Cat Naps

It's been a while since I have updated you on Emma's health: she has been doing relatively well
thanks to a cortisone-based treatment, but I am afraid that the next couple of weeks are going to be rough.
 Once again, thanks for your emotional support and good wishes!

In the meantime, it's been very hot, and our cats are busy sleeping most of the day
(above, Tina in front to her virtual version; below, Chapi around my head).
Well, cats love to sleep, and I love watching them sleep - in fact, I find them irresistible. 
I am not at all surprised that so many artist have captured these moments! 
In fact, this gallery cound go on and on and on...
