Tuesday Tuxie Thoughts


So, last night Mom and I were sound asleep.  Suddenly I had a “nightcat”.  You don’t know what that is?  Well, humans call them “nightmares” and that doesn’t make sense to me.  Humans aren’t horses and neither am I.  Since the humans are too lazy to make it the right word, I decided I would.

In the light of day I don’t remember what my “nightcat” was about but it sure scared me.  I like to sleep up by Mom’s head so she can hear me purring.  We were both sleeping soundly and suddenly the “nightcat” made me fly out of bed.  Luckily Mom had her hand up by her face and that’s what I used as my launching pad.  She flew out of bed then, too.

She had that red stuff coming out of her hand and she had to take care of it.  She told me it was very lucky for me that I used her hand as the launching pad and not her face.  Needless to say I didn’t get to sleep in her room the rest of the night.

I wish I could remember what the “nightcat” was about.  Maybe I was afraid Shakespeare was going to eat all the food in the house…….


I was sound asleep in another room so don’t go blaming me for your “nightcat”!!!

  1. I have nightcats once in a while but fortunately for Mom I don’t sleep by her OR Dad so they are safe from my claws if I get wild! Hope you feel alright today- sometimes after a bad dream we’re a little “squirrely” !!

    Hugs, Sammy

  2. This is very interesting. Out tuxedo Kosmo has also “nightcats”. He is sleeping and suddenly jumps up shouting. One day I was sitting in an armchair, Kosmo was sleeping in a wardrobe and I heard him jumping down and he ran to me and jumped to my lap a little bit confused. These “nightcats” must be scary.

  3. Oh dude those Nightcats are horrible. Kali has a lot of them and she yells in her sleep. She’s not a lot of fun to sleep with because every night she gets them. Usually not too bad but some nights she calls out for mom and mom pets her and talks her back to sleep.

  4. That must have been a bad one. Marty has them too. Thank goodness you and your Mom are OK today Hemingway!

  5. We absolutely love both of these photos! Sorry about your nightcat, Hemingway! Good thing you didn’t launch from Mom’s face. Some of us have done that, and Mom did not take too kindly to it. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Purrs, meows, barks, chirps and human comments are greatly appreciated. We love hearing from our readers.
