Daily Photo Reprise: Sleepy Neighborhood Watch Tortie, 2012

Kelly catches 40 winks or so on her shift as window monitor.

So Kelly had today’s shift as Neighborhood Watch Cat, but on a quiet Sunday on the street there’s an opportunity to catch a nap. Her eyes aren’t quite closed all the way, she could awaken at any moment, so no one need worry of an unexpected and unannounced danger, such as the squirrel running across the porch, or chipmunks taking advantage of the birdbath.

We will all be back to work tomorrow, from the first bird tweet in the trees and the first commuter parking in front of the house.

Browse some rescued cats and kittens!

    • Indeed she was–but she could awaken at any moment, so humans had better not think about taking advantage of her nearly closed eyes!
