One young, orange and white cat. He is friendly and not particularly intelligent. He follows me around in the yard and likes to chase the chickens. He would be the perfect cat except for one problem.

Not every night, but with annoying regularity, he gets lonely in the wee small hours of the morning. He climbs on the bed, walks over the lumps and bumps under the covers until he gets to my head. Then the trouble starts. He sticks his nose in my ear, tickling my cheek with his whiskers. He licks my cheek and then bounds across the pillow to bestow some kitty kisses on my husband before he comes back. If one of us doesn’t start petting him he pushes his nose up under my hand. If that doesn’t work he nibbles on my fingers.

Ignoring him is difficult. Usually I give in and stroke his soft furry head. Most of the time he will settle down and drift off to sleep, unfortunately his favorite place to relax is draped across my neck.

He’s a friendly little fellow.

Oh cherish those moments! We lost our Sam to a bobcat recently. He insisted on going out and would raise such a yowl if we didn't let him. One night the boys let him out when I asked them not to.

Awwwwww - cuddly little guy! I like cuddlers, but I agree - being awakened for cuddling regularly would be annoying.

Cats are so cute little fellow.

Why is it that cats think they need to share our pillows? And why, if they must, do they think the best way to do that is to lie directly on whatever is already resting on that pillow? I had a cat that would plunk himself down between my head and the headboard, so he was sort of sitting on the crown of my head. He was a big boy, too! And if I dared to move because he was pulling on my hair or giving me a neck cramp, he would pick himself up and flop down on me all over again!

Sounds like a cute cat ... although maybe not so much in the wee hours. :)

When I was a young teenager with very long hair my dad used to quietly open the door to my room every morning, which was a signal for the gray cat to sneak in to my bed and sit on my sleeping face and start messing with my hair. Who needs an alarm clock?
