Routine

Kitties! I think some kitty mentioned that it would be nice to comment upon our bedtime routines before the end of the month.

I think everyone knows mine but just in case, I will mention it here. Long about bedtime I pace and/or sit and stare alternatively till she goes on in to bed.  I give her but the barest few seconds to get under the covers before I am up and on the bottom of the bed and stomping up to her chesticles where I plop even if she's not ready yet.  That's tough beans for her.

After some petting and talking and scritchies while perched up there on her chesticles...the light goes off.  I stay an additional few minutes and then, jump down.  She falls asleep quickly but I come first~ meaning I always always bring in my toys, my Donkey first.  Each one's arrival is announced loudly.  I expect a thank you, so she wakes and murmurs one with each of my announcements.

If you look at last night's babies I brought in; Donkey is the closest to the bed, floppy Mousie is the second and Fat Pink Mousie is the third.

Last night's family gathering.


Those throw rugs are there for me to rest on, thereby keeping some black furs off the carpet but they are also there for horking purposes as those are the places I target the most often.

Mom has them flung all over the house now after the carpet got cleaned- in a close- to- futile attempt to keep the carpet clean...silly mom.

So I sleep pressed up against the side of her face for a long time..all warming her ear and face with furs and purring and then, I move up to the back of her head  on our pillow.

The morning wake up for her is me all the way..just an arms length away from her face.  I extend my arms and put a paw on each one of her eyes,  as soft as a Pussy Willow resting on her eyes. Purring.  She smiles and says good morning.  Our day starts.

That's our day start and end.  XXX

I love how you bring your toys to the bedroom, Katie. Cammie does that now and then, talking all the while, like you. But she doesn't do it every night. (Thank goodness...)

That is quite a routine, Katie!

The toy parade is the best.

You sure are a sweetie, Katie. We would never think of doing any of that. Well, except for the yak part. Our mom says all would be right with the world if carpet came in the color yak.

You have the sweetest routine, Katie san! Your mom is so lucky to have all the furry purry love and cute gift of toys. And waking up smiling is the best way to start the day :-)

katie; my stars but your routine is FABulous and I daresay your mom owes you a WORLD of gratitude not only for keeping her safe and sound but offering her companionship and free use of your toys; so when do we leave for Milan ~~ hugs from dai$y =^..*= ♥♥

Routine is important and oh so good

LOL, I love your family gathering. We do that sometimes, too. Our evening routine isn't too exciting, but we all like to wake up our assistant at 3 am for breakfast.

Katie, it was enjoyable to read about your bedtime rituals. I love that you include your “family.” :) You are such a sweet girl!

Mostly only I here bring special things to TBT in bed. And usually only softy-mouse. I DO merf loudly about it though... Especially right at dawn. I'm sure he likes that best. ~ AYLA

Dearest Katie Isabella,
You seem to be a very warm and loving cat-girl!
Love the way you also bring your toys to bed with you; keeping them warm and safe.
Your morning routine is the sweetest; love that!
Hugs,
Mariette

I really should not have allowed the Human to read this, Darling. She's just GLARING at me now. Evidently I am not a very satisfactory night-time companion, MOL! XOXOXO

It's very nice of you to bring your family to your mom every night. We sleep on our mommy and any slightest movement expect treats from the stash in the nightstand. We have her trained well.

We love the routine you and Mommy have, Katie.

I LOVE a predictable start and end to a day, KI. Every day. Your mom must feel very secure in knowing exactly what will play out each night. I also like that there is no teeth brushing in your bedtime routine. Sadly, there is in mine....

Love and licks,
Cupcake

You are such a devoted Mommy's girl, sweet Katie! I loved reading this and seeing the trail of presents leading up to the bed. My Angel Tommie used to bring his collection of catnip mice up to the bedroom at night, announcing their arrival. I miss him.

I try to do a similar routine as I love my mommy very much too. But the extents you go go have me beat. You are a devoted kitty to the max and you are an expert at showing it to your mom! She must be ecstatic knowing how much you love her and how much you show it.

She is a very lucky mom, that is for certain! My mommy feels very lucky to have me too! Luvz, Patzy
