Paws in Bed by Skeeter
Stacey sent me the cutest email today. Titled “Signs you are having a bad day”. It was of course all these beautiful furry critters in precarious situations! The captions above each picture made the email as much as the adorable pictures.
I could not help but laugh at the subject title. You see, I had my day start off as bad. I was sound asleep lying on my stomach when suddenly I was awakened at 3:48 (in the morning!) by this horrible pain in the calf of my leg. Of course I immediately think of a leg cramp but nope. It was a 10 pound cat named Sheba doing a balancing act on my calf! I kicked that little toot over to the Saints side of the bed and told her to mess with him because I don’t play her bed time games!
I should have been more sympathetic to the Saint because he is dealing with a sinus attack but he is the one that has humored these morning visit from Sheba by allowing her to play this game going on about two years now! So I blame him as much for my pain as Sheba! Hummm, the cat gives me pain and the Saint is to blame. Okay, I am on track here, right Sandy?
I never see Sheba walk on Cheetah. I never see Cheetah walk on Sheba but they seem to think it is okay to walk all over us! Why? I see the two of them snuggle up together at times but not as much as they did in the past when they were younger. But I never see them laying on top of each other using the other as a bed like they do to us! Why?
I had to break Sheba of her lying on the Saints back because he was having major back pains. This was an argument between him and me as he did not feel that Sheba was the cause to his back pain. Funny thing, since I stopped her from sleeping on his back (that I know of) he has yet to come home from work bent over walking like a 100 year old creped man and whining of back pains!
In the picture you will see the Saint and his two pumpernickel cats turning him into a sandwich! He would lie in that position as long as the cats will stay put no matter how much pain his body feels! Not me, I push and fuss and get MY way. After all, they have a million places they can sleep but we only have our bed! Although I have considered going to the guest room at times! From the cat’s antics to the Saint snoring, it is not a wonder I don’t wake up each morning with that Bad Day feeling….
Are we the only ones that have pets which think they can literally walk all over us? We don’t have a dog and I wonder do dogs do this crazy thing of walking all over their human mommy and daddy? If so, I feel so sorry for you Adrienne with your St. Bernard Stella, oh and Ginger with the Great Dane! Hey, maybe my little 10 pound Sheba aint so bad after all….
