A new cat behavior quiz

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
You have a cat or two.

You strip the bed to wash the sheets, get out clean sheets, and put the bottom sheet on. You get ready to put the top sheet on. What happens?

My cat would barf on the clean bottom sheet.

I have to remove my cats from under the bottom sheets.

Sammie gets under the top sheet and burrows back and forth. I actually took a quick video of her doing it a while back!

You can get the bottom sheet on without a cat on the bed????

I wouldn't even get the bottom sheet on with them in the same room. I'd have to physically remove all the cats form the bottom sheet (or use treats to bribe them away) and put them in another room (and close the door) while I continue to make the bed. There is something about bed-making that attracts cats...

the cat crawls out from under the bottom sheet in order to sleep under the top sheet.

1. Flap the sheet, and tuck in one corner.
2. Remove cat from under sheet.
3. Tuck in corner diagonal from first tucked corner.
4. Remove cat from under sheet.
5. Tuck in third corner.
6. Remove cat from under sheet.
7. Tuck in final corner.
8. Untuck final corner, remove cat from under sheet, retuck.
9. Flap top sheet, and lay over bottom.
10. Tuck in the bottom of the sheet, but leave cat under it.
11. Place blanket on top of sheet, leaving cat under both. Poke lump under blanket and sheet, and giggle as the cat tries to figure out what's going on.

Well, ours didn't get under the bottom sheet. But he DID get under the top sheet. The funny thing is, this is the cat that will not normally step on the waterbed, or sleep there, or anything.

When we put the top sheet over him, we did poke at him a little. But then Sterling jumped up on the bed and took over for us.

That is exactly why I put changing the sheets off for as long as I can-with 9 kitties it is almost impossible to change them without holes being torn in them or the biggest game of "where am I", it sometimes takes up to 2 hours to change the sheets.

I fight with Pepper every night when I make the bed... she LOVES to bury herself in the covers

This is easy - Charlie is UNDER the sheets and hiding like a lump. Then its fun time to catch the fingers from the outside till you get to the end of the sheet

haha i just put a wee bit of cat nip on the scratching post and the big cat tree...
that takes care of gina,george and beau.... then its just willow and rumpleteaser....
so i remove teaser from the bed... make a dash for the bottom sheet... remove teaser from the bed again, quikly distract her with a toy...
manage too fit the bed bottom sheet on...
then try too put the duvet cover on....
play tug-o-war with rumpleteaser who is pulling at the bottom of the duvet cover....
finally get it on and realise rumpleteaser has given up and disaeared...
lay the duvet down on matress...
then sort the pillow sheet... then remove willow from the other pillow...
place the pillow cover on it.... battling with willow who insists that i will stroke her!

then i sit and marvel at thebed for the 3 brief seconds that the dogs and cats arent on it, then
i hear a tiny purr, and notice a tiny lump in the duvet i look around and notice rumpleteaser some how got in...

Tomas and Sho prefer to climb onto the sheets and blankets as we're trying to pull them up/straighten them out. They think riding the moving sheets is more fun then climbing under.

Snickers would jump on the bed before the fitted sheet got on then I would have to gently get her off then as I am trying to put the flat sheet on , Snickers would jump up on the bed and make sure she was under it and play a little "catch the caught air under the sheet" while I try to put it on. I always end up with a "snickers hump" under the sheets. Funny thing is she is the only one that does this. Oreo and Jazz have no interest in it.

I couldn't have said that better myself!

after all this talk of changing the sheets, i fear it is time to change them-I also have to keep the cats locked in the bedroom for the day due to some repairs being done in the house, wish me luck this could be a horrible disaster-for the sheets I mean!
post #21 of 21
I can do it just fine..I just wait till they are napping...
lol then change the sheets..
