I’m Trying To Sleep

You know it’s not often when I agree with the kitties that live here.  They were here before me and still seem to harbor resentment about my arrival, often smacking me in the woozle for no reason.

But this time we are on the same side.  While trying to sleep every night my mom person continually gets in the way.  Moe likes to sleep on the outside of the bed & I like to sleep in the middle.

The problem is my mom person’s legs & feet are limiting our space!

This photo is not very good, because I had to force my mom person to take it with her cell phone.  The things sticking up between Moe & I are my mom person’s legs.

All night long she is trying to move in the bed disturbing Moe’s & more importantly my sleep.  Then my mom person has the nerve to complain that we “are in the way”, and “she can’t move all night.”

This happens every night, causing me to lose sleep and require extra naps during the day, which keeps me from patrolling my yard properly.

Any suggestions on how to get my mom person to take up less of the bed are welcomed!

  1. MOL OSKAR It must be very hard to sleep with Cloe’s high beams and the Mom moving all over creation. I wish I had an answer. All I hear is Madi don’t sleep between my legs I cannot turn over you weigh a ton….yada yada yada!!
    My reply is if you would be still, find a good position and not move we’d all be happy.

  2. Well I get in the bed first. That way I pick the spot I want and that is that. But I have to say my MOM is very good at letting me have whatever room I want and she is all to happy to take what is left.

  3. Don’t laugh, but when I only had a twin bed and my dog Shadow – I’d let her take the bed. I slept on the floor. I know, I know. I broke every rule in the book. But it was just easier than fighting with her for space! Thankfully, I have a California King now and it isn’t an issue with Blueberry.

    So, to answer your question – shove your human off the bed. 🙂

  4. OK, Oskar, Bites Here. Number one get on the bed FIRST lay down and make noises when everyone else gets in. Number two, make sure you have more then you need. Number three, if Mom moves away, quickly move with her, MMORE ROOM to argue with. Four, if you find your space is being invaded lay your head on a leg, then she will move it away, cause it went to sleep.
    Hope that helps.

  5. Lol your mom sounds like me! Except I don’t share the bed with any cats. Just a 55 lb dog and a 10 month old baby. I’m sure Shiner would say the same things about my legs being in the way too. Although I think she does kind of like them there to sleep on top of.

  6. Maybe it is time for Mom to get her own bed instead of hogging all the space in yours:)

  7. OK, sorry to say it but if your mom person is going to insist on being selfish and hogging the bed then she must buy a bigger bed!

  8. Hi Oskar

    We have exactly the same problem – especially since Trixie’s been big enough to be picked up and brought into bed. With one puppy on each side, and Trixie liking to sleep as close to our human as possible (preferably on her head or across her throat), all we hear are complaints about not being able to move, or being too hot, or dreaming about being choked to death. Humans are such complainers!

    Have you considered being a bit firm with your Mom and insisting that she sleep on the floor? It’ll be difficult at first, but you do need your sleep, and she’ll be happier in the long run once she understands her place in the household order (the kitties, then you, then her).

    We haven’t needed to take such drastic measures yet, but we’re keeping it in mind as an option – particularly if we get more complaints about her not being able to breath with a puppy sleeping on her face.

    Be strong (but loving)!

  9. We don’t have any suggestions — we think its too dangerous sleeping in the same bed with Mommy — she tosses and turns like crazy!!! We have our own little doggie beds on the floor — so we have to settle with that. Good thing we don’t have any cats at our place!!!

  10. We gave up sleeping in the big bed with HER…SHE’s up and down all night and moving in between. We NEED our beauty sleep.

    I think you should get into bed first and then start snooring real loud. Then kick like you are having a bad dream. Then toss and turn. I think all these things might help.

  12. It could be worse for her, you could sleep on her legs and use the blankie like a hammock. That’s what Scruffy likes to do. Plus you could also be under the covers, that’s what Mr. Fox likes to do. Or the kitty could come right up next to her face and purr incessantly until a sufficient amount of petting has been done even at 3am!
