Cats make me tired. Actually, they make me want to take a nap. No matter where they select for their (8 hour) nap, they look comfortable….even the kitchen floor. David says it’s because cats don’t have shoulders. I loved that line and wrote a funny cat book with that title, but do not have a publisher, yet. I used it in my second children’s book, “Emmie’s First Journal”, on page 59.

My Day 16 painting is of Thomas “Tomboy” Bower. He is two years old and Abby Cat’s worst enemy and best friend forever. We try to call him Thomas, thinking it will give him some dignity. His nick-name, Tomboy, suits him much better but it’s worth a try. Tomboy has significantly changed things  in our family; I didn’t realize Abby Cat was perfect until we got Tomboy. When my 30 in 30 Challenge is complete, I’ll get back to blogging about “Life With Them”…meaning Abby Cat and Tomboy.

“Cats are intended to teach us that not everything in nature has a function.”

__Garrison Keillor

That’s a funny quote, and one of my favorites, but I don’t entirely agree. The function of a cat is to be the object of love and admiration, and our endless training in patience.
