Need a break from your day? One of the cozy little things that relaxes me is watching my cats nap. I am sharing several photos of cozy little cat nap scenes from around my home today. Fluffy (the smaller, fluffier one of the two) and Mickey (Fluffy’s baby, who is larger than her tiny Mama!) are our two cats pictured below.
I rescued Fluffy just 2 years ago when she was a pregnant feral kitty who had just gone in to labor. She and her (big) child are a very tight knit family and they sleep together every night, nap together, and well…do most everything together! They also like to curl up with me to take naps and sleep with Matt at the foot of the bed at night. I get a kick out of them, because they frequently include me in their pre-nap grooming sessions. Fluffy especially, tries to clean my ears and lick my eye lashes and eyebrows…just like she does to her baby Mickey!
There is something about napping with cats, or watching them nap, that brings about a sense of peace and serenity. It is a form of mindfulness for me (almost like meditation), and keeps me in the present moment. So , now on to the photos of my sleeping babies!
Momma Fluffy still likes to wrap her arms around her baby and pull her close while sleeping. Mickey is much bigger than her now, so it is kind of funny!
Yawn and stretch! Mickey is getting ready for her nap…
Cuteness! This was the two of them napping in the chair near the Christmas tree last year (2013). It was their first Christmas (and ours too!) in the new home…
Their favorite room of the house is an enclosed porch room that I call the garden room. There are floor to ceiling windows that overlook the garden & patio with lots of wildlife for them to watch. Here they are taking a nap on a lazy, sunny afternoon with the breeze blowing in the screen doors. You can’t see me in the photo, but I was napping on the couch with them (just to the left).
The End :).
Do you ever give yourself time out for a “cat nap”? It’s good to give ourselves permission for these things I think! What is your favorite place to nap? I am like the cats, as mine is the garden room too.
Remember-part of living inspired is knowing when to rest. Often times I feel more inspired after a nap ;).
Until next time, much love xoxo Rebekah
