Sleeps In Strange Places

Kitties like to sleep in strange places, I bet yours has a few places that make you shake your head in wonder. I mean how could a sink be comfortable? Beezer does that, of course, and he has a few that are all his own.

Folks that visit our home often ask why we have a kitty bed in the bathroom. The answer is quite simple. When he was younger Beezer got into the habit of pulling the towels down from the towel bar, wet or dry it didn't matter (I have no idea why). Then he discovered the joy of making a nest to sleep in them. After a while I got tired of stepping out of the shower only to find a lot of kitty fur on my towel. I thought that if he had his own bed there he'd leave my towel alone. (I know, I know, silly human.) But he has found that he likes his bed better than my wet towel. He still pulls it down over himself like a blanket. I can never win.

He also likes to nap in the evil carrier. He out grew the one he had as a kitten. (He's a big boy! )When I brought the new one home I put one of his favorite blankies in it and left it in the living room so he could give it a good sniff and with luck, I thought, get a little used to it so it wouldn't such a pain to get him into it when I had to. One day I walked in and I saw him napping in there. So I left it in the living room -- hey it might be needed in an emergency.



More fine places to sleep can be found at the Firday Ark

On Sunday its the Carnival Of The Cats this week at Crazy Meezer

Hey Beezer I sleeps in my carrier sometimes too. It can be a safe quiet place to unwind sometimes. So I go into my carrier right away. Plus when I go places it is rarely to the VET.

On top of the blanket but UNDER the comforter, curled against my back - that's where my Siamese boy Tim likes to sleep. Sam, my Maine Coon, on the other hand, sleeps with his head next to mine on the pillow and one paw resting on my face.

Heaven help me if I try to roll over in bed at night!

Those are comfy pictors, Beezer. I love to be snuggled in Mom's wet towel, in her arms. Bonnie likes to stay in her carrier, too.

I hate the evil carrier. I know when Momma is getting it out of the closet, I run and hide. You are furry brave.

Yes Beezer you are really brave sleeping in the carrier but it probably feels safe for you kind of like a command position.
Angie sleeps anywhere and I haf mine own bed in the hallway near the stairs so I can watch out from all positions.

I like to sleep in between my two humans!

You look furry snuggly under that towel, Beezer, but SLEEPING IN THE EVIL CAT CARRIER??? Are you nuts? I just have to see it coming out of the spare room and I start running faster than a fat cat should be able to run!! Actually your evil cat carrier looks almost the same as mine. As the heating has gone on now, I am sleeping in the fleecy bed by the radiator (which I ignore during the summer). I also like to nap between my humans in the bed, and anywhere on the living room floor. And under my yellow chair, of course.

Yes, nesting in the bathroom towels is the best. We like them 'cause they smell like our 'beans of course. ~Merlin, Shadow, Ko KO

Jasmine thinks those pictures of you are furry cute. She always says that orange is a furry good colour on a kitty.
