Furry Friday: Cats that take snoozing seriously

Although Robbie only has three legs, he regularly carries himself around while running around and playing with his toys.  His favorite place for a nap is the back of the couch, which becomes Robbie-shaped.

This week’s Furry Friday comes with a health and safety warning: After reading it, don’t use heavy machinery.

Today I made a collection of cats in deep sleep – no matter where they are. After all, a cat can sleep anywhere, anytime, and when it does, it gives its all.

So scroll down and enjoy it, but make sure to relax and have a coffee afterwards so that it doesn’t affect your productivity. And apologies to those who looked in vain for a Furry Friday last week – I didn’t have time for it due to a family death.
