The Great Nap In

I was going to call it the 'Great American Nap In', and then decided I want all my friends around the world to be able to enjoy this too.

Most cats practice a balanced diet of rest: sleep, doze, drowse, nap, snooze. Many of us spend many more than half the hours of the day devoted to this diet.

Please post a picture of yourself in the middle of your most delicious form of rest...and let us know how many hours today were spent on that activity.

I'll start

I can hold this position for at least 6 hours at a stretch. There are other places that are comfy as well. I'll try to get pictures of those nap sites today.

I am a champion in naps! My favorite at the moment is my frying pan of course...a few summers ago i slept in a shopping baggy out in my patio for the whole summer!

BTW: the lady I have in mind for you has silver and peach colored fur with a white bib...her name begins with a G....she is purrrrrdy

Wow, 6 hours? You are a very talented napper.

Hi there Ben--
You are a real endurance-napper. That is very impressive. I'm partial to napping on my back. I also like napping on my side on the window-sill pushing against the window. Really, there should be more studies on cat-napping. Fascinating subject.
Your new buddy, Jimmy Joe

You look very comfortable there, Ben.

I observe my diet closely. I am in a state of rest nearly 20 hours per day. Of course, multi-tasking is necessary, like sleeping in the sink while waiting for a servant to turn it on. I stir for the necessaries, like eating, litter, and to whap Victor. Purrs!

Awwww, Ben, you look darling in your comfy nap pose! I loooooove napping. Napping, lounging, and reclining are true arts!

Sisterly purrs and snuggles from Marilyn.

Six hours is a long time to spend in one position! I'm not sure I can do that; I move around in my sleep, I think.

I'll post a pic of me taking a nap soon. I can do 6 hour ones too - and feel fresh as a kitty when I wake up! I am so happy to meet you! Thank you for visiting me and saying hello. I look forward to getting to know you more.
Your friend - Frodo

This is a great idea, I will get on it today but first I need to find the girl human with the camera so she can take a picture as proof. FAZ

You look so comfy napping. I fink six hours is a long time. But it is such fun to nap, specially when its hot out.

I just LOVE this picture of you! You look so comfy, what a great place to sleep!

In response to you comment on my blog, I understand and think that you and Mommy Toni should take some time to recoupe. I may have spelled that wrong but you get the idea. I'm still hurting over the loss of Suzy, too. Mommy and I haven't been blogging or visiting very much because aside from being SO busy, Mommy has been feeling down about Sean's situation as well. She goes on but has no ambition and really only visits the blogs of you and your sibs (and a few others). Now with him at camp for a week, she's even more sad. Our Mommy's are in need of our love. I will come to see you often and yes, we will do guy things. I think that will be fun. I'll be over in a few minutes.

I love you! Get your rest and love your Mommybean! We can blog later.

Much love,
Daddy!

I try to get in at least 8 hours of napping each day, more if possible. Many times Mom and Dad go out and when they come back they say "George, you're still in the same place". What is their point?!

you mean you get left undisturbed like that for 6 hours? you're lucky! if any of our people saw you, they'd have their face in your fur in about 1.5 seconds.

good afternoon dudes. I'm really into shoes and I have been looking for that singular make. The prices for the shoes are approximately 190 dollars everwhere. But for all I found this site selling them as a remedy for half price. I absolutely like these [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]gucci sneakers[/url]. I will definetly order these. what can you tell me about these?
