When You Just Can’t Stay Awake…

So you’re sitting at your computer–you’re a cat, by the way: I want to make that clear–and oh! All those lovely birds outside! Separated from you only by a window. But you are just so terribly sleepy… sleepy… sleepy… klunk! Lights out. But you’re a cat, and anyone can see your ears are still awake.

    1. I know. They are amazing creatures. They also rouse from sleep to a state of alertness more quickly than any other mammal. Snakes, OTOH, can sleep so deeply that you’d swear that they were dead. Do lizards do that?

    2. I think that reptiles conserve energy when they feel safe. Of course, cats do too. After 8 hours of sleep, I and my cat both woke up. I’m having my morning coffee and she’s napping on my lap. 🙂
