Classic Kelly

tortoiseshell cat asleep
Kelly fast asleep.

When Kelly sleeps, she is like a limp stuffed toy, relaxing and first her head sliding off and hanging over the edge, then the rest of her body sliding off of whatever she is on like a Slinky. Here she is on the shelf in front of the window and you can see in the back a growing portion of her is hanging behind. At least she has the Cat Tablet on which to rest her head or she’d be sliding off headfirst. But she always looks absolutely sweet no matter what she does.

    Love the picture! I to have a fondness for toties to! Although I love keeping up with your “Boys” I especially like when you post pictures of the girls!

      Well, hello to you all! I try to give them equal time since there are seven, the black cats get five days and the torties get two, but I always give the girls an extra day or two. They don’t get sketched as often, so why not!

    Bernadette I so love all your of your pictures but am partial to your tortie girls (for obvious reasons since I have one). You are right, she looks so sweet. It’s amazing where they will sleep comfortably. Nikita will sleep on my son’s skateboard or on his binder. Now how can that possibly be comfortable??

      Sue, obviously we are partial to torties! And while Kelly usually starts out her nap with a good idea, she often ends up unexpectedly somewhere else after totally relaxing–I often catch her as I feel her sliding off my lap!
