Don’t I look happy and comfy?

Last night after dinner, I had settled into Dad’s lap for what I had hoped was going to be a nice snuggle and snooze. I really needed it after a tumultuous day at Cat Scouts. As I promised my sisfurs no Cat Scout reports until the New Year, I will not burden you with the details now.

Guess who’s on the bottom?

Much to my dismay, this comfy nap was soon interrupted. My shadow sisfur, Astrid, decided that my lap looked as inviting to her as Dad’s had looked to me. The following pictures show what ensued. Being a good Cat Scout and big brother, who doesn’t mind being worshipped, I sucked it up and indulged the little interloper.

Yep, it’s me…still trying to nap!

Not looking very happy!

Shortly after we settled in for a long winter’s nap, Dad declared us too HEAVY and unceremoniously dumped us out of his lap!

That’s so sweet! We do that too but our daddy knows he has to sit there until we’re ready to get up or else he has to put up with the wrath of mommy which is way worse than his legs going numb because of us!

Happy New Year to all of you!

Mau you look so cute bathing your sisfur. It’s so nice to have someone help you clean around your ears. Dad’s have such nice laps to lay in. Our Dad has a fleece blankie. As soon as he sits in his recliner with the fleece blankie we all pile on. It’s a nightly ritual at our house.Love, Cali, Andy, Tater and Shelly (C.A.T.S)

Colehaus Cats December 31, 2013 at 1:16 pm

Oh man! Unfair… even if you do look incredibly cute together. Wishing you the very best of Happy New Years. May dad’s lap always be open and warm. See you in 2014! Purrs…

Playful Kittyr December 31, 2013 at 1:00 pm

Mauricio, you are quite the mancat! It was very nice of you to indulge your sis-fur and let her share Dad’s lap with you. It was even nicer of you to give her a bath. We all need a little lovin’ sometimes. 🙂

Since you are such a delight, I have nominated you for the Sunshine Award! You can pick it up at my blog anytime 🙂

Mauricio, that waz furry nice of you to give Astrid a bath. Too bad the kitty nap didn’t last long. Hope you gotted another nap in after Dad made you get out of hims lap.

Mau, you have a very cute face that looks a lot like Oreo’s nose!

Thank you so much fur keeping Jazpurr in your purrz. We took him to the vet this afternoon and Dr. Johnson recommended an antihistamine and continue giving him antibiotics. Jazpurr was a little dehydrated, so I am giving him spoonfuls of tuna water every so often. He doesn’t really like being messed with and I don’t have a way to completely isolate him. Trying to feed him something he likes is hard to do with other kitties wanting some at the same time… Going to be a long night. Purrz, Katie Kat.

Sammy December 30, 2013 at 3:33 pm

What a sweet bunch of photos Mau. What a patient soul you are allowing Astrid to pop up onto your Dad’s lap ON TOP OF YOU (!) to beg for a special brotherly bath session! And you were kind and considerate and didn’t whap her away – you kindly gave her what she wanted. That is a VERY sweet thing to do (Cat Scouts can be manly AND sweet at the same time you know!!).

Purrhaps your Dad’s lap will be available to you again soon – at a moment when Astrid has something ELSE to occupy her so you can have the lap to yourself!
