Readers, we have a problem! I like to sleep with Mom and she likes it when I purr in her ears. Now that winter is coming, I like to sleep on top of her head so she doesn’t get cold. She doesn’t mind as long as I don’t snore. Some of you already know this about me but I’ll explain to the new people. Sometimes at night I have “nightkitties”. You don’t know what they are? I know some of you do ‘cuz I’ve talked about them before. Mom talks about “nightmares” but I told her that since I’m not a horse, I can’t have “nightmares” so I have “nightkitties”. Oh, and Mom has “nighthumans”, in spite of what she says.
Anyway, when I have a “nightkitty” and get scared, I tend to launch myself off Mom’s head. Of course for extra traction my claws are out a little. That’s the bigger problem! Poor Mom has marks on her face that I made. Currently she has a big scratch on her chin from one of my launches the other night.
Mom says I should launch straight up like the normal rockets and not touch her.
So, I’m wondering if there are any Launching 101 casses anywhere in the Blogosphere. I don’t want to leave marks on Mom’s face. By the way, Steinbeck never does this. Launching sideways is my very own special problem.
Thanks for listening!

That is a problem.
I know! I’m really kind of frustrated.
Wow! My human never had any kitties getting bad dreams. If she did, she would encourage them them to sleep next to her, on top of the blanket, so she wouldn’t get hurt in the launching part.
It’s not often, and I do enjoy sleeping on Mom’s head. I’m helping her keep her brains from falling out. MOL!!
Would a little catnip reduce the nightkitties?
I think it would be great, but Mom thinks Steinbeck and I might get a little too excited.

Oh Hemingway I’m sorry you have nightkitties…..and launching is just a reaction to being scared but claws on Mom’s skin even accidentally is scary. I hope you can figure out an answer – I’m sure you both enjoy the snuggling but OUCH!!
Teddy, at least it doesn’t happen very often. Mom and I love to cuddle so I just have to make sure to have happy dreams.
Yikes! We don’t get nightkitties…not on the mom’s head at least.
You don’t want them, either!
Nightkitties sound pretty terrifying. I hope your mom doesn’t put baby socks on your paws. That happened to me when I scratched my own face too much.
Love and licks,
MOL!!! Cupcake with baby socks on. That’s a funny picture in our kitty heads!

Can’t respond to your post but we understand the A”NIGHTKITTIES” ALL too well.
The path to heaven passes through a teapot.
We’ve never heard that phrase before. It’s very interesting, and true!
It might be best to cuddle NOT on her head or face.
That’s what Mom says! MOL!!!
Tell your mommy dat’s what concealer be fur. MOL Mommy has some good ones ifin she needs to know what covers bestest. Big hugs

She actually doesn’t mind the scars. She says they are battle wounds! Besides, they don’t last long. If I happen to get her really good sometime, I’ll have her check with you on the best concealer. 🙂
mom could wear a goalie mask. They have holes to let her breath. As long as dad doesn’t have nighmares about fava beans and chianti…MOL!
MOL!!! I thought maybe Mom could sleep with the pillow over her head…..but she mumbled something about suffocating so I guess it wasn’t a good idea.
Maybe you need some dream therapy? Or some relaxing cat yoga before bed so you don’t have bad dreams? I am glad that I have never had nightkittens that I can remember but I hope you find a solution soon. Maybe just scoot down a little and curl up under your mommie’s arm and she will keep you safe.
Mom says I’ve been much better lately so I guess things have calmed down. Thanks for the ideas!
