Cat Nap

I never take naps.  It's just not in my bones.  I wish I was the kind of person who could catch 20 winks when I feel the need but when I try to climb into bed at 3pm on a Saturday, I just lie there and stare at the ceiling.

Last weekend I surprised myself by falling asleep on the couch for a half an hour.  It was so great.  When I woke up, this was staring down at me.  My iPhone was right next to me so I grabbed it in my hazy state and started shooting.


The afternoon sun was bouncing off the window in the corner and really gave the cat a crazy flare stare.


In this last one, her silhouette looks a little Batman-esque doesn't it?


And as I was putting this post together I thought...hmmm....Batman...Batman and Robin...the dynamic duo.  The prompt at The Sunday Creative this week is "dynamic".  Does this count?  C'mon, won't you give it to me?  I'm trying to think outside the box and it's been a long week.

Was Kitty saying, "hey, you don't nap, that's my job!"

I'm not a great napper either but love it when I do.
What a cute kitty!

Too funny! I lurves naps and usually take one when I get home. It strains the brain listening to 29 10 year olds all day, with very little adult conversation...I love the look on the kitty's face...

I'm not a napper - would rather spend that time with a book or some music.

Awesome photos!
