The Calm AFTER The Storm….

Happy Saturday!  Well, we’ve been having something we really needed – RAIN – but when I was wishing for some rain, I wasn’t really being specific enough I don’t think…….I should have SPECIFICALLY wished for quiet rain.  Not noisy, stormy, wind blowing, lightning every two seconds, thunder continuously rumbling rain.  So it’s my fault………

It’s my fault that I spent the entire day Friday sleeping.  Not that I minded doing that you know – after all, you’re talking to The King Of Naps here – but because I was awake most of Thursday night – I slept most of Friday.  A guy’s gotta get his beauty sleep.  It’s not easy maintaining my lustrous coat with it’s red and white stripeyness!  It takes REST!

We call this the Grandma Chair - Sam thinks it's a great nap spot.

…..zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…..

So you’ll forgive me I’m sure if you get a fairly short blog from yours truly this fine Saturday morning right?  We had MORE storms during the night and in fact it’s raining right now but at least it’s quiet…..that means I’ll be doing the same thing I did yesterday for most of today.

Hey – a guy can’t get too many catnaps……………am I right???????

Kitty hugs, Sleepy Sam :D

  1. We had some storms through here last night – but I was mostly sleeping right through them! Hope you get caught up on the rain and the naps today, Sammy! Our farmers sure did need a quiet rain – I hope they got enough!
    Hugs, Linda

    • I know what you mean Miss Linda…..I feel so bad for the farmers – especially the guys growing corn. It’s been a BAD BAD summer for them. Our rain has stopped and the sun’s back out but at least we DID get some rain. Hope you enjoy your weekend!!! :D :D

  2. Well, Sammy, your Mom’s been trying to send some of that rain our way, but for some reason, the rain is avoiding our county! I’m sorry the storms kept you awake; maybe you’ll have quiet rain for awhile. That’s much better!
    Happy Saturday from your Sundae.

    • Hi Sundae! I hear that you finally got your rain – it just took longer to GET there than my Mom wanted it to! :D I also hear that no matter how stormy it is outside, you’re one brave girl sitting on your window seat watching the whole thing. I’m glad you’re not a scaredy cat about thunder like I am!!!

      Kitty Hugs and love,

    • Hi Texas! I do know some dogs and cats get full of energy when a storm’s on the way – I’d rather be like that then HATE the noise like I do. :( BUT, I certainly have plenty of energy AFTER the storm goes away and I can run around again!

      Happy Saturday to you too!

  3. My kitty niece, Sundae, and I would both like some of that rain…even with the noise. Dry as a bone for the last couple of days. But good napping weather when it’s a QUIET rain!
    Hugs,

    • Oh I agree Miss June……nothing better for snoozing than a quiet and gentle rain. Our rain has gone away and the sun’s back out so I guess we’ll be “cooking the grass” again!

      YUCK.

    • Hi Mr. Pit….well, it WAS raining but now it’s stopped and the old sun is back out in full force. We were GLAD to get some rain though since we’re eight inches BELOW average for our area this summer (so far). Maybe we’ll get some more before the grass gets BROWN again???? Happy Weekend!

    • Hi Miss Caren – guess what…….the rain’s now gone and the sun’s out. Not sure if we’ll get more rain but if we do – I’m hoping for QUIET stuff so thanks for telling the powers that be that “poor Sammy needs REST!!!!”…………

  4. We had our first *all day* rain (it’s still coming down here), and I mean the good soaking kind, yesterday, Whoa! It’s not rained like that in these parts since…May! No exaggeration.
    None of your drama that you describe though…that does make it tough for a guy to sleep. I hope things are much quieter for you and you can make up for those hours you lost!
    Happy Saturday!

    • Hi Miss D……I’m doing a lot of napping today since I lost so much sleep. My Dad’s also napping but it can’t be because he lost sleep – – — Mom says he snores right through the storms! Hope you enjoy your QUIET rain there!

  5. Please keep that rain on the other side of the ocean. We (Bowie & H.) are not interested… We’re having a great time in the garden.

  6. Ohhhh! Boomers and great smashing and crashing of lightenings! We has had lots of THAT this summer! So much so that my hairy slobbery sister Bob has quit hiding and sleeps through it. A whole bunch of trees went down in the last storm and there are chainsaws going everywhere!

    • Hi Nellie Bellie! I’m getting in lots of snores naps today trust me. I wake up long enough for a slurp of water and a quick treat gobble then BACK to sleep I go! I hate all that chain saw noise almost as much as I do thunder! I hope you can ignore the racket and get some beauty sleep (not that you need it since you’re already BEAUTIFUL!).

    • Hi Sparkle….we’ve barely made a dent in our “wet deficit” around here but something is better than nothing for sure – I just could do without the NOISY part of the whole thing. Can’t have everything I suppose!

  7. Oh Sammy… don’t blame yourself. When the mama of nature decides to storm up the place, she does it whether anyone else likes it or not, I think. But how smart of you to take advantage of the situation and get in a few extra winks. purrs

    • Hi Nerissa….it’s that old thing my Mom is always saying “when the world hands you lemons, make lemonade” when it comes to storms. They’re my excuse to hide away in a quiet spot and SNOOZE!
