Sleep? What's That?

Kitties! She's moaning and complaining again.

First, she says how sweet it is when I climb up and walk to her chest, (and after pulverizing that), to her head, whereupon I settle on her pillow next to her head with my face pointed comfortably under her neck area-while she's on her back.  I burrow in, start purring and what's the problem here mom?  I thought you said how warm and sweet?  Right? Purring, heartbeat..what more do you want?

Oh, she says that's not the issue.  The issue is me waking up many times in the night and having a good bath. Or a least washing my paws and my face.  She said the whiskers right in her face still, constantly going across her face tickles so much she has to scratch her face which in turn disturbs ME.  After we get THAT settled, I will occasionally wake and commence to washing her face.  She really REALLY doesn't want me to wash her face.  She said that first of all, there is moisturizer on it and she doesn't want me ingesting that. Next she complains that I am flaying the skin off her forehead and that I took a few swipes at cleaning her eyelids.

Kitties...what a lady cat to do?

The Whiskeratti said...

Yeah, humans are whiny, aren't we? My cat before Toby and Leia, Mina, was big on eye lid licking. That sandpiper tongue!

I say keep doing what you're doing, she secretly likes it!

You are such a sweetie. I have to agree with your mom on this one because you don't want to ingest the cream. XO

Katie, you just keep doing what you’re doing. She would miss it if you didn’t. Trust us, we know.

Dearest Katie Isabella,
Haha, our Barty who sleeps in my neck or on my head, does the very same.
When giving me acupuncture does not work well, he starts washing himself several times...
If I get up and go to the bathroom, he tries to sneak in under the down duvet and he will scratch my butt!
Yep, got the scars to prove it... Oh Lord, we never will get used to their routines and still we love them to death.
But you might have to start wearing eye patches to protect your eyelids...
Big hugs,
Mariette

Humans are never satisfied! That's why I sleep on the opposite end of the bed from my human. I don't want her complaining that she doesn't get enough rest!

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

You are just trying to be helpful making sure your mum is licketty spit clean and she doesn't appreciate all the work you put into it!

Pam and Teddy said...

Humans are so great at complaining - and when we're doing our bestest to be companionable companions up to and including actually BATHING them - and they don't appreciate it - well - it's totally demoralizing isn't it!

Hugs, Teddy

Well, Miss Katie, if she don't want to be clean, she will have to stink all day and I guarantee that will cause a few raised eyebrows..... and twitchy noses!!! MOL ❤️❤️❤️

Tamago said...

Awww you are really warm and sweet, Katie san. I don't understand why she is complaining, hahaha. But I do understand she doesn't want you to wash her face because of moisturizer. She is very thoughtful :-)

Katie, you make us laff...the mom bean not so much. She says she too would not appawciate a face washing in the middle of the night. Beans, can't live with them, can't live without them!

The PO'M kept licking me yesterday too, and man oh man, that tongue is rough! Wish I knew what to tell you, Katie...humans are weird.

You mean well but it isn't what she wants at that time

Timmy Tomcat said...

Hoomans, you cant please them Katie. Tell Mom she could have Buddy Budd instead who wants a snack at 1, 3, 4 and 6 am.

Some humans are never satisfied, Katie...

Mom also hates when I lick off all her moisturizer. Whenever she wants kisses, it's a different story. But when I smell some delicious lotion on her, and go for it, she's all, "Get off me, weirdo." Moms can be hard to read... #humansamiright

Love and licks,
Cupcake

Humans are kind of clueless, Katie. Carry on, sweet girl. You're doing great!

Well, first of all, that's kind of nervey! I mean, humans should be grateful. I used to have that same problem, but I solved it by demanding my own pillow right next to mommmy's. I still crawl on top of her early in the morning and will give her a little lick, but my midnight baths are no longer disturbed.
