Sleepy Kitty by Princess Cat

It’s so hard being a beautiful fluffy cat.

I try to get a good eight hours sleep a day, fitting it around all my other duties: playing, eating, supervising the human, entertaining Fanta dog, hiding and making the human search for me, sneaking into handbags and other places the human pretends I don’t belong, all those things a cat just has to do.

I have to get my sleep during the day, because my nights are even more busy. I’ve got midnight zooming around the house to do. I have to yowl and wake up the human when the litter tray needs scooping. (No, it can’t wait until morning, I’ve already had that conversation with the human.) I have to sit on the human’s head while I look out the window that’s above the bed. I have to patrol and make sure no wildlife has sneaked in under doors or anything.

With all my nocturnal responsibilities, it’s no wonder, I don’t get any sleep at night. So that’s why I have to get in so much sleep during the day, even though I try to keep up with the daytime workload as well. Otherwise I end up being a very tired and grumpy cat.

Being a beautiful fluffy cat really is hard work.

Princess, a sealpoint ragdoll cat.


Princess is a seal-point ragdoll cat. Her hobbies include naps, waking the human in the middle of the night, tummy tickles, knocking things off shelves, evading grooming, and petty theft (stealing paintbrushes, pincushions, etc.) Her special skills include jingle ball and fluffy mouse chasing. Her key goal in life is to be adored by everyone, but not actually touched unless she specifically requests it. She is never allowed outside, partly to protect wildlife, partly to keep debris out of her hair, and mostly because she is so naïve she wouldn’t survive five minutes outside. Also known as Pretty Kitty and Snuggle Cat.
