I was going to write a bit more about practice journals today, but was inspired to post a video instead after seeing the photo of Thompson using Diego-san as a pillow on Cat's Eye this morning.
When I was in college, my friend had three cats who use to curl up together and sleep. I thought that was the most amazing thing. When I got older and had cats of my own, they might sleep near each other (or not), but they didn't curl up together. Cricket and John were the first, and I was delighted. I don't know why seeing cats curled up together sleeping is so comforting; I just like it.
Life couldn't be better now, with six cats sleeping their days away in pairs, trios, and sometimes piles. This is a typical daytime configuration in the middle of winter, far away from the drafty walls.
This is the video. You know that Gigi had to be purring to be breathing like this. Doesn't that look like just the best kind of pillow, with warm soft fur and a built-in white noise soundtrack?
I'm thinking an afternoon nap would be awfully nice. Too bad I need to finish my practice.
