If you had been serious about straightening out the comforter, Human Mommy…
…you would have done so before our nap marathon commenced.
–Darth Vader and Finnegan
If you are a Woofie, you may need to wait for the Humans to offer you a pillow.
If you’re a Cat, you simply take possession of what’s rightfully yours.
What do you mean this basket of clean laundry is not a bed, Human Mommy?
It is quite lovely for a lie-down.
What’s that, Human Mommy, you want to know where the lint roller is?
How should I know?
Choose your bachelor pad wisely. If you like a bit of action, don’t move too far out to the country–youthful Kittens will keep you young.
On the other paw, be sure that your pad is protected from the hurly-burly of the youngsters’ catnip-fueled disputes. Kittens may do fine with a mere 18 hours of sleep daily, but you require a minimum of 20 hours.
Most importantly, make sure that your pad is in close proximity to the best place in the house, i.e. the kitchen.
All naps are good, but some are better than others. For example, although I appreciate my mid-morning and mid-afternoon naps, my early afternoon nap is my favorite.
What’s that Humans? It’s Monday and you have to “work”? “Work” precludes naps, you say?
“Work” sounds dreadful.
Ever wake up only to feel that there is a large, uninvited presence behind you? You could be right or you could still be dreaming.
Either way, it’s probably best just to fall back asleep and hope that it doesn’t snore or slobber.
Congratulations, Human Mommy, you’ve stumbled down to the kitchen!
Now, do you really want that cup of coffee?
Wouldn’t you rather flop down on the floor and sleep away the morning with me?
Prelude to a nap or to a challenging yoga routine?
For us Cats, there is no difference. The best yoga is performed asleep and the best naps entail positions that make Humans wonder if we share a common ancestor with Silly Putty.
It doesn’t matter who arrived first. Cats always have dibs on the pillow.
