Doozy of a Snoozy 1


We have always said that our bed is the DMZ. And in most instances that is true. Both cats and humans go there to sleep not do battle. Occasionally a hiss or growl will escape from the lips of one of the pusses or a paw/hand will dart out and whap a bed mate (including me hitting the kitties’ dad to stop him from snoring), but for the most part things are copacetic.


Doozy of a Snoozy 2


That is why some of our doozies of snoozies occur there. For two nights in a row Lily Olivia and Mauricio were touching each other. Mauricio was awake part of the time, but Lily never knew what was happening. I would have expected him to pull away so as to avoid her calico cooties, but he was totally chill. He even gave himself a bath while this touching was occurring. He did not, however, give Lily a bath. Had he been foolish enough to try, he probably would have gotten a whap.


Doozy of a Snoozy 3


I suspect Mauricio’s laid-back attitude might have something to do with his fat lip. I think he must be feeling a little puny and can’t be bothered with pestering Lily. I know he has not suddenly taken a liking to her. Though she’s been here the longest, Lily Olivia has always been at the bottom of the pecking order. And the others will “peck” on her whenever they get the opportunity.


Doozy of a Snoozy 4


Mau and I had a quick visit to the vet today for her to assess what is going on with his swollen bottom lip. She suspects he might have been bitten or stung by a bug (not one of his fursibs). He got an anti-inflammatory injection and will be taking antibiotics for a few days. So maybe we will have a couple more nights of touchy-feely, or maybe we will return to each cat on his or her little patch of bed or human. I’ll keep you posted.

Don’t forget to join us tomorrow for Athena and Marie’s Caturday Art Blog Hop.

Mau, i heard you have a “fat lip”. What happened? WhT did the doctor say? I had a swollen ip too, but doctor said to just observe for at least a week. If it doesn’t go away then doctor had to “stab” my lower lip with meds.

I love group nap time!! Such wonderful and sweet pictures… even if Mau and Lily Olivia weren’t intentionally being sweet. Hope Mau’s lip gets better. We had an incident with some sort of flying ant stinging thing (not sure what it was) and I was afraid Sophie and/or Caster might have gotten stung. I’ve been checking them for any swollen spots, but so far so good. I think they are in the clear. Poor Mau…

In discomfort we all seek comfort after all … lovely photos. Nice kitties. Nice humans too who let them sleep so cuddled up. I do too, but I have only 2 cats who created separate bed sections on each side of me. Best wishes for the lip, poor baby !!!

That is so funny about your bed. Ours is the same. Dad INSISTS that no fighting or even playing happen on the bed. We are pretty good about it too.
Oh Meow My I think I can see that fat lip in the picture.
Purrs for Mau go with extra purring.

Everyone looks so peaceful and content. Lucky kitties. Mau had a bite on his lower lip? It does sound like he was trying to bite something and a bug bit him instead.


Ellen Pilch August 1, 2014 at 12:13 pm

They all look cute and peaceful, makes me tired.

mariodacat August 1, 2014 at 10:49 am

Oh how we love sleeping kitties on a bed. They just make your heart melt. Had to laugh when you said bed wars. I’m an only cat, but sometimes M and I have a bed war. he he

Poor Mau! Hopefully all is well with that fat lip….antibiotics are magic. In the meantime looks like a lot of good snoozing happening in the DMZ!

We hope the meds clear up poor Mau’s fat lip. We don’t know who’s actually at the bottom of the pecking order in our home, but we know for certain it isn’t Tutu!

Good Meowning. We hope Mauricio’s lip goes back to normal soon. Only Hannah goes to bed with Mum as Lucy likes a blankie on Mum’s comfy chair as she doesn’t like to share her sleeping space!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

We are usually very peaceful on the bed with my human, but if it is just her boyfriend and she has not come to bed yet, Binga will beat up on Boodie and make her squeal! Binga gets away with a lot when it comes to my human’s boyfriend – he does not know how to say NO and make it sound like he means it.

Aw, sweet kisses on the swollen lip. We know all too well pecking orders and we say, “HISS!” to all that! Thank you again for nominating us for the Shine On award a little while back! We’ll post it August 1st and pass it on to others. Thank you again! Purrs…..

Spitty the Kitty August 1, 2014 at 12:11 am

Well, for all her ranking at the bottom of the social network, she certainly looks peaceful and pleased with herself here, unworried about the proximity of the Fat Lip Boy!
