A New Approach to Cat Napping

Brent’s favorite thing to do on weekends is to catch up on his sleep quota. Nothing is better than snuggling with one of the cats. In 2007, our Alabama redneck rescue, Holiday, thought there was nothing better in the world than snuggling with his new dad in the warm afternoon.

I peeked into the bedroom of our trailer to find Holiday with his paws on Brent’s mouth as if shutting him up so he could sleep. I’m not sure who was shutting up whom as Holiday purrs and snores great volumes, but it was too cute to pass up.

It’s now 2011 and I bet if I walk upstairs right now in the heat of another weekend afternoon thousands of miles from Alabama in our home in Portland, Oregon, I would find the two of them curled up together napping. Wonder if Holiday is shutting Brent up again, or this time, Brent has his paws on Holiday.
