… but two are way too many. Actually, this was originally said about children, but since I have four cats, I think this is applicable.
People who don’t have cats have some odd ideas — like they’re aloof, not affectionate and want only to be left alone. Well, let me disabuse you of this idea — first of all, meet my two-bodied cat. WHAT? You’ve never heard of a two-bodied cat? Well undoubtedly you’ve heard of a two-headed animal! Sure — you’ve seen them in The Enquirer when you’re standing in the check-out line. There are two-headed goats and dogs and even kittens, so why not an animal with one head and two bodies. Seen here is the Smokey cat with the Blackjack appendage.
Oh, wait — it’s not really a two-bodied cat — it’s two cats who specialize in “synchronized sleeping.” But they don’t sleep all the time — they just get in their normal 16-18 hours a day. After all, it can be exhausting being a cat.
There’s Paddy O’Cat who has learned to sleep wherever he happens to be when the sandman strikes. Yes, he could possibly stagger another few feet to a chair, but that Persian rug will have to do.
And LopEar who proves that there is still a use for phone books in this world. They make the perfect cat pillow.
Lop Ear has also learned the joy of sleeping outdoors, while Smokey prefers the bed. The trouble with sleeping on the bed is that someone is always coming in and flipping on the light! Honestly, how’s a cat supposed to get her quota of sleep with all that going on?
So I hope you have learned that cats are wonderful companions — full of affection and joyously playful. Oh, wait … maybe I have that all wrong.
I think I’d better go sleep on it.
