Best Seat in the House




Kitties!

Rupert here.
Every night when Mommy goes to bed it is my Catly Duty to sit on her chesticles, pinning her down to the mattress.  She whines that it hurts her back but I'm pretty sure she's fibbing,* because she lets me do it every.  single.  evening.

So, you think I'd be thrilled to have the Best Seat in the House, but "best" implies there are  other seats...which means I have to share Mommy. 
Look!

Interlopers!

Johnny and Miss Salem.

Thus my displeased expression in the previous photo.


However... 
there are benefits for my benevolence and not getting all screechy and territorial and paw-slappy though.  Like chin rubs.

And whiskerhole massage!

And most enjoyable of all, scruff scritchies.
All of which (you may note) the others are not receiving!**

Life is Good.


Happy Monday!

XX  Rupert  XX


*I'm not. He's like a lead weight on my spine.-ed

**that HE can see.  As soon as he falls asleep and rolls off the other two move in!

  2. We each have our favrit night spots on or around TBT. I (Ayla like ta sit on his back or side and make bisquits on the mattress while I am unmoving ON him. Drives him crazy. Iza likes to get unner the covers and lay on his privates. Marley is easiest. He gets unner the covrs and sleeps an inch away.

  3. It's nice to share, even if it's your brofur and sisfur. You win in the long run!

    If Johnny really wanted to be on mommy's chest I'm sure it would be a tussle and throwing Miss Salem in there could create a handful!!

  4. I know you don't like sharing, but if your mommy is going to complain about just YOUR weight n her, invite Johnson and Salem to join you on her chesticles one night and she can see what the word 'heavy' really means!
    Just the one night of course.. sharing has limits after all!

  5. Oddly enough, all of us share the humans on the bed, with no complaints. When Sparkle was here, I think she and Binga complained a little.

  7. Yes, Pekka is the chest-sitter here: the rest of us occupy the top of the bed except Sir Stink-A-Lot who creeps UNDER the cover. It is not nice down there after a few hours.

  8. Rupert, You look just like a LION. Seriously.

    How 'bout that MadBum, eh?

  9. I only have to share my momma wif da dog in da bed.

  10. Rupert, the first look says it all.

    Do you give your Mommy a brisk massage before settling in? We do. She has the pin holes on her chesticles to prove it.
    MOL!

  11. Oh Rupert what a lucky kitty cat. I spend most of the night on the bed as well. :)

  12. I'm with you on the bed thing. Tom tells me to push them off (not that HE does, lol) but I can't, therefore I'm usually found at an angle in a wedge shape unable to move. lol
    Polly is to the left of the black box, down a bit from the gate. You're not the only one that couldn't find her.

    The scritches are the best!

  15. Rupert, you really got PRIME spot + best service
    What I see Johnny boy just want to make sure mommy will not drop to the floor
    And My Miss Salem, I guess you love special spot ...to dream about me :) I love sock smell too xox

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ha ha- "Chesticles"! Haven't heard that one yet. My dad's lap is probably my all time favorite spot. Happy week to you, Rupert.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh My Gosh! Mum says that you're the only other purrson that she's ever heard use the term 'chesticles'!!
    **high five**

    I sleep on top of Mum too, but I have no competition so it's great. Um, she needs to read about the chin scritches and scruff scratches though. . . .

    ReplyDelete
  18. Best spot in the bed! Pierre likes to sit there, too, and he agrees that chesticle perches rule.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yep, you got the happy going on pretty good!

    ReplyDelete
  20. We're glad it's just the two of us...it's difficult enough to share our human. Can't imagine with so many other kitties in the mix. LOL.

  21. What wonderful whiskers Rupert and we love the last picture after your scruff scritches as you look as though all's well with the world.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  22. Rupert, I think you've got it made!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wow, there is a lot of competition for the best spots!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yep, most definitely the best seat in the house!

    ReplyDelete
  25. THAT IS "HANDS DOWN" BEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE.
    hUGS MADI YOUR BFFF

    ReplyDelete
  26. Rupert, you sure got the very best seat! Rubs and scritchies...ah you looks so happy :-)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Awww... like any good kitty Mommy, no matter how uncomfortable a position we get into, the important rule is: DON'T DISTURB THE CAT!
    I hope the weather cools down so you can enjoy all the cuddling!
    xxoo

  28. Momma says that Abby used to sleep all night on top of her like that Rupert. She misses that and would give anything to be able to do that again.

  29. He's not heavy, he's my brother, I mean your Rupert. The million $ question is: what is the largest # on the bed at the same time?

    ReplyDelete
  30. dood...scruff scritches iz de best isnt they !!! pea...ezz...ya mite wanna keepz an eye on johnny & salem...just sayin.....

    ♥♥

  31. That is definitely prime position Rupert. I like to lie on my mum's tummy, but if she is on her side I go right to the bottom edge of the bed and sulk until she turns over.

    ReplyDelete
  32. You're such a lucky kitty Rupert ! You've got the best spot ! Purrs

    ReplyDelete
  33. Rupert, you certainly got the best seat in the house! Hope the others don't figure it out!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh Rupert! Your Mama's bed looks a lot like LP's every night... it looks like a regular parking lot! :p We bet the others keep a close eye on your "privileged position" . . .

    the critters in the cottage xo

  35. Those interlopers look quite reminiscent of barnacles on a ship!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I don't know much about women and I sure don't want to know what chesticles are.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Rupert, I guess your mommy can excuse your magical ability to triple your weight on her!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Mom bean says she'd be okay with a brief chesticle visit if it happened early in the evening, but with Saku it happens more frequently at 4 a.m. Don't that fool you...she lubs it!

  39. Rupert, you really have it made in the shade, and you are so sweet and adorable. Our post for tomorrow is much like this one. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  40. You look like you’re really enjoying it, Rupert. I kinda like the scruff scritchies but only on my terms.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Rupert the happies on your face show us how wonderful it is :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Wow, Rupert! Great job of pinning down the mom for those all important scritches! Your evening routine looks so relaxing. Purrs...

    ReplyDelete
  43. Truffles likes to sleep on my chest too and it is pretty rough on the back :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. You've definitely got the best seat in the house! Pinning your mom down is a great strategy - gives her no other option but to give you the scritches and rubs you deserve!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Huh, oh! Sweet Rupert we read a secret at the end of this post. You better not fall asleep and roll off because it seems when you do they take over your best seat in the house. We loooooved the pictures of all of your enjoyment...so cute and relaxing. Hugs and nose kisses

    ReplyDelete
  46. You know, your sleeping situation is starting to look suspiciously like my own... ten cats and counting!

    Rupert's a lovely boy!

Oh Boy...this is gonna be GREAT!
