Friends on Friday


Our very special kitty friend from across the big pond, Ginger Jasper, is not feeling well. His Mum and Dad are very worried about him.




Please send some good thoughts and prayers his way. We are hoping to hear some good news today. C'mon, GJ. Feel better, pal.




Another of our very good friends, Pip, is having some problems since his family moved to their new home. Although he is very happy at the new place, his family put his very comfy sofa in the basement while they wait to get a new one. Poor Pip is so lost without his sofa. He is staging an Operation Occupy Your Couch movement. You can read about it HERE.



To show our support for Pip's plight, we too are going to stage a protest by occupying the couch here too.




Ciara is a pro at occupying the couch, AND she knows how to get very comfy.



And she never needs to worry about any humans stealing the couch because . . .


. . . Thunder and Lightning are ready and waiting for their turn in the protest.



Some of you may remember this photo from an older post.


With those demon eyes, who would possibly think about moving the sofa to the basement?

Will you join in the protest and occupy your sofa?

Have a great weekend.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

Poor Pip,,,,Scrappy is on his team. She's on her chair as I type this. Have a great weekend...demon eyes and all!

SissySees said...

Gasp!! Sissy will be all over Pip's plight. She let it be known that she finds the bed at the beach house far too hard for her comfort and she and the Knight fought over the prime spot on their sofa the whole time.

I am not allowed on the couch but the cats have agreed to participate in the occupy movement.

We have our paws crossed for GJ here. ~Fenris

rottrover said...

Our paws are crossed for GJ as well. While we occupy the couch frequently, this morning we were being especially cute and cuddly. Of course when we heard mom coming in with the beast, we scrambled off asap!! (hmmm, note to self from mom.. new training tool??)

Jake of Florida said...

No problem -- not only do I, Just Harry, occupy the couch throughout the day and the evening, but if no humans are around, I dig behind the cushions and the pillows and make a nice comfy nest. I'm on it!!!!

Just Harry (The Jakester prefers chairs and benches, so I have free reign!)

Maggie Mae said...

We just came from GJ's place, we sure is prayin' fur hims to get better. :) Mom and dad won't let us on da couch so all we can do is support Pip in spirit!

Great protest pictures. No one in your house would DARE put the couch in the basement...or anywhere other than in the middle of the action.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra, Bella & Roxy

We hope your kitty friend is feeling beeter soon.

Max the Quilt Cat said...

OMC... you guys got that sofa covered every which way.... Very nice job and you will definitely win the battle of Occupy Sofa.... I know you will.

We just came from GJ's and no change. Sending all of them our strongest purrs.

THank you so much.. I love you all.. HUgs

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Hi Everybuddy, we went to visit our friend Ginger Jasper too. We love him to bits and hope he is well soon.

We aren't allowed on the couch but sometimes Rory sits his bottom on it until mum sees him hehehe. He looks funny.

Have a great weekend. No worries, and love, Stella and rory

Good move on the couch. Tommy occupies his couch on an ongoing basis anyway...

We're crossing our paws and sending lots of purrs to GJ too. We hope he gets well soon!

Poor Pip! We'll join the protest too!

Remington said...

GJ is in our thoughts and prayers.... I certainly hope Mr. Pip gets a couch soon....you certainly look comfy on yours. Have a fun weekend!

KB said...

Ah, poor Pip. I'm so glad that your Sibes have taken up his cause. Your Sibes sure look good while occupying the couch!

Our dogs are not allowed on the couch, although R sneaks onto it sometimes. I don't dare allow them up there for even one photo because years of training might go down the drain :)

K and R think that their plight is as bad as Pip's...

Reilly / Denny Cowspotdogs said...

As soon as I learn to jump up on the couch I will be in support of Pip. Reilly already knows how and he enjoys it now....so he will support him. We send puppy prayers to Miss Ginger too

Gus said...

Both sofas in this house are currently occupied, and we have invited the security dog down the street to join us by occupying the futon. Solidarity forever!

Mr. Pip said...

Oh thank you SO MUCH for joining my fight for couch justice! I am pretty sure the demon eyes might scare that old couch right out of the basement!

Your pal, Pip

Mr. Pip said...

P.S: Praying for Ginger Jasper.

mayziegal said...

Stella said...

After a lifetime of dogs, I have given up on having a couch. I have a living room with three comfy chairs in it. The cat occupies one, and I the other, but so far, Stella doesn't see herself as a chair dog. Too bad, I say!

Kisses,
Jo, Stella and Ziva Zophia

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Well, right now we are occupying the area rug, but I do my fair share of couch occupying. Steve isn't a couch boy, but as you saw earlier, he is very talented at occupying the bed.

Kat

We'll keep our paws crossed for GJ, too. Abby has already submitted her Solidarity photo to Mr. Pip. One dog, one couch! One couch per dog! Hmm.. we need a better slogan.

Jed & Abby

Mango said...

I am sure Mr. Pip appreciates your solidarity. Getting points for occupying the couch is awesome.

I visited Ginger Jasper and am sending good thoughts.

Slobbers,

FiveSibesMom said...

Our five have joined in with your and Pip's protest of the sofa...they now fully occupy it and only sometimes leave room for us...that include the loveseat and two recliners too!

jgaffneycards said...

I believe it is every dogs right to have a place on the couch and to ride in a car with the window open,

WOW Lighting is so big now, you'd never tell hes a pup looking at the photo of him and thunder on the floor, he seems to have gotten over his goofy paws,

love Ciara on the couch too, how can you resist, id have too rub her belly everytime she lay like that, :)

tula said...
