    Piglet loves to play with anything moving underneath blankets...she goes into instant attack mode when that happens! :Cool:

    haha, Snuffie does this as well to either get under the covers or because she is in attack mode. She also does the kick thing with her back legs. We call it her "Kangaroo kick" because its with both feet at the same time and she will do it like 6 or 7 times in a row. Its halarious! She does it also when she is trying to get between Jimmy and I in bed, she Kangaroo kicks me to make me scoot over. MEAN A$$!!!! LOL:LOL:

    LOL So much personality these cats have ! Stella has her spot in the middle between my boyfriend and I. She tucks in next to me, though. Fortunately she isn't violent at bed time. It's our hairy kitty that is! She'll walk on to the bed purring and she will bite whatever part of your body is exposed. I call them love bites since she's purring, but still! OUCH!

    At least its the blankets and not your face and throat! Sophie nurses on my face/cheek while kneading on my neck. I take responsibility for not stopping this behavior when its not painful- BUT - most times I'm half asleep and can't wake up enough except to roll over but she follows me.

    :LOL::LOL: I think this is exactly why Jimmy told me I could get another kitty. He is secretly plotting to make it "his" cuz he gets jealous that Snuffie follows my commands and cuddles with me more. hahaha,,She knows who her mama is!!!!:LOL:

    LOL! :LOL: If Stella happens to get up at night to go potty or chase Izzy, she'll still migrate to my side. It doesn't matter if my boyfriend picks her up and places her under the covers. She will scoot, crawl and walk right over to my side. Every time! I don't say anything, though. I pretend like I'm sleeping. :LOL:
    They are such sweethearts, aren't they?

      My 7month old Morticia does the same thing, liking, and bitting off fleece chunks, and even dragging the blanket from her nap spot to the middle of the living room. Still have no idea why she does this???

      Funny, I was just going to post this as a question as well. Rupert has been grooming the polar fleece & fuzzy blankets here too and he will bite the blanket very casually. I think it may be a little bit of a teething thing b/c one of his teeth came out the other day when he was biting the blanket. As for the licking and grooming of the blanket, I dunno, wishful thinking?! :Hysterical: :LOL: :Hysterical: :LOL: :Hysterical: :LOL: :Hysterical:

      Pedda will bite kick and wrestle with the blanket but only when we're playing Pounce Cat (that's me wiggling my hands and feet under them). But she does it only during play time, which is good for my sleep.

      The only time I've seen Choppy bite one of his blankets (when there are no feet moving around underneath it) is when he's...erm...having some "alone time" :Wink::Pudently:with it, lol!

      He's especially "friendly" with his fleece blankets (guess fleece is his thing!:Surprise:)...so, every now and then he'll start with the pressy paws, get his groove on, and then he always ends up biting the blanket...I have no idea why (I mean, who really understands the mysteries of love anyway, lol)!!

      You are not alone!!! Sherlock bites blankets. I thought he was the only "angry kitty". LOL!!! He has done that since I first met him and he bit at my shirt :) Dont know why. I imagine it feels good? He does the same with his fuzzy toys. Ahh the mystery that is these sphynx kitties :)

      Pander does this every day but he isn't grooming the blankets. He does it when he's in attack/ninja/high energy mode. He runs around the bed like a manic pouncing on the blanket, chewing and shaking it with his head (like a dog) rolling in it, playing peek a boo and hide and seek with it, clawing it, trying to kill it. It's crazy. Doesn't matter what kind of blanket either. It's just like one giant easy mouse target for him. My other kitty tries to join the fun but just straight up doesn't understand the game.
