Let Sleeping Cats Lie


Of course, like any handsome cats, I need a hefty dose of my beauty sleep.  Some studies say cats spend about 16 hours a day sleeping, but to the eyes of many humans it seems even worse than that, some even believe we only wake up to stuff our faces.  But in reality, as us being nocturnal creatures, we do sneak in a good amount of action time while you humans are snoozing away at night!

So worry not... watching a peacefully sleeping cat also give you a wonderful therapeutic effect as well.  And here it is... one of my timeless classics, the sleeping beauty video.. enjoy and soothe your poor, agitated human soul! :-)

  1. Licia, it is my observation that hunky boys knows how to enjoy their sleeps the best! Ollie's free form of sleep is so very much like Suki, Orange, Mel & Tam. And they are all hunky boys....that dead to the world expression and total abandonment of "polite" sleeping positions is a JOY to observe and always puts a smile on my face, as I am sure you find it very amusing too.

  2. oh yes Anita, totally!!! Contrary to the general image of cats neatly curling up for their nap, it was beyond amusing in our early days and still to this day never cease to make me chuckle :-) This is yet another aspect of the specialness of our hunky boys!!!

  4. Auntie Connie, mamma made this video almost 4 years ago. But it came out so well and showcases my feline charm purrrfectly, she wanted to share it again for my newer aunties and uncles. Can you tell I was decidedly smaller still in some of the pictures? I was still a growing boy back then!
