Snuggle Spots

I know that Chase likes to say I don't pay attention to my choice of sleeping spots but that is not so! When I want to sleep I take many environmental factors into consideration. I figured I'd share them with you to prove that I'm actually quite thoughtful AND smart.

1. Is there another cat/human that I can suck heat from?
2. Is there something soft and comfortable to lie on/in?
3. How long will the spot last? Chase tends to get up quickly.
4. Is there a heating vent nearby?
5. How about coverage, can I completely burrow?

Taking all of these parameters into mind I decided last night to snuggle in the triangle that the Lap lady creates with her leg sometimes when she's sleeping under the covers. I circled in, snuggled up, and even licked her thigh to tell her it was a perfect spot. Of course I eventually needed to BREATH so I came up and put my head on her pillow and slept there. And as usual, my purring got me kicked out because I'm so loud.

I hope this proves that I am actually very discerning about my sleeping spots.

Kaze, I can see you are furry discriminating. It's too bad there isn't a way to breathe under the covers. I like to cuddle there too...

I don't like being under the covers. Oh, I like to go look around, but I don't like to stay there.

Oh, the bent-leg triangle is the best sleeping spot ever! When I sleep there, I start licking my Mommie's leg, then I start kneading on her leg. Then I get kicked out because my nails are scratchy.

Those are great criteria for determining a sleeping spot Kaze. :) I can stay under the covers for most of the night, though, although my humans do wonder how I breathe! But there's enough air under there for me. :)

Oh, we cannot sleep under the covers...simply because we cannot pile all on top of one another under there. We like sleeping in a huge heap in between Mommy's legs...

I like to cuddle up close and snuggle but I never go under the covers. I like to breathe fresh air.

I completely immerse myself under the covers right next to my Lap Lady if I'm not warm enough snuggled with Willow. I Love to be warm - Why isn't it almost summer yet?

Bubbles likes to be under the covers if it is cold. In general he likes to sleep on the bed with Mom, but of course now Madness also wants to sleep on the bed. So Bubbles gets off and goes to sleep on the couch. And about 30 seconds later Madness also goes to sleep on the couch. *sigh*.

I love the bent leg triangle, but on top of the covers. If I'm under the covers, I go nuts and start attacking everything in sight. When the Lady has to turn over, she sits up, slides her legs carefully out from around me, then turns over and slides her legs back into place, making another leg triangle. I don't have to move at all (ha - as if I would).

Kaze, you and your motor. Too bad it gets you kicked out of bed and a good snuggle spot. I like being outside the covers and right up against mum's back.
