Summer Daydream Caturday

It’s summer and you know what that means. Warm window whiffies and daydreams, hanging with friends and doing what cats do best. Normally our boys tend to hang out in pairs but on a hot day I found Merlin, Gris Gris and Odin plotzed out on the porch. When this happens you know this a choice. The porch is thirty feet long with dozens of places to nap and yet they stayed nearby.


Earlier that day, I found Merlin and his pair-bonded bro Gris Gris napping together. You can tell the extent of bonding by how much and how often cats touch.

At first I thought Merlin had placed his leg unconsciously on Gris Gris in his sleep but I realized neither of them was asleep. Merlin had one eye open and I can only imagine what he was thinking.


We may think cats do a whole lot of nothing. They may beg to differ. Cats do plenty. They think secret thoughts… wiggle their toes…

and they are daydream believers in all that is true. Happy Caturday. The Saturday Photo Hunt theme this week is daydream where you’ll find other daydreamers.

  1. Great paintings! That is the kind of info that should be shared around the web. Disgrace on Google for not positioning this post higher! Come on over and seek advice from my website . Thank you =)

  2. What a lovely sunny relaxing post.
    All the cats relaxing in the summer sun.
    I love the one with Merlin’s leg over
    Gris Gris. Keeping him close, being able to feel him, He was having happy thoughts!

  3. I love seeing the boys just hanging out, thinking Deep Thoughts. My Scouty and John are like Merlin and Gris Gris, where there’s one the other is always near, if not touching.

  4. Yes you are right, we think that they are dozing but in truth they are highly alert and in tune with everything that is going on.

  5. If we as humans only captured the time we truly waste…………….My three younger ferals were in my yard this morning playing in the fog before Izzy went out. It lifted my heart to see them enjoying life because they had been spayed and neutered and just had to think about playing together. Cat bonds are truly some of the deepest and strongest there are. The Monkees had it right in the first few lines of Daydream Beliver….

    Oh, I could hide ‘neath the wings
    Of the bluebird as she sings.
    The six o’clock alarm would never ring.
    Luvs Skeeter and Izzy and the Feral Gang >^..^<

  6. Humans think we’re doing nothing? We have very important cat business to ponder while we lounge. Meanwhile, they’re busy tap-tapping on the computer. Who is the one doing nothing, anyhow?

  7. What crazy humans think cats “do a whole lot of nothing!” I think humans make themselves busy with a lot of very useless activities! And I bet you agree with me too. 😉
