It's the little things... - The Dainty Squid

It's the little things...

Thursday, August 18, 2011

like a sleepy Squid who can barely keep her eyes open...
It's been far too long since I did a "It's the little things..." post. So many that I think of posting are cat related (hey, I really like my cats, okay!) but I couldn't resist posting this one because for one - Squid never gets enough love from me on the blog. Two- how sweet is she!?!

Every morning when I wake up I head to the couch to try and catch a couple extra winks of sleep before Kevin goes to work and I head to my office and every morning Squid comes over, greets me with a dainty little half meow and curls up with me. It's really hard to not fall back asleep when you have a warm purring kitten on your tummy. She's the best!

Hope you all have a fabulous Thursday!
xoxo

  1. Awww such a cute cat. I'm currently trying to persuade my boyfriend he actually likes cats contrary to his own beliefs so that we can adopt one and I can while away lazy Sundays with a good book and a sleepy cat like this on my lap :)

  2. My kitties do the same thing. I think they actually recognize the alarm sound, and then come over to snuggle because they know I'm awake enough to pet them. It makes it so hard to get up! Nothing's more relaxing than a warm, purring kitty.

  5. Does she walk all over you to let you know she's hungry? If I don't wake up at a certain time, my cat will continue to walk across me until I wake up! And she knows, too! Even if I pretend to keep my eyes closed, she's all up in my face! :)

  6. Kristin, no because they're on a set food schedule. They eat at the same times every day and I get up way before it's time for their breakfast.

    But if I do sleep in they all are all over me trying to wake me up for food!

    Cats are so smart! :P

  8. So cute! My dog does the same thing, I get up, shower, and then he comes and sits on me bed and the two of us immediately fall asleep again. It's my favourite part of the day xo

  11. AWwwwwwwww!! How sweet!!! I wish I could my cat would curl up next to me and just go to sleep. She does at night, but in the mornings she is the energizer bunny that little sucker and she wants attention. So I have to dote on her, oh course! :)

  14. This is too cute!

    My cat Pixel does this half squeak half pigeon coo noise, jumps on the bed, and then curls up in my arms, shoving his head under my chin. And sometimes he puts his paws on either side of my neck and "hugs". Can't take it!

  18. Your cat photographs are ALWAYS a little delight in my life!

    Since I've lived on my own, I only have those little delights when I'm back home visiting my parents two cats. Though, when I am home at least one of the cats does the same thing-only when you're involved in something (like on a laptop or reading). The affectionate action is just too adorable to say no to! :)

  24. Okay so I got SO CREEPED OUT by this post because I looked at the picture, then I looked down or something, and I thought I saw Squid's eyes closed...but I looked again, and it didn't happen, so then I thought, "Oh my God, I'm going crazy. I need to stop reading blogs and step away from the computer." But then I realized his eyes really were moving, and all was again okay in the world. Phew.

  25. Oh man, she is so adorable!!! I love your kitty posts. ♥ Neither of our cats sleep with us during the night, though that could be because it's Summer and oh so hot. However, in the morning, Jen and I always get up together. If Jen gets up before me, Mau will jump on my tummy and lick my nose until I get up with her, haha. Wedge will stay on the bed before bedtime and try to play attack the cover!

    I love kitties!

  30. I've never been a cat person but my husband on the other hand is. So we have two dogs and one cat. She started coming to bed with me and snuggles on my pillow above my head. Its so comforting I fall asleep so fast. We're forming a special bond :)

  33. I love my dog way too much, I think. Or at least as far as the rest of the world is concerned. I love when people post photos of their pets. MORE SQUID!

  34. Awww she's the sweetest. If Ed leaves the door open when he gets up Tammy runs onto my pillow and meows incessantly and her meow is basically a little cat scream.

  37. I love your kitty posts!!! My cat cuddles with me at night, and she gets especially cuddly when my alarm starts going off. It's so hard not to snooze for forever when she's nuzzled in my neck!
