Lucy - Queen of the Nap

The 2012 Summer Olympics have officially kicked off, and did anyone guess that the festivities would involve the Queen of England leaping out of a helicopter with James Bond? LOL! Hilarious! I have always pictured Queen Elizabeth as this rather grim woman who occasionally steps out onto the royal balcony to wave solemnly at her subjects. Granted, I know almost nothing about her. Okay, not almost nothing - nothing. Apparently she has a sense of humor! I love it.

Well, we have our own Queen in this house.

Meet Lucy Bowtie, Queen of the Nap. Of course, all cats are good at napping. But I believe that Lucy's napping prowess is on the level of royalty.

She can nap anywhere, anytime.

Alone, or with company.

On her bed, or anyone else's bed. What the cat wants, the cat gets.
The dogs can sleep on the floor.

Since she has a habit of walking on me and meowing loudly when I am trying to sleep,
sometimes it is fun to poke her and wake her up.

But you have to watch out for "Irritated Feline Super Powers."
They shoot out through the eyes, and can be dangerous.

  5. Our Miss Susie Hutchins has been working on her sleep skills rather intensively these days.

  6. So cool! Alien eyes!!! Well, Miss Queen of Nap, we truly hope that you are still able to wave at your subject on that glass balcony you're perching in.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  7. I love your Queen I must have missed the other Queen jumping oh well maybe the next Olympics:) B

  8. WTG Lucy you are Queen of Naps...your form and places to nap are fitting for your Queenly status too.
    Mom says all the time she wishes she could learn how to take cat naps.
    Hugs Madi

  9. Yup. Sure looks like Lucy has it all figured out. Wouldn't it be fun to be Queen of the Nap?! LOL

  10. I thought I was Queen of snoozing/napping/chilling out but I have to admit that Lucy can show me a thing or two.

    Love and licks, Winnie
