Crazy Cat Lady attempts to take a nap three times a week. These are usually on her double shift days, which makes the difference between being a crab and being her normal kind and gentle self.
General nap time starts around 3pm and is over at 4:04pm. How much of this time is actually spent napping? You decide.
3pm – flop into bed, startling Sylvester who was already taking a nap. Sylvester immediately moves in next to CCL lady’s pillow and being his purr. If not stroked quickly enough, the purr becomes a head bump, which can lead to concussion and possible brain injury.
3:05 – Marmalade joins in. Leaping lightly onto my liver or spleen, she spins around a few times then flops over for a nap.
3:10 – Tygrrrr appears, stomping up and down said body, causing growls from Marmalade and a temper tantrum from Sylvester who then stomps off, furious he’s being ignored.
3:15 – cat fight.
3:20 Tygrrr is vanquished to the bottom of the bed, Marmalade decides it’s time to get under the covers.
3:25 – Marmalade is still deciding whether to go COMPLETELY under the covers, or leave her tail hanging out.
3:30 – All cats have settled in.
3:35 – Oscar, who was happily napping upstairs, decides to see where everyone is. He bats at Tygrrr, steps on Marmalade and picks a fight with Sylvester.
3:40 – CCL announces a potty break and throws everyone off the bed.
3:45 – CCL settles back in, throws the covers over her head, says a prayer to the cat gods and curls into the fetal position.
3:50 – Sleep is attained.
3:55 – Major nightmares begin. Death by drowning, fire, vampire, zombie, large ferocious penguins ensue.
4:00 – All cats to the rescue, requesting to be petted at the same time, anything to save CCL from the nightmares.
4:04 – Michael Buble wakes me up singing “Fever”
Nap time with 3-6 cats in the house of the Crazy Cat Lady.
No need to ask about the big black circles under my eyes right?
