Kittens as Blanket

This is okcforgottenman posting for Judy. Her electricity has been off for hours now, but she was able to use her iPhone and Kindle to send me these photos along with an explanation. The rest is Judy, from her own Skype texts. (As always, you can click on the photos to enlarge them.)

The girls were all girlcatting it around outside when I lay down on the sofa. Only Ollie, the boy, was asleep on the arm of the divan, all tangled up in my hair as usual with him. I woke up after a 3-hour unplanned nap. I guess the girls found mama after I fell asleep and just piled on. When I woke up, they were covering about all of me, but Ollie was on my chair by desk. No electricity – beeping of the UPS is what awakened me. About out of juice now on phone and computer (still no electricity) so gotta be faaaast. I had been listening to a book on my Kindle when I fell asleep, and suddenly realized it had a camera on it, so I learned how to use my Kindle to take photos and how to send them to my computer, all while lying under a cat blanket! The book finished while I was sleeping, by the way. Wonder if it entered my dreams. I’ll have to rewind it. I love it that I’m just the bottom cat in the pile. And so funny that the boy cat went over and slept alone on my chair instead of joining in.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    I don’t think I’d like it that Kindle reads on after you fall asleep! How do you know where you were when you stopped reading?! Love that the cats found such a welcoming mom. Are you having a storm, that you power was out?

      No.. the storm came after lights came back on. Ha. I wasn’t reading on Kindle. I was listening to an audible book. I just skip back until I find the last chapter I listened to. I have to be listening to a book or watching a movie to fall asleep.. Usually.

    Oh,, ok — I understand — I turn on the TV as I get into bed, and turn it off just as I fall asleep! But I really don’t know what I’m hearing towards the end, and would have a hard time finding the last chapter I truly heard!

      Ha! I needed a term for it. I am afraid I’m a bit gaga over the kittens/almost cats right now, but last night I put the camera of my computer on and let forgottenman (on Skype) watch their antics scampering over my bedcovers with me in the bed. He wound up as silly over them as I am and he is not an overly sentimental man–not too given to cute. I don’t feel so embarrassed about my excesses of enjoyment now since I think his delight exceeded even mine.
