Every day in the life of a cat or the household they're living in is not the same. There's kind of a routine at our house, but that is subject to change at any given moment. Cats sleep sixteen hours a day, so you would think that they couldn't cause so much commotion in the remaining eight hours. What a silly person you are! Cat owners are prepared for anything at anytime and really expect nothing less.
Well, of course, the first order of the day is breakfast. Mine feel it's their duty to inform me if I'm not up right at the time they think I should be:
They are sitting by their bowls by the time I finally crawl out at 4:30 a.m. and make my way into the kitchen to feed them. This little guy already has a shuttle system built in to help him in the morning.
When the food is gone, it's playtime! Sometimes it's pretty vigorous with them chasing each other around the house; other times, it's an half-hearted attempt. So we can go from this:
By this time, they're sleepy and ready for a nap. Sometimes they will sleep in the same room, but, most of the time, they're in separate rooms. (Probably had enough of each other while they were playing) One curls up into a tiny little ball; the other one likes to let it "all hang out". My older one has actually laid in front of the fan this summer like this cat is doing. Cracks me up!
The other one is wrapped up as tight as this little Purrito.
And so it goes on through the day. Sleeping, eating, and playing. They have their favorite spots for doing all of these activities, but you can find them in some unusual places sometimes.
