A couple of weeks ago, our friend Summer posted about her bedtime rituals, and it looked like it would be a fun thing to post about, so here we go.
We don’t really have rituals, per se, but Jacoby always sleeps in bed with us. Sometimes Alfred joins us.
And before Logan became a man, as it were, he would sleep with us, too.
I think he really misses it. He is a great cuddler.
Jake may not always get along with Freddy and Logan, but the bed is his place, and he tolerates them when we’re all in bed. I’ve even caught Jake cuddling with Freddy!
But I think Jake is happiest when he has the bed all to himself. With or without me.
When he has to share, he has to be ON me.
I got this cute little rechargeable nightlight for my bed.
It’s a little round ball of light, USB chargeable, and it has the option of throwing cool or warm light.
The light is really quite nice, and it gives off no heat.
Perfect for use around cats.
One recent evening, Jacoby and I were just hanging out, and I was intrigued by his interaction with the light.
I also thought it would be interesting to see what Hipstamatic would do with the light poses.
It was not a dissapointment. Sometimes the simplest set-ups make the prettiest photos.
This week’s Photo Hunt subject is “Flip.”
It’s starting to get warm in Boston, and my bedroom hasn’t got the greatest air circulation, so I keep my little Vornado Zippi fan running at night while I sleep.
Jacoby sleeps with me most nights, and he thinks the fan is pretty cool.
In fact, he finds it fascinating.
It’s like the best cat toy ever.
He likes to stop the soft cloth blades. They don’t hurt at all.
Although sometimes, it seems they do sting his paws, so he has to stop and lick them.
…he’s right back at it, smacking my fan.
Or biting it. Biting is good, too.
It’s like a game. If he catches it and makes it stop, he wins.
And if he flips it over…? Bonus points! And in case you were wondering…why, yes, does it makes a lot of noise! And he does it a LOT! It’s like his version of playing with the boingy door thing. Siiigghhhh…
When Jacoby was a kitten, he had the whole “sleep cute” thing down.
This was taken on 23 August 2009, when he was just over 4 months old.
Yeah. He’s still got it.
This week’s Photo Hunt subject is “Now.”
This is what’s happening right now.
Yes, you are seeing correctly…Jacoby and Angel are almost sleeping together on the bed!
She’s on the blanket, and he’s under it…
…But still. For them, this is cuddling!
As I posted yesterday, Jacoby loves to cuddle with me. Sometimes, he likes to sleep on me…
…and other times, he’d rather sleep with me. Under the covers.
He usually uses my arm as a pillow. And he often falls asleep so deeply that he stops purring!
