Bed Wars, Round I

Oui Oui and The Girl as kittens.

As a young kitty, I loved scratching away while I was on my back.  Of course, the bed was the object of my scratching!  The mom would come home from work to find huge amounts of stuffing stretched across the floor.  Soon we kitties could climb into the netting and sleep there.  It was like a large kitty hammock.  So snuggly and comfy!  Those were really the days!

Walking the bed as a kitten.

Eventually I dug holes all the way through to the top of the mattress.  In no time there were huge springs sticking out of the top.  While this didn't bother us kitties much, well in fact, not at all, the mom had to resort to sleeping across the lower part of the bed while her legs pointed up to the headboard.

One day, some men took the old beds (I had been working on The Girl's bed too) and brought new ones.  I set to work right away!

But, I couldn't believe what the mom did!  She came home with large sheets of wood, and she put them under the box springs and mattresses!   In vain did I roll on my back and scratch at the wood.  I tried!   I tried really hard!  Even in the middle of the night, waking the mom with the sound of my claws on wood.

This is how I walk across the bed.

Sadly, my sharp nails were no match for the wood and finally I gave up.


These days, I have my beloved cardboard, but no beds to scratch.

Ok, I give the first round of The Bed Wars to the mom.  That's ok.  We kitties own the night, and there are daily breakfasts to wake up for.  You know we aren't going to give in THAT easily!

Today we are sponsoring an Event called Bed Wars at The Tabby Cat Club.  If you are interested in more bed time antics, stop on by, visit and maybe even say hi.

I LOVED this. Mommy said Robin our Cat Matriarch did that too on the boys beds! She tried on Mommy's bed too but mommy did what yours did!

We haven't really scratched at the mattress, but Brulee is scratching at one corner of the carper and pulling it up.

I think you were GYPPED, Oui Oui! We did the same thing with the bed that was here when I moved in, except we never did get past the box springs. So far, we haven't been that interested in the latest bed, which is a couple of years old.

Oh we know how to ruin a bed too. We have both beds here in shambles. But we are still able to sleep on them. Hope all of you have a great day.

We used to pick at the old one and take some stuffing out, but never went all the way through, that sure is talent.

You are persistent, Oui Oui! I had a kitty a long time ago that liked to move himself along under the bed by lying on his back and using his claws in the mattress but he never took it as far as you. I think that shows that girls like to get the job done. The picture of you and The Girl as kittens is so precious.
