Aby-a-Day – 26 November 2020: Sausage party (Thursday Things)

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.

sausagefest_5226

I joked that there was a sausage party going on in our bedroom.

sausagefest_5222

Then Alfred started to…move.

sausagefest_5220

Freddy, I don’t need to see any sausages..!

sausagefest_5219

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?

Aby-a-Day – 12 November 2020: Angel’s peets (Thursday Things)

Well, my laptop is still limping along…the replacement is meant to arrive tomorrow.

angelbed_5097

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.

angelbed_5101

Anyway, this was how Angel was sleeping in her bed last night.

angelbed_5100

I thought it was cute…and a little awkward.

angelbed_5099

So please accempt this peet offering.

Aby-a-Day – 9 November 2020: Bed thief (Hipstamatic Monday)

The brown dome bed is Angel’s. That’s a fairly well-respected fact in our house.

hipstazakbed2

Except for Izaak. Singapuras have zero boundaries.

hipstazakbed3

Well, what have you got to say for yourself, young man?

hipstazakbed4

Oh. All righty, then. As you were.

Aby-a-Day – 26 Oktober 2020: Undercovers Dash (Hipstamatic Monday)

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.

hipstadashcovers2

Dash is all of us waking up…especially on Monday morning! His face is a mood.

hipstadashcovers3

A waking-up blep…

hipstadashcovers4

…and Dash is ready to start his day.

Aby-a-Day – 25 September 2020: Licking leads to biting (Friday Flashback)

Facebook has been reminding me a lot about Alfred and Logan lately. This one came up today.

logannap_0188

Look at little Logan, sleeping peacefully on the IKEA cat bed.

loganfreddy_0191

Suddenly, a wild Freddy appears!

loganfreddy_0194

Freddy uses licking.

loganfreddy_0195

It’s super effective!

loganfreddy_0196

Although, to his credit, Logan did get a pretty good chomp in on Freddy’s ear.

loganfreddy_0198

I also made a little video of the encounter; click on the image to watch it on Flickr.

Aby-a-Day – 20 September 2020: More Singa Sharing (Cinema Singapura Sunday)

So, remember what I said about Singapuras sharing, and the other cats just letting them get away with it?

zakfreddybedbattle16.42.30

It doesn’t always go down that way.

zakfreddybedbattle16.43.07

You know that IKEA cat bed we have? Well, Alfred was sleeping on it.

zakfreddybedbattle16.43.35

And Izaak wanted to be sleeping on it.

zakfreddybedbattle16.44.26

So, he pulled his usual “Well, I’ll cuddle on in here trick.”

zakfreddybedbattle16.44.34

Freddy wasn’t having it.

zakfreddybedbattle16.44.43

He showed Zak the meaning of the word “smackdown.”

zakfreddybedbattle16.44.44

At first, I thought Zak was going to give up.

zakfreddybedbattle16.45.12

Never underestimate the determination of a Singapura.

zakfreddybedbattle16.46.01

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.

Aby-a-Day – 19 September 2020: Singas love to share! (Singapura Saturday)

As I have said before, Singapuras are big fans of sharing…whether or not you want to share with them.

zakangelbed_E4867

This happened the other day. That this is Angel’s bed is well established. But Izaak thought she needed company.

zakangelbed_E4868

So he wedged himself into her bed.

zakangelbed_E4873

Zak tried to appease Angel with some licks to her head.

zakangelbed_E4874

zakangelbed_E4875

I am not sure how successful that actually was, but Angel didn’t kick Zak out of her bed.

Aby-a-Day – 27 August 2020: Angel is becoming a joiner! (Thursday Things

Sometimes, the cats like to nap on our bed during the day. The two main bed nappers are Izaak and Alfred…

angelbed_4336

…But lately, Angel has also been napping on our bed.

angelbed_4579

She seems to prefer being up by our pillows, whereas the boys like to sleep in the middle of the bed.

angelbed_4580

It’s really cute.

angelbed_4582

Sometimes, she kind of buries herself under the comforter.

angelbed_4583

It’s okay, Angel…go ahead and go to sleep.

Aby-a-Day – 6 Augusti 2020: The One With the Nap Partners (Thursday Things)

It’s always interesting to me to see how the cats pair up when they takes naps.

roryfreddynap_060253

Sometimes, it’s Lorelai and Alfred.

zakdashbed_2531

Sometimes, it’s Izaak and Dashiell.

zakfreddybed_2893

And sometimes its Freddy and Zak.

zakfreddybed_2890

What? Sometimes, you’re on the pillow…and sometimes, you are the pillow.

Aby-a-Day – 18 Maj 2020: Pink is for boys, too! (Hipstamatic Monday)

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.

hipstadashzak6455

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.

hipstadashzak6922

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.

hipstadashzak1999

Who says boys can’t rock the pink?

Aby-a-Day – 17 Maj 2020: An Angel watching over me (Swedish Sunday)

I fall asleep watching television pretty much every night. I never see the end of movies we watch.

angelcoconap_2545

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.

Aby-a-Day – 16 Maj 2020: Singas ALWAYS share…whether you want to or not… (Singapura Saturday)

When Izaak decides he wants to nap somewhere…

zakdashbed_2527

…He naps there.

zakdashbed_2535

Regardless of whether or not someone else is already napping there.

zakdashbed_2533

There’s this one old cat tree is especially popular for some reason.

zakdashbed_2530

Dashiell has taken a liking to sleeping in the cat bed in that tree.

zakdashbed2

And because Dash wants to sleep there…so does Zak.

zakdashbed5

zakdashbed4

And when Izaak wants something…he usually gets it.

zakdashbed1<

Whether you want it or not…if a Singapura wants to cuddle with you, you CUDDLE!

Aby-a-Day – 20 April 2020: Dash is a smol bol (Hipstamatic Monday)

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, one of Dashiell’s favourite afternoon napping spots is at the end of the sofa.

hipstadashbol2

He’s a big, gangly yearling, but he manages to get his legs rolled up in a tight ball.

hipstadashbol3

…And, the camera woke him up. Sorry, Dash!

Aby-a-Day – 16 April 2020: The blanket boys (Thursday Things)

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.

zakbed_1264

Zak generally naps on top of the covers (he prefers to sleep under the covers when humans are there.

dashbed_1265

Dash likes to sleep under the comforters, which is easy since we have the Scandinavian double duvet system.

dashbed_1267

And Dash is so damn cute when he comes out from underneath.

dashbed_1269

I mean, just look!

jakebedfortIMG_3132

What’s funny is, Jacoby used to like to sleep under the covers like that, too. It’s kind of nice.

Aby-a-Day – 13 April 2020: Nap distribution (Hipstamatic Monday)

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.

hipstafreddyzakdash3414

Alfred, Izaak and Dashiell were all napping in a heap at the far end.

hipstafreddyzakdash9331

It was pretty adorable.

hipstafreddyzakdash7537

I mean, look at them1

hipstafreddyzakdash8171

hipstafreddyzakdash0212

Totally a band of brothers.

hipstarory9253

Meanwhile, Lorelai was napping on the right side of the sofa.

hipstarory5942

Pretty much as far away as she could get from the boys whilst still being on the sofa.

hipstarory8128

hipstarory7959

But she was happy on her “no boys allowed” side of the couch.

hipstarory6354
Nice teeth, Rory!

Aby-a-Day – 30 Mars 2020: Shelter in place (Hipstamatic Monday)

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.

hispstafreddyzak5754

This was what Izaak and Alfred were doing before I got up to take photos.

hipstarory0180

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!

hipstarory0152

And this one isn’t bad either.

hipstadash4418

Here’s Dashiell on Pyret’s chair.

hipstadash1901

And here’s Dash channeling 1967.

hipsta-angel0043

One of Angel’s napping spots is on a dining table chair. That’s where I found her today.

hipsta-angel7103

And, as napping places go, the kitchen tables are a pretty good place to nap.
