A Happy Surprise #Caturday

Hi, there! My name is Tipper Allen, and guess what? I have a whole couch, all to myself! It has a quilted cover on it, so I don’t get cushion thread on my white coat, and a pillow I can hide behind to watch the birds and squirrels. If I sit at the window, not as many of them land, and they don’t stay very long. So I sneak and peek!

The sun comes in onto that couch, too, and that’s nice.

But I’m not selfish. I let anybody sit with me who wants to.

And, the other day, my poppa decided to take a nap on it! He usually takes a nap on another couch that’s too skinny. There isn’t room for me, Poppa, and those weird long hind legs that people hobble around on. Poppa even put one of the legs away, so there would be more room for me.

What a great nap!

My Aunt Sweetie Pie says it’s been too long since I posted a picture of her, so here’s one:

Oh, and Momma wants me to tell you that she found her ring. She said, “It was in a box of scarves I had looked through before, but I looked more carefully and there it was.” Maybe I can get her to find my middle-sized mouse. I’ve looked everywhere! Momma says, “You haven’t looked everywhere, because you still haven’t looked where it is.” Ha ha.

    It’s so Nice of you to let Papa sleep with you on the couch you’re a good kitty. Our dog loses her favorite toy all the time, as does out littlest cat MiMi. We humans spend a lot of time searching under furniture for Maddie’s acorn and “little foam ball”

    Have a good weekend. Don’t forget to nap.

      Tipper never forgets to nap, even if he does forget where he left his toys. For his birthday, he’s getting a play center with all the toys attached or inside a box with holes in it, so he can play and not lose anything. Of course, he’s also getting a couple of new losable ones. 😉

      Yes, he rolls around in the wheelbarrow and on the sooty basement floor (Tipper, not my husband), but he doesn’t want couch threads on his coat. Still talking about Tipper.

    That really is a great couch, Tipper. There aren’t many that can comfortable fit a cat AND a human, especially one of the longer ones. I think your humans love you. 🙂

      Once he learns that my hands and feet are not squeak toys, he’ll be perfect!

    LOL! I love how they share the couch and nap. That sunny corner of the couch looks like a purr-fect place to perch to watch birds!

    I’m so happy to hear you found your ring, and found it so fast!!

      Charlie put the cover on the couch to protect it from sun damage (he’s so Martha Stewart!), but it also protects the cat from being yelled at when he gets on the couch. Win-win!

      I figured my ring had probably slipped off in that box of scarves or in Mom’s dishtowel drawer, and it turned out to be the first one. 🙂
