Ernie, what the heck did you do there?!?


This counter’s kinda hard…
so I made me a bed out of these paper towels, Wally.


It looks more like you made a big mess.
I don’t wanna be around when the mom sees this one.

Why?  I’m just making myself comfortable!

  1. We would think the Mommy would want you to be comfortables, Ernie! Heh-heh!
    All of us kittehz are counter surfers, too. Several of us (no names mentioned) are paper towel craft artists.
    Happy Monday, furriends!

  2. actually Wally, although I wouldn’t be happy to come home to find Ernie’s new “bed,” the boyz would probably get in more trouble for resting on the stove. I always fear Diego-san will do that on a hot burner.

    • The mom doesn’t like for us to lay on the stove either, but she hasn’t figured out a way to keep us off. We love laying on it. She’s very careful to make sure that if a burner is hot, we can’t get on the stove. She puts that teapot there on any hot burner so we won’t get hurt.

      • Ooh, we’re always told to stay off the stove, too! We think making a bed of paper towels is INFINITELY better than the stove, anyway. Happy birthday to your dad-person, and enjoy your day!

  3. We think you were very creative! A cat must be comfortable at all times, of course.

  4. Oh Ernie, how could the mom get mad at something so creative and adorable!!! My childhood cat used to make a nest using tissues from the tissue box 🙂

  5. Well, it’s hard to argue with comfy…unless you are a Mom!

  6. That was a clever idea!

  7. ERNIE I think you might need one more or u der you for ultimate comfort
    Hugs Madi your bfff

  8. That is the best idea YET!!!! I will try that immediately!

  9. Our polys have been notorious for this. Who can blame them? It makes sense! ~xo~

  10. Hey, that was a great idea! You are very clever. And the mom won’t know who did that, we are sure. 🙂

  11. Maybe you need to talk your momma into a cat tree in the kitchen, so you can lounge around without being on the stove or paper towels.

  12. Haahahaha well seems that is a wrap for that story Ernie…hey Wally tell mum to put some cake cooling racks on the stove top..they are way uncomfrotable and may stop you..well errr…resting up there 🙂 says me with the leaping lennies all over my benchtops! loves fozziemum xxx

  13. We love to be on the counters and stove too…unfortunately, our paper towels are turned sideways in the holder so we can’t make a comfy bed. I think we will start a petition to change the paper towel holder! Will anyone sign?

  14. Wally Boo does the same thing as you do. She likes lying on the stove top! Uh oh Ernie what did Mom day about the paper towels?

  15. Oh my COD,that is too great Ernie. Well done. That does look very comfy. We are going to have to try that trick. You all have a super day.

  16. We thinks Ernie has a good idea, but we don’t think your human will see it that way, MOL.

  17. You are very clever kitties to get up there. Be safe.

  18. mes thinks yous made a most wonderful bed Ernie, but alas, a human would think that is a mess!

  19. First of all…..YOU ARE ALLOWED ON THE COUNTER????

    We are definitely not getting a fair treatment in this house!!!!

  20. Hahaha, Ernie, looks like you had fun with paper towels and made a really comfy bed 🙂
    I hope you won’t be in trouble!

  21. Now that is an excellent idea for making that very uncomfortable counter much more comfy! Good job, Ernie!

  22. Wally that looks like a very comfortable bed. I’m sure mom will like it to.

  23. What IS IT with cats and paper towels or toilet rolls! I’m quite sure if your Mum-person had named this post it would have been something along the lines of ‘How my cats make me homicidal’ or it would have been if I’d found you in your new bed.

  24. I think Ernie is very resourceful!

  25. What a clever idea : first the fun with the paper towels roll, and then the satisfaction of having a comfy spot ! Purrs

  26. hahahha!!! A paper towel bed??! Love it!
    ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!

  27. I think that was very smart and clever of you to make the countertop less COLD and HARD Ernie….you get points for that!

    Hugs, Sam

  28. Way to go Ernie!!! Wee ‘royalle’ kittiess like our softness an bedss…an wee do like to bee a bit notty rite? 😉
    Mew mew mew…

  29. Now that’s using what’s available to keep us comfy….good going Ernie. As for the stove….I don’t think your stupid Wally…if its hot don’t stick around.


  30. doodz…yea…if yur mom dinna want ya makin a bed outta de towels…. then why did her put em on de counter with a sign by em that reedz ….help yur self wally & ernie….. ♥♥♥

  31. I’m only interested in used paper towels – used to clean up food dat are!

  32. Ooooo Ernie! You’re gonna get in trouble!!!!!!!!!!

  33. I think you’re showing great resourcefulness, Ernie!!

  34. I think that’s…. SMART. When life gives you paper towels, make a warm, comfy bed.


  35. Faraday: *pumps paw in air* YEAHHHHHH, now THAT’s what I’m talkin’ about! Way ta go! Street Art!

  36. Molol! way to be creative, Ernie!
    say.. are hot-crossed Wally buns on the dinner menu? 😉

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Holllie

  37. MOLMOLMOL! We can’t stop laughing at this one, Ernie! That was some smart thinking. The paper towels do look much more comfortable than the counter.

  38. TW wouldn’t be too mad since she only uses the towels to clean up messes or put dirty spoons on—not that Ernie is a dirty spoon or anything.

  39. Ernie, you are so creative! The lady think this is just the cutest. Wally, does your mom get mad when she finds orange hairs on the stove? This morning the big guy complained about smelling some burnt fur after turning on the stove. There’s only one kitty that gets up there. Pierrot!

  40. MOL, Ernie! What a great idea! Our paper towel holder is sideways… do you think you can show us how to do that with one of those, too?

  41. Hmmm, I may have to try that paper towel trick.

  42. Hey, Ernie! We bet that’s not the first time you have done that! Angel Steamer used to do that in our old kitchen until our humans hung the paper towel holder about 6 feet up the wall where she had no access. Wally, we wouldn’t think your mom would be too happy about where you are camped out. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  43. Well done Ernie! Now if you just chew up a few pieces while you’re at it, you’d have a masterpiece, MOL

    You is a brave kitty to be on the stove Wally.

    Have a great week efurrybody!

  44. You are so smart Ernie! We bet your mom is very proud of you!

  45. Pretty clever, Ernie.

  46. Wally, I gotta tell ya, I have a fit when Cody goes up on our stovetop like you are doing! That’s dangerous! I know it isn’t hot but ya gotta watch out Wally!

  47. A kitty with that kind of initiative is a kitty I want on my team, Ernie! Oh wait–I don’t *have* a team. Huh. Well, if I did, you would definitely be on it!

  48. That’s very smart Ernie.

  49. Mum screams at us to get down if we jump on top of the cooker – she makes our ears hurt but as she says not as much as your butts would hurt if the hob was RED HOT.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  50. That paper towel bed is awesome! (Though seeing a cat on the stove did make me a tad nervous.)

  51. A very clever cat ! lol !

  52. YES! The counters are the best resting places huh? Hope you two got some zzzzs in before you got caught.

  53. You’re a GENIUS! Too bad our own paper roll is positioned differently, makes this trick a bit more challenging to imitate…

  54. Very clever, Ernie! We think you’re both brave for being up there like that … if we do that, the humans start talking to someone named, “no no no” and “get down.”

  55. OMC Ernie mommy ’bout spit out hers coffee when she saw dat foto. MOL Not sure hoow yous gunna splain this one to yous mommy. Take cawe and when ya’ see her, Run, run and hide fasst. MOL

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Lexi

  56. Clever boy Ernie.. clever clever boy

  57. Ernie..maybe you could share some of those paper towels with Wally…the stovetop looks a little hard on his fanny, poor guy… ;p

    the critters in the cottage xo

  58. Excuse me Wally, but Ernie’s paper towel pile is not as naughty as you laying on the COOKTOP!!!!

  59. Haha – that just what we’d do (if mum left the paper towels within reach!)

  60. Don’t tell your mom… I think that is so cute..

    Happy birthday to your dad!

  61. We thinks you BOTH are going to be in trouble, because we don’t thinks either of you are suppose to be up there. But that does look comfortable.

    Happy Birthday to your Dad Guy.

  62. Oh my goodness, that just makes me laugh….you two hanging out on the kitchen counter and stove! My grandmother used to say she couldn’t stand the thought of cats on the kitchen counter, and I used to tell her she might not want to come to my house! MOL
