My couch buddy

During the day when I'm on the couch, I have a couch buddy. He likes to sit right next to me, and sometimes, he likes to sit on my lap. Dante is so affectionate when he wants to be. It has to be on his terms. I like it when he sits right next to me. He's my little buddy.

Update: I just "wiped" Dante's butt. He had a piece of poop hanging from it. Does this ever happen to any other cat owners. At least twice a month, there is always poop stuck on his butt. Eeeeek!

We all need buddies! Ms. C is my couch buddy... she likes to have a siesta and I always join her.

Purrs,

Over the weekend, Mommy took a nap on the couch with Teak sleeping on her chest. When Dad walked into the den, he called Mom a cat magnet.....Cherokee was sleeping next to her side, Toy was sleeping between her knees, Ty was near her pillow and Setzer was sleeping in the tray on the coffee table.......Dad wishes he knew how to use Mom's camera! I, Tinker, had fallen asleep on her side of the bed in her room....don't know where Tang was=^Y^=

Oh Dante, you can be sweet! Toeshee is a cuddle bunny on his terms only too. Cricket sleeps with me at night and during the day when I'm not feeling well. Billie sleeps next to me in the evening when I settle down for tv watching. Cody will sleep at my feet. Such different personalities.
Dante, Toeshee would like you to come for cake and treats for his birthday. :) You two would probably trash any room you were in! :)
Hugs,
Lorianna

Sunny's Mommy said...

Yes. Sunny gets dingleberries. It's Sunny's Daddy's job to remove them. Sometimes he threatens to name them. We even have a song: "I'm working on a dingle for you, no ordinary dingle will do".

Dante looks quite cozy He must be a cat that likes people instead of other cats ;)
Mickey is older and had a bit of arthritis. The Vet suggested Lactulose
(stool softener) . Once in a while he too gets "hangers" heehee

I'm mum's couch buddy. I like to snuggle into her side. Sometimes when I have been eating long grass it comes out in my poop and sometimes it gets stuck and chases me like a string of sausages.Mum has to carefully pull the grass out. I don't like it when that happens and it makes me hiss.

Jack doesn't really get danglies, but sometimes something doesn't quite fall off until he's left the box and wandered down the hall. Our older cat was like Dante. Mostly wanted nothing to do with me during the day. Unless I was sitting on the couch, and then he'd cuddle up against my side. Also liked to burgle snuggles under the covers at night, but only after the lights were off and the other kitties couldn't see him!

uhm.....mine Mummy wipes mine butt everyday!!! She wipes the Giant Kitty's butt too but the Giant Kitty doesn't want to tell because he thinks it's embarrassing and totally undignified to have his butt wiped. But I think it's ok as long as the bean wiping mine butt is mine Mummy.

Sitting on the couch is much better when you have a couch buddy.

I always have Rosie and Arthur on my bed when I sleep. Lisa sits on my lap while watching TV.
I never had this problem with my cats. There must be something wrong, that's not normal at all. Cats usually are very clean animals. Maybe there is a problem with a muscle or simply the food, I would ask the vet.

The poopie thing happens to my brudders but not me. I think it's because they are extra floofy.

Poop bum is quite common particularly amongst pedigrees or cats that have eaten grass - you should own a Persian - it comes at a whole new level. Not very nice for cat or human.

Obsidian Kitten said...

I have couch buddies too--sometimes all three of them! I love it.

Such a great pic of the angel sleeping down there, lol

Grey Cat used to have the poop butt problem sometimes as he got older. Sometimes I used a baby wipe to clean him. They actually even make pet wipes now!

The Creek Cats said...

Yes!! Our mom calls it poopie-tail!

That looks very nice.

We don't wanna talk about the other thing. Too indiscreet. But between us cats: It happens to the best of us.
