Oui Oui and The Girl as kittens.
As a young kitty, I loved scratching away while I was on my back. Of course, the bed was the object of my scratching! The mom would come home from work to find huge amounts of stuffing stretched across the floor. Soon we kitties could climb into the netting and sleep there. It was like a large kitty hammock. So snuggly and comfy! Those were really the days!

Eventually I dug holes all the way through to the top of the mattress. In no time there were huge springs sticking out of the top. While this didn't bother us kitties much, well in fact, not at all, the mom had to resort to sleeping across the lower part of the bed while her legs pointed up to the headboard.

One day, some men took the old beds (I had been working on The Girl's bed too) and brought new ones. I set to work right away!
But, I couldn't believe what the mom did! She came home with large sheets of wood, and she put them under the box springs and mattresses! In vain did I roll on my back and scratch at the wood. I tried! I tried really hard! Even in the middle of the night, waking the mom with the sound of my claws on wood.
This is how I walk across the bed.
Sadly, my sharp nails were no match for the wood and finally I gave up.
These days, I have my beloved cardboard, but no beds to scratch.
Ok, I give the first round of The Bed Wars to the mom. That's ok. We kitties own the night, and there are daily breakfasts to wake up for. You know we aren't going to give in THAT easily!
