Bed Hog Extraordinaire

I admit it.  I am a bed hog.  Of the first water.  There are kitties who equal me in expertise, but none better than I am I would warrant.  I can spread out from one side to the other and all the way to the top and bottom.  Mom has the edge to rest on.

Another feature I have is:  I troll the bed at the veriest first light of day checking to see if Mom is conscious.  I wait quietly by her face if it is still dark, testing the waters so to speak.  I lean in close to see if her eyes are closed and if her breathing indicates sleep or (pump paw in the air) just pretending to sleep.

I feel I got her attention (she did) when I horked on the carpet and when I scratched the same carpet a moment before.  Those sounds wake moms up from a sound sleep.  Rather like their baby humans once upon a time when they were stirring in a room away...moms can hear everything.

Mom is going to work out this morning so she may as well get in there and make the bed, dress and assemble her face, pretty much in that order.

you have it all sown up! we know when our mum is only pretending to sleep. She doesn't fool us! Love Darcy, Bingley xxx

Marg said...

That is such a great crown Katie. Glad you have got your Mom's number and know just how to get her up. She should consider herself lucky, our person has at least five cats pushing her out of bed. Have a great week end.

LP said...

Tell your Mama she has it good Katie! There are two dogs and an assortment of cats who consider it their duty to leave an inch on the edge of the bed for the humans every night! It's a wonder the humans can manage their daily animal chores for the lack of sleep!! :)

the critters in the cottage xo

Fuzzy Tales said...

We applaud your bed-hogging abilities, Katie!

And we, too, can tell when the human is faking sleep. Ha.

Have a good weekend, both of you.

Purrs and peace.

Purrs, Miss Kitty

Hannah and Lucy said...

We hope we done't have to curtsey to you Katie because our paws always get tangled up and we end up falling over!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
PS Love the crown darling.

our mom says she will never cease to be amazed at how much space we can consume on the bed :)

Ragdoll Mommy said...

Don't feel bad.... I am a bed hog too! LOL!

Miss Katie you are undoubtedly the "queen" of the bed! :)

The Furries of Whisppy said...

I get to sleep with Mommy while we are being kept separate from each other. I sleep under Mommy's blankie right till she wakes up. :)

BeadedTail said...

You have a great bedtime routine and it's good you get most of the bed!

Tamago said...

Haha you are all ove the bed but mom is lucky to have an edge to rest on :-) The sound of horking up wakes me up too! That's the best way to get humans moving, I think :-)
Have a great weekend, Katie san!

Purrfect Haven said...

.. thanks for the tip off.. have left a comment for Stella.. thanks and kisses to your feline xxxxxx Helen

Mary said...

Katie! You are an expert bed troller! You deserve to be Queen! First thing this morning i stepped in some kitty hork with bare feet and without my glasses on. (Hence the stepping in the nasty.). Lol. But i adore my kitties. All 4 of them. To the moon and back. Have a fabulous weekend sweetie!

Terri said...

Horking always wakes up humans! Jenna gets behind my head on the pillow. That pulls my hair and most certainly wakes me up!

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

You are a Bed Master, Katie!

hay....wear iz de commint we just spended 8 hours typin up heer....

thanx googlee .....

I was trying to say Katie that your crown is beautiful; Nellie has exquisite taste... AND I was also trying to say that your mom should slep on the floor; not only does this give you more room on the bed but she can sleep on the "carpet infractions" and never know they are there.

have a FABulous week end...hugs from dai$y =^..*=

N uz two N POST this time commint ~~~~~~~

It must be a tuxie thing, Katie!!! I do the same thing, MOL.

Yr bed-hoggin' Pal, Salem

Flynn said...

Mum says I take up all the bed too. I tell her it is not me, it is dad who hogs all the space.

Austin Towers said...

Mum wants to know how come a small tuxie can spread to 54 ins square? It's a conundrum! ;)

The Island Cats said...

Katie, we like to take up the whole bed too...but we think you got us beat when it comes to being a bed hog. We love your crown.

SquirrelQueen said...

Wow Katie, you are the master of bed hogging. Your mom should be grateful that you allow her to share YOUR bed. If our mama is taking up too much bed space we have learned how to gradually push her to the edge. It is fun and she doesn't suspect a thing. We love your crown.

Purrs,
Cindi Lou & The Kitty Krew

Brian said...

Yep, Horks R US is something to be proud of sweet Katie!

SailorEdgar said...

The Queen is a harsh taskmistress. :-)

Beth said...

I don't for one minute believe that you are a bed hog Miss Katie! xx

Cathy Keisha said...

If TW isn't awake when I wake up, I bite her in the eye. That wakes her up fast.

Willow said...

Katie super job at making the bed yours and scoping out the best place to be.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

As long as I have my foodz, I don't much care if the Human is unconscious. In fact, I prefer her that way. XOXOXO

Prancer Pie said...

Anything done is worth doing well!

Happy Caturday, pretty girl! XOXO

Pee Ess - that crown looks purrfect on you.

Michiko Johnson said...

Hi Katie!
I'am sorry about your Mum was something not all right until she was scared from hogging in bed.
We love you Katie all the time!
xxxooo
Love
Michiko

I'm sure that your Mom doesn't really mind the fact that you only allow her a tiny edge of the bed....by now she knows who's in charge of that bed! It's a good thing I can't get up on my parents bed anymore because of my arthritis because I'd FOR SURE be pushing both my parents to the edges! Love your crown Katie...VERY elegant.

Kitty Hugs, Sammy

Kjelle Bus said...

Can you imagine that my mom-person calls me a bedhog too ?!
XOXO

Pattyskypants said...

Katie, you are lucky! Mai mom doesn't get up no matter what I do! She just grumbles and ignores me.

Eileen said...

We likes to pin the mom down. Saku by her feet, Sasha by her side and Sami on her chest.

That's a little hard to do when you is an only cat...so great work!

Sasha, Sami, & Saku

PeeEss: we finds the whiskers in the face works real well!

We have bed hogs here, too. It gets very crowded! But it is worth it! ~xo~

Kitties Blue said...

You are beauty personified. Did you have your tiara on when you horked all over the rug? MOL. Sorry we have been missing for such a long, long time. The humans and their continual traveling and Mauricio hogging the computer for Cat Scouts has put us quite far behind visiting and commenting. We are going to try to catch up a little tonight. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
