Toby's Diary

Sharing the bed

I was woken by mum in the night.

"How do you do that?" she asked.


"I went to sleep on my own, all comfy and spread out. I've woken up with you right on the middle of the bed with the feathers from the duvet all in one lump under you and I'm trying to squeeze around you under empty duvet."

"It's a cat thing."


"The feathers love me. They like to be near me"

Josie was watching all this from her vantage point on one of the pillows. She has lately taken to sleeping on one so she can be close to mum but not get rolled on. She suspects mum is jealous. Josie can fit her whole body on one pillow and mum can only manage a head. Mum says she isn't jealous but why does Josie always go for the one closest to the bedside table? It's not like she has to reach out for the lamp/alarm clock etc.

Anyway Josie was quite interested to see how the whole duvet thing would play out. I was very comfy so not minded to move and we have my mum pretty well trained on that kind of thing. Mum sighed and tried to fit herself under the parts of the duvet I had left for her and we all tried to go back to sleep. Sadly mum's wigglings and squigglings got too much for me and I did have to move over in the end. She can be a little thoughtless like that.

This morning is still sunny so I have to go and run outdoors now,

:) I do that too Toby! Mom starts the night with me on a pillow and her on the other side of the bed. Somehow I manage to stretch allllll across the bed and push mom with my legs so she has to balance on the edge of the bed. She thinks a queen-sized bed should be big enough for the both of us, but I disagree! She's just lucky I let her sleep in it at all!

MOL! It's pretty amazing how we can take up so much of the bed!

Mum brought a new bed recently and she upgrade from a double to a queen size bed just so there would be more room for me and it works a treat.

Mum get into bed and then I get in around her. I don't mind this very odd way of doing things as I don't want to hurt mum if she's sore and mum also go an electric blanket to use of the really cold nights and there's been lots of them lately.

It''s also on of the advantages of being an only furchild.

Oh, your feathers sound so snuggly and comfy. Our Mietzi likes to sleep on top of Mom's legs. But Mietzi gets up in the middle of the night. I don't always sleep in the bed, only if I get too cold.
