Sopping Monday

Today mum was awoken by torrential rain, which seemed to subside as she headed out the door.  Once she got down the road though the heavens opened and all the rain soaked her through on the seven minute walk to work.  Luckily she could wear some work scrubs, but when she went to go home her trousers were still soaked, so scrubs had to be worn home.   They are stretched out on the drying rack now trying to get dry for tomorrow.

So mum was pleased that dinner was last nights leftovers, and the relaxing could begin straight away.  She was tired, as sleep still eludes her - for a variety of reasons.  One of the reasons is that now I am a permanent bed buddy.  I climb over her before she goes to sleep, and in the middle of the night she usually awakes to turn off and finds me pinning her into an awkward position on the bed.  Thus the winter tussle to take over the bed begins.  This is the look I give her when she is settling down at night - in my spot.  I believe you might call it a death stare.


  1. My goodness Poppy!x
    When l first saw your photo..I thought it
    was you as a kitty~kitty...! You look so
    young...! HeHe! Bless!x
    If that's a death stare...I'd welcome it! :).

  2. That is quite the stare Poppy! Your mum must be afraid to move when you look at her like that.

  3. Poppy, dear, that is a stare that a king cobra would envy. (However, I do wish we could compare it to Mum's glare when she wakes up and finds you hogging the bed.)

  4. Oh Poppy, weren't those showers this morning really, really heavy. Megs kept leaping and jumping (on me) from under the quilt to staring out the window in disbelief. I think your "major stink eye" achieved more coz I got into town around 9:00am not so wet. Megs just snuggled down and snoozed the day away!

  5. Haha, Poppy! We know about the bed takeover, so the human can't sleep comfortably or properly. Good job on your part, though if you do it too much it just makes them cranky. (Or ours gets cranky, at any rate.)

    Here's to sleep..and to sunnier skies! Have a great week.

    Purrs and peace.

  6. Such a cute cat! Love this picture!

  7. That would keep me from getting some sleep, Poppy.

    Your mum should have an umbrella, just in case.

  8. poppy Q...yur stink eye foto iz EPIC !!!! we loves it ~~~~~~ ♥♥♥

  9. Poor mum bean - getting soaked doesn't sound like much fun to us. We don't feel quite so sorry for her...she needs to share that bed with you and a little discomfort is to be expected. :)

  10. Poppy, I do love your Death stare." My Holly takes over the bed leaving me with little room. Oh cats, we humans put up with our furry ones!
