A Description of My Best-ever Sleep


I must give you a description of my best-ever sleeping. Yes, we have our cat perch that's good for naps in the sun, laps good for short snoozes, cushions with afghans to burrow under for slightly longer naps and our kitty beds for quick catnaps. But friends, last night I found the best, the ultimate, the FINAL WORD in sleeping arrangements and just knew I had to share this with you.

While I've slept on all the beds in our house, and sometimes for 8 hours or longer while Mom & Dad are at work, what I'm going to describe is best for nighttime sleeping...the time when we dream of kittyness and re-vitalize ourselves, preparing for the day to come.

George, what is this fantastic thing, you may ask? Fleece sheets, friends...FLEECE SHEETS!!! Yes, the ultimate in warmth and comfort for a cat. While this may not be of interest to those of you who live in warmer areas, we cats living in northern climates need heat and what could be better than sleeping on what feels like a warm, soft, cozy sweatshirt?

Naturally Mom bought these fuzzy wonders in blue (my color) so I can look my best while in bed.


Actually, it was the only color they had left in Queen size.


Whatever...can I get on with my story, please!

(sighs & rolls eyes) Anyway, last night was the first night I got to try the fleece. Usually I sleep on flannel sheets in the winter, so at first I was a little skeptical about this new fabric. But once I got under the quilt, between the sheets...friends, I cannot describe how good it felt against my fur, my face, my paws. All the tenseness of my daily responsibilities and stress melted away and I felt like I was floating on a warm cloud.

As usual, I slept cuddled in Mom's arm, my back against her chest. She takes my tail in her other hand and sweeps it up against my back paws, I rest my head on the pillow right next to hers and start purring until I fall asleep. And let me tell you, my purrer was working overtime last night! Of course, if Mom breathes on my ear, I flick it in her face and she doesn't like that so she moves her head back.

You're probably thinking "Man...George has it made!" Yes, I must admit being Senior Cat has it's advantages and I'm spoiled. Of course, Dad was in the bed too, and Tipper, Max and Misty were on top of the quilt, snuggled by Mom's or Dad's legs. But I'M the only cat who enjoyed the fleece sheets!

I highly recommend these fuzzy wonders, friends. If you live where it's cold, you might consider adding a set of fleece sheets to your list for Santa. Then you too can enjoy your best-ever sleep in your bed.

George, that sounds very, very luxurious!

I do the ear-flick thing too if my Mommie breathes on my ear. It's funny.

No one here cuddles under the sheets but the woman who is always cold is thinking, hmm... fleece sheets, where can I get some?

Oh, those fleece sheets sound fabulous. My Mum says she has seen them but wasn't sure how they would be for sleeping. Now she knows and she will have to go find some.

Those sound very warm! You do have it made, getting the prime spot sleeping with Mom :-)

That sounds like pure HEAVEN!

FLEECE SHEETS?! Holy cats! We need some of those. Mooooommmmm!

How is the shock factor? Momma wears fleece jammy pants and when she uses the fleece blankie on the couch, then she ends up shocking us (not on purpose). Are they really crackly and shock-y? Momma wants to put those on her Christmas list.

What a wonderful review you wrote there George. Even though we live in California, it does get cold enough for flannel sheets. Fleece sheets sound wonderful. I enjoyed reading about how you sleep in your mom's arms. We have two kittens and one of them has taken to sleeping under the comforter next to Mom, but the other kitten won't leave her in peace. It's all quite funny.

We live where it's warm most of the time but our Nanny is always cold - so that's a good idea to get her some fleesce sheets. She likes her flannel sheets but we think your endorsement seals the deal. Mom has been racking her brain (what there is of it) for something to give her. Thanks!!!

That sounds delightful George, glad you got a good night's rest. Mum says she would probably get too hot with those type of sheets.

OHMYGOSH that sounds like a fresh sweatshirt right outta the dryer! What else could be better?????

George that sounds super! We're gonna have to look into that. We thought the puffy down duvet was good, but there could be more!?

Oh yes those are wonderful, d'boy has them on his bed in a nice shade of chocolate brown - good for hiding cat fur! We'z all look forward to him having those on in the winter and take it in turns to try and sneak into bed with him and enjoy them ourselves! ;)

Oh my! These sheets sound dreamy!

Way to go nose twin! I'm the senior poodin here too. I like to sleep on the fleece beds that Maw makes. She doesn't have fleece sheets. Bummer.
