Caturday Cuddles

Standard

Hi Peepsters! 

Did you know that Caturday is the purrrfect day for cuddling?  Oh come on – I’m SURE you all know that!  Isn’t that one of the things we animals know about best of all?  The FINE ART OF CUDDLE/SNUGGLE ??? 

I’ve been working on my technique for almost 13 years now.  I started out as a little kid (you’ve seen a lot of these photos before so bear with me while I illustrate my point! 😀 ):

Happy Father's Day Pop!

Dad’s lap

And through the years, I’ve discovered that the cuddle spot of the century – for ME anyway – is on my Mom’s lap:

On Mom’s recliner

My Favorite Nap Spot!

On Mom’s legs

Now snuggling might be slightly different…..we can snuggle WITH lots of things including our humans….but you can always snuggle with a nice quilt or blanket too:

Sometimes I wonder what it might be like to have another cat for me to snuggle or cuddle with………I have a couple of other cats as you can see below, but I mean a REAL, LIVE, FURRY, BREATHING, MEOWING cat not one of these:

Yeah he looks like me but is he cuddly like me?

 

Then I realize that if I DID have another real cat as a buddy here in my house I’d have to share Mom’s lap (probably) and my other favorite napping spots (probably) and some of the toys I love so much (probably) – and suddenly it’s not such an awful thing to be by myself in my house.   Still, some of you have lots of brothers, sisters, and other animals living in your house with you and it SOUNDS like you enjoy having a big family………well, I look at it this way – cats have nine lives – right?  So maybe when I come back in my NEXT life, it will be as one of many cats in a home……HEY – ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!!!

Happy Caturday!

Love, Sammy

p.s.  today is the last day for the pumpkin contest – tomorrow voting starts!

    • Hi Mollie! I’m sure you’d love to have a puppy pal to play with but indeed, it would be a BIG CHANGE in the “sharing” department! At least Alfie does cat things and you do dog things now so you have your own “space” but with another dog – well – it would be competition…..however I bet you’d always win!

      Happy Caturday and YES bacon is on the menu! YAY!

    • Hi Cupcake! I’m glad you’re a “snuggle bunny” like I am….I just love feeling warm and secure with my Mom. As I get older I appreciate those moments more and more too…..My Mom must have a bazillion photos of me snuggling – obviously it’s my favorite hobby! 😀

  2. Sammy I think you have the right idea about snuggle cuddling on your Mom’s lap. My favorite shot is of you curled up next to your Mom’s legs. Nice she made room for you there. We are still staring down our pumpkin. Enjoy your Saturday!

    • Hi Miss Pix – Happy Caturday! Mom always makes room for me when I’m on the scene. She’s always trying to get me to hop up on her lap (which works for me since I like being there in the first place….!!). So who’s winning the staring competition around there??? YOU or the PUMPKIN????

      • We ARE going to win! That pumpkin is going to get a face some time today and I am going to zip its picture to you even if it is 1 second to midnight. We have an unexpected trip to CH’s Mom’s today and it has been crazy here all week. Hope Sandy isn’t too rude to you!

        • Hi Miss Pix…..yes we’re hoping Sandy decides to skip town and go somewhere else! Mom has got the pumpkin poll all loaded up with the photos and ready to go so if you get your photo in later, she’s planning on checking one last time this evening – like around 8PM EST for entries then tomorrow the polls will be on my bloggie! Get to carving girl! Hope all’s well with CH’s Mom…..

  3. Being the only child is good, you got the chance to be spoiled but the downside of it is that you cannot put the blame of you mess on anyone.
    Did someone told you today that you are extra cute extra votes Sam?

    • Oh Doggy you’re one sly fox (er…um…I mean dog). I’m afraid I can’t be bribed! I agree with you about being an only kid being a “mixed bag” – – it’s good because I get all the attention but when I’ve been bad there’s only one cat to blame it on…….good thing that I’m NEVER bad right? 😉

    • Thanks Miss Trish….you and your doggies stay safe too – hopefully this storm will NOT be what they say it will be. Wouldn’t be the first time they over-estimated a storm right???

  4. We’re working on being cuddling experts, though we boyz only have 2 years’ experience compared to Allie who has 4. But I (Maxwell) like to cuddle with mom in her chair while she posts and Faraday chooses to cuddle undercover at night behind momma’s knees! It’s cuddle weather here for sure…it FROZE last night! Brrrrrrrr

    • It’s a good thing humans make such excellent heating pads, don’t you think? Cuddle weather truly is upon us too and I’m sort of following my Mom around the house waiting for her to “land” and then I immediately hop up to get a bit of heat!

      Stay cozy……..

  5. Oh Sammy! You are a sweet cuddle bug. I think being an only child has it’s perks, but having furblings has it’s good points. I have the best of both worlds. I share my home with the boys and my doggie sister, but I DO NOT share my person. The other furbabies have to get their cuddles with one of the other humans. I’ve got mine and I’m keeping her.

    • I had a feeling you were a cuddily girl. I hate to be disturbed when I’m napping too…..I’ve been known to extend a claw or two and since I’ve got a couple of EXTRA claws, my Mom likes to avoid the possiblities!! I hope you get Allred’s head wound taken care of Nursie Nellie – you look spectacular in your outfit! 😀

  7. Sammy, I’m afraid NONE of us like cuddling around here, not with humans, and not much with each other! We complain when my human tries. But then, she is not so touchy-feely either most of the time.

    • Well I “get” that…..sometimes we all just need a little SPACE…..I have to admit that once in a while I go off to my basement hidey hole and stay out of sight – Mom usually comes to seek me out after a while and I’ll snap out of my funk and follow her back upstairs. But for the most park – I’m a snuggler!

  8. You sure have had a lot of practice, Sammy. You’d be a great teacher for our new resident in SP#1. His name is Bailey, and he is very, very scared of everyone right now. He looks like he needs LOTS of big cuddles, but for the moment, he doesn’t want anyone to come near him. I’ll be posting a picture of his sweet self very soon. In the meantime, maybe you could telepathically send him some Sammy hugs. That might be the only way he’ll accept any snuggles for now. And I send you a BIG hug, because I just adore you!

    • Hi Miss Melanie! So Bailey’s the new guy in town huh? Well, I’ll send him happy, trusting vibes starting RIGHT NOW….I bet once he settles in and realizes he’s safe he’ll relax – he’ll be posing for your camera before you know it! Thanks for adoring me – that makes me warm all over….I adore you too!!

        • Hi from me AND my Mommy! Miss Dianna and her family are right on the water – we’re inland – but this storm is so HUGE, everybody in the path is going to get some impact. Miss Dianna will have flooding to worry about….we live on a hill so flooding isn’t a biggie but the 70mph wind that’s coming later IS a biggie since we’re surrounded by HUGE old trees. We’ll get a lot of rain – it’s raining now but not that much…..however, everybody is prepared so THAT’s good – not like it was when we had a tornado SNEAK UP ON US a few years ago! Thanks for your prayers….we’ll ALL need them I think!

  9. What you need is a really, really big cat that cannot go on laps but can be cuddled up to. Rather like me and Raffles, he’s too big for laps, but good for cuddles 🙂

  10. Oh Sammy I used to be the only princess but then my mama and papa, M and C (well, M) kept bringing in more cats! Sometimes I come to M’s room for a cuddle but there’s already Foxy, and now Nina on her lap, so I will just go to the other bed and cuddle myself and then M will come to me with Nina clinging to her and give me a hug….Sometimes I cuddle Nina too cos sometimes she looks sad and needs a cuddle (most of the time because she forces her way to cuddle me)…being the only princess was awesome but I just cant remember how it feels anymore!

    • Oh Poor Coco! Well, I do think it’s sweet that M brings little homeless or sad kitties there to be with you for a while before they find another home, but I’m sure it’s tough sharing cuddles and space with the “intruders” !! Little Nina is very tiny yet so I think it’s great that you are taking care of her and trying to share with her. One of these days I bet you’ll be the only Princess in town again!

  11. That was such a lovely post, Sammy!
    I am going to tell you a secret, please don’t tell my human or Kitshka, but sometimes, I miss the time when it was just my human and me. Other times I like to be able to play with Kithska. But I like my quality time with my human alone =^.^=
