How Cats Sleep

The composition is off, there is a lot of background clutter; in general this is NOT a good picture. But it reflects a moment in the life of two cats and their "Grandma". Nicholas is at his usual (most normal, non-contortionistic) position; bottom of her bed with his head on her feet. Mr. Rhett does not often sleep with her but here he takes up his weird position (although normal for him) in the curve of the stomach and draped over her side. It is almost an upright position. Of course if she were on her back he would be right there on her lap. All three could sleep the day away in these positions. Would anyone be surprised at this? Of course not.

Be sure to visit all the cats and other animals at Friday's Ark and on Sunday check out Carnival of the Cats, this week hosted by Boxing Alcibiades.
