Cats are known for their love of napping...
...and our two are no exception.
Our sweet Tiger, adopted back in September of '93, is over 19 years old. She has always been on the shy side. When she was younger, she spent a lot more time out and about in the house during the day, but always returned to Amanda's bed at nighttime.
Now that she's older, she spends the majority of her days - and nights - on the bed in Amanda's old room. This is Tiger's spot, the place she has slept every night of her life since she was a wee kitten. You don't see me post too often about our Tiger because, frankly, she does spend most days doing just this - sleeping!
She won't climb into covered cat beds (which we thought would provide her with a bit more warmth on cold winter nights), so instead we create a makeshift tent of sorts out of pillows and blankets. She happily crawls into it, snuggling up in the back where she feels safe and warm.
Of course her favorite times are when Amanda is home, as she was over Thanksgiving (when I snapped this photo). At those times, she gets to sleep with her favorite person in the world! Pure kitty bliss!
Now Baby, on the other hand (who is, by all rights, Court's kitty), well she truly is just a babe, only a few years old.
She's perfectly content to curl up anywhere to catch her 40 winks.
All the better if it's in the middle of all the action (like the living room bay window). She thrives on being the center of attention.
I disturbed her nap a bit and she cutely stretched her paws outwards and then went right back to napping. This is one of her favorite spots because the heating vents are just on either side of this chest and when the forced hot air comes on, it rushes up the back of this chest making it a very warm place to nap (especially when the temps outside are in the 30's!).
Here's a little clip of her eyebrows and whiskers being tousled about by the force of the heat.
With all my picture taking, Baby woke up enough to do a kitty's second favorite thing - washing!
"I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul."
I'll joining Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show & Tell Friday.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
