The other day, I went into the bedroom for something, and I discovered all the boys in a pile on the middle of the bed.
I joked that there was a sausage party going on in our bedroom.
Then Alfred started to…move.
Freddy, I don’t need to see any sausages..!
Completely non-plussed, Freddy carried on with his grooming. I love the expressions on the other two boys’ faces.
Also, can we all just take a moment to admire Freddy’s grabby hands action?
Well, my laptop is still limping along…the replacement is meant to arrive tomorrow.
As a result, I have only been turning it on and using it when absolutely necessary…basically, when I need to use Photoshop and make a post. Yesterday’s post was set up a week ago, so I haven’t turned my laptop on since Tuesday.
Anyway, this was how Angel was sleeping in her bed last night.
I thought it was cute…and a little awkward.
So please accempt this peet offering.
The brown dome bed is Angel’s. That’s a fairly well-respected fact in our house.
Except for Izaak. Singapuras have zero boundaries.
Well, what have you got to say for yourself, young man?
Oh. All righty, then. As you were.
With the cooler weather, Dashiell and Izaak have been sleeping under the duvets on our bed. It’s so cute to see him sleeping under the blankets.
Dash is all of us waking up…especially on Monday morning! His face is a mood.
A waking-up blep…
…and Dash is ready to start his day.
Facebook has been reminding me a lot about Alfred and Logan lately. This one came up today.
Look at little Logan, sleeping peacefully on the IKEA cat bed.
Suddenly, a wild Freddy appears!
Freddy uses licking.
It’s super effective!
Although, to his credit, Logan did get a pretty good chomp in on Freddy’s ear.
I also made a little video of the encounter; click on the image to watch it on Flickr.
So, remember what I said about Singapuras sharing, and the other cats just letting them get away with it?
It doesn’t always go down that way.
You know that IKEA cat bed we have? Well, Alfred was sleeping on it.
And Izaak wanted to be sleeping on it.
So, he pulled his usual “Well, I’ll cuddle on in here trick.”
Freddy wasn’t having it.
He showed Zak the meaning of the word “smackdown.”
At first, I thought Zak was going to give up.
Never underestimate the determination of a Singapura.
After the tussle, Freddy let Zak cuddle in, and they slept together peacefully after that.
Here’s a video of the whole interaction. It’s a bit long, but it’s fun to watch their interaction.
As I have said before, Singapuras are big fans of sharing…whether or not you want to share with them.
This happened the other day. That this is Angel’s bed is well established. But Izaak thought she needed company.
So he wedged himself into her bed.
Zak tried to appease Angel with some licks to her head.
I am not sure how successful that actually was, but Angel didn’t kick Zak out of her bed.
Sometimes, the cats like to nap on our bed during the day. The two main bed nappers are Izaak and Alfred…
…But lately, Angel has also been napping on our bed.
She seems to prefer being up by our pillows, whereas the boys like to sleep in the middle of the bed.
It’s really cute.
Sometimes, she kind of buries herself under the comforter.
It’s okay, Angel…go ahead and go to sleep.
It’s always interesting to me to see how the cats pair up when they takes naps.
Sometimes, it’s Lorelai and Alfred.
Sometimes, it’s Izaak and Dashiell.
And sometimes its Freddy and Zak.
What? Sometimes, you’re on the pillow…and sometimes, you are the pillow.
Dashiell and Izaak eat together in our bedroom. Breakfast, chicken neck snacktime, and dinner, those two always dine together. This is because, for whatever reason, Dash doesn’t try to steal Zak’s food (the way Alfred or Lorelai would), and since Zak only eats raw, he won’t try to eat Dash’s meal.
This is one of the reasons this pair are such fast friends. When the other three cats are done eating, and I open the bedroom up, I often find them cuddling together, sometimes on our bed, and sometimes in this fuzzy pink cat bed we won at a cat show.
It’s pretty girly. We thought it might be good for Rory, but she never sleeps in there. Angel does sometimes, but it’s mainly Zak and Dash who nap in that bed. The bed also has the white blanket that was in Zak’s crate when he came here from Poland, so that may be part of the attraction.
Who says boys can’t rock the pink?
I fall asleep watching television pretty much every night. I never see the end of movies we watch.
I guess Angel decided I needed some company and settled herself on top of the big sofa cushion and joined me in my little nap.
When Izaak decides he wants to nap somewhere…
…He naps there.
Regardless of whether or not someone else is already napping there.
There’s this one old cat tree is especially popular for some reason.
Dashiell has taken a liking to sleeping in the cat bed in that tree.
And because Dash wants to sleep there…so does Zak.
And when Izaak wants something…he usually gets it.
Whether you want it or not…if a Singapura wants to cuddle with you, you CUDDLE!
As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, one of Dashiell’s favourite afternoon napping spots is at the end of the sofa.
He’s a big, gangly yearling, but he manages to get his legs rolled up in a tight ball.
…And, the camera woke him up. Sorry, Dash!
Izaak and Dashiell spend a lot of time in the bedroom, since they eat their meals and chicken necks in there. And after they finish, they snuggle under the comforters.
Zak generally naps on top of the covers (he prefers to sleep under the covers when humans are there.
Dash likes to sleep under the comforters, which is easy since we have the Scandinavian double duvet system.
And Dash is so damn cute when he comes out from underneath.
I mean, just look!
What’s funny is, Jacoby used to like to sleep under the covers like that, too. It’s kind of nice.
Working on various Photoshop projects today, at one point I looked over and noticed that all the boys were piled at one end of the sofa.
Alfred, Izaak and Dashiell were all napping in a heap at the far end.
It was pretty adorable.
I mean, look at them1
Totally a band of brothers.
Meanwhile, Lorelai was napping on the right side of the sofa.
Pretty much as far away as she could get from the boys whilst still being on the sofa.
But she was happy on her “no boys allowed” side of the couch.
Nice teeth, Rory!
In a lot of places (that don’t include Sweden at the moment), people have been told to “shelter in place” to avoid spreading Covid-19. Despite the Swedish government not yet ordering a lockdown, I have been staying inside as much as possible. So I thought I’d show the places the cats have been sheltering in today.
This was what Izaak and Alfred were doing before I got up to take photos.
I love the way this shot of Lorelai! Part of the fun of Hipstamatic is it’s random, like a slot machine. And this photo is one of the jackpots!
And this one isn’t bad either.
Here’s Dashiell on Pyret’s chair.
And here’s Dash channeling 1967.
One of Angel’s napping spots is on a dining table chair. That’s where I found her today.
And, as napping places go, the kitchen tables are a pretty good place to nap.
