A Tummy Tuesday Doozy of a Snoozy

I have come across some strange bed fellows at our house, but this combo was more surprising than the Lisbeth/Fiona one from last week.


Doozy of a Snoozy strange pairing


Granted, there’s a bit of space between these two, but it was still a huge shock to walk in on this scene. Giulietta rarely sleeps on our bed, but she can be found there occasionally during the day. To find her there in close proximity to Lily Olivia was a total shock. Lily Olivia was soundly snoozing in her favorite “bunny” position. If you look closely, you can see that Giulietta had one eye open. Lily may not have been aware of Giulietta’s presence, but Giulietta obviously knew Lily was behind her. Giulietta only snuggles with Fiona, but as these two are not officially snuggling, I guess Giulietta thought it was okay to nap next to Lily.

We all know that kitties can easily be awakened when they are merely catnapping. That is no longer the case with Lily Olivia, however, which is truly strange. I have wondered lately if she has lost some of her hearing and that’s why she can sleep so soundly. Sometimes she doesn’t even wake up when she’s called for breakfast or dinner. That never happened until recently. At age 17 some hearing loss would not be unusual. As she is in good health otherwise, I’m not too worried.

With reference to Lily’s health, I had not reported on her recent senior panel blood work. Both her BUN and liver enzymes were slightly elevated by just a few points each. Dr. Neel said at her age she didn’t feel it was much to worry about. She suggested it would be good if we could get Lily to eat a renal diet. She’s not picky so this shouldn’t be too difficult. I was happy to find out that she does not have hyperthyroidism, which is very common with cats of her age. With Fiona’s health issue, we don’t need another kitty who requires medication.

Wherever you are snoozing today, I hope you are as comfy as all the Kitties Blue.

Good-bye Spooky

SpookyKitties Blue and I were so sad to hear that 15 and Meowing‘s Spooky has left for the Rainbow Bridge. If you have not had the opportunity to stop in and leave your condolences for Mom Ellen, Phoebe, Cat Scout Sammy and the rest of the gang, please do so. This is the third kitty they have lost in a short amount of time, and I know they can use our support and prayers. We are sending them lots of purrs, hugs and love.

Such cuties sleeping on the bed. I am glad Lily doesn’t need meds. Thank you or writing about Spooky and for your kind comment on my blog. I am blessed to have such caring friends. XO

That is sweet, taking a nap together like that.

It sure was sad to read about Spooky. We made a card/badge fur Miss Ellen…though nothing will fill that empty spot…

They look cute side by side. My mum says there is nothing wrong with my hearing and it seems I can hear a mouse from 50 paces. When I am napping though, she says I have selective hearing just like my dad!

Super cute snoozy! Glad to hear that Lily Olivia is in good health! Lucy, our dog, has lost all of her hearing. It’s pretty funny when we get home to let her out of her kennel, and she doesn’t even notice we’ve gotten home. She sleeps so soundly, and I can jump up and down and yell right in front of her, and she doesn’t even notice. That is some seriously good sleep!
Sampy sends Astrid a kiss for every snoozing kitty in the world, and we all send lots of love!

I love seeing these strange nap time pairs! I wonder what might happen if Lily Olivia truly didn’t know Giulietta was there, and awoke to find her snoozing happily on the bed with her…

My angel Rosie started showing evident hearing loss as she aged. By the time she was 21, I’m not even sure she would have heard a falling tree from a foot away. It didn’t seem to bother her any, though, and perhaps she even liked the quiet. I’m glad that all else is more or less normal with Lily Olivia’s health!

We were also very sad to hear of Spooky’s passing. Ellen is certainly in our thoughts and prayers.

This just may be one of the best titles ever. I have two that surprise me when I see them close together a well.

The Island Cats April 19, 2016 at 6:55 am

Well, if there’s a cozy spot to nap, it’s hard to resist it even if there’s already somebuddy using it. 🙂

Mom feels that my “long hard naps” are thanks to a hearing loss too – AND I tolerate the vacuum cleaner better than ever before as well so hearing loss isn’t such a BAD thing sometimes! We are so sad about Spooky heading to the Bridge but he joins others of their family there and will now keep an eye on things from afar. Happy napping Kitties Blue – WHOEVER you choose to nap with!

Love, Sammy

So sorry to hear the news about Spooky. I had a black cat called Peter when I was small and still remember him with love…

Over the past year, Maggie & Grizelda have become napping buddies. This was a shock, as Grizelda never has been one to cuddle or nap with anyone, but me or Dad. Even as a tiny baby, she would sleep alone, though Chloe Jo sought her out and forced herself on Grizelda. This was why we kept the two of them.
Chloe Jo is not feeling well, lately. We hope she snaps out of it. Her breathing is bad and she is restless. We are not sure if it is pain, but she is under care, again.
My heart broke for Spooky & Ellen. He was a cool guy.
