The bed hog...

This scene is not uncommon at our house.

Baby decides to sprawl out...

... on the comfy dog bed...

... while poor Mr. J is left with nothing but the hard floor.

Does this look like the face of a cat who has even a shred of guilt? 
No, I didn't think so either.

Sometimes Mr. J does try to make himself comfortable on the old chenille scatter rug...

... but it's hardly as comfy as his thick, padded dog bed.

Mr. J is confiding to Lamb Chop that he saw mommy (me) watching a video on the computer that shows this same scene playing out, on a daily basis, in houses all over America!

(This video is sooooooo sweet!)
Mr. J has never confronted Baby over his bed, but be sure to watch these sweet pups who are very politely trying to reclaim what is rightfully theirs from the family cat!
(I highly recommend enlarging the video so you can really see these guys!)


And don't forget, Monday at midnight is the deadline to leave a comment here if you'd like to win (your choice of) a print from my Etsy art shop!


I hope you all have a great weekend!

Audrey gives Baby 'two paws up' for her perseverance and tenacity. It goes on here all the time.

Awww, I feel so sorry for Mr. J. He looks just pitiful! I'd be saying, "Scat cat!" Thanks for the darling pics...even though I'm still sad...LOL

Looks like my daughters house. Loved the video. My daughter has five cats and two dogs. One cat thinks it is a dog and sleeps with them.

Hi Donna....That was a cute post. Oh, POOR Mr. J. He looks so sad! The video was adorable, too. Susan

Mr. J is being too nice and Baby is being too naughty! There is a solution, however. Get a second bed!

This is so darn cute with Baby stealing the doggie bed...and I have to say, the prettiest dog bed I've ever seen! I saw that video on FB - too funny. I left a message on your giveaway post while back, so I'm all good for being counted in for the giveaway. I *love* this cat picture you just posted and it's so true!

Oh Baby! I recognize that dog bed, my friend. For some reason, Scout doesn't want to use hers anymore. Should I send the duplicate to you for your doggie? But I have a feeling Baby would take over that bed, too!

I love that you have a Lamb Chop, too!
