Oh look. The mom got up and left. This chair’s all mine now.

Oh yeah…she left it nice and warm. Think I’ll make myself comfortable.

Ernie! What are you doing? I was sitting there!

Hey! You got up, mom, so that makes this chair free game. You move…you lose.

But I was only gone for a minute.

That was one minute too long. Sorry…not sorry, mom. Now if you don’t mind…I’d like to take a nap.

You’re such a tough guy, Ernie. Guess I’ll go find another place to sit.

  1. I don’t see the problem, Ernie! The chair was free, so it was fair game. And already warmed…purrfect!

  2. Ernie dude, well done, we do exactly the same thing here!!! MOL

    And dude, mew guys won the birthday giveaway and we need your address to send the goodie bag too, if mew can email us that would be pawesome! XOX

  3. MOL we all know that any chair really belongs to US!

  4. A minute is like an hour here. If a human’s butt leaves a chair, it is occupied within a nano-second at our house. Good job moving in Ernie. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

  5. That is how it goes around here too- you snooze, you lose.

  6. My human makes me move to the side – rule around here is I have to share if she thinks she needs the chair. Which is no fair. And all of that totally unintentionally rhymed!

  7. If you move even for a minute, you lose…that’s the rule 🙂
    It’s a very comfy looking chair. Enjoy some nap, Ernie!

  8. You lost your place mom. That’s the rules for kitties. I so remember.

    Have a purrfect day and week. My best to your chair-less mom. ♥

  9. diego-san knows my favorite place to lie down to watch TV. he’ll often beat me to the spot but eventually will relinquish it after a while because his favorite spot to lie while I watch tv is my chest.

  10. She was just getting it warm for you Ernie! I’m sure she can find a nice sun puddle on the floor! MOL

  11. That’s the rule here too. Also, cats can sit on a chair currently occupied by a human and try to squeeze her out.

  12. You move, you lose. Them’s the rules.

  13. That’s the rule in this house too:)

  14. It’s fair game, the chair was free, right ? Purrs

  21. We agree. If one leaves the warm chair….the chairs up for grabs.


  22. yup, you move you lose! good one Ernie! though sometimes our mom ignores that rule and sits back down and squishes us out of the way. how rude!

  23. Seems fair. She should have said she wanted her chair back before she left, and even then, you can’t waste all that good heat.

  32. That’s certainly how it works here, too, Ernie!

  33. I know Mom can’t get up in the winter without me slipping into her place.

  34. You are lucky, mum moves me out of the way to sit, even when there are other places to sit. For her to sit. I made my choice!

  35. All is fair in love and empty chairs. Yoo snooze, yoo lose!

  36. Floki is our resident chair Stealer. He also takes my spot on the bed.

  37. That’s the rule at our house!
