So here I am – at a very early age – learning the fine art of lap-napping as ALL cats eventually learn. I didn’t quite have my positioning right, but Dad didn’t mind. I just kind of slid down from lying across his waist but he was just happy to have me there in his recliner no matter what! Anyway, we cats are truly MASTERS of the fine art of napping. I can find some really great spots to catch a nap. I have some window perches Mom and Dad put in some of the windows that are great, but I also like falling asleep in the sunshine on a bed or the couch and now that I’m “a cat of a certain age” I have been known to nod off out on the front porch while Mom’s sitting in the rocker keeping an eye on me.
Mom’s got a lot of pictures of me napping – why? Maybe because I do a lot of that around here….but that’s just because I am so happy to be part of my family and feel so relaxed that I frequently nod off. It takes a lot of energy to be a cat….so we have to recharge our batteries more frequently than humans do. As soon as I wake up from a good nap, I stretch my legs, give a BIG yawn, and run off to find some mischief to get into. Life is great – especially after a good nap.
