A Day in the Life of Us


Naps are essential to us and all cats everywhere on earth. Here are some pictures of us enjoying our three favourite naps (these particular naps are strictly limited to warm, summer days like yesterday) These naps are as follows:
1. our Morning Nap;
2. our Afternoon Nap; and
3. our Evening Nap.

Ahh, life is good!!!


1. MORNING NAP

Napping in the early morning sun and the neat shadows that dance on the wall.

Warning: One cat can hide another.

2. AFTERNOON NAP

Here I am napping next to the stones that spell out 'there' - in French ('La-Bas' is what Mom and Dad call our country house). I am so la-bas!!

The sun has moved west enough so that the cobblestones just in front of the house are in the shade. I like to lay here near the front door because the cool air from inside the house pours out and over me...like natural air-conditioning!!

Tiny: 'The weather today is Exquithith and this spot is Fabuluth!!!'

Tiny is once again daring to sleep on a chair outside despite suffering from 'badTAT*'...I was keeping watch (yes, I CAN see through my eyelids!!) and Mom was nearby so maybe that helped.

3. EVENING NAP

When the sun is behind the trees, we like to lay on the still warm cobblestones and roll around...ooo, what a great stone massage!!

* For a definition of badTAT, please see our post from yesterday, 1 August.

Your napping options look delightful! The warm evening bricks are especially inviting.

Do you go from one area to another with the seasons? In the Summer we sleep on the North side of the Catio, and on the South side in Winter to catch the Sun.

We're glad you two are back!

How are your Mom's eyes?
