Does your cat burrow??

I have a Siamese that burrows under the sheets on my bed to sleep. I almost layed on her once, so glad I didn't accidently crush the poor thing.

None of the other cats I have had have done that.

Does anyone elses cat do this?

My adult daughter's cat, Neko, does that. Neko stayed with me once when my daughter was on vacation. I put him in a spare bedroom, to separate him from my cats. One evening, I went up to feed and play with him and I couldn't find him. I looked high and low -- under the bed, under the dressers, behind the nightstand, in the closets, everywhere. The door to the bedroom had been locked, so he couldn't have escaped. I was at a loss, and I thought, "I've lost Neko. My daughter will shoot me". Then I saw a shape underneath the sheets, blankets and bedspread...and the shape was MOVING. Aha...I had found Neko! I told my daughter about it when she came home, and she said "Oh yes. He does that all the time. I guess I should have told you. Sorry about that!".

Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.

Lol! what a scare that must have been. I guess it must be warm.

Another one of my cats opened the drawer in my bathroom, dumped all my stuff on the floor and slept in the drawer!

Charlee loves to burrow. She'll start from standing up on the floor at the foot of my bed and burrow up and under the sheets.

Many of our kitties like to sleep under the blankets w/ me, but I usually hold the blanket up for them to come under, they don't try to get under themselves. Unless it is Shasta in a cat carrier under the loose towel on the way to the vet. Then she is *always* under the towel.

The kitties who like to sleep under covers:
Snow, Marmy, Blaze, Toby, Mister, Shadow, Louie, Shasta, Skippyjon and Malibu.

First off, gorgeous coat! <3 Siamese, would match my decor actually heheh!

Yes and no. I've been training the kitties to stay off the human bed (not fond of shedding, potential for litter dust from tail on occasion, immobilizing their dad, and if stepping in poop by accident yeah thats the last thing I need tracked on my brown sheets), so they don't pull that when I'm around at least, but throw a blanket on the ground and Wesley in particular will often get a running/lunge start to slide under.

I think I encouraged it since a lot of our play involves blankets on the floor.

My two little ones will only burrow if I lift the blankets up. My sister's old girl can always be found under a pillow or a blanket.

Wow, Im glad to know ours isnt the only one that does this.... Yes, Scooter likes to burrow under the covers, usually just the blanket or comforter (whatever the top layer is) and Im thinking that this behavior came on a little later. He is only 2.5 years old, but I think he didnt papoose Himself until he was almost grown... We call it "Papoose-ing" when he does this, lol.

Pretty kittys, thanks for sharing your pics, all of you.
