Sleep Sleep Sleep

Question. Is it ok to take a little human back home when they are disrespecting Mr. Bowie’s rules? He doesn’t want to play anymore, kiddo. All Mr. Bowie wants to do is sleep sleep sleep…


Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

  1. Mr. Bowie looks perplexed regarding what to do about the small human. The Boys of Salmon Brook Farms recommend a good dose of catnip, and then hide on top of the highest bookshelf. Sleep will come! 🙂

    • Hi Lavinia! Thanks for the wise advice from the Boys of Salmon Brook Farms. Actually, Mr. Bowie ran away and climbed up his highest cat tower. The little human couldn’t reach him anymore… 😉

      Have a nice day! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!”

  2. The little human and Mr. Bowie, you are both so lovely, I know what you mean, our grandson like that and our Princess wants to sleep… Thank you, Blessing and Happiness, Love, nia

  3. Mr. Bowie has the proper, pleading look on his face in response to the devious look on the little human’s face. How did you happen to end up with a little human in the house?

    • The little human, the oldest great-grand child of our family, loves to pay Mr. Bowie a visit in the weekends. Mr. Bowie on the other hand, prefers his naps in the afternoon…

  4. There’s a time for play and a time for sleep and it doesn’t always “mesh” with what the humans want. Having a high cat tree that is “unavailable” to the humans helps a lot though!!

    Hugs, Pam, Angel Sam and Teddy

  5. Poor Mr. Bowie. Little humans are in a different time zone from us cats. They don’t understand the delicate balance of being asleep and being awake. One can only hope that little human will soon learn.

    • The little humans should get a special education at their local schools concerning the time zones of cats! Or maybe you cats could treat them a lesson!

    • Van mij wel, maar ik vrees dat Bowie niet veel zin heeft om naar jullie campus te komen. Hij zou zich niet veilig voelen denk ik… 😉
      Ga maar op zoek naar een troostgevend snoepje, ergens in een schuif ligt misschien nog wel een Chocotoff! 😉

  6. Kids have to be taught how to respect animals. Distract the kid with ice cream! 🙂
    Also, don’t cats sleep like 20 hours a day? No wonder it is all Mr Bowie wants to do! 🙂

  7. Hello Herman and Mr. Bowie — Just like humans, animals have limits and boundaries, although it is more difficult for them to express them in forms that humans can understand. I have seem many “grown-ups” continue to pester a cat or dog or bird way beyond that animal’s tolerance for such behavior. Some animals will eventually “strike out” with a paw or claw to let the human (big or little) know that “Enough is enough!” Mr. Bowie is way too polite to even consider such rude behavior, so his strategy may be to withdraw into sleep and hope that his human (that would be you, Herman) will set the boundary for him.
    Good luck with this tricky issue. We are all learning to honor boundaries and limits with both our human and animal friends. It’s a process but I think we are making progress. In any case, a bit of coffee ice cream will help smooth things over. Cheers and Meow, Alia

  8. I’m not hat crazy about being woken up when I want a nap either, so I sympathize with Mr. Bowie. I also understand the desire of the little human. I would want to play with Mr. Bowie too.

  9. Every time our door bell rings, Samurai and Mischa disappear into the safety of their bedroom, especially if it is the little humans from across the street. They don’t come out until the coast is clear!

  10. The kid looks too big to fit under the bed, and too short to see on top of the closet. I’d recommend those places Mr Bowie. The nice thing about company is that sooner or later they leave, ha!
