Doing what they do best

Sometimes I think “everything I need to know I learned from my cats.” We should follow their example, and do what we do best:

Shadow and Patches

This picture is remarkable, but obviously not because they’re sleeping. They’re very good at that part. No, what’s truly amazing is that they’re doing it together. They’re on top of my ironing board in front of the shelf full of quilting stuff, which is usually reserved for Patches alone. I have to help Shadow understand that frequently, since he usually gets up there to start trouble, not sleep. This evening I came back to the studio after dinner, and there they were on the board together. Definitely a noteworthy moment, since they’ve only been this close together (calmly, without the claws and teeth) for any length of time once before in the last year and a half. ZZZzzz…
