A day in the snooze of Inigo for Easy like Sunday - Inigo



Snoozing only seems simple. There are actually several steps to a successful nap that I don't think people appreciate. I shall try to break it down for you now.

Step one - eyes LOOK almost closed, but I'm actually watching
for any rogue Maine Coons that might interrupt what could
potentially be a wonderful snooze  

Step two - eyes close a little more, but I'm still aware of any
impending pounces


Step three - feeling secure. Lay my head down

Step four - all is quite on the Rumbley front. I feel secure enough
to lay my tired head all the way down

Step five - we have snooze!! The humans are amused at the little
sighing noises I make, if they only knew I was dreaming of
overthrowing them all, do you think they'd still be amused?

Inigo, every time we see you it is just like looking into a Whitey mirror! Especially in your Step 3 photo! Wow! Well done!

Aw poor kitty... welcome to our life! Jadzia pounces both of us for no reason every now and then... And then the bean likes to pick us up while we're snoozing, usually me!

You have explained the stages of snoozing purrfectly. We will have to check we are doing it right.

I don't see a problem with you overthrowing them. As long as you go earn the pay check to keep the house and provide food. Do you have a problem with that? Haha.

Misha said...

Snoozing is much more simple at my house, but I don't have any rumbly Maine Coons to worry about!

Cats in Trees said...

You have excellent snooze.

Pawsome snoozing technique! We'll be sure and practice it often!

I thinks those are very good steps to follow. I am taking notes! I have to watch my backside all the times!

Tara said...

Your form is purrfect! Do you ever chitter in your sleep? I think I'm dreaming of chasing birds...

Mr Koda MD said...

You're Famous!!

You mean your mum and dad don't know that their grip on power in your home is fragile at best? Talk about being in denial! :)

Huffle Mawson said...

Inigo you look adorable in your snooze routine.

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan said...

Beautifully done. Such style!

The Island Cats said...

Good job, Inigo! Enjoy that snooze!

Cory said...

You look so much like Whitey it makes me wanns purr!

Do you ever twitch in your sleep? Mom loves it when my paws move like I'm stalking mousies in my dreams.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Mom sez she already knows dat we kitties are plotting to overthrow da hooman rejeem. If we din't hafta earn green papers to keep da heat on we would do it. Jobs and kitties don't go together.

Busy Buttons said...

Oh, those are super cute pictures!

But now I'm inspired to take a nap myself...

Tatyanna (and Dorian too) said...

I'm very glad you posted this! Humans don't understand the complicated procedure of taking a proper nap! Dogs don't either I suspect! I find that my tail falls asleep in its own good time, but that's okay; if it wants to keep swatting away while I drift off, that's alright :) Does yours do that too?

Amy and The House of Cats said...

WE have to go through those same stages at our house too because you never know when someone else could decide to attack!
