And heres why:
The cat you see is Rory. The lump under the covers, to her left, is Mario.
Mario has decided, once again, that he wants to be under the covers. He can't jump well, so he climbs. This is my side of the bed. This is actually the side of the bed.
During the night, he will be there and she will be on the other side of my legs. Both as close as possible to me. I cannot move. I can't change position in bed.
If I move my legs, Mario will claw at them. It's a little easier to move Rory, but two seconds later she's back in position.
I spent an hour last night fighting with Mario. I kicked him off of the bed numerous times. I positioned myself at the very edge of the bed so he couldn't climb up. He walked around to the other side of the bed, walked up the steps and over to me. I'd put him up in the window where he sometimes ends up. He wouldn't stay. When he stayed by my feet on the bedspread, he'd make his way up to my side and start pulling at the covers.
Yeah, me and Mario, man, we had a fight last night.
