I want to be a cat! I mean, look at these two. Can you imagine being any more relaxed and peaceful than they are? I can imagine it all right, but as a human I can’t begin to be it because of all the responsibilities that we humans have placed upon ourselves.
When I realized that Zeus (top shelf) and his sister Nike were crashed out on the porch, I snuck over to take a photo to send to Victoria who is at music camp this week. I was afraid that they’d hear me walking across the porch and move, but they didn’t. I was sure they’d move after the first click of the camera, but they didn’t. Since they didn’t move after the sixth click either, I knew they were conked out for good for a while. The only thing that would have made this serene scene even better would have been if their little brother, Sylvester, had been on the bottom shelf. We’ve not seen Sylvester for a couple of days so I’m beginning to get worried. Cross your fingers and pray real hard that he’s just been out and about and will return this weekend.
It’s always heart warming to see them curled up on one of the porch chairs asleep. They’re just one big pile of black and white. It’s sometimes hard to tell where one cat starts and another ends. If they are awake they’ll roll over so you can scratch theirbellies, just like an old dog would do. Zeus is well known for rolling over right in front on a visitor who’s trying to leave so that he can get his belly rubbed. These cats are so spoiled that they will even line up as you’re coming up the walk spacing themselves evenly up the walk and flipping over as you come up to them so you can rub their belly; which we and almost everyone else does. Yes, they have us all very well trained.
So, now you can understand why being a cat looks pretty good to me. I’m just in the mood to be shed of some responsibility…for a while at least.
