Have I mentioned before that a certain cat that adopted us manages to keep me endlessly amused?
I mean for a cat that doesn't really do much & seems to live solely to eat & sleep, one would wonder what can be amusing about that.

When he is actually awake he only makes a noise for one of two reasons - he wants food, or one of his special rubdowns. The rubdowns look positively vicious to me, but they rid him of loose hair & Hercules the Hedonist enjoys them immensely! So much so, that the second the Mailleman walks in the door from work - he'll run to the door, turn to look at the Mailleman & give his very distinctive 'Meow' to get out there.

Come to think of it - every time the Mailleman walks outside, Herc lies down in his 'ready for a rub' position. Hedonist!

Nothing cracks me up as much as that cats sleep positions though! I don't think a day goes by when I don't take a photo of him sleeping....after all it is pretty much all he does!
Some of his positions even have names - although I don't have a photo of the one we call his 'road kill' position.

"Noooo - not that neighbour again!"

"Take Me - I'm Yours!"

"I was here first human!!"

A just so I don't seem to be playing favorites here is one of poor Bizkit. She certainly appears more dignified than she used to be before Herc walked into our lives...even if she is sitting on my newly sorted cross stitch flosses!

- even if it is just a cat needlework!"

Of course like any typical kid - he decides to come awake just when I want to snuggle down with my book.

"C'mon - you really don't want to read."

Bizkit looks like she's checking your sorting and deciding whether or not to give it the seal of approval. Herc the Hedonist is such an entertaining boy! Love all those poses, Herc!
