Nightime Ritual

Every night, at bedtime, I jump up on the bed and say to Momma, "mahh, mahh," in my tiniest, high, squeaky voice. Then I give her headbutts and curl up next to her. My purrbox starts up, and I sing her a kitty lullaby. Momma says I have a tiny hoarse voice and a lovely motor. On occasion, I will go under the covers and make biscuits into her belly, until she makes me stop. Every time she wakes up in the night, she can see my ears, so she knows I am there. Sometimes she touches me, and I serenade her back to sleep. If I go get crunchies or a drink, I come right back and cuddle close. I am a good girl.

Mittens, you are the bestest girl! My mommy readed this to me. Sammy does the same fing to our Mommy - sings her to sleep. She says when he sleeps on her pillow, her head vibrates from the purring.
Take care my bestest furriend! - Trixie

Momma says you sound furry sweet, Mittens, just as sweet as me. She wants to cuddle with you too (I could be jealous.)

Oh, Mittens, how very sweet. What a wonderful girl you are. You take such good care of your Mommy. I'm going to read this to little KC, she is learning. She also has a tiny mew, but she is still a very young kitten.

My Meowmie and Pawmie are both great cuddlers...I am sitting on my Meowmie's lap as I paw this note. Hope your Meowmie is doing good, we are sending our best wishes.

I'm a good snuggler too. The Lap Lady is convinced that girl kitties are much more snuggly than boy kitties. I take up more space on the bed than the Lap Lady does.

You sound like a perfect little darling!

Mittens, that is the perfectest Cat behavior. You know how to keep a human happy. This is a good thing. I'm not so good to my Mom but almost.

Mittens, you are the purrfect little girl. You will make the bestest nursie when your mama needs it. I will come and help you, if you like, but I think you are the bestest nursie a mama could want. Really. I would be taking lessons from you more than anything.

Sweet girl!

So nice that you sing your mum to sleep Mittens. That makes it so easy to fall asleep to.

Mom wishes we'd do that kind of stuff. She once had a cat who slept at her side all night and she misses it. But we just don't snuggle. But she better not go & get a girl cat......

Mom's had a kitty on her bed most of her life and says she always sleeps better like that. Bonnie slept on their feet until I came. She nefur told me that was her spot, so I just followed Mom to the bedroom and took up my position. Just two nights now, I went all the way down under the covers and found Mom's toes! If they tickle me, I haf to (gently) attack them. What fun! As I get older an less of a kitten, I'll try to be more like you, Mittens. Where does Patches sleep?

Mittens show this to my mommy.She asked why I never serenade her.So I starts to sing and she covers her ears.Humans go figure.Maybe
you can teach us other kitty's how.
