    Re: For animal lovers

    a poem for those bed-lovin dogs out there:

    Dog Bedtime Prayer

    Now I lay me down to sleep,
    The queen-size bed is soft and deep.
    I sleep right in the center groove
    My human being can hardly move!

    I've trapped her legs, she's tucked in tight,
    And here is where I pass the night.
    No one disturbs me or dares intrude
    Till morning comes and I want food!

    I sneak up slowly and it begins
    My nibbles on my human's chin.
    She wakes up slowly and smiles and shouts,
    "You darling beast! Just cut it out!"
    But morning's here and it's time to play
    I always seem to get my way.

    So thank you, Lord, for giving me
    This human person that I see
    The one who hugs and holds me tight
    and shares her bed with me at night!

    livin - That is beautiful. And it applies well to some of our kitties too.

    Thanks, Shay and lopevian!

    gabriel - If I recall, you claimed a paw way back when. No one else jumped in so I guess they're all yours.

    Little Teddy gets more adorable every day lei.
    The boys are currently playing tag up and down the steps, through my office and into the bedroom over and under the bed then back down the steps. Over and over again. I hope they're done by bedtime or they're getting shut out.

    Yes indeed. It is quite amazing how much room a 10lb cat can take up on the bed when they're in their sleeping mode.


    My pooch loves to come and sleep with us in the morning. (she weighs 160lbs. so she is quite the snuggle bunny) Anyway, you know that lazy feeling when you know you can sleep in and try to get up, only to fall back asleep? Well that was me this morning. Except somehow she ended up BETWEEN my legs. I figure we must have slept like that for a good hour. When I tried to walk I felt like I'd been riding a horse!

    Thanks, Unk!

    I am all too (but happily) familiar with kitty tag as well as the stay-in-funny-position-till-kitty-moves game.

    Theodorable is just that! I love his little pink paws too!

    That poem is hilarious. Henry insists on sleeping under the covers and he stretches his long self out diagonally. He then growls sleepily when we try to move him. He weighs about 20 pounds but that's more like 120 when he is asleep and totally limp.

    Today was bath day. As usual, both boys hid when they heard the water running in the upstairs tub. Simon always hides in the same place Henry is harder to locate. Today, I found him wedged behind a bookshelf. His tail was sticking out and that's what gave away his location. Both boys are clean and much more fragrant now.

    Oh I love these stories!
    livin4reality - Whoa, and I thought I had problems with a 16 pound cat taking up the bed.

    doxie - Henry was probably thinking to himself - "If I stand REAL still, no one will find me"

    Well, did you have to shut out the NASCAR kitties?
