Cats Sleep Anywhere

Cats sleep anywhere,any table, any chair.
Top of piano, window-ledge, in the middle,on the edge,
Open drawer, empty shoe, anybody's lap will do.
Fitted in a cardboard box, in the cupboard with your frocks.
Anywhere! They don't care! Cats sleep anywhere.

~ Eleanor Farjeon (1881)

I Love this !
So very true. Now that I have 2 of my own and whoops, forgot my moms cat I just inherited, 3 of my own, I do see how they sleep anywhere .. peacefully .. on the very edge of a tall dresser .. or as my little Minette does, from the counter to the top of the fridge to the top of the cabinets, 11 feet ? up .. she hangs her little head off the edge and watches me like an adorable vulture lol

Sweet picture of Oliver, and cute poem. I never heard it before, but it sure is true! :-)

Cats do sleep so much, though I think with one eye open.

Patsy said...

For sure they do, looking so comfortable in anything.

Sleep where you land. They are not particular when the know they are safe inside. Oliver is one of my favorites.

This is so true. We have nine and they spend most of their days draped all over the house sleeping. Such a sweet photo :-)
