In the middle of a somewhat stressful week for me, personally, I am grateful for the presence of cats in my life – particularly my own boy – and for the reminder of their calm ability to take themselves off for a snooze at any opportunity.
There is no better easer for blood-pressure than a quiet snuggle with a purring friend
And with the warmer days, cats who have stayed indoors are increasingly venturing out in search of the sunshine.
Some of them like to sleep solo…
others would rather doze in tandem….
or with a crowd.
Some prefer to curl up in a container…
others will sprawl out to gather or dissipate all the heat.
Some achieve darkness with a face-plant
others prefer to feel the warmth on their faces
Every day is a holiday for our Sanctuary cats – a day to do lots of nothing, or to sleep, or to play – alone or in company, as they choose.
When we say “it’s a dog’s life”, the implication is one of sadness or difficulty – though as we all know, many dogs have lives that are anything but sad! It’s a pity that there’s no such common phrase as “it’s a cat’s life” – meaning a life of comfort and ease. We could all do with that sort of life!
