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)

Oh, he is so beautiful. Just look at those sweet and pretty toes. Perfect. And yes, they do sleep anywhere - happily even.
Thank you for such a cute photo and poem.

Bless! Love it....
And there's one similar..only for mice....

MICE.....

Their tails are long, their faces small,
They haven't any chins at all,
I think mice are rather nice.
Their ears are pink, their teeth are white,
They run about the house at night,
I think mice are rather nice.
They nibble things they shouldn't touch,
And no-one seems to like them much.
But I think mice are nice! :).

Rose Fyleman (1877-1957).

Oliver is one of my favorite cats on the blog. He seems to be always sleeping. I like his color of fur.
