Jackhammer on my head

wackiness

I recently got back from a big Lindy Exchange and have much to talk about.

But for the moment, let me raise the unique issue of a Cranium-Fetish’d Cat.

When sleeping over at some random girl’s place (more on that later), I suddenly felt something warm and fuzzy attach itself to my cranium, whereupon I heard loud jackhammering noises. Attempting to move my head was futile (the cat was stuck), and forcibly lifting the cat resulted in the feline repositioning herself on the back of my neck where her “purring” was like a heavy vibrating furry dust brush, though I admit I haven’t actually slept with a heavy vibrating furry dust brush to make a fair comparison. Anyway, is this cat normal, or did my otherwise charming hostess happen to raise a mutant creature?

    Consider yourself lucky!  I have had cats as housemates for the last 30 years, and a couple of them have slept on my head or across my throat from time to time.  I actually enjoy it for a while, so long as I can still breathe.

    My first cat decided, at one point after I had her for many years, to stop sleeping in the middle of my back and to start sleeping against my head, on my pillow.  I got her a pillow of her very own which I kept at the head of the bed which she used for about a year.  Then, she suddenly moved, permanently, the foot of the bed.  I never could figure out why she behaved as she did.  She was a cat, after all.

What do you think?
