I never feel these little ones. Or if I did, I blamed it on the cats making the bed shake.

EEEWWW………. @ ChampagneKitty !
The only thing worse than cats on your bed is cats on the kitchen counter tops or on the dining room table.
You do know where those cute little fuzzy feet have been right ?
Standing in a litter box where they poop and pee !
YIKES !!!!!!!
