A nightly routine

Sheeba sleeps much of the day while we're at home together, but when Ken gets home, no matter where Sheeba is at, he comes running. If he's in the basement, he'll come galloping up the stairs; if he's back in the bedroom, he'll come trotting down the hallway; if he's sleeping soundly on the warmth of Ken's laptop, he'll sloooowly get up and stretch, and come over to the door to greet Ken. He then follows Ken around like a puppy, meowing and chatting, and eventually flops over onto his side, rolls over onto his other side, and looks generally adorable. Why? He's waiting for his nightly kitty massage. Note the way he hangs onto the carpet for dear life, and although you probably can't hear it in this video, he purrs like crazy the entire time.

  1. My cats love that too --especially Harding who will roll and flop and purr like crazy, and then, out of nowhere, he goes into full-play mode, and it can quickly turn into a blood bath.

  4. Ah, Cat Massage!
    Our cats have also grown accustomed to and enjoy Butt Slaps. Repeated and alternating on both sides. One of our cats nearly goes into a tizzy when I provide Butt Slaps.

  5. Two of the girls I have won't beg for attention they demand it claws and all. The boys will roll on they're backs paws over their eyes pretended to be distressed until you pay attention to them.

    Sheeba looks happy. Looks like Ken's arms got a bit of a workout too. (Hugs)Indigo

  6. My babies like belly rubs! I'll bet Sheeba's fur glistens after that rubdown!

  9. Gosh I bet Ken is exhausted at the end of all that !! if we attempted to do that with Amber Mary's cat he would have our hands in shreds I'm sure. He will allow us to brush hime for a wee time but he is just as quick to turn and try to catch you unawares and blood can be the result !!
    Love Sybil xx

  10. We've got six cats and they each have their own quirky feline personalities. And, we love them all! Great video. A+ to Ken on his brilliant kitty massage technique!

  13. That is SOOO CUTE, and FUNNY!!! It looks like it would hurt poor Sheeba.... he's probably thinking... "Man, I hate this part, but Ken likes it sooo much, I hate to disappoint him!" LOL!!!

  14. Uhm, Sheeba, I hate to break it to you but... I think you're actually a dog. I know you look like a cat, talk like a cat and walk like a cat but, dude, you're a DOG. I've had cats that enjoy that sort of abuse, however, it doesn't usually go on that long before they say ok, enough.
    Love,

    P.S. Sending dog treats for xmas this year "kitty." I'm onto you.

  18. Sheebah is so beautiful :) and so very very lucky! But you two are also (you know that I realize lol)... When I see someone express their love for their furry family member like that it makes me smile and as I've said before...my heart happy :) that little "meow" was so like Heathen's I could hear him do it.
