Living with Carnivores

A vegetarian human's adventure with cats

Category: Sleep

Feline Architecture

These interesting structures were not created by the human. They are the work of a little red kitty who just loves to sleep under layers of fleece blankets.

Oh Please Don’t Bother Me!

Fireball was all cuddled up in one of the kitty beds. He looked so cute the human took pity on him and pulled the blanket up and over him. Once he decided the worst he was going to experience was a few clicks of the camera, he dozed back off to sleep.

Cat Bodies per Square Meter

Yes, it’s the trio modeling just how many fully-stretched-out cat bodies you can comfortably fit in a single kitty bed at one time.  Of course, when the human and her camera got too close, The Big C put on his scowly face.  Even the Smirky One looks a bit aggrieved.

Peekaboo

The human was walking back and forth between rooms this morning as she got organized for morning and put things away. For some reason, on one trip through, she happened to notice a patch of color in the kitty condo that currently sits between the stove room and the living room. Upon stopping and looking, she saw Pepe was inhabiting one of the kitty caves inside the condo and was watching the human with interest. A few pics later, the human was gone having resisted the urge to reach in and pet the Pepster.  He seemed content to be left in peace.

Meeting of the Minds

Corky was laying in one of the kitty beds when Caesar jumped up and decided to hop into an adjacent kitty bed. The Big Guy soon started mixing up a storm on the fleece fabric and singing a song.  Corky wasn’t sure if he was comfortable with how close Caesar was so they had a bit of a stare down.  Caesar ignored the Corkster and went on mixing and singing, so Corky settled down. Soon Caesar also curled up and they both fell asleep.

Hugs from the Gingerbread Bear

Fireball, like Pepe, enjoys getting up close and personal with the human when she’s laying around reading.  He stretches out on her chest and starts singing, which usually leads to a bit of drooling, and then mixing on shoulders and arms with those sweet little paws equipped with a full arsenal of scimitars (nails).  Still, how can you resist the love of a little red tiger cat?   Fortunately, or not, the visits are usually short lived. There always is something more interesting to see or to do than hanging out with the boring human when she’s trying to read.

Squashed

First Caesar was laying in one of the kitty beds next to the human, who was reading. Next, Fireball hopped in and curled up beside the Big Guy.  Not long after, the Merkitty joined the party. Since there wasn’t much room left, she flopped across both Tiger Boys.  No one seemed to complain, but there wasn’t much room left in the kitty bed.

Too Darned Cute

<<Don’t bother me while I sleep!>>  <<It’s too hard to get back to sleep when you wake me up.>> <<How rude that you have a bright light burning overhead.>>  <<Can’t you see that I need my beauty rest?>>

Princess & the Pea

This is Macaroni looking for all the world like the Prince and the Pea.  She’s sitting on no less than 5 blankets stacked up in one of the kitty beds.  <<I was perfectly comfy until the human woke me up to take some silly pictures.>>

Just Hanging Around

This is Corky hanging out under a chair on the cute cat hammock.  You’d have to be looking for him to see him unless you were paying particular attention to the floor.  Presumably that’s what makes both hammocks so popular with the cats:  the opportunity to watch the human and other cats without being bothered in return.
