Finally, Someone to Nap With


Chris has always been the odd cat out when it comes to napping partners. Other cats would pair up for a nap and Chris was left to join them. Usually that involved waking them up and annoying them, but they would usually accept him being there and go back to sleep.

The problem then was that nobody wanted to play with Chris. He was a gold ball of energy but had no one to help him release that energy. That changed when we got Puck, who would not only play with Chris but would actually give him a run for his money. Then Tigger died…

Puck was the player but Tigger was the only cat left that would tolerate napping with Chris, especially since Chris is not a good napper. I felt bad every time I watched Chris lie down next to a napping Puck, only to see Puck get up and move. We actually considered getting another cat that would be willing to tolerate Chris.

The good news is that lately Puck has stayed put when Chris lies next to him. I have seen them sleeping together several times lately and feel like we no longer need to consider another cat.

The problem now is that Puck spends less time with Rose then he used to. He will come to her for a greeting and then move on like he is too busy to visit. So now Rose wants a cat that will nap with her. It’s always something around here.

    Marles our oldest girl is a lone snoozer..whenever one of the other girls comes up she hisses and tells them in no uncertain terms to go away..she has always been a stand alone kind of gal and seems happy to be so..Cleo though has taken to sneaking up and recently the two have had an awkward but hissy fit free couple of nap sessions…I wonder whether Marbles simply can’t be bothered!

    Our Madison and Louise and Madison and MacKenzie were all great nappy partners and Lisbeth and Astrid when they were younger. Now it is pretty much just sisters, Giulietta and Fiona, who spoon all the time (even when the temperatures are super high). I would suggest getting Rose a nice stuffed animal until you are ready for another kitty. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    They are so sweet together. Thank you for the kind words you left on my blog about the passing of Spooky.

    These photos are beyond adorable. It is always interesting how the dynamic changes as cats come and go. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
