Love On The Rocks

There's been some comments on some of our pictures about the rocks we sleep on. I wanted to clear these things up so that Mommy doesn't look like a bad Mommy that makes us sleep on rocks! It's our choice, I promise!

See Mommy? I typed it like you asked. Now give me that treat you promised ;)

Years ago, before we came here, Mommy had an aquarium in this old aquarium stand. Apparently Muddy used to hit the glass a lot with his massive paws trying to get through the glass at the fishies. Now if you missed Delilah's post about Muddy, he was a big monster-cat! After years of Muddy's batterings, the glass weakened and one night, Mommy woke up to find that most of the water had drained out of the aquarium through a tiny crack in the glass. None of the poor fishies made it (LUNCH!) and a lot of the floor was ruined. Anyway, Mommy really loved that aquarium and planned to get a new one so she kept the stand and the rocks that were in it.

Delilah and I came along and still no aquarium (Mommy procrastinates an awful lot). We adopted that place as our love nest. It is the place we go when we want to be alone and clean each other and sleep. Deli is more into the actual sleeping ON the rocks (I prefer to sleep on Deli's furry body ;)) but we both indulge occasionally. There are plenty of soft, warm places to sleep on in this house, but we very often choose this dirty, old, rocky aquarium. Mommy laughs at us but we love it! She's not so sure she wants to get a new aquarium now because she thinks we might miss our love nest. I think watching fishies all day might be really great! Deli and I will easily find another place to express our feelings for each other. I'm a rather charming dude!

Have a great day!

We know rocks can be very comfy sometimes! And sometimes a nice woodpile is very good, too!

That is a very interesting place to nap!! We will have to tell our mom to get us some rocks too!!

Wow, Muddy was quite strong to crack that glass!

This is so funny! I have never seen anything like it before. I think Deli is trying to tell your mom she doesn't need an aquarium when she has you to look at :)

we thought perhaps you were neil diamond fans but we see dem is actual rocks. our motto is ' if it makes you happy that is what matters' and maw thinks it is cute cuz it is so unique and different that is is that more special!!!!

and rocks offer a cool and refreshing feel to the skin in the hot weathers which all cats appreciate.

enjoy your rocks guys and see us a visits too.

Ha! That was a very interesting post! What a particular love nest you two have there. Still, an aquarium would be cool too.
Thanks for your purrs for mom. She made it through the exam alive and is now back home with us. She said it went okay, not perfect, but okay.
Purrs, Siena & Chilli

That's a very interesting story...we cats do find funny spots to nap in sometimes...but no rocks at our house...

I haven't seen kitties sleeping on rocks before but maybe they are nice and cool or something. I think it helps that you are floofy so carry your cushion wherever you go!
