Festival of Sleep Celebration - Holiday recuperation

Paprika here! Our Sunday selfie is about the glories of sleep.  In fact, this weekend (January 3) is called Festival of Sleep.  At such a time it's absolutely unthinkable that a cat should have to get up any sooner than she wants to!

Our weekend started out with an activity I often enjoy, becoming a LUMP under the covers.  

 However I was discovered!  My human was not as pleased with my selection of sleeping places as I thought...

Would you believe she actually tried to get me to come out!  How unfair for a girl who's just trying to snuggle!
I explained to my human that I was purr-featly comfortable and happy in my digs & leaving was unthinkable.

For some reason she thought I was smothering which I debated hotly. Finally I BEGGED to stay under the comfy covers.

In the end, I had to actually recruit my sis-fur Peaches, to help me stand solid against the human so that we didn't have to get out of bed.  Peaches is much fiercer than me and as you can see we created a "united furr-ont."

Finally, we thought we'd entertain a couple friendly fill in's.

Paprika's answers:

I hope I always get to stay under the covers.
I hope I never have to ask Peaches for help again cuz she always lords it over me.

We're joining Cat on My Head's Sunday Selfie Hop today.  Are all you kitties catching a good snooze to recover from the holidays?  Don't you think being a lump under covers is allowable?


  1. My cats are all being lumps this weekend too! They must have heard it was the Festival of Sleep too. You just keep snuggling.

  2. You two did make me laugh!!

    Please tell mum I will be back from my holidays this week if she wants me to help.

  3. Awww, I hope you got to stay as long as you wished. One lump or two is a cry I often hear at the palace tearooms, alas it is never about me being under the covers.

  4. Flynn was always the bed monster here. He loved to sleep under the covers day and night. Often I would wake in the night and he was snuggled into my tummy.

  5. That's one celebration we like! Noelle likes to get under the covers here.

  6. You two really are pretty darn cute so just stay put today!

  7. Pretty girls! Tis the season for snuggling down in something warm and napping!

  8. Very cute selfies. Enjoy that nap.

  9. I can't think of a better festival! I've never had a cat get under the covers, believe it or not.

  10. Peaches and Paprika, I'm glad you sorted out to stay in bed!!! Purrz from the Katie Katz

  11. A typical morning finds us all on the bed. Ayla is on a folded blankie in the cornerof the foot of the bed. Marley is on the opposite foot corner. Iza is usually at TBTs shoulders on either side.

    Sometimes TBT wakes up and can see enough in the dark that all of us are there. That makes him so happy.

    Well, that's kinna why we do it. He makes us happy, we try in return...

  12. took some great Selfies under that bed, Peaches and Paprika...MOL..Pawkisses for a Cozy Day🐾😽💞
