This can’t be comfortable

Have you ever looked at your peacefully sleeping pet and wondered how that pose could ever be comfortable? Especially getting up and moving afterwards?

Me too.

Exhibit A: Sleeping Argos

I wouldn’t be able to walk for several hours after waking if I slept like that. Barnie agrees.

Then there was a cookie-dispersal or other kitchen attraction, and dog bed occupations shifted. Purl grabbed this dog bed, but wasn’t fast enough(!), and had to split the bed with Barnie.

Finally Purl took off for the Best Dog Bed Ever, aka the couch.

Barnie rejoiced.

Creature Comforts

In this house, like so many dog-cat households, the cats have no problem taking over the dog beds. Quincy learned this from a very young age. Sometimes though, it is the simple things. Like a piece of tissue paper.

Quincy claims that, too.

I was busy over at my art table, preserving the Ginkgo leaves I had dried and pressed over the last few days.

I looked up to see this scene. Awww… sweet little Quincy, taking a cat nap in the sun. Peaceful.

Everything sweet and cozy, that is, until Barnie entered the room.

Barnie prepares to hop on the chair, but the Quincy Stare tells Barnie to vacate.

Really, Quincy?

Bored, Bored, Bored

Do you ever feel bored but don’t really have any other ideas of what to do? Yeah, so does Quincy.

Of course, there is always the musical pet beds game…

But Quincy needed more excitement. Taking beds away from the dogs is too easy, really.

Quincy loooves his mousie. Without a human though, the mousie just isn’t as lively.

Since the dogs give comfy beds up without a fight, maybe the human’s chair would be more of a challenge? Nope.

Bored, Quincy looks for something else to do.

Unless it is my dinner chair. That did get my attention, and Quincy had to move on.

This is when I knew he was bored. He hardly ever takes time for a bath.

Ooohhh maybe Invisi-cat shield potential here?

Tired of trying, Quincy heads off to his old familiar haunt, the Invisi-cat shield — A place where he can hang out and do and say what he feels like.
