Cat naps

There is one thing I envy about cats in general and Domino in particular: their/his capacity to fall asleep pretty much everywhere he darn pleases. As a man suffering from insomnia, I am just amazed at his capacity of adaptation. Domino has slept in every corner of the house and in the garden. But he is particularly fond of the red blanket we placed on the sofa so he wouldn't scratch it. It's an old red blanket we bought to hide the holes and overall ugliness of old sofa that was falling apart. We received a new sofa in 2011 but kept the blanket for cold nights. But now it is Domino's blanket. A bit like Odin and the blanket I had bought in Liverpool. So Domino often takes over my set on the sofa and rolls in a ball or stretches right in the middle of the sofa and sleeps. A lot. How long can a cat take a nap? Anyway, it is not ideal to have him taking over the sofa, but he's so very cute when he does, so I don't mind too much and I can never find the heart to take him off the seat.

No true cat lover will EVER disturb a sleeping cat.

En plus les animaux ont l'air vraiment bien quand ils dorment!

What a cutie pie. I'm glad you are being had by a new kitty ;)
Don't you just love how they sleep curled around their back legs up in their face?
I didn't know you also have insomnia. Fellow night people, unite!
