How is it possible to have trouble sleeping?

My Mum says this is how she feels at work lately - all wrapped up in tape - ha, ha, ha...... To make matters worse she isn't sleeping very well. She was just about to fall asleep at 5:30 this morning when I decided to play attack the fuzzy mouse in the bathtub : ) She managed to get about an hour an a half of sleep. I NEVER have any trouble sleeping!

Cute photo Kellie! We are sorry to hear your mom isn't sleeping well. We never have trouble sleeping either.

We could never figure out why humans have trouble sleeping. Our Mommy cause it somnia and we think its weird. When she has somnia she stays up all night reading or watching tv and sighing a lot but not sleeping. Humans are weird.

Work is hard! Maybe if your mom's brain is working so hard it won't stop so she can get some sleep. I never have trouble sleeping. But my brain does not have to work very hard.

Oh man, that's too bad that your momma can't sleep. My momma sleeps a lot, which is good, because we can snuggle in bed for a long time. I hope your momma can take some naps with you.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

You look too cute in that picture, Kellie! My mommy feels bad for your mom . . . not being able to sleep is horrible she says. I make sure she gets up at 5:30 every morning for work . . . and sometimes just to make extra sure she wakes up on time I start whapping her at 3:00.

My human is the worst sleeper in the world. It's annoying. I want to take nice catnap and always distrubing me.

Guess if she didn't want you to play in the bathtub, she should have slept in the bathtub so you couldn't play there. She might have gotten more sleep.

While I would usually agree that 5:30 a.m. is the perfect time to play attack the fuzzy mouse in the bathtub, you must remember mum's work pays for your meals...

I think sleeping is a thing that we are very good at. I never have trouble falling asleep either.

Annie Mosaic Cat said...

Oh no...that is very sad about your Mum's sleep challenges! Mosaic Lady wakes up every hour to pee, but if I am gracing her bed that night, she very carefully gets out on the other side of the bed so as not to disturb me.
As it should be.
(If we say this is one of our favorite photos of you, please don't yell at your Mum for posting a duplicate. ML did that on Wed. with the two of Wilie she put up. Some photos are just classics for all time and worth repeating!)

HRH Yao-Lin said...

it is fun to keep the humans awake from time to time, when they are sleepy I find them easier to boss around. So good job Kellie! Or rather, Hellie at 5.30 in the morning! xx

Insomnia is the pits. My mum has had a few bouts of it. Nothing seems to fix it, til it fixes itself. Poor mom - maybe she will have to take cat naps with you when she gets home.

thinking of you and your tired mom. Hang in there sleepy mom.

We sleep just fine, unlike our Mom who suffers terribly from insomnia. She says if someone could figure out how cats sleep 18 hours a day and bottle it, they could make a squillion dollars!

We nefurr have a problem wiv sleeping. Our mum never used to git to sleep, she'd lie awake all night furr weeks getting grumpier and grumpier until she felt reely ill. Then one night she wuz working on the compooter and didn't git to bed until gone 1am and she sez she slept like a log until 6am. She did the same fing the next night and it worked again so now she never goes to bed befurr 1am and she sleeps furr five hours. She sez after years of nearly no sleep, five hours is great.

Kellie, I've missed you, dear! What a beautiful picture of you -- you are such a precious girl!

And I'm so sorry to hear your Mom's having trouble sleeping. My mom has insomnia, too, from time to time -- she goes through cycles with it, and I know it can be very rough on the beans, not to get good sleep. I hope your Mom does better on the sleep tonight, and please tell her my Mom sends her big, empathetic hugs!

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn.

You look like you are having fun with that tape. We are sorry your mom can't sleep. It isn't fun when the beans can't sleep because they disturb ours too.

My mommy also has trouble sleeping. I do not understand this at all. In fact, it is 1:30pm and I just woke up!!!

My mom has sleep problems too sometimes. Mostly when she's super stressed out. It's a concept I don't understand either. I always sleep well. Who knows??

I hope your mom got some naps over the weekend.

That is an awesome photo, Kellie~!
You could ask your mommy let you attend "stuff on cat" I believe it will be cool~!!!

Tybalt said...

Hi Kellie! I just wanted you to know that I tagged you for the "7 Random Things Meme" in my post for today.

Good luck with getting your mommy to sleep! Purrrs.

Your Poor mom no sleep is horrible.
Maybe if you snuggle her it will help.
