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 didn’t 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.  That’s 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 hadn’t 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.
