Had the scare of my life last night!

January 17th, 2009, 11:30 AM
I was sound asleep all nice and cozy with the gang when suddenly BAM! Not only did something hit my eye, but it scratched the heck out of it. :laughing: Thank goodness we sleep with our eyes closed, or else I'd be in a world of hurt.

My only guess is, it was either Vlad or Kiska stretching and I was in their way. Vlad has taken to sleeping just above my head, on the pillow I use to prop up my sleeping pillow slightly. Kiska is sleeping right against my pillow on my right side. So, one of them got me.

Right now I've got a big old scratch on my eyelid that's not feeling too good. I think that's my cue to cut some kitty nails this weekend.:rolleyes:

Ouch!! I know your pain!! So sorry. :grouphug:

Ms Atty has taken to wanting my attention for a large portion of time when I am in the cathouse with the kitties. If I stop petting/scratching her to pet someone on the next shelf down she lets me know by smacking the top of my head. And she doesn't do it with claws retracted!! :frustrated:

I can relate (sorta) Diamond has taking to "pouncing" feet outstretched and caught my face 4x this week (todays was just under my eye)

It's easy to forget our little ones have sharp teeth and nails because they're so cute and cuddly with us. I know whichever one that did it didn't intent anything other than just a stretch I imagine, but boy, not the way I want to be woken up!

The other night I was lying in bed watching TV and one of my nephews came home. Of course Dracko was all barky at first and he startled the cats. Ginkgo was sleeping on me and she launched off! Dang it hurt. She scratched the heck out of my stomach.

AG, I know the feeling with being woken up like that, too. A long time ago I was sleeping and woke up to a cat landing on my face as he/she jumped off the window ledge on to my bed! Since it was dark I didn't know who it was. I'm thinking Smitty or Ginkgo as they are the 2 who typically are on the ledge and come down in that area. I walked around with a scratch on my lip that looked like a cold sore for a week or so. :o

I've never had a kitty, but I do have a 35lb puppy who likes to sleep on the pillow above my head. :dog:
So far, no scratches. Although he does like to use my head as his pillow. :sleepy:

Oh, the life of a fur-ball! :cloud9:

Oh owie! Sorry to hear about your eye. :grouphug:

LOL, at least I'm not the only one. LOL, not long ago, one of them also woke me up when they lunged at my neck. :laughing: I was like, holy crap, these cats are trying to kill me! My guess is they got startled by the monster under the sheets.

O.K I am sorry what happened :eek: but at the same time I was lol.

Animals, thank goodness we love them.

Yes, now it's funny. At the time not so much. :D

Yes, I'm the monster under the sheets. They've pretty much stopped attaching my legs when they see them moving, but now and then I wake up to kitties attacking my legs or hands.

Yeeouch! Sneak attack!

Hope your eye heals quickly!

(My bed is like a mine field too.... one wrong move and Whammo! Claw to the toe, or arm or cheek! :eek::rolleyes::laughing:)

I guess that's the price we pay for sleeping with wild animals.:laughing:
