I Said I Would Move!

Why you wanna make dis bed?

I was sleepin’ heah!

You couldn’t have waited?

Sender-inner Sharon H. says this is Skiffy, who was rescued from an abandoned building, “He looks distressed, but he is just meowing to signal for me to help him get down from the bed (too big of a jump for this little guy).”



  1. Mary (the first) says:

    What a little sweetie pie!! I love the babehs!!

  2. He may be asking for your help but there is surely a threat behind the request; you can’t fool me, I haz a cat!

  3. Guinea Peeg Lover says:

    And that is all for today.

  4. Oh, I love it when kittens are at that stage where meows displace their entire faces. Flip-top heads! What a cutie, and I’m so glad he got rescued.

  5. OMG! That teeny peenk tongue, the laser blue eyes, the dish antenna ears pointed toward Mars, getting instructions from the Mother Ship–it’s a teensy CO overlord in training, learning to dazzle us with teh Qte!

  6. Andi from NC says:

    I would love a “teef-hance” on this one!!!

  7. Flutterby says:

    Meeeeeeeaaaaarrrrrr…..pfffffft !!!!

    Demanding little squirt, just like my Bucky !!

  8. It never stops too, my cat is full sized and still mews to get moved a foot to the left.

  9. Flutterby says:

    Ack! Just went up to look at him again and he LOOKS just like Bucky when he was a wee little squirt !!

  10. He’ll get big soon enough but if he’s anything like my Big T (the lazy bum). he’ll still asking for help on and off things no matter how big he gets.

  11. You WILL obey!

  12. Sharon H. you are a beautiful person for rescuing this little baby!

  13. I second that request! Teef-hance! Teef-hance!

    Awwwww! Come herez leetle Skiffykins, Auntie kibblenibble weel help you…
    *scoops kitteh up gently, walks away whistling nonchalantly*

  16. I wouldn’t say Skiffy looks distressed exactly. More like imperious. Remember to worship your feline overlord properly and obey his every command. That’s what you’re there for.

  17. i have kitten who “helps” make the bed! Usually this involves ten minutes of pouncing on the covers and getting buried under the blankets.


  19. My dear, departed Steve used to do that! She’d run under all the blankets, and then meow to be gotten out.

  20. Martha in Washington says:

    My Gemma can hear me remove the old sheets from downstairs and around the corner and comes running to help put the new ones on. It always takes me twice as long to do it when she helps.

  21. Isn’t that why we’re on this Earth? To be the happy slaves to our overlord’s demand, er, request?

  22. Argh! My Chrestomanci ALWAYS jumps right in the middle of the bed while I’m making it… no matter how many times I throw him off. I basically have to lock him out of the bedroom to get the chore done…

  23. OMG, Chrestomanci — great cat name — and so glad to see someone else read those books!!! I still reread everything by Diana Wynne Jones I can lay my hands on.

    And… yes, I once catsat for a cat who would help make the bed by jumping in the middle of it and then splaying out, holding it down while I put the sheets on. It was very helpful, in case gravity suddenly failed…

  24. Chocolate ears. Yum.

  25. *Scootches around corner, listens intently for nonchalant whistling, times extension of tripping leg to confound kibblenibble, grabs kitteh, dashes toward the door*

  26. cellarmouse says:

    flip-top heads…hah…

  27. cellarmouse says:

    well done…

  28. That’s it! They also dispense Pez.

  29. cellarmouse says:

    thanx for telling me where to look for chrestomanci…maybe i’ll find something as pleasantly distracting as cute overload…how else to get past an addiction but by moving on to another?…

  30. “It was very helpful, in case gravity suddenly failed…” *snerk*

  31. Ditto, what Angel said. 🙂

  32. Rumplestiltskin says:

    I can’t believe more than one person out there had a female cat named Steve! I thought my sister was the only one…

  33. kibblenibble says:

    😆 😆 😆

  34. Yup, and I (for one) get reminded of that at least twice a day. Particularly if I even think of standing up and walking past the kitchen……

  35. That’s because you are finally doing it right MiW. 🙂

  36. Oh please. I bet he can get down on his own but why move when you have a foot servant? Ya gotta train them early.

    Oh, and YEA for ResQte™!!!

  37. I have two bed making kitties- Frodo & Gus. Frodo especially likes to help when the sheets are right out of the dryer. He’ll also help me fold my underwear & no I will not share that picture! 😉

  38. It’s a great name for a cat, with just one drawback: no easy way to shorten it. I tried to get him to respond to “Chris” for a while (as in Christopher Chant) but he didn’t seem to recognize it… so I have to say the whole mouthful every time I call him!

    And of course, if I want him to come, I have to say it three times… 🙂

  39. emmberrann says:

    The late-and-much-beloved Mr. Picky loved to get himself “made” into the bed. Then he would then mess it up again looking for a wsy out. One of his favorite games!

  40. 😆 I would just love to see a video of the cat you catsat helping you make the bed, Shaz, if the cat is still around 😆

  41. AWW 😀 How sweet 😀 How do you pronouce “Chrestomanci”, kodalai?

  42. AWW 😆 Could you just send us a video of your two sweeties helping you make your bed instead, Ali-Baba 😆 I believe we all can get a mental picture of the “fun” you have with your cat, Frodo, helping you with your underwear folding 😆

  43. I second that 😀 AWW 😀 Sweet little Skiffy is such a cutie 😀 How old is the little baby? 😀

  44. *Taps RosieLB on shoulder, grabs kitty, and runs away as fast as possible*

  45. Oh truly. That kitten means bidnes.

  46. Eddy insists on getting under the sheets when I’m putting clean ones on, then gets scared and cries for me to rescue him. Have I ever mentioned he’s not too bright?

  47. I third! Teef-hance!Teef-hance!Teef-hance!

  48. Skiffy! What a wonderful name!
    I sometimes wait all day to make the bed because a cat is on it. God forbid a human should ever make a cat move.

  49. Meeeeeuwww, Meeeeeuwww, MEEEEEEUWWW!!! 😯
    (translation: If you don’t haul your lazy buttt over here RITE NAOW,
    you will feel the total extent of my teeney-tineey wrath:
    I will show you the damage my sharp widdle babbeh teef and miniature pointy-ends can do……!!!! :mrgreen: )

  50. Ragdoll Rage Against the machine!


  51. joools in PDX says:

    OMG want him so bad! The tiny mews, the needle-sharp teef-n-claws! We’ve been catless for three long years… I can walk INTO my kitchen and OPEN a can of TUNA and NOBODY CARES.

  52. Krest-oh-man-see. I think.

  53. Oh, thank you, easol 😀

  54. AWW, I am so sorry to hear that you have been catless for three long years 😦 There must be a SPCA nearby where you can adopt a kitty or two or more, jools in PDX 😀 Then you can have teeny tiny claws running up your pant legs as those kitties climb you to get to the can of tuna 😆

  55. that is one scary-looking kitten. i wouldn’t mess with him eveh. you can have the bed.
