I am sure gald the Zoom is helping you pretty Katie!!!

Cathy Keisha said...

Is the Zoom Groom anything like the FURminator? Pop has done that to me in a long time. Yes, we kitties know how to lay to take up the entire bed. MOL! Ticky used to lay by TW's feet or on her legs so she couldn't move them.

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

I am so glad to hear you are doing better with the throwing up issues, Katie!

Pattyskypants said...

What's a zoom groom?

Mariodacat said...

So happy to hear you are horking less. It might have a lot to do with being zoom groomed, That reminds M, she said she has to pick one of those up - just in case I'd like it. I've been getting Furminated whenever I'm outside, and boy I really lose a lot of furs then.

BostonBoy said...

When I look at the bottom half of the picture towards the lower right hand corner I see a face with a very wide mouth. Of course I've been drinking since noon. Naw! only kidding. I started at two.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

I don't know Katie... You could get a little more distance if you uncoiled your tail and stretched your paws out.. I am betting you can cover a lot more of that bed! Let's see if we can get your mom to sleep in a tight little ball, ok? hee hee!

Sweet Purrfections said...

Glad to hear the zoom groom is helping!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

1. The Human says your bed looks 10x neater than ours.

2. I am soooo happy your are horking less. It can be a satisfying experience, but too often and it becomes very tiresome, even though it *is* fun to watch the Humans clean up, heh heh.

3. Did you see that Nellie crowned The Baby at Katnip Lounge Queen of Mohave Meadows? It is nice to have a new member of our Royal Family, isn't it? Perhaps we should pop over to visit one day?

4. Love you!!!

Sushi said...

your bed looks very neat. looks very comfy too. momma had to google what a zoom groom is. haha!

Anonymous said...

Katie I'm glad to hear your horkies are fewer in number but still, it's no fun when we go through all that trauma don't you think? My Mom thinks I'm nuts to eat grass from outside because it almost ALWAYS leads to a good old hork but we kitties gotta do what we gotta do! I like your beddy spot. That's where I used to sleep - right where my Mom would have LIKED to have her legs...tee hee

Kitty Hugs, Sammy

Tamago said...

Katie san, it's great you are horking less. Zoom Groom sounds wonderful brushie, effective and comfy.
You look pretty lying on the bed. I love when Niko is waiting on the bed for me to join him in the night :-)

Jenn said...

Katie your bed looks comfy! You remind me of my Maine Coon, Sadie who passed through the Bridge in 2006. She was difficult to groom because of her very long fur as well- I wish I had the Zoom Groom at that time!

Austin Towers said...

Never heard of the Zoom Groom, but as I have short furs, I don't hork much, at least not in public! mol

GreatGranny said...

Sweet Katie, it's good you don't hork so much anymore.

Your mommy is lucky to just have the one of you in bed. We never get more than six, but that is with two humans as well. We wish they would find someplace else to sleep. Glad the horking is down to a minimum. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Katie, I think you are big like Grizelda & Chloe Jo. Maggie is bigger. Chloe Jo & Grizeldaa's mom was a Maine Coon. Maggie is a Maine Coon. We wonder if your birth Mom or Dad were. (Shh...Chloe Jo thinks this is her birth mom because she & Grizelda were bottle fed from the start. Chloe Jo will always be a baby.)

Flynn said...

I love the zoom groom too Katie. I like the furminator as well. It is like having a good scratch.
