    Poll: Have you had this thought?

    I have...

    Wake up in the morning, the cat is asleep. Come home for lunch break, the cat is asleep. Come home from work, the cat is asleep. Try to go to bed, the cat is wide awake trying to turn everything he touches into a trampoline!

    I wish I was a cat sometimes lol

    As I am a very poor sleeper, yes I do envey my kitties sometimes, and they can sleep through noises, stereo's playing etc, but to be honest I would be soo....bored, I think I will stick with being human for now anyway, maybe in a second life though, but only to someone on PT, because they are all good owners.

    Gee in my house it's Wake up in the morning, the cats are sleep. Give them breakfast, get ready for work, the cats are asleep. Come home from work, the cats are asleep. Give them dinner, get myself dinner, the cats are asleep. Get ready for bed, the cat are asleep. Crawl into bed, the cats are asleep on the bed.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    I am curious does anyone know why Cats sleep so much? Has a study ever been done on this subject?

    I saw a documentary once that referred to cat's ability to sleep almost all day as "prodigious capacity for rest." Ha!

    teehee I wish that I could spend maybe one day a week at home sleeping while Boomer goes to work for me... Either that or I could bring him to work with me and sit him in the window to calm down any grumpy officers. Who can stay grumpy when looking at a kitty? He'd probably just fall asleep there too

    Well, when you consider that we call sleeping "getting your beauty rest", is it any wonder that cats are the most gorgeous creatures??


    But to answer your question, YES I have envied my cats for being able to stay home and sleep all day!

    Of course, all of our sweet kitties deserve to be pampered and to live in a home where they are loved and able to get their sleep in peace, but yes, I often wish I could stay in bed with them and nap all day!

    I have tried to balance things out with them. For example, if I'm off to work in the morning and the place could use a vacuuming or the bathroom is a little messy, I will ask them to please take a moment and straighten it up for me while I'm at work making money so we can all eat, but unfortunately it falls on deaf ears, because when I come home, the kitties are well rested and the place is still a mess. They refuse to do any housework!

    I guess they figure, excuse us, but WE are the masters of this home, and YOUR job, momma, is to bring home the bacon AND make sure our home is presentable.

    In return, I get the pleasure of their company and the unconditional love that they give me. I guess it's a fair trade.

    Many thanks to Kay for the fabulous sig!

    I have to admit I really envey them on saturday mornings , when I am out in the dark and cold helping my daughter do her paper run at 6.45 am and they are all cosy and snuggled inside alseep, lucky kitties. I could sure swap with them then for sure.
