PostSubject: Being a cat for a day   Sun Jun 17, 2018 12:18 am

I read that one should observe a cat and take lessons from it.† I decided to give it a try.† I did notice that they take frequent naps and that was appealing.
The first thing a cat does when it gets up is to stretch. †I didnít see that as a problem.† Getting the muscles relaxed and ready for action is a good idea.† Phase one, the stretching part was something I could do. †Next observation was the cat scratching behind the ear with its foot.† Thatís when I ran into trouble. Getting my foot behind my ear would have been a feat even in my younger years. If I was observed laying down afterward it would be due to pain and not relaxation.† The follow-up sequence, washing myself with my tongue was another sequence that I would reject.† Then came the part where the cat jumps onto the narrow railing. †Even if I was agile enough and made it to the railing, falling off was a real possibility. Landing on my feel, typical of a cat, was not something I wanted to test. †Going to the pooper box was something I could do, however cleaning up afterwards - cat style, was not appealing. †I hadnít reached the laying down part and relaxing or going to the food bowl for a snack.† I determined that the hurdles necessary to reach the relaxing stage were not worth the risks. †I was willing to purr and snuggle while being stroked, however there are limits to what a human is willing or capable of doing.† †Being cat for a day lost its appeal.

The naps attract me.

Thanks Alice.† I have often been told that I am nuts. Is that a qualification?†
I think I'll take a nap.

It's a †dog's life.
