Does that picture say "Tranquility!" Quick, get me a pillow! I'm nodding off.
This week the spotlight of Let Sleeping Dogs Lie & Napping Cats Nap catches the sleeping image of Mia. We got these photos from Patty Sprong, the rescuer/foster/animal advocate. Mia shares her household with Patty and her husband, Steve, also an animal fan who demonstrates support and, of course, is the animals’ favorite man.
But, who is Mia? Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: “She is a foster-failure kitty....”
Show of hands, please, if you’ve ever found yourself with an unexpected cat who cleverly changed your plans. Foster failure -- it is a badge of joy, isn’t it! Patty explains Mia as a “foster-failure kitty who I adopted from Mazie’s Mission in 2014."
[LARRY NOTE: Keep reading -- we have some Mazie’s Mission artwork at the end of this report. And also, consider this entire report an endorsement of cats -- we support cats at readlarrypowell.com. Power to the Meower.]
Patty says that Mia “was rescued with her three kittens, and I fostered them all until they were adopted. Mia didn’t do well at adoption events, and so, after a year, I finally gave up and adopted her myself. She tolerates the foster dogs that come and go, and she graces us with her presence when she so chooses. My daughter recently caught her sleeping in a dog crate. We were getting a crate ready for a new foster dog, and she made herself right at home. I guess she had to christen it herself.
“As you can see, she is pretty comfortable sleeping anywhere, including in the dog-toy box or on my lap while I watch TV. She’s a happy girl, and we’re happy that she is no longer a pregnant teen on the street.”
Remember what I said about Steve being supportive? In Patty’s most recent note about Mia, she wrote, “Today she is asleep in a cat bed on my husband’s desk! Rough life.”
You see here the assorted Mia pictures mentioned in this story. The mood shot we opened with is, frankly, tranquilizing. Maybe you’re getting drowsy just looking at the photos of this very successful catnapper.
[REMEMBER, we’re always seeking photos of sleeping dogs, napping cats, drowsy critters and slumber-prone humans to demonstrate to the world’s insomniacs that they do, indeed, have a chance to nod off and catch some Zs. Send your photos and info to firstname.lastname@example.org and you’ll get the spotlight of our long-running weekend feature, Let Sleeping Dogs Lie & Napping Cats Nap.]
