Tortie/Tuxie Tuesday Doozy of a Snoozy

It’s not often that Mauricio lets one of his sisters get the upper paw, but that is exactly what happened on this particular night.

Before it’s time to go to sleep, Calista Jo likes to tuck herself under my left arm and snuggle in as close as she can without actually crawling into my skin with me. (She definitely would if she could!) Mauricio, however, was asleep very close to her spot. Lucky for C.J., he was more comatose than merely indulging in a cat nap. One would have thought he’d just completed a marathon or saved the neighborhood from marauding marmots single-pawed.

Anyhoo…this is what ensued, all while an oblivious Mauricio snoozed.

As long as I am not caught in the middle of a smacky-paws war or one of Mau’s and C.J’s pre-dinner, hissing and spitting, wrestling matches, I mind my own business and let sleeping cats lie!

Aw, how secretly sweet! Good that you let them be!

What kind of neighborhood do you live in with marauding marmots?! Actually, we had a coyote at the end of the street last week, so I guess marmots aren’t too unusual.
It’s nice that C.J. and Mauricio got so snuggly, even if Mauricio wasn’t aware of it!

This is such a sweet series of photos. I am glad the holidays are over. I really plan on getting back to a routine, again…a positive one. Thank you for always being there for me. I appreciate you more than I can say. (P.S. I need your address.) XXOO

This was a cute flick picture. Mau is right out of it. Shows they don’t have to hiss and spit but can get along. Thuinking of mine with Cow Kitty.

This is too precious! I bet Mauricio makes for a purrfectly warm and cozy pillow, Calista Jo. Happy snoozing!
