Last Night.

Kitties, I think my mom is getting anxious to find a way to convince me I need to sleep on the other pillow.  Not:

1.  With my waist lying across her neck.

2.  Not with my head and face jammed into her ear.

3.  Not with my shoulder and side covering half of her face, enveloping her nostrils.

4.  Not holding her down from aching shoulder joint to fingertips.

5.  Not smack in the middle of her chest.  I am a trifle heavy.  Her heart needs room to beat she says.

6.  Not on top of her head behind the pillow.

7.  Press my headie into her cheek and throw both arms heavily across her throat.  And leave them .

 Her Other Wishes Are as Follows:

1.  Stop washing her forehead at varying times of the night.

2.  Stop forcing her to wear a cap used to cover heads under motorcycle helmets.

3.  Stop washing her hair in the night if it escapes that cap.  That's why she wears it.  To keep me out.

4.  Stop jumping on her stomach in the night.

What IS OK:

Putting my warm soft paw in the outside of her ear.  I tuck my claws up and in as tightly as they can go.  And, lastly, Putting my paw on her face and going to sleep with it there.

I wouldn't hurt  mommy for anything.

If you don't let your mom get enough sleep, she might get all foggy and forget to feed you! You don't want that.

Brian said...

That's a lot of do not dos sweet Katie...don't forget your Mom loves you toO!

Sleeping humans and cats.. not always a good match. Mom says we kill her sleep most nights.

Annie Bear said...

Katie, you are a one-of-a-kind, special girl. My guess is you most likely won’t be abiding by this list but good try, Mom!

Dearest Katie Isabella,
Oh, I know about those washings around 3:00 AM - Barty loves to lick my forehead clean! Don't know what he thinks is on it but he is dead serious...
Or he switches from sleeping over my head on the bottom pillow, cradling my head sweetly with soft paws, to sliding down beneath the down duvet to sleep next to me. He thinks he is a cat-human, copying the exact same position as his Mami...
Don't we love them all!
Anyone who's never been tenderly loved by a kitty, does not know what heaven on earth feels like.
Hugs,
Mariette

PS Barty also knows how to tangle Mami's long hair by teasing it through the night, trying to avoid her falling asleep... Brushing it out in the morning is sometimes rough! But he so loves her 'furs'...

By the way, Katie Isabella's blog is the only blog I can actually post a comment in while in Safari... ALL others I have to open up anew in Google Chrome... WHY is that Katie?!

Katie Isabella said...

That IS strange! I always use Safari of course as mommy is all MAC. But Blogspot won't let mommy and me comment on Word Press paid blogs unless she uses her ancient WP free blog credentials.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Yep, all MAC here too but since a couple of months Blogger won't let me comment in Safari.
The very same with Word Press and some blogs I've given up. So aggravating and time consuming... WHY do they complicate things for other beings?! Life is already way too short for getting all the t's crossed and i's dotted...

meowmeowmans said...

You sure do love Mommy, and she loves you right back, Katie.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

I think your Mommy is insufficiently grateful for your loves and affections. *I* sleep on the bed at a respectful distance, and if the Human reaches out to pet me, I inch discreetly away. Sometimes I purr loudly enough for her to hear though. I think your Mommy prefers your sleeping style to mine. Remind her of that. XOXOXO

Pam and Teddy said...

Oh we know you wouldn't hurt your Mommy for anything in the world AND she feels the same about you too Katie! It's lovely that you want to be with her CLOSE and TIGHT at night....but humans do need to breathe freely and paws/faces/bodies of their beloved kitties draped/inserted/applied to their breathing apparatus makes that tough. Perhaps a compromise can be agreed to????

Hugs, Teddy

Summer at sparklecat.com said...

I know your human worships you, Katie... but BOY, does she have a lot of commands!

Kea said...

Yeah, ditto Summer! How on earth are you supposed to sleep properly with those kinds of "orders," Katie?!

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

KI, when will hunans learn that the pillows belong to us? They should just move to the couch. P.S. Lexy's bed is the MyLap Pet Bed. Here is a link to their site: https://www.mylappetbed.pet/ Love you!

My mummy would love it if I did all those things. I do lick her hair sometimes, but not in bed but when she's on the sofa watching TV. I like to sleep nestled against her legs at night.

Purrs xx

imbrite2 said...

You do have a great selection of positions for your mom to choose from, KI. We do understand why there are some no-no’s. Don’t take it personally. For whatever reason, moms apparently need to sleep in the night. Ugh. That can cramp an affectionate kitty’s style. #humansamiright

Love and licks,
Cupcake

Terri said...

Has your mom tried a heated pet bed for you? Remove the extra pillow and replace heated bed by her pillow.

BeadedTail said...

Katie, apparently she doesn't care about your comfort at night - only hers. We totally don't understand the demands but for some reason are mommy does. Moms are weird.

Random Felines said...

you would be proud Katie - Goldfish slept on the bed last night RIGHT UP against mom forcing mom to sleep in a seriously weird position :)

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

that is a very long list of don'ts! Your mommy should realise what an honour it is that you bestow on her every night.

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

So many don'ts here but she loves you regardless

CATachresis said...

Well somekitty has to check that mom's not dead!! I think you do a brilliant job at keeping her alive. After all who would feed you?!!

Sasha + Saku said...

What great ideas Katie! After some lubbings we tend to curl up beside our mom bean or at her feet. We especially think she'd like a bath in the middle of the night, or NOT! MOL.

John Bellen said...

Good Heavens, what a lot of demands your mum is making. I think she better try persuading you to do just one at a time...

SailorEdgar said...

Those look like sensible rules, Katie.
