Making it Right

The other night Mom had just headed off to bed, when I remembered they had washed the sheets. I knew they had ruined my careful pillow arrangements. I like them at a slight angle so I can rest my head on the edge.

I raced to the bed to make things just the way I like them before my parents had the opportunity to mess things up even more. Mom was already settled into her side, so I lept onto the bed and raced over her to get to my pillows. I was right to be concerned.

The sham was, well, a sham. I hate that sham. I let out a deep sigh and began digging at the pillow pile with both front paws. I really needed to get my shoulders into it. Those pillows weren't moving. So I began rooting under the top pillow with my head. I managed to get the top pillow up a bit and decided that sham had to go.

So I pawed my way in, and began working my  body down the length, planning to burrow out the other end. When I was about half way down the length I stopped for a little rest, and that's when things took a scary turn.

I heard the sound of some evil beast snickering. I feared for myself and for Mom too, she was out there alone with the beast. 

Next thing I knew something touched my side! It felt like fingers, and the beast laughed louder! I got a little freaked out, and I started down the remainder of the pillow to make my escape, and save Mom. You'll never guess what friends...

The end of the pillow was a dead end! I could not escape. I was trying to turn around or back out, and again the fingers came at me. All while the evil beast snickered.

I managed to turn myself around and raced out of the sham, ready to do battle, but I saw no beast. Mom had managed to scare it off, thank Cod. She grabbed me for a forced cuddle, and cause she was scared, I let her.

  3. We can just imagine you saying, "This -- this is just a sham!" =)

    Things sounded scary for a little bit, but glad that the beast disappeared when you went to confront it.

  6. Fin! You were so right to worry about the pillows. Obviously a laundry troll infested the sheets when they were changed. They are tricky beasts; we are relieved to see you vanquished it, AND saved your Mom from a Horrible Fate. Kudos!

  7. Try sleeping with 4 cats! Disco walks on my face, Coco hisses if anyone steps on her though! Kiki chews my hair and Brighton...well, he ummm, nurses on Disco...

    Your story made us all laff and laff though, because we know humans miss us if we aren't in bed with them. Teri never makes the bed unless company is coming over cuz she leaves it mussy for us, awwwww.

    Who knew bedtime was such a risk? We think we'll stay out of our mom's bedroom from now on!

  20. Oh wow, that sounds super scary!! I prefer to sleep up against my mommy or at the foot of the bed so I don't have those pillow problems. Thank Cod(I am borrowing your phrase) because I do not want to get stuck like you did!!

    Love, Scout

  21. We all laughed and laughed Fin - but only because we didn't know pillows could be so dangerous - we'll have to sleep on mum's head now to protect her from the pillow beastie.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
