ManCat Monday with Mommy

Kitties!

Tiny Johnson here, and I have a fun story to tell.

The other night, Mommy was almost asleep.  Me and CC and Konakitty and Grayce and Rupert were all in bed with her, and I had shotgun by her pillow.  The bed was full of purring happy sleepy kitties, and one pinned-in Mommy, who was getting hot.  And thirsty.

A Re-enactment.

Mommy decided she needed a sip of water, so she slithered up and out the middle of the bed and toddled towards the kitchen.

Suddenly, the peaceful night was rent by terrible growls and howls!

The toddling sped up and a light went on--and Mommy saw Sylvester, with a bottlebrush tail and the rest of him poufed out to twice his size.  Truly, she never imagined he could make his tail that HUGE.  Apparently Henry (our Outdoor Boy) was staring in through the front windows and Sylvester took exception to this.

Mommy soothed Mister Angry Tux and coaxed him into his fleecy box bed on the coffee table, turned off the light, and finally got that drink of water.  Quenched, she came back to bed, and patted all around on the covers to make sure she didn't squish anycat when she reinserted herself back into her designated six-inch wide slot.
The Angry Party
Which had been pre-empted by ME!  I was in the warm spot with my head on the pillow.
ha ha ha ha!

Another re-enactment.
Well.  Mommy was undeterred, she got into bed and pulled the covers over me!  She snuggled me into her chest and told me that I was so nice to cuddle; that I hadn't done this since I was a wee kitten tot.

Me and Mommy in her fancy jammies.
Kitties, I caved.  I purred like a freight train and we fell asleep.

Mommy - 1
Me - 1

I say we both won that round.


Happy Monday!

  1. Brulee doesn't really like to be held yet, but she is a real snuggle bunny when Mom Paula goes to bed at night.

  2. We think you both won that too , Mr Teeny Tiny Johnson dude.
    We are taking careful notes on your bed positioning - we often have 5 on the bed but our distribution is less random than yours and we think Äiti gets more room than is perhaps necessary. However she does kick about a lot in bed so we are arranged for safety!

  3. Aww, I bet you made a great little spoon, Johnny.

    I LOL'd at your mom having a 6" section of bed. That's how it is for me too- Scarlett on one side, Melly on the other.

  4. An excellent story with a happy ending!

  5. More proof kitties are not subordinate to hoomans, if that was needed. Carl often takes the mom's place, before him it was Lumpy and Toby who battled over spots with her. What's with those mancats? If your mom lost, Tiny, would she have used some of those heated kitty boxes?

  6. Great win-win for all of you! Mommy included. We do that too, but pin TBT down better. He has to carefully crawl out of bed to go pee at night like crawling out of a sleeping bag. And watchin him crawl back IN unner the blankies is an exercise in gymnastics.

    But ya know, he really surprised us one night. He just kicked up the blankies til we all got off! He has real dominance moments. Few and far between, thankfully.

  8. Boy, six cat's in bed, no wonder your Mom was hot! Our Mom gets hot with us two cats, the slobbery woofy and Dad. Guess we should just shoo Dad to the couch!!!!!! MOL

  9. Johnny, My Human would like to work out a trade: You for me and a kitty to be named later that she doesn't have yet. Whaddya say?

    P.S. How *dare* Henry look in the window! What could he have been thinking??? Ha ha ha @ Sylvester!

  10. How nice that you two cuddled all night...that makes us humans VERY happy!!! I laughed so hard because I also do the "slither" ALL THE TIME, so I know exactly what your mum was talking about :-)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Sometimes my human actually SHOVES us kitties out of the way when she gets up! And usually I sleep on a pillow at the foot of the bed... but she has been known to KICK IT OFF THE BED in her sleep! She is terrible. I think we kitties need our own king-sized bed.

  12. Tiny...erm. You just aren't that tiny. I hate to say it.....

  13. Hey lover boy....you're so handsome no wonder your mommy loves cuddling you. Yeah...that's how it should be. Just 6" of space for mom. purrr....meow!

  15. Mr. Sylvester I absolutely feel for you ! I just run around the house like nut ! I try to protect my house from the kitty on the roof !!! But mom said it was no kitties on the roof just the sound of air con just turned on. So now she turned it off, so now I calm down ; )

    Mr. Johnny, my mom swoon !!!! she said you so cute and fluffy !!!but I wonder how heavy you are ? You look bigger than me ( I'm 6.4 kg. )

  19. All those kitties snuggling on the bed - sleeping in heavenly peace. We just make visits for scritches during the night, checking the humans, and when they wake up, we leave. Not sleeping in heavenly peace.

  20. MOL, we did that to Mommy while the Daddy was away. We have been regulated to the garage now that he is back. Mainly because Scylla takes up so MUCH ROOM. That looks like a very comfy spot Tiny I thinks I will come cuddle with you, it is cold here. ~Arty Mouse

  21. Hahaha LOL! Love the reenactments! That was a very fun story.

    You kitties have a super week!

  22. We're super-impressed with your reenactment! And you're such a smoochable, cuddly mancat, Johnny, that our mom says it would be bliss to spoon with you. She used to love to spoon with Chumley.

    BTW, you give your mom 6 inches in the bed? She's so tiny we're not sure she needs even that much.

    ReplyDelete
  23. It really is ridiculous the way humans consider that the bed belongs to THEM. Your Mommy is fortunate that you let her sleep there at all. Though I bet if he wasn't in the bed it would not be as appealing to you all.

    ReplyDelete
  24. You allow your mom 6ins????? Profligate. She needs cutting down to size :)

  25. We love the snuggle picture and those cute paws we see!

  27. We both keep pushing our mum over to one side and then we stretch out
    across the bed. Ha! Ha!

  28. He's so smooshable! I just want to hug him! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow! All those cats on the bed with no hissy fits! Me would never stand for that, me wants to be the ONLY cuddler with my Mommy.
    BTW yous is a very cute Man Cat!

  30. We visits our human in the night, but she thrashes around too much to sleep with. She really likes to snorgle bellies...Tiny, better watch out!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thank you for the re-enactment! That brings everything to life. It must be a mom thing to slither & toddle because ours does that too!
    But TIny, how smart you were to see that warm spot opportunity & get tere first! And to cuddle like that & make mommy so happy, that is tops!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Only the best storytellers use the word "toddle.". Enjoyed the reanactments too.

    ReplyDelete
  33. hehe....we sleep like that too - pin the mom to the bed. Tommy ended up under the covers last night but escaped pretty quick. Glad you got some cuddles and we hope Sylvester and Henry aren't too traumatized by their late night meeting.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Johnny, you are so handsome!

    Honestly, every time I wonder if four cats is too much, I think of you guys and feel reassured! Hahaha!

    Love Mommy's jammies. She has an awesome wardrobe.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Well, what an interesting evening!!! You leave your Mom 6
    inches? We try to give ours less than that!

    The only one of us that snuggles much with Meowm is Orion. He is more than happy to lay on Meowms lap and snuggle with her at bedtime. He doesn't stay there all night, but he will at least snuggle with her for awhile!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Maybe Henry is thinking about coming inside and being a spoiled Lounge cat? Zippy won't sleep on da bed wif da rest of us and our heater, er, mom but she likes to slip in der when we get up to get our midnite snack. Sometimes we don't know she's der 'cuz she crawls over mom and unner da covers.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Those are quite some tummy furs! Wow! Very nice. Of course, you snuggled him in!

    Do they neighbors mind if you get him neutered and pay for it? Or, maybe you could just do it and see if they even notice! Maybe the vet could put implant testicles in place, so no one needs to know!

  38. Johnny I just knew you were a Mama's boy...and that is OK!! Any boy who loves his mama that much makes a fine and loyal friend.
    Hugs madi

  39. Awwwwwwww, sweet, handsome, Johnny who wouldn't want to cuddle you? You look so much like our Snookums and she is a lovey dovey cuddler. You two would make a lovely pair. All these pictures are adorable. Hugs and nose kisses

  41. I love snuggling with Mommy sometimes too. But I can only do that when Daddy's away. He's just jealous of my manliness, I bet. Bah.

  42. WE do the same thing to our Mommy at night. We surround her and it is all she can do to get out of the bed. Luckily if she gets up, we all get up with her to see if there is a snack in the making, so is able to back in the bed if she is fast. Great pictures of all of you. Take care and have a great day.

    ReplyDelete
  43. You are so lucky! My kitties won't share the bed with each other. They have on occasion, but it was tense.. I'd love to have a bed full of furry sweeties!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I could have used that photo at the top for my "Sleeping with Cats" post!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Aw...Johnny you are a cuddler at heart! :)

    LP does , " the slither" too every single night when she gets out of bed to use the bathroom (her bladder is the size of a cat kibble)...she sucks at the slither though 'cause she always disturbs everyone! Geesh....

  46. I sleep at Mom's feet and she tries not to disturb me as she gets up to go to the little room and then she's careful getting back in bed...mol We cats rule....I wonder if Henry will be snuggling with you all some day.

  47. Oh my, those introoders that go bump in the night can cause such a fright!

  50. Purrfect bedtime story since it´s time to go to bed if you live in Sweden :)
    Glad it was 1 to you and 1 to your mom :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Do you realize that almost half of you guys were on your momma's bed with her? We know she loved that!

    ReplyDelete
  52. We're impressed your mom was able to wiggle out of bed with all of you on it like that! And Johnny...you're right...we think you and your mom both won big time with all the snuggling that went on!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oh, Tiny you are one sweet-looking 'tiny' furball! We certainly like the photo of all of you on the bed - you even let your mom have a teensy bit of space!

  54. Very sweet! I sleep with my calico girl. We have a super strong bond, so we hate being away from each other. I can't sleep well without soft fur and purrs next to me =)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Definitely a win for all! Great re-enactment, too!

  56. Johnny the love muffin!
    We say that was a win win win.

  57. not enough of us kitties to pin mum in her bed. Plus she moves us out of the way if she wants to get up. She doesn't slither out like your mum.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Your mommy is so lucky to have so many kitties to cuddle with!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. That was definitely a win win situation. Mum likes it when I get under the quilt and snuggle against her.

  60. Sounds like a win-win to us! With it being so cold here lately, we have been doing lots of snuggling, and it does take some maneuvering to make sure that all of the fur people have a comfy spot and that Mom doesn't fall off the bed (we don't give her much room and she is usually balancing on the edge of the bed).

    ReplyDelete
  61. They all look comfortable on your bed. It's funny how they can take up all the bed and we're left with a very narrow space.

    ReplyDelete
  62. That was an incredible re-enactment! You all are great actors because we beleived you were all ready for bed! Our mommy is so jealous of having so many kitties around and we all love Johnny!

    ReplyDelete
  63. We love Johnny! Now our boys say they want MORE cats on the bed!

    ReplyDelete
  64. ohhhh, thank you fur the re-enacted pictures!! our mommer sez she hasta liff vicatiously through you, acause we can't sleep wif her onna counta her lergies.
