Notes from a parish cat and his author Julie Mackenzie

My photo
I am Father Tom Fish, esteemed member of the religious team at Temptation of Christ Parish in the novels by author Julie Mackenzie. As to my background, I was invited into the rectory as a stray, laid on the charm, and was invited to stay, even honorarily ordained and no less spiritual than my sidekick Father Will. He dotes on me to high heaven and forgives all of my street cat proclivities, whatever the hell that means.

Heaven, An Escape and An Appetizer

Hello, boys and girls!!

The subject came up over the weekend about how much we sleep. We cats have a free ticket to enter the Land of Nod any time we feel like it. See a cat with insomnia, never. Ever think about that?

Here I am sweetly dreaming. I must say the housekeeper took a pretty good pic of me, showing my ear tufts at their best.

I looked up some quotes about sleep and was amazed at the variety of thoughts on it:

"Sleep is one of the most innocent creatures there is and a sleepless man the most guilty."
                                                                                    ~~Franz Kafka
(didn't he wake up as a bug?)'s another:

"I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I'm awake." ~~Ernest Hemingway

(Ernest, we're happy you didn't sleep too much!)

and finally, I really like this one, very inspirational, hehe:

"She used to say she could taste sleep and that it was as delicious as a BLT on fresh French bread."
                                                                                  ~~Rebecca Wells

Okay, that's enough. Time to get some grub!!
Have a good day, all!

Your obedient servant and snoozer,

I wish I could sleep like a cat! Actually I just wish I could sleep for more than an hour at a time.

We must be careful not to sleep our lives away!

Oh yes, we felines have a true, deep understanding of Sleep. Unlike many hoomins. PS: very spiffy ear tufts.
