I have resigned myself to a sleepless existence.

Every night, I share a bed with three creatures who each want to be as close to me as possible.

The worst is Bogo.  Not only does he sleep on my pillow and cover my face in cat hair, but when he's not sleeping, he uses my head as his own personal step ladder.

If he sees any of the neighbors' cats invading our yard, he leaps off the bed (clawing my face in the process), skitters into the living room, and looks out that window, yowling indignantly.  It's all part of an intricate nightly schedule.

Lately we've considered shutting our bedroom door at night, but I have a sinking feeling it isn't going to help.

Oh well.  At least I know I'm loved.


  1. OMG, I love this! My favorite part is the illustration of your cat's nightly rounds. Seriously? you need to have this printed on greeting cards. I would buy 50 right this second.

    Awesome as usual.

    Have you ever thought about doing a book of some sort?


  2. Oh, my gosh, this is my cat, exactly! Including the 'shoop, shoop, shoop!' When my cousin was staying with me, he would laugh at how, every so often, I would toss the cats out of my room and slam the door. Then, a couple of hours later, re-open said door, on account of the shooping. Cats are evil little cutie pies!

  3. I never understood people comparing cats to kids. It's all making sense now. Your pictures look eerily familiar....

  4. I love kitties! My mom was allergic so I missed out growing up, but hopefully I'll get a cat of my own someday. I think I'll train it to NOT sleep in my bedroom though. =P

  5. My cats do the same exact thing! And the cat that sleeps on my head licks my hair and my forehead (causing cat-tounge burns) and drools on me. I know because the drool runs down my face and wakes me up.
    Gotta love cats!

  6. I feel your pain! I used to have a cat. Now I have a dog. And he just freaks out and barks really loud for no reason in the middle of the night. Either that, or he snores. So yeah, animals don't make the best bedmates.
