The Personal Property of Cats

Misty May sleeps on top of her dad every evening before taking over my pillow to become The Cat on My Head as we sleep. She’s usually on his chest hugging him or in his lap. I have shared many of her hugging photos in the past. This particular photo comes from a lap night. As you can see, she was less than thrilled with the iPhone camera flashing in her face. The calico interloper, Lily Olivia, snoozes away in the background unaware of the photo session.




This photo probably isn’t unexpected as it is yet another super cold winter night. But for Misty May, it doesn’t matter the outside temperature. Hot as an inferno or cold as an igloo she can be found atop one of her humans. She considers us her personal property. No other cat better get in her way or they will get an earful of her displeasure and probably a smack as well. Of course, each of the kitties claim us as belonging solely to him or her.

In the time it has taken me to prepare this post, Fiona has taken over my lap where she purred away while I loved on her until she grew tired of the attention. Astrid is now in that very same spot giving me a good four-pawed kneading and serenading me with rumbling purrs.

I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Life is good for cats and humans!

Misty May our Angel Allegra (maltese doggie) used to sleep around her humans’ heads at night, too. They also loved it! 🙂

Same here – and two cats on a narrow bed in my new home take a lot of my sleeping space… but love is love… especially cat’s love. Am I the only one who is awakened by 2 night cats at 4 a.m. for a ‘midnight’ feeding…? I fear I have spoiled them because I
sleep in short drafts and I am generally awake at 4 a.m. … so if on some night I happen to be sleeping at that time I cannot even enjoy it. Ahhh cats, delights and chores!

It may take a lot longer to get the posts up at home, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world! Right now Marty is on my lap, Abbe asleep on the top of the couch right by my head, Mazie on my feet and Ralphie and Anne sharing the space along my left side. We are all heading to bed in a few where we will all settle in with them all touching me…..heaven in my world…..heaven……

I love having a blanket of kitties! A cat on my head, a cat on my chest, a cat at my feet – there’s nothing better. As I’m typing this (laying down in bed), Sassy is curled up on my shoulder and chest, purring away. This is the life.

Sometimes Cats Herd You January 13, 2015 at 5:51 pm

Ashton tucks herself right next to the head peep at night, and she is very possessive, even if she isn’t sitting on top. She often growls at a passing Newton, “Keep moving, nothing to see here!”

Kitty love is just the best! What a cute photo of Misty May. Sending big cuddles to F & G!

Flynn January 13, 2015 at 5:16 pm

I like to sleep on my mum too. I lay on her chest with my nose against her chin. Sometimes I make her sneeze because she says my whiskers are tickling her nose. After a while I turn around and she has to sleep with my butt in her face.

Niles was the cat on momFOD’s head. Then he grew bold and became the cat on her right side. Now he’s the cat that won’t stop touching her all night and sometimes strokes her cheek and stares at her, then licks her face at 4 am, then settles back down and insists she hold his hands. – Crepes.

My Mom is my personal hot water bottle and I hope that never changes…….I don’t sleep with her though – I like sleeping on my own at night – BUT during the day, the minute she sits, I’m THERE. My favorite nap spot is right there on her lap. Dad’s too squirmy so I don’t go to him – Mom never lets me down though!!!

Love this photo by the way………..!!

Hugs, sammy
