Happy Sleeper

We're still taking turns with who gets to sleep with the humans. One night it's Star, then the next night it's Leo. Star always acts like we're dragging her off to prison every time it's her turn. As soon as we're all settled in though, she's happy and cuddly and playful.

Leo wishes every night were his night, he tries to bolt up past us and is baffled when the gate is in the way. When it is his turn, he sleeps at the foot of the bed, usually leaning on either Greg's or my feet.

Star never sleeps on the bed until there's only one person in it so she can have their whole side. She will keep coming onto the bed and getting pets and scritches, then she leaves again and comes back in about 10 minutes. Occasionally she'll take a short nap on my hip or back, but she doesn't stay like Leo does.

Last night was Leo's night. I looked down to the foot of the bed to see where he was before I turned over and this is what I saw:
 
 
Is that the cutest thing ever??
 
 
Close up. What a happy sleeper!


Oh yes, another day-after-Leo's-birthday-surprise hint! This might be a hard one... hee hee!
You'll just have to tune in on Tuesday to see what it is!
Don't forget his birthday on Monday! It's going to be a while blow out!

Awww, what a happy kitty!!

Carmine always sleeps on my legs or feet. Milita sleeps either on my bed or the office chair (but usually my bed). The peaceful kitties help me sleep :)

This is indeed really cute!
I cannot sleep on the bed when both humans are sleeping in it. I missed the time when I could sleep next to my human...

Aw, you're so cute, Leo! When the weather is warm, we rarely sleep on the bed, but in the wintertime, that's where you'll find us most nights!

Hello my dear and loyal friends who have comforted me in my afflictions! I am still in the midst of punishing the Human, so I am UTB quite a lot. I am out on my Tower though now, looking soulfully out onto the street, thinking bitter thoughts. Soon I will return UTB and brood about vengeance. XOXOXO Star darling!
