Welcome to Our Boudoir

Today, Slash and I will tell you all about our 'bedroom' history.

The first bed we ever had was Mommy's bed.

We started out sleeping beside her tummy,
then on her legs and finally,
we graduated to sleeping on top of her head.

That sleeping-on-the-head routine coincided nicely
with Mommy's decision to get us our own bed.

And she did!

But, while it was cosy at first, it steadily became more cramped.

So we were very grateful when one of Mommy's friends
got us a second bed last Christmas.

We can now sleep comfily
with lots of room to stretch and spread our limbs.

Slash, being a creature of habit,
preferred the first bed over the second for a long time.

That's because he is the type of kitty who
delights in the familiar and hisses at the new.

Slash enjoys the deep 'bucket' of the first bed.

He likes pressing his cheek against its soft interior.

And he likes the added security of having a 'roof' over his head.

It makes him feel like a King in a very safe castle.

I, on the other hand...

... Took to the second bed right away.

It is so thick and soft and very very inviting.

The very first time I laid down in it,
I was lost in its magic!

So I was happy to have it exclusively to myself.

Over time, Slash found out that
he actually quite approved of the second bed.

So now we take turns.

I will sometimes relax in the first bed.

While he chills out in the second.

Mommy arranged for both beds to be side-by-side
which works out very well for us.

Firstly, we really enjoy snoozing together.

And secondly, I've grown so used to Slash's snoring...

... That hearing it now is very comforting.

And best of all,
sleeping so close side-by-side...

... Allows us to exchange goodnight kisses.

We hope you have enjoyed this introduction to our beds.

We're going to drift off to slumberland now.
Maybe we'll see you there!

Oh, those photos are just wonderful! We love your two beds...side by side...We're impressed you use them too, because even though we have a variety of beds and comfy mats, we seldom use them! (And Derry likes to lie on the mom's head at night too, but for some reason she always moves his flabby tummy off her face.)

We loved reading (and seeing) about your 2 new beds! We still prefer to sleep on The Big Thing when he is in the big bed. We have lots of other sleepin places for daytime (pillows on chairs and folded blankets on dressers. The only place we DONT sleep is the one cat bed The Big Thing ever bought... MOL!

ABBY said...

We loved reading about your boudoir! Mom has purchased beds and beds and more beds for us. At first we love them, but as time passes we lose interest. I still sleep on top of Mom and Boo sleeps right next to her.
It works well for us, not so much for Mom.

Oh my goodness, those photos are just darling! I especially love Bronzy's spotted belly. Such cuteness.

Melly likes to make herself as annoying as possible at night, so I've considered getting her a bed of her own. Somehow, I think she'd ignore it just to be contrary. Sigh.

The goodnight kiss turned Mommy into a puddle of goo...how SWEET!

Deven said...

OMG..your lovely cats are such sweeties. I love these photos and the story that goes with them. Your blog is very enjoyable and I really love that you put in lots of pictures. Thank you.

Oh myyyyy!! I didn't just "enjoy" the introduction to your beds....I LOVED it! The photos were so precious and captivating!

Slash is a stunner and you my friend are no slouch either!

The kisses had me melting...I love how you are both so content to sleep next to each other.

This was one of the cutest things ever!

We have lots of beds, but we sleep in different spots. Ducky likes to sleep on mum's bed.

The Island Cats said...

Those are a couple of nice beds you guys have. And it's nice that you share them. We have a few beds too...but we still like to sleep on mom's bed and the chairs and couch and stuff like that.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Those are nice beds you have! Personally though I don't think any place is better than on the woman.

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Slash & Bronzy,
All of us bunk on Mama's bed. And on Dad or in the crook of his armpit. Nice..... purrr....meow!

That sequence of pictures and the narrative was purrfect. We love how you swap beds for a change. We just loved the night-night kissy and it had our mum squeeing.

Aziraphale definitely prefers to sleep on my bed. He's very well behaved, though: he absolutely adores my dressing gown, so I make a little "nest" out of it next to my pillow. I feed him a little bit of dry food before I turn my light out (though I usually watch him for a bit - he crunches his food viciously, just like Slash! nose wrinkles and all!). He then hops up onto my bed, walks across me, starts "kneading" the dressing gown, purring furiously. If he isn't in my room when I go to bed, I usually wake up to find him sleeping on the bottom corner of the bed - such a good boy!!

Mind you, there are times such as yesterday morning, where I'll wake up at 6 (every day without fail, I wake at 6; and it's not always because Aziraphale is clawing me gently to tell me it's breakfast time), then fall asleep and wake when my alarm goes off and find him in an odd position ... I woke up, lying on my belly, with the cat on my BUTT. UNDER THE COVERS.

Dopey boy.

Brian said...

I've really got to say that both of you look so very comfy, I just don't know how you managed to stay awake long enough to tell us about your beds! Happy Snoozing!!!

Marg said...

Those are some really good pictures of your bed story. We love it. You two sure do get along well and the good night kisses is the best. What a great post. Take care.

You two are so sweet to share and cuddle! We have lots of beds (there are lots of us), but usually Midnight wants to sleep wherever somebody else already is, so she gives the Death Glare and a couple pokes with her paw and evicts whomever is in her way (usually Riley).

Catsparella said...

That was a purrfect introduction, Bronzy! You look so cozy and happy in those pics! p.s. I really like your beds, and I love the bedding on your Mom's bed too!

Au and Target said...

Double nap fest sounds and looks great! Love that furry blankie inside your 2nd bed.

Cloon said...

Bronzy, theese one was a good one! Thanks for having us in your boudoir and giving us a tutorial on your beds! They both look excellent!
