Summertime Napping

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)

No sleep, sometimes I wished I was a cat.

I really like the poem. Oliver is doing a great job of sleeping.

What big paws you have, Ollie! :-)

Hello Friend! I love this verse, and of course, I love your boy Oliver for his spirit and personality that shows in the photos you have posted of him -- It makes me feel like I know him!!

Such a beautiful kitty kat. I love the poem. I love watching my little Pogo sleep. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
