On a chilly winter day, a sunny stair feels just yummy!
Following the sun……we all do it don’t we?! Move from one window to the next or one piece of furniture to the next – even one spot on the rug to the next – – all so we can enjoy a few minutes in the sun. Especially in the winter when it’s too cold to go outside. Inside sunbathing is the way to go.
I guess on the stairs has always been one of my favorite places. When I was a kitten I was too little to climb the stairs – I was pretty small when my parents adopted me. But I soon learned how and before you know it I was flying all over the place up/down/up/down – stairs were so cool – especially with carpet on them! Sometimes my legs would get ahead of me though and I’d wind up rolling down the last few stairs. That wasn’t so bad unless it happened on the basement stairs where there IS no soft carpet!!
Another good sunny spot is in the library and yet another is on the guest room bed. After twelve years I’ve learned exactly what time of day to be in a certain spot so I can enjoy the sun. So I have to wonder what it will be like if we move to a new house? I know my parents want to do that this year – this is the only house I’ve ever lived in and I know it so well……I have to wonder just how long it will take me to get all my “new favorite spots” lined up. Probably not too long…….I think we cats have SUN RADAR – we just know these things don’t we?
Do you have a favorite spot to catch the sun?

Haven't had my sun visor out in a while...rain, rain, and more rain.....
Haven’t had the need of my special hat lately – rain almost every day has meant very little in the way of sun. When it’s managed to peek out I guess I’ve been napping somewhere…..because I haven’t seen it in days. Still, I remain hopeful. Cats need sun. It’s a fact. Sunny splashes of warmth on the floor to lie in, sunny front porches to sit on while squinting into the sky, sunny backs of couches and chairs in the window. WHERE IS IT??????
OK – I’m getting cranky aren’t I….well, we don’t want that. I guess I’ll just make the best of things with no sun. Put my little red visor on “hold”……the sun will return! (THE POWER OF PAWSITIVE THINKING)
I heard Mom talking to Dad this morning about her visit with my Auntie Carol. That means Mom is going to be away for two days with Dad taking care of me. Gulp…..that ought to be very interesting. Mom told Dad not to worry – that she’d leave notes around for him regarding important things like what my favorite foods are, how often to check my litterbox, and of course how to make a pot of coffee for himself. 🙂 Out of all those things taking care of ME is the most important. It’s not the first time of course that Mom’s been away for a day or two on her own – but whenever she is, it takes me a while to retrain my Dad. He’s so used to me following Mom around and napping on her lap, that he needs to be reminded that when she’s not here I depend on HIM!
Don’t worry – I’m pretty good at making my wants and needs known! Besides, Mom has all day today and tomorrow before she goes away…plenty of time to make sure Dad is well prepared.
Staying PAWSITIVE…….. 🙂
