Napping, Always A Good Choice

A sunbeam and a snooze always make sense.(Miss Clover)

"There are people who reshape the world by force or argument, but the cat just lies there, dozing, and the world quietly reshapes itself to suit his comfort and convenience." ~ Allen and Ivy Dodd
Miss Clover loves the afternoon sun and a soft bed... soon she is asleep. This summer she and her sister Chloe will be fourteen years old. I think she is mellowing in her golden years. She now lets unfamiliar people scratch her head and under her chin without flattening her ears and giving her best snappy yowl! She is the only one of the bunch who refuses to respond to the words "shoo-shoo time". Every other cat comes and saunters off to the sunroom when those words are uttered. Miss Clover ignores them and every night I have to pick her up off my bed and carry her to her nighttime sleeping quarters. But here she just looks so angelic... don't wake her though... she sometimes gets up on the wrong side of the hot tub.

Miss Clover is off to see the animals in Friday's Ark this week at the Modulator and we hope she is awake enough to join the others at the Carnival of the Cats, hosted this week by The Scratching Post. (end of post)
