Kelly Really Sleeping: From A Year Ago

Kelly Really Sleeping

Unlike some other cats who tend to stretch and go limp the deeper they fall into sleep, Kelly curls tighter and tighter, finishing with turning her head and wrapping her paws around whatever she can.

With a tortoiseshell’s coat markings all speckled and mixed up as they are you can’t always tell what’s going on when you look at her, but she’s pretty much got her hind legs under her head and her tail wrapped around under her back, sleeping on my lap.

    Bernadette, it looks like Kelly sleeps in the shape of a spiral. One meaning for this symbol says the spiral represents the way of all things, beginning at the center and surrendering to outward expansion, connecting with all that is. Or maybe it’s just a perfect sleeping position!

      Chris, I think you are right. My white cat, who was deaf, slept like a nautilus, upright and curled in a swirl.
