Someone needs to have a talk with my cat about important issues...
like MY FACE IS NOT A PILLOW!!!!!!

I'm almost asleep and something is tickling the insides of my nose and it's freaking CAT WHISKERS. Abbie's new favorite sleeping area, if I'm dumb enough to fall asleep on my back, is right at the top of my chest. And then he puts his head on my head and somehow his damn whiskers are inside my nose and I can barely breathe cause the damn cat is practically covering a portion of my mouth.

I know he's trying to share his love, but I really DON'T want to be found in my apartment dead for 3 days from suffication and a cat meowing because he's hungry and no one has cleaned out his litter box

HELP HELP HELP!!!

3. We could talk it over, but...
...he'd just meow like he understood, and go right back to the bad behavior. He's a cat! :shrug:

4. I solved that one by
sneaking into my bedroom at night and closing the door but Tans caught on to that REAL QUICK

Now I just pick her up off of my bed and pitch her out the door and close it REAL FAST

6. I've had to do the same thing
But I have 3 cats, and they all want to stay. It's a game. If they think I'm getting up to kick them out, they hide under the bed.

7. Men are the same way when you try to tell them something
cept men say "ok, sounds good" instead of meowing!

8. Quit whining!
It could be the OTHER end he has in your face.

Be thankful for small favors.

I have a a 4 month old kitten (Eddie) who wraps and tightly snuggles her body around my neck <cough-choke>.

She's the one on the far right. (Pic was taken the day we found them outside)

13. Yes, one is
Edited on Fri Jan-30-04 10:40 AM by dmr
Elsie, (far left), named after Elsie the Cow because she hogged the goats milk. Elsie has the shortest hair, the sleekest body and is the smartest of the three. She's a non-suffocating snuggler. Eddie is round bellied, probably because she pigs out. The one in the middle (Pumpkin) was adopted out after we caught and fixed her mom to a family in Jersey.

Edit: Mom went to Jersey with Pumpkin.

14. is he still young?
my cat always slept on my pillow (and my head) until he was about 2 years old, then he stopped for some reason. Maybe your cat will grow out of this habit? My cat now sleeps on my feet. One day I will wake up with absolutely no feeling in my legs, but it's nice cozy sleeping.

15. Vet thinks he is about a year old
His gums were in pink perfect condition.

But looking at him, he's damn big for a year old cat

16. Boy cats consider you their territory
When he does that, place him by your side. If he comes back up, take him by the nape of his neck like his mommy would and put him back by your side...my cat Jack does that...works like a charm.
