Dilemmas



Kitties!

Scouty here.
I'm experiencing my Annual Cold Weather Quandry: where to sleep at night.

All summer long I snooze away the dark hours in glorious, uninterrupted solitude on the Catio, but with the advent of chilly weather I have to relocate indoors...an area inhabited by the Lumbering Apes, and their bothersome grabby hands.  

One of my favorite spots is on Mommy's pillow, however, she insists on using it too.  Such a bother.  Daddy's bed is out, even though my beloved Tiny Johnson sleeps there--Daddy flails wildly in his sleep and again, it's bothersome.  

The cat tree by the back door is nice, but the light switch is there and the peeps, with their paltry night vision, insist on using when they go out onto the Catio.  This bothers me and I have to leave.

I generally end up sprawled out dead to the world and snoring cautiously resting on the sofa, where Mommy studiously avoids looking at me when she gets home from work*.  It's tough, I tell you, getting in my 22 hours a day!

Will it be summer again soon?


Happy Friday!

*At least until he gets up and requests a piece of chicken jerky--he sure wants attention then!

  2. Yes, Scouty, this is indeed serious! Where to sleep ? We generally have our own spots and I am the brave one who stays near Äiti's flaying feet.
    And your eyes, well, they are just so very handsome. And that's a mancat to mancat compliment.

  3. Scouty - to quote a little orphan, "it's a hard knock life." I hope you survive!

  4. My gosh, you DO have a dilemma on your paws. Don't know what to tell you. You sure you can't get control of that pillow?

  5. The problems us kittehz face is never-ending, I tell you. Maybe you should just convince your peeps to put a heater on the catio. We've talked our peeps into an outdoor heater. MOL!

  7. Here is an idea: Why don't you put those apes in a cage for say 22 hours a day, so you won't be bothered by them so much!
    Have a nice snooze cutie!

  9. That's pretty serious, Scouty. We hope that winter is short so you can return to your regularly scheduled uninterrupted snoozing.

  10. Humans don't realise all the work we do for them and obviously it makes us feel very tired and as we try to gather a few moments to close our eyes they start to talk to us and tell us all about "their day"!!

  16. Just demand that your humans install more cozy places for you to sleep that meet with your approval!

  17. Mind you, if your Mom slept on the couch...problem solved :)

  18. I can see you have big problems there Scouty. I sleep on top of my mum and that stops her moving around. Of course that could be too dangerous a choice for you.

  19. That's a tough one Scouty. We wish you the best during the chilly nights.

  20. Sounds like it's hard to find a warm yet quiet place to sleep. Hang in there. Not so soon, but there will be summer coming for you :-)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Well, you HAVE to sleep somewhere where you can wake an ape up for nighttime feeding.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh Scouty, we sure hope you find somewhere to sleep besides that flailing arms Dad. There must be somewhere warm to curl up. We all get in the bed with the Mom and squash her. You all have a good evening.

  24. Scouty! You are so handsome! Us lady cats are going ga ga over here. We hope your good-looking self finds a suitable sleeping spot soon. We can sympathize with your situation. We have the same problem!

  25. Scouty, how 'bout UTB? At least for part of the time. Make sure you get right in the middle. No grabby hands can bother you there.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow, we had no idea! No more complaining about lack of sleepy spaces for us! Purrs....

    ReplyDelete
  27. Poor Scouty! Perhaps the mom bean should give up her pillow for you and sleep on the couch instead, MOL

  30. What a conundrum you have. Six of us just pile in the humans' bed and let them work around us. Astrid stays downstair by herself, and Giulietta usually sleeps on the bench in the bathroom. Misty May has dips on Mom's pillow. She could care less if Mom also wants to use it. Hope you find your purrfect winter snoozing spot.
