Wordless Wednesday – The Sofa Hog

Tsunami The Sofa Hog

Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

One of life’s greatest joys for a cat lover
Is to have a cat (or two) by their side.

Did you know that cats also love having their
Human companions by their side?

Whenever we sit down to watch TV,
Our cats clamor for coveted spots
On the sofa – on laps – on chests –
Anywhere to be nearby!

Lately, however, I’m beginning to wonder
If I should reassess the situation.

Perhaps it isn’t my company the cats are craving.
Perhaps it is my warm cozy seat that they want!

You see, every time I leave the sofa,
I return to discover that Tsunami,
The sofa hog, has gleefully stolen my seat!

(This rarely happens to my husband.
Once planted, he rarely budges!)

I’ve also noticed that during these moments,
Tsunami becomes selectively deaf and
Acquires tunnel vision,
Refusing to make eye contact,
As indicated in this shot!

Do you have a sofa hog in your home?
If so, please share your photos and stories with us!

Thanks for joining us for
Wordless Wednesday at Create With Joy.
Have a fabulous time at this week’s party!

    Good morning, thank you for hosting this weeks WW, I have a couch hog to, except he climbs on top of me wanting under the covers and wont give up until hes there. Have a great day! Karren

    He is just keeping your seat warm for when you return. The problem is, it’s just to comfortable to give up once you get back.


  3. Loy says:

    Yes, I have a sofa hog at my house…actually two! I make them move, but my hubby doesn’t. He’s such a kitty pushover! LOL Thanks for hosting!

  4. Antonette says:

    That’s so funny! My W.W. has photos of Amanda with the kittens resting/sleeping together in the family room. And, Prince follows me around and jumps up on high surfaces that bring him almost eye level when he wants to be petted. We love our two kittens!

  8. Kristi says:

    Despite being couch hog, such a beautiful, regal cat!

  9. Sounds a lot like my daughter actually 🙂

      Tsunami likes to hang out more than watch but Legend – he likes watching all the action flicks!
      Interestingly enough, neither cat is into animal shows (they don’t need any more competition!)

      However, I have had previous cats who LOVED animal shows – one I used to leave the tv on for him at times!

    Thanks for sharing on Monday Show & Tell…I love your blog and visit it often!

    I always look forward to seeing your beautiful cat photos!!! I am a huge cat lover and have cats myself, so I can completely relate to the sofa hog…..or the chair hog…or the bed hog…heheh

    Tsunami clearly loves that cozy sofa! Thanks for hosting and Happy WW!

    Ha ha. My kids win the award of being sofa hogs at our house.

  17. Kris @ Beyond the Whiskers

    I’d say a little of each. They love a warm spot and if the warm spot comes with hand to pet them, all the better. Storm (my black and white tabby) will paw at my arm if I don’t give her enough attention while she is curled up in my lap. 😉

    What a cute kitty. Reminds me of one I had in grade school.

    Ha ha…nobody can hog a sofa like a cat can! We call our cats the seat stealers…they wait until we get up and then instantly steal our seats. 🙂

    Tsunami has such beautiful fur!

  21. Gorgeous cat! Thanks for the great post & for hosting & God bless!

  22. ~ linda says:

    This “sofa hog” looks like a Maine Coon to me! I had one that was more tortoise shell but had the same look with the long fur especially around her chest. Anyway, gotta love ’em! Caring through Christ, ~ linda

  23. Every time Mom or Dad get up from their seats at the kitchen counter one of us grabs the warm seat. They don’t even have to walk away, just stand up. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

  24. Smart kitty claiming his spot!

    Hahaha! Oh my, he is such a doll. I want to hug him! Ashley and Aurora each make claim to the arm of the chair in the living room and Banjo (our dog) hates it so he runs over and thr three of them clamor around me. I am the much loved Grand Bone in the house…the giver of food and many pets so they worship me! lol. But Aurora…she claims my morning quiet time by sitting on my Bible etc. and Ashley claims my belly at night! All’s fair in love and attention seeking!

  26. Rosey says:

    Cutest sofa hog ever. 🙂

    My little dachsund is quite the sofa hog, as well — especially when I want to fold clothes! She loves to curl on my lap.

    Happy WW and thanks for hosting!

  28. Lily @Militaryfamof8 says:

    I love seeing Tsunami’s pictures 😉

    Thank you for hosting a WW w/linky, I have mine up as well if you’d like to visit

    Your cat cracks me up! We have dogs but they wait to get on the sofa until we have gone to bed. lol – Sneaky animals.

    Beautiful post. It reminds me of our dear departed Joey, who loved to snuggle up on the sofa. 🙂

    Well, yeah, of course we kitties want your seat – after all, you went to great lengths to warm it up for us, right?

  32. veronica lee says:

    We do have a sofa hog – hubby! He’s a permanent fixture!

  33. May I join you….?

  34. Happy Wednesday! He’s so handsome! I posted Kanga Kitty today ….she’s always ON something and easy to capture, ha ha

  37. Julie @ 70WPM says:

    Yes! I thought it was just us. My cat hops in my spot when I move then when I return and try to move her, she tries to bite me! haha. Thanks for the laugh

    Thanks for hosting the linky! Cats are truly wonderful companions. Yours looks sweet and cuddly. Give her a head scratch for me.

  41. Probably a bit of both, but I wouldn’t give up having the kitties by my side for anything! 🙂

  42. LOL! My kitties do the same thing. They love stealing the warm seats. 🙂

  43. No we don’t have a sofa hog…we have a bed hog from a 12 pound yorkie!! Sigh…
