An Improbable Trio

The Three "Mouseketeers"? I think not. (Click pictures for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"One of the ways in which cats show happiness is by sleeping." ~ Cleveland Amory
Three cats sleeping: a sign of happiness. Three is an odd number as is the idea that these three could ever be happy sleeping together. Chloe and Clover usually don't tolerate Rhett or Scarlett or the Ragdolls. Right now, they are a triad, a triangle, a threesome. Why?

.... but it's probably on their booklist.
"All cats love a cushioned couch. ~ Theocritus
Perhaps it is the oversized chair with a soft plush cushion. But look, this is the cat reading chair; with titles such as A Cat's Guide to Birds, The Manic Cat,and look, here's Pyramid Power. It would surely take three cats to check that book out. So why should it be a surprise to see three cat's happily sleeping in the company of their books? Are humans the only ones allowed to fall asleep with a paper or a book?

These three will be boarding Friday's Ark with their friends and will attend a poetry reading at the Carnival of the Cats; hosted this week by Watermark. (end of post)
