Doozy of a Snoozy
All cats are good nappers. We see it everyday. We know it. When I ran across this old photo a few days ago, I knew I had to share it and compare it to a more recent one.
This is not Cooper Murphy but MacKenzie, our former ginger tabby. That bed in front of the window was his favorite place to snooze. If awake, he could spy on the dogs and kitties that lived next door at the time. Mac got his wings in 2011. He had inoperable stomach cancer.
Fast forward to 2017 to another ginger tabby, who also enjoys a good nap.
Cooper Murphy is not too particular about where he naps, just as long as it is somewhere on the catio during the day. At night he usually passes out on one of the ham-micks. Tonight he happens to be sprawled on his back on our bed—asleep and snoring!
Though MacKenzie enjoyed many of the things Cooper does, we did not have a catio when he was alive. Like Lily Olivia, Mauricio and Misty May, he was allowed outside during daylight hours. However, he was a momma’s boy through and through and never was too far from my side. If I worked in the garden, he was right there to help. If I was cooking, he was “tied to my apron strings.” He spent his last six months snuggled next to me in the recliner as I recuperated after breaking my leg.
On the other paw, Cooper mostly is a solitary guy, who does his own thing. I suspect that this difference comes from the fact that MacKenzie bonded with us when he was a kitten, and Cooper Murphy did not join the family until he was about 15 months old.
Cat guardians know that all cats are good nappers, but that each has his own unique purrsonality. In my opinion, that is what makes every kitty special!

What a cute snoozing ! Purrs
Isabella is a purrfessional napper! Looks like Mac and Cooper Murphy know how to combine the cute with their nap!
Seeing these two nappers makes me realize I had better get myself to bed, else I will be napping the whole of my day later, MOL!!!
So sweetly they rest;
Kitties do it best!
I think cats really know how to relax. We could learn a lot by paying attention to them. Hugs!
Our mom sees similarities in the way Izzy naps and the way Russell did. Izzy is a world-class snorer, though!
KISS KISS KISS KISS KISS KISS!!!!!
We wonder if Cooper Murphy is a solitary guy because he was outside on his own for awhile. He sure hit the jackpot when he found your house.
That is one happy snoozy Cooper Murphy!
It is a treat to be able to “meet” the ones that come before we got to know you all. We are great nappers too.
Ginger tabbies are exquisite creatures … look at those bellies!!! Holy cat! And those pink paw pads!
MacKenzie was a cute kitty and Cooper Murphy is too. XO
Hannah and Lucy know just what to do when they are tired as they just enjoy snuggling with their Mum.
Mac was a doll baby – we gingers REALLY know how to snooze up a storm don’t we? Doesn’t matter when or where. Love the photo of Coop on the catio too – My Mom wishes like crazy WE had a catio for ME as I do love being outside. We’re doing harness training now which is no fun but a catio would be – well – heavenly!
We love seeing all this orange tabby goodness today! Perhaps Angel MacKenzie left some napping tips lying around for Cooper Murphy to find. My orange boy sounds like your MacKenzie, such a momma’s boy. Of course, his momma doesn’t mind one bit.
And of course a huge concatulations to Marty and Ralphie!
What sweet napping pictures. Thank you soooo much! We are so excited to be the winners!
Marty and Ralphie
MacKenzie was a beautiful cat like Cooper. You are so right, they all have their own personalities and their own way of sleeping.
Such cute pics. Hmm, they’ve given me an idea…. zzzz! 🙂
Cute nappin pics!
We all know how to nap here! I can even do it and be social at the same time. 🙂
