For the past few weeks,
I haven’t been sleeping as well as I should.
I think I’ve discovered the reason for my insomnia.
My name is Tsunami and I am a bed hog!
I like to stretch out across the bed at night
Even if it means a paw in your face!
I like to snuggle against you while you sleep
Even if I heat you up like a furnace!
I love to dive under the covers with you
Then pull them off when you get cozy!
The other night, I got up because
I was tossing and turning as
Tsunami took up more and more of my space.
Three hours later I returned and
Tsunami was still in bed!
I used to be flattered when the cats curled up with me.
Now I’m beginning to see the truth in
This quote from Jules Champfleury:
When dogs leap onto your bed,
It’s because they adore being with you.
When cats leap onto your bed,
It’s because they adore your bed.
Have a fabulous time at this week’s party
(And I hope you got a good night’s sleep!)

Thanks for once again hosting a great hop.
Thanks Wayne – you too! 🙂
Tsunami looks very elegant today 🙂
Have a purrrfect week 🙂
You too Steve! 🙂
Such a fun little poem about cats & dogs in the bed! Being awakened in the middle of the night is not funny, no matter if it’s your spouse that snors, your child that is having a nightmare, or your cat that is stretching … I hope you sleep better tonight 🙂 !
Tsunami is so cute.
Thanks for hosting and have a great week.
It is a nice read. I did have a pet cat back home but that was a long time ago. I do miss her actually when I read your post 🙂 Hopping by from Twitter ‘LuckyMomofKK’. I have ‘liked’ you in facebook too. Feel free to visit my blog too 🙂 Cheers!
Always happy to see a Twitter friend! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
Well, really now! You’d think humans had the right to sleep in their beds! Come on now!
Thanks again for Wordless Wednesday! Funny about the cat. We used to sleep with a huge dog until I kept getting ticks on me. Now she sleeps on the floor on a couple of big blankets. Take care, Linda
Ticks – ugh! Thank goodness mine are indoor cats!
So nice kitty, lovely coat with fine gray colors.
Good Tuesday from Marit.
Thanks for hosting, Tsunami is adorable!
The very reason the dogs are not allowed to sleep on my bed. I would be so grumpy having to fight for my space lol.
LOL. Funny quote, and love his beautiful fur.
I am a huge insomniac – I actually missed work yesterday because of it. Yes sometimes my insomnia is attributed to my dogs making too much noise or jumping on the bed. Enjoyed your post.
So true! Our kitty (who has since passed on at the ripe age of 21) use to crawl into bed and sleep on my legs. She was so old and cranky that I didn’t want to move and disturb the poor girl.
Legend likes to sleep on my legs (he doesn’t take well to hints either!)
Whoa, all the fur…how pretty.
Tsunami looks very rested 😉 Same thing happens over here at my house.
That is so true and so funny! Thankfully, we keep shoving our daughter’s kitten off our bed, so that she knows she is not welcome. She finds other people to bother.
Yay me! I linked up before #50 this week! :O)
Who’s Bed is it anyway? 😀
In the glory days of my youth I used to burrow under the covers with Daddy Kiril, and lay for hours in he spot where he bent his knees.
No big deal leaving to make a Litterbox run, and then returning to be let back in once or twice.
I also loved the sunspot on the bed during the day, or burrowing undecover on cold days.
Now, as I approach my dottage, the only change in these routines is that at night, I only occasionally check in undercover, and then only for a few minutes next to Daddy’s chest, and nothing more.
Miss Elvira, for some reason, prefers the space under the bed for naps and snoozes, and rarely visits the top of the bed at all.
My brother Legend of me also likes the bed and gets VERY jealous of me when I am in it.
Sometimes he tries to chase me out.
The other day he “left an act of defiance” outside of his litterbox to show his displeasure!
No jealousy, here, I’m willing to share. 😀
You are a sweet, sweet kitty!
A bed hog sounds familiar! :o) x
lol What a cute story! My Charlie is the one out of 6 who won’t settle for the foot of the bed. He nestles right next to my ear and “purrs his brains out” in the middle of the night! Until I read your quote, I thought it was ‘cuz he loved me so much! Guess that behavior is cat talk for “hey, either move over or get up. I want more pillow!”
I’m said to be the one to burst your bubble Joyce!
I used to have a cat who always slept and curled right on my pillow, above me head.
I thought is was SO sweet – he loved me SO much –
but every morning, I discovered that he had somehow kicked me OFF of the pillow during the night –
and he wa ON the pillow stretched out or curled nicely in a cozy kitty ball!
Tsunami looks elegant. Thanks for hosting and Happy WW!
When you wake up with them on your head, that’s when you know you’ve lost the war. Nice post. Thanks for hosting!
To keep our dogs out of bed, we put it on a platform a foot higher. We got tired of waking up with the dogs sleeping right next to us on the pillow.
I hope you get some well deserved sleep.
Aww hope you get some good rest soon!

Our cat, Luna, is pictured in our wordless wednesday post. We love our cats.
Love that Luna shot!
We never have fewer than five of our eight in bed with us and they all like to sleep horizontally except Misty May, who is the cat on my head, and sleeps on my pillow. Purrs and hugs.
My cat loves to sleep on my feet. Keeps them warm in the winter! 😉
A bed hog?! Really?! That cute face?! 😉
I know just what you mean! My bed hog is a 70 pound dog!
We have a dog hog in our bed.
Oh no!! My two cats do the same darn thing to me…along with my two kids. Oh, the nights I’ve had! lol. I turn the heat off at night, so right now I’m okay with everyone keeping me warm…:-)
Here is my WW Post.
Silly cats! They just allow us to live in their house. lol!
Love it! My kitty climbs under the covers and sticks his head out under my chin. If I roll over, he switches sides..he hates if I have my back to him, lol!
Sarah, my cats do this too!
One of Tsunami’s nick names is “Hip Hop”! I call him this because he is like a bunny.
If he is on one side of the bed facing you – and you roll over – he will “hip hop” over you to get to the other side!
He will also “hip hop” over you until he finds just the right spot to get cozy!
Keep in mind, this cat weights more than 20 pounds.
Having a huge beast “hip hop” over your head at night can be QUITE unsettling!
Once again, thanks for hosting this !
Oh my, I know what that’s like. Simba always likes to sleep half on my head, half on the pillow. Sammy likes to sleep either on me somewhere or down by my feet and Pearl, she curls up next to me. You’d never know I had a queen size bed! lol I agree, they do cause insomnia!
Reason #629000 why I don’t have a cat LOL
Yikes! Surely you can’t have THAT many reasons!
Aw, Tsunami just wants to keep you warm. *g*
Well you’re just like my little dog and my hubby and Rascal if we let him in at night. Rascal, a cat much like you is the worst offender!
Thanks for hosting. saw your badge and headed right over. I need to make one for myself too. I had a page added to exchange badges and I definitely want all of yours. Please drop over and grab some free link love at my place too.
I was out hunting today and got a pretty good shot in I think. I hope you get some sleep. I haven’t been able to get a good night’s sleep in weeks!
Thanks for hosting!
Love that quote! So true!
Tsunami is always adorable!!!
Tsunami looks awfully comfortable! 🙂
Tsunami is the KING of comfort! He does not move for ANYONE!
He looks so comfortable.
Oh dear! That’s quite a dilemma! x
hehehehhe 🙂 So true!!! Tsunami is absolutely gorgeous 🙂
