A cat pours his body on the floor like water. It is restful just to see him. - William Lyon Phelps

This photo kind of makes you rethink that quote doesn't it?

Tripod loves his bed more than food almost, but when he gets too hot in it, he can't decide which is better, the floor or the bed so this is the result. He's done this 'play dead' look before on a warm day. Remember this shot last August?

Apply heat and you have a collapsible cat who sleeps so soundly that nothing wakes him except picking him up body and bones.

I've been playing around with clouds and charcoal lately. I ran out of coloured paper except for this brownish grey one. I finally went out and bought some new paper in various shades of blue on Saturday but I was too far into this one at that point to want to do it all over again. I'll try another cloud on the blue later.

Oh that is so cute. I love seeing pictures of him. I will have to take a photo of my miniature schnauzer so you can see how she sleeps in her bed. She hangs out too.

What gorgeous clouds! And the photo of tripod has to be one of the best cat photos ever--it really captures that blissful, deep sleep that cats seem universally to enjoy.
