Jake and Bathsheba

A blog by two cats who used to live in the same house in Northern Virginia. Unfortunately, they are both no longer with us.

Tuesday Treat Time for Tortie and Tabby

In our house we have a bedtime ritual. Mom climbs into bed, reaches into the nightstand drawer, and pulls out a package of Temptations to give us a snack. Here we are waiting for her to go to bed. She is trying to use the Temptations to get us closer together. She sometimes will hold that treat out for me very close to Jake. Oh, how I hate to be near him, but those Temptations are so yummy that occasionally I might even --shudder--touch him.

Mom's great desire is to have both of us sleep on the bed with her. I already do that, and I do NOT want to share with Jake. Dad had him well trained to stay off the bed because Dad did not like to sleep with cats. (Can you imagine?) Mom used to go to bed before Dad and I would sleep with her until I would be kicked out when Dad came to sleep. Being able to sleep with Mom all night long is the only positive result of Dad's move to California.

Bedtime Temptations is a very wonderful ritual. I might ask my Mommie to start it in my house! I love sleeping on the bed, and sometimes I sleep on my Mommie's head. But Pixie sleeps downstairs.

We have not been visiting around much. Wowie we miss a lot of posties over here!

WE love our daily routine. mom forgets but we never do. Prinnie wears a secret watch so she knows the time when we are supposed to get the attention we deserve.

Happy Day to both of you!

Momma always gives us a bedtime snack too. WE love our temptations. Unfortunately for me, Boo is the only kitty allowed in the bedroom, Momma sayz if I came in we would fight all night long and she would never sleep. As it is she says Boo keeps her so warm at night she keeps her awake. Boo is a like a warm blanket of furr wrapped around you!

I still don't like not being able to sleep with Momma. No matter how many temptations she gives me.

It's a very good thing that we have a King sized bed 'cause 4 kitties and a doggy take up lots of space! Truth is that Powder sleeps ON Mommy and I sleep next to (read ON) Daddy's head. Puff and Rudy sprawl out in the center and suck up all the heat. The Dog prefers the foot of the bed, I think he's scared we'll whap him! (Smart dog!)

We're glad our treats dont come with "condishuns", but we like to sleep together an with The Big Thing, so that's not a problem.

we get Temptations before bed too. see, the Lady sleeps on the couch in the living room and Midnight waits till she sees her bringing out the blankets and pillows to make her bed, then she jumps right into the middle of it all and won't move. so now the Lady gives us a bunch of Temptations in the kitchen, then hurries to get her bed made while we eat so she can get there before Midnight. then Midnight walks all over her demanding petting for 10 minutes, then goes to sleep on her legs. next Cocoa jumps up and cuddles up against the Lady's chest and face. I sleep with the Blonde Girl in the Blonde Girl's bedroom.
