A Day Of Rest!

Standard

Happy Sunday Peeps!

I just bet it won’t surprise you all one bit to know that yesterday was a day of rest for this old guy.  What you might not believe (but it’s true) is that I literally stayed in my afghan tent from 11AM until 4:30PM.  Mom kept putting her hand into my tent to check and make sure I was breathing (!) because I hadn’t budged but HONESTLY – I was exhausted after THE VET VISIT.

A guy can’t get TOO much rest….right?

It really was a great day for napping though ANYWAY because we started the day with light rain……and it was cloudy for much of the day.  Byt he time the sun finally came out I was well into my nap time.  I wouldn’t have known if it was raining or sunny or snowing because all I knew is that I was comfy in my tent.

This morning of course is Sunday newspaper day.  Different kind of tent.  Newspaper tent courtesy of Dad. 

Sam's a fan of the Sunday newspaper.....

Yay! Sunday paper day!

Mom and I have been putting our heads together (when I’m awake of course!) to come up with an idea for a contest on my blog.  I’ve won so many contests I’m thinking it’s high time I HAD a contest of my own so look for some news about it this coming week!!!

Meanwhile, I’m off to finish up my Sunday breakfast.  Then, barring any unforeseen circumstances, chances are fairly good I’ll be napping some more.  At my age I need all the naps I can get (Mom just said she feels the same way……HAHAHA).

Yum! Whatever this is, it’s not bad!

    • Hi Pix! I’ve missed you! I hope you’re staying cool under the big old trees and getting some nice breezes through your pretty yard…..every little bit helps. It’s hot hot hot isn’t it?! Thank heavens it’s nice and shady in my tent!

      Fall – we’re ready for it here too!

    • Hi Cody! I’m feeling a little better today…..still “camping out” (in) but at least I’m a little more MOBILE than I was yesterday. Mom’s happy about that – she worries about me ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL the time – I think Mommies do that a lot!

      Enjoy your Sunday…..

    • Hi Miss Trish! I hope you and your doggies are enjoying your Sunday as much as I’m enjoying mine. I’m continuing with my “NAP-A-THON” today – seems us old guys need a lot more catching up time after a vet visit than we USED to when we were young whippersnappers!

  1. It’s always a good day to nap but especially if it’s rainy/cloudy. And no one knows if the sun shines when you’re deep in a nap. Happy Sunday!
    Hugs,

    • Hi Mollie! OF COURSE there will be prizes and it won’t be a guessing thing like my Tuesday Teasers…..I have some ideas and Mom and I are giving it some thought so don’t you worry – it will be fun and it won’t matter WHO wins, they will get a surprise from ME. I’m excited about your “HOT SEAT” interviews too – can’t wait to see how that goes…..what a fun idea!

    • Hi Mr. Pit! I DO enjoy the Sunday paper – especially the comic section. That’s the one I always get my Dad to make my newspaper tent out of. My favorite is Garfield (hmmmm….wonder why?!?!?!?!).

      Happy Sunday!

    • Hey Doggy! I know I can always count on you to TRY anyway…..but this won’t be like the Teaser thing with the photo…what it WILL be, I’m not sure (Mom and I are exchanging ideas!) but there will be prizes and it will be fun – I guarantee it! Hey – saw on your blog that you had a nice BATH – I bet you feel (and smell) better huh??? 😀 😀 😀

    • Hi Nellie Bellie! You know, I’ve been glad to hear that older kitties like me DO sleep a lot. I thought maybe I was just a big old lazy bum but either that’s not true, or we’re ALL big lazy bums! 😉 You’ve been so busy working on the Cat-O-Lympics you need a lot of rest though – so nap away sweet Nellie! 😀

  4. I feel the same way about naps, Sammy. You could win a napping marathon. Some of the Miao Bros, especially Mani and Lotus, are excellent marathon nappers too, capable of napping continuously from breakfast to supper.

    Your newspaper tent looks fun. I should make one for Sprocket.

    • Oh I bet Sprocket would love a newspaper tent – or even a pile of tissue like I do! By the way, my Mom and I spent some time on Miao Chronicles yesterday going back to the first posts about little Sprockers and how he came to be a Miaoling. Poor little guy – but even though all he went through with his operation, he still had that “sprocketty” look in his eye….a very special kitty.

      Kitty Hugs to ALL the Miaos!

    • Hi Sparkle………I know lots of people no longer get the paper AND the Washington Post is available online but my stubborn, old-fashioned parents insist on getting the PAPER version of the Sunday Post. It’s not as BIG as it used to be but it still makes a nice tent! 😀 😀 😀

  6. Hi, Sammy,
    Once again, I’m late commenting because my Motor parents were at the beach. Believe me, ever since they’ve been home, I’ve been telling them about leaving me all alone. But I gave in and decided to be a lap kitty for Motor Mommy!
    Glad you caught up on your rest after that vet’s visit; they’re so tiring…
    love, Sundae

    • I love that your Greek gods stories have their own “home”…..have you thought of a “title” for the page? You could have some fun with it….I really love the stories – a lot – incredibly creative.

    • Indeed – three days of napping seemed to do the trick. I’m a lot perkier this morning and instead of this kind of face 😦 I have this kind of face 🙂 – Mom’s happy too.

    • Hi Clowie!! Well, Sammy Hugs are ALWAYS available but no – this time the prize is TOYS! TOYS! TOYS! YAY…….we all like new toys right? This morning I’m feeling better than I have since the vet visit so while I’m sure I will be napping a lot, probably not quite as much as I have been…which will make my Mom happy since she’s been worried about me. 😀

    • You’re right Savannah…I think we like routine…and I think most cats DO (except maybe kittens – they are spur of the moment oriented little things!!). Naps are wonderful all on their own but they come in handy for “escape” too don’t they!!
