Sleeping cat

Cats are rather delicate creatures and they are subject to a good many ailments — but I never heard of one that suffered from insomnia.

      The kind of photographic subject I’m good at i.e. stationary!

      I managed to take an in focus photograph of a spider last night. But a photo of spider on a wall isn’t too interesting – except maybe to The Spider Club people!

    How precious, Lisa! I love cats!

    I look forward to being home in the US for a couple of weeks so I have the bandwidth to upload photos. Here in Haiti it’s nearly impossible!

    Hope you day is going well and you’re feeling okay!

      Cats are special, aren’t they?

      Look forward to seeing some of your photos.

    My cat usually imitate one of the cozy snooz’s when I need to leave for work. In winter, curled up under the blankets, and in summer, stretched out on the balcony. It always makes me wish for another 10minutes’ sleep (at least).

      What is a cozy snooz?

      About time you sent that cat of yours out to earn its own kitty food! This lazing about all day is no good. 😉

        “Cozy snooze” is what I call the way only cats sleep. They always look “cozy” no matter where, or how pretzel-shaped, they sleep.

        Ah-uhm! I’m sure my cat isn’t all that lazy, she just works for Fauna & Flaura. 😉

        I have so many photographs of Lucy sleeping in all sorts of funny shapes. And like your cat, it doesn’t seem to interfere at all in how well she sleeps.
