That little pest of a roommate of mine thinks she is the smart one of the family. I keep telling her I am the boss and she pretends to listen. But then she goes and does just as she wants. She is so annoying.
I have told her that she has two spots where she can sleep in the house. I made this perfectly clear right from the beginning. She has the refrigerator. I don't like it up there. Sometimes I get up there just to show her I can take her bed if I want, and to let her know how kind I am that I let her sleep up there, but why anyone would want to sleep in such a noisy spot is beyond me. The second spot that I let her sleep is in a small cat bed on a chair that is pushed in under our dining room table. Actually it is a pretty neat spot, but I can't squeeze in the bed at all any more, so I let her have my hand-me-down. See what a nice guy I am?
For about the first six months after she invaded my home, she recognized my superiority and slept where I let her. But as she has gotten older, she forgets herself and I find her sleeping in one of the many spots I consider my own.
Actually she manages to sleep right in the very spot where I was thinking of going...all the time. Whether it be on top of the condo in the living room, one of my two favorite beds, or stuck somewhere under a blanket, nice and warm. It's a warm spot and I WANT IT.
If I don't think anyone is watching, I will just nip her foot to make her get up. But often she is sleeping somewhere close to where my humans are and I have to be a little tricky. So I casually go up and start to clean her face. She falls for this every time. She is SO DUMB! She closes her eyes and lifts her head as I give her a lick or two, all the while I'm looking to see if my humans are watching. As soon as I see their attention is elsewhere, I give her a nip and send her packing.
How nice of her to warm the spot for me. :0)
