Is This Cat Lazy, Or What?

Nicky is a lazy cat. (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"Work - other people's work - is an intolerable idea to a cat. Can you picture cats herding sheep or agreeing to pull a cart? They will not inconvenience themselves to the slightest degree." ~ Dr. Louis J. Camuti
"Are cats lazy? Well, more power to them if they are. Which one of us has not entertained the dream of doing just as he likes, when and how he likes, and as much as he likes?" ~ Fernand Mery
Nicholas (Nicky) sleeps all night with the others in the sunroom, usually on the top perch of the cat tree. After a leisurely breakfast, he ambles slowly towards the master bedroom. Here he takes his place on top of the bed, occasionally burrowing under a throw. Here he stays all day, and I really mean all day. Sometimes he is alone, sometimes he sleeps with my mom. In the evening he might lumber through the house for another snack but then it is either back to the bed or to a recliner in the den. Here he props himself up as if to watch TV. Around 8:30 PM he starts the "shoo-shoo" process and moves slowly for the sunroom. He never runs, rarely meows and never begs. He is one lazy cat.

Submission for PhotoTuesday topic "lazy".
Nicky wants to visit Friday's Ark this week as well as the 100th Carnival of the Cats at Bloggin' Outloud. I know it is only Tuesday, but as slow and lazy as he is, it might take him several days to get himself over there. (end of post)
