Day 6: You’ll never guess the true reality of cats

This cat is dreaming of flying with tigers and becoming king.

I think we talked about this before, Bud. But I looked it up, and it’s true that younger cats can sleep as much as 16 hours a day, and older cats can snooze for up to 20. I always imagined (or maybe it was after I saw Inception) that the reality of kitty life is lived in a dreamland. But we’re the dream and when they sleep it’s part of a universal cat consciousness. In their alternate reality they swim, fly, and rule their own kingdom. It’s why the really don’t give a damn about humans and act all high and mighty when they’re “awake” with us.

  1. Yeah, I think you’re on to something. When cats aren’t sleeping, they’re meditating. Puddy likes the window sill, the foot of my bed and under my desk for most of her meditations, but she can find a quiet spot just about anywhere. She’s all zen like that.
