Laying Low

I knew I was in trouble last night. Mom tucked in at 8pm, complaining of being tired from being kept up the night before. I strolled in, casual like, and took my place of honor on Dad's pillow. I looked as cute as possible and purred real loud when petted. I knew she was caving when I got some extra scritches.

Are you really gonna kick all this out of your bed?



 At 2am Mom woke with a start, mumbling something about hearing me chewing on celephane.

Who me? There's no cellaphane Mom. Maybe you were dreaming it? Sure you can turn on the light and look around if you want. Hey while you're up, maybe you should pee? Do I want the sink on for a sip? Well sure that would be nice Mom. Are you hungry for a snack Mom, cause I could keep you company... make sure the kitchen is free from moths. Would I like a snack? Well since you're up... Nom, nom, nom... thanks Mom.

I managed to hold out till 5:40am till I did a hip nudge. Yes I am back in the warm embrace of the family. Gotta know when to work it and when to lay low. Peace out.

  1. That cellophane story has me thinking. Hmmm: the outcomes of her hearing the imaginary cellophane were pretty good for you, weren't they?

  2. I need to vent: Binga NEVER lays low and you would not believe what she gets away with! Is that crazy-making or what?

  11. Fin dear, I think you know that your Mum would never actually lock you out of the bedchamber. But you did a good job convincing her that you believed her.

    That pillow sure looks comfy

  16. I've been waking mom up around 4am for dawn noms. She gets up to feed us, but then she can't get back to sleep. Sometimes she'll toss & turn for a couple hours then when she gets up, I snuggle down on the end of the bed and sleep till mid afternoon! HA!
