Blue bear

The battle begins as soon as we both lay down in bed, the battle of us and Miss Blue Bear getting comfortable. This battle unfortunately continues throughout the night and into the morning.

It’s a warming feeling that our lovely cat likes to snuggle with us all night long. I know she snuggles with us, especially this time of the year, because she wants our warmth. She’s trying to stay warm just like us and what better way then to snuggle between the two of us. But, with that said it makes for many sleepless nights.

Kimber becomes dead weight as soon as she lies down, especially after she falls asleep. Once she finds her spot, that’s it, it’s impossible for you to move an inch. So, when you want to roll over, grab the blanket, or move your legs a little, well, think again. It becomes an impossible task, a task that completely wakes you up.

Kimber moves from my side of the bed to Jason’s throughout the night after we were successful in getting our space back.

The best part of all of this is when she strikes in the morning. That loud meow as close into your ear as possible telling you it’s time to wake up. Even if you get her off the bed, she immediately jumps back on with her continuous meow. 

Once you start to sit up, the meow becomes louder and the chase to the bathroom begins. Kimber loves beating you to the bathroom. 

Don’t get me wrong we love our gorgeous, incredibly sweet kitty. I just wish you could actually train cats. Train them to stay in a specific spot on the bed, or heck even sleep in their own bed.

As soon as she’s successful in waking us both, she’s happy and finds a spot on the couch and leaves us alone for a while.

Yes, I don’t know what I would do without this Blue Bear, she has captured both of our hearts. Kimber, oh sweet Kimber, please give us a night of uninterruptible sleep just once 🙂

The talker


I will never grow tired of being greeted at the window and/or door by our kitty companions.

Today when I arrived home from a rather long, hectic day of work, Leo said hello from the window as he saw me get out of the car. As I was pulling groceries out of the back seat of the car it sounded like his meow was coming from right next to me rather than the second floor from a good distance away.

The best part was he continued to say hello as I walked across the parking lot, onto the sidewalk and then up the stairs. The closer I became the fainter his meow.

As I reached for the door, Leo had already jumped down from the window patiently waiting for me to enter our home.

I love how animals make you feel loved.

He instantly put a smile on my face as we continued our conversation into the kitchen. What a great way to be welcomed home.



Cuddle bug

No matter where we are sitting, laying or direction we are walking, there is a little follower talking to us the whole time.

Miss Kimber, our beautiful kitty, is always cuddling close by or laying directly on us once we find a spot to sit down.

Her favorite time of the day occurs in the morning as she patiently waits for us to move or for the alarm to go off. As soon as she knows we are awake the talking begins as she races with us to the bathroom meowing every step of the way.

When we make our way to bed at night she is close behind. As we get comfortable she finds her favorite spot at our side or between our feet at the foot of the bed. As we shift throughout the night, she moves with us cuddling closer than the time before.

Our lives have been enriched by this affectionate cat who always wants to be close by.
