Why We Nap!

There are a lot of pictures of us napping so we think there needs to be a explanation of why we nap so much during the day. Every night, Mommy throws our toys down to the bottom of the stairs.
Laser eyes doesn't stop her from doing this.
We cannot have our toys laying at the bottom of the stairs, look at this mess!
All through the night we have to carry them one by one back up stairs and leave them on the foot of the bed. How's a kitty supposed to sleep with all this work to do?Sometimes for fun, we leave them right where Mommy will step on them when she gets up in the morning. (Hee hee!) She really loves when we carry the ones with bells in them! Trouble is, she hears us coming and knows where we are in the room but by the time she gets up to stop us - we're already downstairs getting the next toy!So that is why we must nap all day!

That is a little bit funny that you carry them all back upstairs. We just nap because we are cats and we can get away with it! hahaha!

Your desire for tidiness only emphasizes your intelligence, very good kitties! You deserve lots of sunny nap spots and ear scratches :)

aw what good cats you are, how tidy. I wish Skitto would learn to do that, lol! Happy Tuesday to you all.

When our mom cleans up she throws all our toys into our "cat cube" and it takes us forever to get them scattered all over the house again. This looks like much more fun! She also buys only soft toys from a cat toy site that rates toys according to "firmness if accidentally stepped upon in the middle of the night" - and that's no fun either :).

Oh, and we nap because it's a lot of work to be this cute all the time! I'm sure Angel and Isabella have the same problem...

A cat's work is never done! We just got an open toybox and Harley spends hours rummaging through it to find just the right toy.

Sniffie likes to take the toys and put them in the food and water bowls! Hmmm....a nap sounds good right now!!

My Cheers does the same thing. But she meows when she brings the toys upstairs. I think she is calling for me to see her prize.

Hee-hee, you are too funny. Things never work that way in our house. Our mom piles them up and we spread them about the house, nice and messy like!

a kitty's work is never done, and is quite tiring - yes, we must nap during the day so we're ready for the hunt at night. You guys have so many pretty toys! That's a lot of trips up the stairs for sure.
By the way, we've given you the Buterfly Award, and you can pick it up at http://blog.ourdoglog.com

You guys are so funny! My mom wears earplugs when she sleeps so I can party all night long and she doesn't know until she sees themess in the morning!

Heh--Allie mae and Zorro like to carry their toys around too--and if Allie Mae can't find any toys to cary she will pull balled up pairs of socks from the closet cubby hole to carry to us!

Lux said...

You kitties are very good - we kind of like our toys strewn all over. We like watching Mom pick them all up every day. ;-)

HEALTH NUT WANNABEE MOM said...

Wow you are neat kitties! My kitties have toys everywhere! So cute playing too!

tahtimbo said...

I had to read this to my wife. We just laughed at what they were doing. I would be tired too, carrying all those toys upstairs. I hear you on the bells. Koko will get in a mood and play with one of his bell toys in the middle of the night:)

you get a lot of exercise. Now, you must be quiet at night, and let your mommy sleep!

Robin said...

Hi,

Play bows,

Hee hee! Sounds just like kitties!

Michelle said...

I'm glad my furkids aren't the only ones who don't pick up their toys!

Well, now that explains it! Same thing happens at our house!
