Playing Peek-a-Boo

This is a picture of my bed.

It's just an ordinary bed..some pillows and some quilts.

It's quite comfy and a wonderful place to lay my head and night.

If you'll look closely though, there appears to be a lump in my bed.

Now, while I have never been in the military (although DH has been--Navy man), I do like a well made bed.

Sadly, I was/am one of those moms who, once the bed has been made, you need to keep your rumpkuss off of it. (I know, I know.....).

I think this lump is a result of God telling me not to sweat the small stuff. I mean really....a lumpy, unmade bed is nothing if you are getting to spend great quality time with your family---right??

Thing is, I've had this perpetual lump in my bed almost everyday for the last 5 or so years....

What is causing this lumpy life lesson for me???


It's Miss Kitty!!

In all my life, I've never saw a cat that is so concerned about being completely comfortable.

If she's cold, she will get under the quilt on my bed.

If her food bowl is almost empty--not empty, almost empty--she will meow and follow you and wrap herself around your legs until you can't stand it any longer and will top off a half empty bowl.

If she's hot, she will sprawl out in the middle of the floor, especially where there's hardwood, with all four legs in the air....and she always seems to find the spot where the most traffic is.

If there's----ummmmm----unmentionables--in her litter box, she will make trip after trip from the litter box to wherever you are to stare you down.

If she's curled up on a cushion on the couch or chair or anywhere that you need to sit down--and you try to move her, she will hiss and her fur will stand up on end and she will glue her ears back to show you that you are a huge pain in her behind!

But, in spite of all her moodiness, she truly is a joy to have around and she's free entertainment!!!

Your cat looks a lot like our Tigger Tiger. He is crazy and trys to do thing he knows he isn't supposed to. Then when you catch him he runs and hides.

Awww- how cute! yeah, seriously, how could you kick that cute little thing out! What a cute little lump it makes- as long as everyone knows it's a cat and not a pillow to land on. :)

She is so cute. We have two cats; Tigger and Poppy and the kids love them. Love those photos.

Your cat looks exactly like ours! Is your cat...temperamental? Ours will be purring and loving one second and then growl and attack the next second. She's cute and funny, but very unpredictable.

oh how cute!!! Our beagle will bark a spine-chilling bark when he wants water or food.

Our poodle knocks her bowl around and it's just as annoying as his bark, lol!

Oh my goodness.. she is gorgeous! She reminds me of a wonderful kitty I had almost 20 years ago (??? really?? yes, really) named Shelby. Same striping, fur, personality... LOVED my Shell-kitty. I am cat-less now and so sad about it, but after 17 years of living with my kitties (and some dogs amongst them), hubby is happy with just a dog. For now, he wins...
Sweet, wonderful post.. I promise you that there will be a day when you look back on it and are SO glad that you posted it!
