Kitty - A Study in Complete Relaxation

Is it any wonder he falls off chairs....?


Much safer here - sleeping on a file box under the Bag Lady's desk. Not quite as far to fall, either, as from those high stools at the kitchen island.

That fluffy belly is just waiting to be kissed. She's a beauty.. and relaxed like only a cat can be (which led to the inevitable humiliation - also unique to cats). I love the little black spot on the left side of her little nose.

my parents have 8 outside cats but they are so loved, they are completely tame and spoiled. My dad makes houses out of cardboard boxes on the back deck and it is amazing how they can all snuggle up and sleep so peacefully together. I am going to be out there today, maybe I'll get a pic if the kids don't scare them away ;)

Hilary - Fuzzy is a real cuddler, too. And always wants to be close to me, hence sleeping under the desk. Has a black spot on his lip, too, and inside the mouth.

Annette - oh, I hope you can get a picture! Fuzzy was born to a stray cat that wandered into MIL's place - the mother was quite wild, but Fuzzy adapted to being a housecat very quickly.

I relaxed just looking at it.

the Bag Lady said...

dfLeah - almost makes you wish you were a cat, doesn't it?

Aw. So fluffy!

the Bag Lady said...

Mary Anne in Kentucky - cat pose? :)

Tink - He is, isn't he? His name is Fuzzy and he had a sister named Wuzzy ...

I am soooo jealous! Read my post, you'll understand. I can hear mine snoring in the living room.

the Bag Lady said...

Reb - insomnia is a bitch - hope it goes away soon so you can get some rest!

R said...

here kitty, kitty! Cats never come to me when I say that...

I could just snuggle up to her right now! Hope you're having a great weekend!

She's precious. By the way, I find myself thinking I'm brain-tied all of the time; great description term.

the Bag Lady said...

Rupal - you probably wouldn't have too much trouble getting this cat to come to you - he's very friendly!

Poutalicious - the brain-tied thing happens to you, too? I'm glad I'm not alone!

Now that's what I call a cat's life! Humans should take a lesson from that in our fast-paced world ! Have you had very much down-time lately, BL? I don't imagine with feeding the cows etc. Great picture! Have a great Sat. evening!

the Bag Lady said...

Thanks, Redbush! The pets around here certainly have it pretty good!

Yep, sometimes they don't seem to have any bones when they sleep. Mine falls off the bookshelf--and onto me since my desk is right beside it. This can be quite startling when I'm in "the zone" writing--or more likely, trying to beat Spider Solitaire just one more time.

the Bag Lady said...

Amy - I've been in the Spider Solitaire zone myself a time or two! :)

bunnygirl said...

I love that pose!

the Bag Lady said...

BG - so do I! He sleeps like that quite frequently.

Crabby McSlacker said...

Really, that's a belly that calls out for rubbing.

But I'm also loving the gender confusion. When I first read your post, I thought "he?" Aren't cats with both orange and black generally she's?"

Then it appears that several comments went with the assumption that the cat was a girl, ignoring pronoun usage.

I remember my mom telling me about a scientific article probably 40 years ago that explained how rare it was to have boy cats with both orange and black. I've always felt like a smarty-pants for knowing that calico cats with both orange and black in their fur could safely be addressed as "she."

Whoops, just goes to show you! There are always exceptions to any rule.

the Bag Lady said...

Crabby - the truth is that Fuzzy is actually an "it". He is a neutered male. And I wasn't aware of the study you mention - guess Fuzzy wasn't, either.... :)

Cats sure know how to sleep, don't they?
