Ambition

A sleeping cat is a thing of beauty. To be as comfortable as only a cat can be is an ambition worth achieving.

My Pilates instructor would be an elegant black & white cat if she were a cat. When I started Pilates 4 years ago I was a Golden Retriever; now I think I could be a Maine Coon. I'll never have the simple elegance of the extraordinary gingers!

Does anyone else see people as animals?

Hi, nice to meet you! I found a link to you on Mickey's blog. You are very poetic and interesting kitties. I read the "Purr n Fur" article and love that the whole family goes for walks together:) xxx

So true! I get closer to this ideal on a cold winter's night, with a comfy bed a large feather duvet to help, but still have a long way to go... I envy you your relaxation techniques!

Off-season, but sound advice from a scholar here:

'Score lines along the top of your garden wall at two-inch intervals. This way you can measure the temperature of summer days by the length of your sleeping cat.'

More weather lore:
If rain is on the way, the cats will be lying down.

If sunshine is coming, the cats will lie down.

If it is to be windy, the cats will... (&c)

That has the sound of a proverb.

Love that quote.

Need to read it everyday! I've often thought of copying the schedule and attitude my cats seem to have.
