Puzzle Cats

four black cats on bed

Puzzle cats, because they fit together like puzzle pieces even if one is under the bedspread.

All tucked in with each other, Mimi and her children snoozed on the bed in the early afternoon. From the top at 12:00 is Mimi, at about 4:00 is Mewsette, at 6:00 is Mr. Sunshine and at about the 10:00 position is Jelly Bean. The lump under the bedspread at the very bottom is Giuseppe being used as a pillow by Mr. Sunshine.

Below…”What are you looking at? We are going to finish our nap.” The three siblings, four if you count Giuseppe under the bedspread, are never so close in personality as when they awaken from a nap together—they’ll often sit up and look at me in nearly the same position, ears and eyes and heads all angled the same, or very nearly so. Mama Mimi is not in step with her children, and that is okay for the matriarch of the family. But they did get up after this and I finally managed to make the bed.

They kind of remind me of meerkats or baby possums all lined up on their mother.

Giuseppe’s Afternoon Nap: 2011

Giuseppe's Afternoon Nap

An afternoon nap on the bed, but where is the cat?

Giuseppe has to be under the quilt, not on top of it.

I don’t know why, but every time he does this I have a good laugh, a big lump under the covers  but he probably thinks no one can see him. He has no idea what I find so funny.

Here are a few other views of cats under the bedspread, most of them Giuseppe thought not all.

Undercover

Do you see a cat on this bed?

Do you see a cat on this bed?

I don’t see a cat on this bed.

I don’t see a cat at all.

But I do see a lump under the quilt.

Think I’ll go and give it a squeeze and see what happens.

(It was Giuseppe! He is famous for this, click here to see a few others.)

The Systematic Destruction of My Bed

It started out innocently enough with Mimi, Mewsette and Mr. Sunshine.

I made my bed today, but what’s the point some days? Every time I went upstairs my bed was a little worse for the wear and had one more cat on it. But who could resist? I made sure I had the camera with me each time.

Then JB joined and there were four, though someone had burrowed under the quilt, then left.

Then Giuseppe joined, but crawled up under the quilt.

I awakened them a little later. Giuseppe crawled out from under the quilt. Look at all those ears!

The final arrangement, hard to tell but things are piled up all over.

Lazy Bums: 2011

Lazy Bums

I wondered why I was alone at my desk all afternoon yesterday. Upstairs I found all four having undone my neatly made bed to their own specifications.

You may only see three black cats, Mewsette, Mr. Sunshine and Jelly Bean. but that lump on the far left next to Mewsette is Giuseppe—under the covers. He has to be different. He also makes a good pillow.

This photo reminds me of How to Subdue and Control Cats from just two weeks ago. Though this photo is from 2011, it could have been today which turned out to be quite chilly after weeks of unseasonably warm weather—if I hadn’t packed the wool afghan away already. They did cuddle on the bed, but instead came downstairs to cuddle under the kitty keep-warm lamps, otherwise known as my task lights, at my desk.

One Undercover

One Undercover

It’s feeling a little chilly for the first time this year, chilly enough for Giuseppe to find his winter napping spot—underneath whichever bedspread is currently on the bed. Here, he and Mr. Sunshine are curled back to back, even though G is under the quilt and S on top, a happy situation on a cold, rainy October afternoon.

What Kitty?

What kitty?

You know the kitty philosophy—if they can’t see you, then you can’t see them, and they leave no trace behind. Surely no one would notice the large lump under the covers. About as much as I don’t notice a black cat on the white bedspread.

This is Giuseppe’s latest discovery—getting under the edge of the bedspread near the floor, then climbing up the side of the bed to the top of the mattress. No, I’d never know he’s there.
