Dougy had a busy morning He starts to take a cat bath…
…but succumbs to the urgings of Morpheus. His sleepy eyes are about to close.
Slowly, he drifts off. A short snooze is all it takes, then he’s up and about . You can learn from your pets: feel sleepy, take a nap!
It’s interesting how he looks lighter gray in these pictures than in some of the others.
It’s all how the light hits the kitty boys. The older they get and the longer their hair, the more the smoke Persian qualities come out in their pelage. It’s quite pretty but miserable to maintain!
Ha! Winston Churchill learned it from cats!
I highly recommend it!
I hear you. Right now Pyshka is taking her nap in her favorite place – under my arm.
Awww! I love a lap kitty. Dougy is becoming one in his approaching old age. Does Pyshka knead you when she’s snuggling? Dougy does, and it is pleasing to have a purring, kneading cat on my lap. Of course, I do keep a lot of cloth between me and the “Raging Happy Claws That Rip the One They Love to Shreds”!
Oh, Pyshka is not a lap girl, she is an underarm baby. She still thinks of me as mama and she sucks my shirt while falling asleep (sometimes bites too, in her sleep), but she doesn’t knead. The older two are true lap kitties, kneading, purring, kissing on the nose, and even grooming my eyelashes. Yes, I let Barmalei and his claws near my eyes, and he is so gentle and loving!
Wow! That is trusting.
I love his sleepy little face! I didn’t know you speak and write Finnish?
No, I Google Translate for the Finnish. Since my response was longer than usual, the Finnish is a courtesy since he isn’t a native English speaker.
Oh, that’s so nice of you Doug! He seemed to appreciate your translation!
I remember how it was to struggle with German conversations when I was stationed there in the US Army~! I’m sure he can read the English and get the sense of it, but the Finnish would take him less effort and time. Simple courtesy!
dood….morpheus !!! thiz ree minded de gurl bout de movie forbidden planet 🙂 with dr morbius !!! 😉 ♥
Yes, that is my all time favorite sci fi film! I saw first in the local theater when I was a child. I’ve watched many times on television. I especially like Robbie the Robot and his arrival at the space ship on a sweet “car”!
Those are very sweet photos of Dougy cat getting sleepy and drifting off! 🙂
Thanks! He fell asleep in slow motion.
Funny,vI was yesterday evening following Kosmo Doug the same. He was sitting and slowly melting down.
Kitties are cute always.
Kuinka totta! Minulla ei olisi toistaiseksi 2300+ päivittäistä viestiä, jos ne eivät olisi merkkejä. Minulla ei ole koskaan ollut lemmikkieläiminä pidettäviä kissoja, ennen kuin palasin vuonna 2009. Ajattelin, että kissoilla olisi parempi lemmikki koiran sijasta, koska olen pienentynyt yhden perheen kodista huoneistoon. Kissat eivät hauko! LOL! Silloin sain selville, kuinka mielenkiintoisia he ovat, kuinka paljon persoonallisuuskissat osoittavat koko päivän. Koska tiesin vain ystävien ja naapureiden kissoja vuoteen 2009 asti, omien kissoideni käyttäytyminen on kuin uusia ilmoituksia koko ajan.
How true! I wouldn’t have 2300+ daily posts so far if they weren’t characters. I never had cats for pets till I returned in 2009. I thought cats would be a better pet to have instead of a dog since I downsized from from a single family home to an apartment. Cats don’t bark! LOL! That was when I found out how interesting they are, how much personality cats show all day. Since I just knew friends’ and neighbors’ cats up till 2009, the behaviors of my own cats are like new revelations all the time.
Thank you for the Finnish text.
I had a longer comment than usual. I thought it might be easier for you to read it in Finnish I hope Google Translate does a good job!
Google translate doesn’t do good job, it is funny, but well understood. Some day I translate my text to English and you will see.
I was pretty sure it did a better job than with Mandarin, but a worse on than French. Ha! I look forward to your lesson! It doesn’t help that I write conversational English. I bet “pretty sure”, for example, translates hilariously instead of in a way that means “certain”.
We will see soon.
