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)

Wonderful cat poem! Where do you find all these?

He is absolutely gorgeous. I love watching cats sleep. Oliver reminds me so much of my lovely cat Tom, his colouring is so similar. Love those little pink pads on his paws.

They are the essence of calm aren't they. I think they'd sleep through an earthquake!

Jo, I often think it would be heavenly to nap like a cat. :):) I had a ten minute nap while on our mini vacation. It was nice. I never nap , unless sick. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

I have 12 of the little buggers and I can attest to the fact that indeed they can catch a nap in some of the most outrageous places! I may have to consider doing a few posts featuring some of my dear "gang"! Have a wonderful day Jo!
