Should I just accept that this blanket is no longer mine?

I have (?had) a lovely snuggly blanket. There are three others in the house which are the same but different colours. Dgirl cat has decided that my blanket is her blanket. She will walk past the others to get to mine. It is deep purple and she is black so she is virtually camouflaged against it. She will sit on it even when I am underneath it - she is not a lap cat by nature and isn't madly keen on me, it is just when the blanket is there. She then gets annoyed when I move/ take blanket with me to bed. Should I just accept that it is hers or is there any hope that I can wean her onto a different blanket?

There is no yours, only hers.

It's her blanket now. I've lost two this way, and a dressing gown.

Wait? Your car still allows you in the house?

What is your secret?

Buy yourself a new blanket.

It has been....claimed *moves arms about mysteriously*

Deep down inside you know you have lost this blanket, accept it and move on, it's the only way.

Er hello
Blanket will not be yours again till you post kitty pics.

TizzyDongue Mon 23-Jan-17 21:59:41

Is this even a question? There is no question; the blanket is her.

<cackles at insanity of OP thinking otherwise>

Mine has stolen my Joules dressing gown sad

Does anyone remember Red Dwarf?
The scene where The Cat is spraying g everything and claiming it all?

Its pretty much what cats do. We have an armchair we can't sit in anymore, let alone a blanket.

I think my MN is playing up. There's no picture of cat?

That can't be right.

OP - buy yourself a new blanket and then weep with frustration as she claims them both. 'Tis the way of the pussycat.

Lorelei76 Mon 23-Jan-17 22:03:56

Wow, hollin, they are making them small these days grin

Our rabbit has been stealthily sneaking DD's teddies down to her cage after returning them to DD's they disappeared again we have now admitted they are her friends now grin

Here's a pic of her guarding them

Accept it and look on the bright side - I bought a lovely new armchair, the cat claimed it as his and now I'm lucky to get a look in. I'm relegated to the old sofa.

hollinhurst84 Mon 23-Jan-17 22:14:29

His quilt. Also his blanket
I drew the line very firmly when I bought a black sheer v expensive robe for a photoshoot and found him napping on it
Also the spare bed and the feather duvet are his hmm

Yes maybe I am naive to think it would be possible, sounds though as if she might adopt the new one too. She is giving me an evil look because I moved her onto different blanket. Is no point in taking photo on my/her blanket because you can't see her. She hasn't learnt that in this house camouflage is a bad thing because it means people try to sit on her quite often. She was too busy getting to the front of the cute and fluffy queues so her brainpower is somewhat lacking.

Wolfiefan Mon 23-Jan-17 22:17:25

Scruffy I do. This is mine and this is mine and aaalllll this is mine! grin
OP. You have a cat. Nothing will ever be yours again.

TizzyDongue Mon 23-Jan-17 22:18:28

That grumpy look makes me all swooning and gushy.

HemanOrSheRa Mon 23-Jan-17 22:23:03

The blankets are all hers. All of them. It's just the purple one that she fancies right now. Until she doesn't.

She has a very cute grumpy face smile.

We have a very limited time with items of comfort in our homes, as these will, I'm afraid, be claimed by THE CAT(S).

This evening, I have been turfed out of my lovely cosy fireside chair & then the sofa by cat no 1. The armchair I'm currently sitting on is being eyed up by cat no 2, so, it's only a matter of time.

Tonight, my king size bed will be taken over by 2 of my 3 cats and I will have to make do with a tiny slither, with my legs at very awkward angles, for the night.

CatBallou2 Mon 23-Jan-17 22:32:57

Beautiful girl, should.

Londonjam Mon 23-Jan-17 22:36:27

Sweet kitties 😻

For Max it's more about the legs

Weedsnseeds1 Mon 23-Jan-17 22:39:04

Everything is his. Everything. Except for the things that have actually been purchased for his specific delectation and comfort. He doesn't want those.

Lorelei76 Mon 23-Jan-17 22:40:18

Look at her face
She will take all the blankets, they are too good for humans who can only use sackcloth.

YesItsMeIDontCare Mon 23-Jan-17 22:54:22

Oh OP, how could you not willingly give up the blanket for such a beautiful puss?

As for not being able to see her - here's a picture of my utterly adored but now sadly departed Harlequin on his bed.
