MUCH betters in TN.

Kitties, momma was mean to me.  She was so very sleepy all day so when she hit the bed she took care to lie near the edge the way she used to.  Of late, she was in a crescent position and left me a clear space at her waist so I could nestle in.  That was her choice.  BUT:  That cause her discomfort as it allowed me to do my vast expansion all over the bed whenever she moved.

Last night, she laid at the near edge of the bed, her side, covered up to her shoulders and fell asleep instantly.

I soon announced the arrival of Donkey (only!) and while she spoke to me, she went back to sleep.  I wound up at her knees on the other side of the bed! She slept on.  Without me.   She even got to turn over a few times without really disturbing me settled on the blanket at knee level.  She went to bed at 9:30 so she did well!

This morning I asked her to get up at 6 by lying on half of her pillow.  She said my breath was stale!  Can you believe THAT!?  But she slumbered on regardless.  Half an hour later I asked her to get up again and she moved back, revealing a warm space at her waist so I fell straight down and glued myself to her.  I didn't stay long though.  I was starved.

That is Chapter Two of the continuing saga "Sleepless in TN".

THIS is what's coming next..in case you're wondering.

Katie, you do keep your Mom busy at night. About four of us keep our Person busy at night too. We take her foot place on the bed so she has no where to put her feets. So she has to get up and move us.
Hope you two have a wonderful day.

There are definitely elements of yer story that resonate here!

Beth said...

Oh Miss Katie, mom has to have a good nights sleep once in awhile. How else could she take such great care of you. xx

This all sounds like at my house! Maggie sleeps on me, but Chloe Jo is up and down all night. Grizelda comes to say goodnight, but then prowls. ~xo~

Katie, the lady sympathizes with your mom. She knows what it means to be sleepless due to a kitty.

That picture of you that looks like a record cover is so cute! Can't wait to see what that's about.

Purrs,
Annie

Sounds like you had a "Goodnight's sleep", Katie.

MOWZERS, Katie. Are you gonna serenade her???

ANGEL ABBY said...

Katie it does sound like you and your Mom got a good night's sleep!!!

Mary said...

Sleep is such a healthy, refreshing thing Katie! You are such a good girl. Hugs to you and your Mom! xx

BeadedTail said...

Even though it doesn't sound like it, we bet your mom wouldn't trade her sleepless nights with you for anything Katie!

Remember how it feels to get your beauty sleeps interrupted? That's how your Mommy feels except lots more tired. You mean the world to her. So does a good night's sleep too. MOL!

Humans do need a good night sleep now and then :)

My human sleeps so soundly that even Binga can't do much to wake her! But once she begins to stir, Binga puts her wet nose on her to make sure she does not fall back asleep! Sometimes, actually, that does not work!

Brian said...

Just remember, Mom loves you sweet Katie!

Flynn said...

You have to let the mums get a good nights sleep now and again Katie, or they get cranky.

LP said...

It looks as though you are going to serenade your Mama Katie! How sweet of you!
(This is sarcasm). Heehee :p

You sure keep your mom on her toes, Katie. Are you going to sing the blues because you didn't get the best spot on the bed last night?

Photo Cache said...

it's really nice that your human is getting that much needed sleep and rest.

but katie listen to me, your fellow tuxie Emma, the way to surely wake your mom up and get her shooting straight out of bed is a little teeny tiny poke in her nostril with a little claw. that always solves my problem of mom not waking up when I wants my treat at 5 am.

LP..that is EXACTLY what it means!

Katie, if it makes you feel any better, my mom always tells me I have FISH BREATH, even when I haven't had any fish!

The Island Cats said...

Katie, the sleeping adventure at your house continues.

For kitty bad breath I recommend Hissterine.

Sweet Purrfections said...

What's a kitty to do about sleeping moms?

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

I think you should draw us some diagrams, Katie.

Every night is an adventure with you and you Mom in that bed isn't it?! "Peaceful coexistence" is the name of the game for you two I think....sometimes it works and sometimes not...but at least you're together!!

Holiday Hugs, Sammy

SailorEdgar said...

Well, Katie, if you keep your Mom awake at night, then she will be tired, and whose fault is that? Hmmm? Hint...not your Mom's! :-)

Mariodacat said...

Katie - sweet Katie - you sure do keep mom guessing and keep her on her toes. That's good cuz humans tend to get brain fog and you don't want that to happen. You will have to change strategies now sweetie - cuddle up to her back side so she's trapped! he he

meowmeowmans said...

We agree with Spitty! We need diagrams and illustrations, sweet Katie! :)
