The Kid Sage Loses It

J Lo 4

I know, I  know…hard to believe The Kid Sage hasn’t already lost ‘it’ living here with me, right?  MOL!!!

Well, I just have to tell you all that it sure does keep down my need to be involved in the housework now that The Kid is around. I have to spend way less time snoopervising all the folding, bed making and whatnot.

The Kid Sage just gets right in there to make sure it is all done correctly…while I always stood afar (sometimes even asleep) she is an active participant.

Here you can see that she is helping Mom L by making sure all Mom L’s t-shirts are folded properly and laid orderly in the drawer.(hover over photo to view captions)

Then she waits in a semi comatose state…one eye open… at the ready to leap to assist Dad P in his weekly chore of ‘changing the cat human bedding’.

She first must inspect the ‘stripping’ of the bed sheets…she keeps track of the very itty bitty stains that might be left when ‘some cats’ nibble their morning treats on the sheets and perhaps occasionally leave a teeny little cat spit on the bed sheets…not often mind you! But it is The Kid Sage’s job to make note of those and point them out to Dad P.

Next…she must inspect the fresh bed sheets…making sure that all the wrinkles are out…

And if once over doesn’t get those wrinkles in shape…she goes after them again…and again…and…well, you get it, right?

Finally, she forces herself to remain on the bottom sheet while the fresh top sheet is placed on the bed…such a dreadful job to remain under there to make sure no wrinkles return…heh…heh…

Finally, The Kid Sage has earned her reward…a nice long afternoon nap on the freshly made bed…complete with pillows…and her favorite Nip N Nap Mat.



The Kid Sage works hard at her snoopervising duties…I must say I am proud of her effort…leaves me to go about my playing with Mom L and taking my requisite 43 1/4 naps per day…

  4. Kid Sage is hilarious! He’s like an army major inspecting the bed making and ready to do judo on any creases that aren’t ironed out. BOL!!
    And so stealth too, under the sheet! *raises one eyebrow*

    Hi there, Savvy!

    Sage is totally serious about her snoopervising duties! We loved how she gave those wrinkles the old what for. 🙂

    Hugs to you all.

    You must be a great help to your pawrents, Sage! Sampson likes to help with the bed making in our house. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it…

  11. It’s great to see you kitties helping out your humans so much! My kitties love to help me too – especially with changing the bed sheets. I do get help folding clothes too though. Sometimes they will even help me as I tidy up the living room.

    That is darn nice of The Kid to take over some of your responsibilities. You are training her well. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    Good job of snoopervision Sage, well done ! Purrs

  16. Ya know, I am not completely sure here, but I think she might have just missed one wrinkle!! MOLMOL xx

  17. I especially like how Sage tamps down the shirts, makin’ sure they fit in the drawer properly.


    PS. How long is a quarter of a nap? Just wonderin’… purrs

  18. Could we rent Kid Sage for a week please! I’m stuck with doing all those things myself, and It’s a lot of work! you are lucky Savvy.

  19. I laughed like crazy at 0:18, what a funny little bed maker!

  20. hannahandlucy on said:

    Wow you are a quick bed maker Sage. Hannah often helps our Mum by putting the clean sheets on although by the time she’s finished helping Mum is quite exhausted!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  21. awwww Sage!!!! You are just adorable!!! I loved those videos!
    ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!

  22. Savvy, I did not realize that cats were so good at un-making and making the bed. Ma’s bed surely could use the talented paws of one Kid Sage, I can tell you that! BOL

  23. We are very impressed with Sage’s snoopervising activities, we got tired just watching her. Paws crossed J-Lo gets a home soon.

  24. Mags Corner on said:

    Sweet Savannah we can see you have trained sweet Sage quite well. She does a mighty fine job taking care of the clothes in the drawer and the bed making so you can enjoy all those nice undisturbed naps. Good job!! Hugs and nose kisses

  25. Sage takes her work very seriously. No wrinkles allowed! I’m glad this frees you up for some serious napping.

    Love and licks,

  26. Well done with the bed duty snoopervising Sage!!! I used to do that when I was younger – these days I just sit on the floor and watch (and giggle but don’t tell her I said that) while Mom changes the bed.

    Hugs, Sammy

  27. Dang, The Kid really has taken to doing her chores quite nicely! Thanks for sharing sweet J-Lo!!!

  28. What would those hoomans do without you to help?!

    Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil

  30. Sage, you are a busy beaver! So glad you get to have that well earned catnap on the clean sheets 😉

  31. You’ve trained her well Savy!!

  32. I know how difficult it is for cats to fit in enough napping time – I’m glad Sage is helping out!

  33. Pawsome job snoopervisin Sage!

  34. mistletoeandhitch on said:

    Hitch likes to make sure all the towels are put away correctly. If they don’t meet his strict inspection, he knocks them off the closet shelves the drags as many as possible down the hallway. Imagine if we had to endure improperly fold towels!

  35. That’s some great help you have there, Savy. You must teach us how to get the kittens to do the hard stuff around our house. MOL!

    Happy Tuesday!

  36. Love to see that my little one is just making sure I do it correctly with the bedsheets – I was feeling a little eerie when I thought she might have seen some itsybitsyteeny spider she kept chasing while I got the covers on …

  37. Claudia on said:

    Loved your post and can relate 100% to these “cat inspections” to make sure everything is up to their standards!!! Claudia

  38. Sage is a very busy bed maker!

  39. * HELPLESS GIGGLES * Oooh man she really does take care doesn’t she. Bless you Sage. AND Thank you Savannah for pawing it forward about J-Lo We are not giving up hope, she is a beuaty and deserves the BEST of homes.

    with admiration
