Our Household Has a Common Enemy!

With a household as large as ours, you can imagine there are few topics on which we are all of one mind.

But there is one thing we have all agreed must happen (well, all of us but Jen, who thinks we’re nuts):

The flannel gown must go!

The evil flannel nightgown.

Ever since Jen was gifted this gown, she’s been sleeping all through the night. If we do manage to wake her up, she goes right back to sleep.

And in the mornings, she now hits the snooze button on the alarm!

What sort of magic is this?

Even Hissy succumbed momentarily to its' mystical properties.

Jen says it’s just comfy and warm, but I’m beginning to wonder.

It tried to get Buggie, but he was too fast for that gown.

Something must be done! But what to do?

I think I’ll just grab that gown and……. mmmmm……. cozy! Maybe I’ll just take a nap and think about it.

    1. Work! Well, that and she has to let us play outside before she goes to work. And feed us. And scoop the litter boxes. Oh yeah, and write my blog!

  1. Rumpy, Jen is quite lucky that something as simple as a robe will allow her to enter the kingdom of that most illusive of gods, Morpheus. Sleep alludes many Americans, myself among them. I know that you’re the most important member of the household, and that your needs come first, but leave poor bedraggled Jen this one simple gift. The rewards of having a well-rested Human will soon become apparent.

      1. Rumpy, there are many blessings granted dogs. One such is the ability to sleep anywhere, anytime. People have stuff like “Restless Leg Syndrome,” cramps, back pain – not to mention lying awake thinking about all the things we need to get done. After all, for you, a trip to the vet may be no fun, but for Jen, it means changing her schedule, cancelling plans and taking time away from work – not to mention scaring up the cash. Plus, she shares your fear and pain during the actual procedure. No, given the givens – I’d take being a dog, any day. 🙂

  2. Wow! That gown looks very comfortable to sit on!!! We wish that our mom would have the same one! 🙂

  3. Personally, I agree with you. I don’t think we humans are more advanced, just more….whatever! I’m glad Jen has that nightgown. Even you can see it is magic. I think I’m going to look for one for me. I hope that nightgown will help Jen to get the rest she needs and to help her ease her heart some. I know you all try your best to help her, but sometimes, as you know, a good snooze is just what you need.

  4. MOL! I feel the same way about Meowmie Debby’s Blue Blanket. PurrPurrPurrPurr…

  5. Bwahahaha oh Rumpy I have one that acts like a magnet to the cats…I have had to take it off to leave the couch so as not to disturb them all…they are evil/delish 😉 zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Fozziemum xxx

  6. BOL – we think they should invent a dog bed made using flannel nightgowns:)

  7. At first I was worried that Chez Rumpy would show their hatred for the flannel nightie the way my foster dog showed my polka dot undies–by chewing a little hole in them.

    Glad to see you’re at least being polite. 🙂

    Though why Jen needs flannel to keep her warm with so much fur around the house, I couldn’t say.

  8. Ooooohhhhh flannel nightgowns are wonderful, they are soft and snuggly and warm. We think you should sleep on it. You would be doing your Mom Jen a big favor; she would not be late to work. MOL Love, Cali, Andy, Tater and Shelly (C.A.T.S)
