Always Complaining

Kitties, if it isn't one complaint it's another.

So last night as I laid there in a catloaf exactly and precisely  next to her head, my right foot accidentally slipped into her ear.  I kept my claws tightly up into my paw, and she admitted my footie was as soft as eiderdown.  So, the problem is what, Mom?

After a few minutes I withdrew it to tuck it back under me in my sleeping loaf position, but it slipped out and headed straight into the ear well again. No claws mind, and warm and soft.  The added benefit of my snoring into said fur stuffed ear sealed the deal I would have thought.  But no.  Where's the gratitude?  Where's the love?  She turned her HEAD!  My footie slid out and I was forced to tuck it back under me again.

I may have to reconsider my gifts.  She said she sleeps less soundly since I have joined her at night by roosting on her pillow smack up against her head.  And yet, she says it is so sweet to hear the purring right against her head. Make up your MIND, Woman.

That has to be very confusing for you sweet Katie.

What can you do with a contrary human, Katie? (That's rhetorical.)

You should hear OUR biped in the night, with Derry, as she does her best to push his porky body off her face. :-D

It's that old love-hate thing, Katie. HOOMINS!

Mine are BACK from their tripping around, thank Ceiling Cat. Now I can bug Mom by sitting in front of the computer again. Can you believe she turned it OFF while they were away? Selfish woman.

Humans can be so confusing. My human wishes I would go back to sleeping on her head when she takes a nap on the couch... but I bet she would complain if I did.

Humans can be so ungrateful. I can't fall asleep without Sammy purring on my head, yet it is not very comfortable with him on 75% of the pillows. XO

They just don't appreciate all we do, do they? We would have thought a soft footie in the ear would have been wonderful.

There's no pleasing some people! Eric used to sleep on my mum's head and she used to complain that he was suffocating her.

Annie Bear said...

Katie, you're so funny! Yes, the humans do love to complain. If the food dish would be kept full and the treats free flowing, I'd never complain!

Moms are so ungrateful. We'll never understand.

It's always something, isn't it? We've given up trying to figure moms out.

Mixed messages - that seems to be what humans are all about whereas WE are very CLEAR about our messages right Katie???

Hugs, Angel Sam

Humans are fickle that way, KI. And there you were keeping your sharp claw feet tucked in! Ugh. No gratitude. Around here, Mom calls me up on the bed and then when I cuddle up next to her, she's all, "Move over, weirdo!" GAH. What do they want from us??

Love and licks,
Cupcake

Humans are impossible to please. Last night M complains that I took up half of the wrong side of the bed again. Sheeesh, I was even kind enough to move when she rudely woke me up to go to hte bathroom and almost flipped me off the bed when she pulled the covers back. We just can't win no nmatter what we do or how sweet we are to them.

WE have never tried sleeping on, around or in #1's head. Maybe we should consider it?

Purrs,

Accidentally? Sure, Katie! ;-)

Oh, your mom should be happy she has you and not Chloe Jo. Chloe Jo is up and down all night. Every time, she has to bop my nose and then kiss me. Then she flops on my arm until I rub her belly. When she has enough, she sleeps on my head. Yeah...I know who the boss is...and it isn't me. Hugs!

Tamago said...

Katie san, come here and slip your foot in my ear any time! :-)

Well, from our experience, one can never make a human happy!

Us humans always need something to complain about

Humans are so difficult sometimes!

Purring is the bestest antidepressant ever. How could Mommy complain?
