Why Cats Sleep So Well

Have you ever stopped to think.....cats know nothing about death, living for the moment (as long as they get fed and their basic needs met) thinking life goes on, forever. They also don't worry about money, bills, teenage children driving, their health, tax time, getting/holding a job, none of things we mortals have festering in our brains all the time. They are not prying into others lives, speaking ill of their neighbors, lying or stealing; they never need to have a guilty conscience. They harbor no ill will towards anyone, regardless of what they may have done (or said.) I think that is why they sleep so well and never get wrinkles.

We are so sorry, we missed thanking Victor for the sweet song he wrote to the Calico Girls. I printed it out, along with the one from Edsel and Trixie of The Meezers. So thanks, all of you!!

Actually, the Lap Lady is always saying she wishes she was me. She says I have "the life". I think all people should be more like cats.

And when we gets old and start losing our sight and hearing, and efen when we are stiff and walk like "franken-stine", and we can't groom like we used to and has fur mats, we still gets held and loved and kissed on, and bestest of all, we gets all the stinky goodness and treats we wants!

Mom keeps askin me to switch; I'll go to werk an she'll sleep on the bed all day. I'm willin to try it, but I can't drive. I'm furry content, but Bonnie stresses out about me pouncin her, visitors, me eatin her food, gettin enuf treats, me in her spots, her fountain disappearin, and she really stresses out about me gettin to close. She says I haf cooties.

Chey must not sleep furry well cause although that described me and Georgia, it didn't really describe her and I'm not telling tales cause she sniffed and said so herself!

You're a furry smart human and you've got most of that right on. However...there's this man who stepped on my tail and yelled at me and I've NEVER forgiven him and I NEVER will. When I see him, I hiss and growl. Is that ill will? Cause if it is, I have it.

Yup trouble sleeping is the worst for our mom. She takes sleepin pills if it gets too bad. Mom says the guinea pigs are the same. She has held many as they died and she said they just close their eyes & flost off. No troubles or fights to stay alive.

We cats have thoughts about stuff, it is just that we don't worry about it. As long as the food is there, we are good.

Plus we never do anything wrong, so why should we have guilty thoughts, Nah.

All these things are why Cats are the superior species. Now, Patches looks so comfy I think I'll go take a nap.

My Dad always tells me I live on Easy Street. OK, I'll admit it...cats that live in good families have it pretty, darn good! My Mom says she wants to come back as a cat, but in a good family. Oh...and she says she would add the house and car that need repair to your great list!

I agree with Rascal: cats must be the superior species. No worries, huh? No wonder I have trouble sleeping some nights! :-)
