Felines and Insomnia-NEVER!

Hello.  It's Emily.  I hope everyone had a nice week.   Here it's been a busy week but a lazy Sunday.   Well, any day can be a lazy day for me!  It's dreary outside with a chill rain  and a raw wind.  Mom stayed inside and tidied.   Mom also read.   I helped out by taking her spot on the sofa and keeping it warm when she had to get up.   Mom really appreciated it!
Here are some tulips Mom saw at the grocery store.  She says they cheer up your heart!
She also drank lots of tea.  She loves her new kettle.
Purrs from Winston.  Excuse me if I don't get up!   Can you believe it?  But Mom taped me earlier this week and apparently I was snoring.   Loudly.   Mom said it was cute.  Whatever!   I don't suffer at all from this strange malady called "insomnia"  You humans, I'll never understand!     Mom says that sometimes things that bother her during the day seem so much worse in the middle of the night!

Do your humans sometimes have this strange problem!?  Imagine NOT sleeping.  Sometimes I'll try and help by purring beside her but I'm not going to spoil her.
Hi again from Emily.   Yes, not sleeping sounds like such an odd thing.   Even if something bothers that bug on the wall I can't catch.  Or maybe Winston stealing my favorite toy.   Things like this never keep me from getting my beauty rest.   Purrs.
I'll close for now with this photo...
Mom loves snowdrops.  She says they are small and delicate but sturdy.  A sign of hope.

We hope everyone has a great week!   Cuddle your felines.  Purrs from Winston and Emily.
PS-Happy kitties do snore  


  1. Winston, that is a really great picture of you sleeping. And you're right, this no sleeping thing is not understandable by US either.

  2. Hi to both of you, and to your mom! No, we don't understand this "insomnia" thing, either. Our human has no problem falling asleep, but staying asleep sometimes is a problem. More so in past, very challenging years. Now it's more often her middle-aged bladder that gets her up in the night. Haha!

    BTW, the tulips are lovely, as is that tea cup and pretty note book. Your mom seems to be very good at taking care of her Self, which is something to be envied and emulated.

    Purrs to you all for a good week ahead!

  3. My Mama stays up late every single night, she says it is a menopause "thang" love, Cody catchatwithcarenandcody

  4. Hi Winston and Emily, you both are looking very well. Your Mom is so lucky to have both of you!
    Your Mom's teacup and notebook are so pretty.
    Sunday was a rather dreary day, glad you kept your Mom company.
    Have a good week!

  5. Humans need more coaching from their feline friends on the art of sleep, obviously! I too love snowdrops, and am happy to say we have a bumper crop this year. Will take some photos when the sun comes out

  6. We kitties definitely have the market on sleeping. Our beans could learn a thing or two!

    Mom bean loves the flowers...she hopes springs arrives here soon.

  7. Our Mama also believes flowers are good for the soul . . .especially on dark and gloomy rainy days! We think the more your Mama watches the art of relaxation by you kitties, the less problems she may have sleeping! ;p
