Don't Let the Bedbugs Bite!

Our personality infused cat, Gracie, has a very odd but endearing ritual we've come to notice. At night before we go to sleep, Seth and I will usually read for a few minutes. During this time, Gracie is usually sitting down on the floor somewhere, roaming the apartment looking for trouble, or participating in her normal late night cat behaviors.

As soon as the lights are turned off and Seth and I get into sleeping position, there's Gracie. Like clockwork we'll hear a little "meow" sound as she jumps on the bed. Then she strolls across our chests and stands there looking down at us, with her Batman silouette. She'll purr very loudly and then as if she's tucking us in for the night, will either bump our heads will her nose or kiss us goodnight with a lick on the forehead. With that, she'll retreat to the end of the bed and go to sleep.

We've only noticed this routine recently, though I wonder how long it's been since she started this. It's something we've come to expect and if one day she forgets to tuck us in, I'm sure we won't sleep a wink.
