Royal fluff and nonsense

The Queen requires her beauty rest.

The Queen requires her beauty rest.

Queen Fancypants is curled up into a fuzzy ball, dozing on the chair next to me.  The evening is cold and I rather envy her that luxurious fur coat.  Little disturbs her slumber; unlike our other cats, she isn’t prone to twitchiness.  She sleeps like a teenaged boy, dead to the world unless you make promising noises in the kitchen that suggest that food may be forthcoming.

The Queen is not useful.  She is decorative and she is entertaining, but she has no opposable thumbs and refuses to do chores.  She scratches up our furniture, sheds on everything in sight, randomly barfs up her food, and snips at Dr. Love.

And still…we feed her and her twirpy cat brothers.  We scoop their litter boxes and aren’t surprised that their poop stinks or that no matter how long they live with us humans, they still act like cats.  In other words, like fuzzy weirdos.

It is good to be loved.

    I envy the fur coat too.
    What I am wondering now is, since cats have such nice fur coats, why do they want all the blankets too….and the heating pad?

      Hmm…that is an excellent question! Haha!

    I have a cat like yours only she’s all black. She is the only one out of three who can’t go a full week without having a hairball or upchucking because she’s eaten too fast. She is very comforting though when my husband or I am sick and will try to play nurse maid… kind of that is.
