Tuesday Doozy of a Snoozy: Summer Version

During these long, hot days of summer, we often cannot find anything better to do than snooze. We still love our Space Station and play with it everyday (see tomorrow’s Wordless Wednesday post for more on this). Other than that, running, jumping and playing do not interest us.

Since we haven’t shared a Tuesday Doozy of a Snoozy with you in a while, we decided to reveal some preferred summer napping spots and positions. As cats, however, we do tend to change our minds often with regard to what those favorites are. As our tagline says, “Cats are predictably unpredictable.” And that’s just how we like it.


Lily Olivia - summer position.


Misty May - summer


Astrid - summer


Cooper Murphy - summer


Calista Jo


Mau and C.M. - summer


Most of us don’t appear to have expired like Lily Olivia in photo #1 or be in a coma like Cooper Murphy in photo #3, nor are we all even snoozing. But, you all know, when those camera-clicking crazies come around, it’s not always easy to ignore them. You may also notice that Lisbeth and Giulietta are missing. Giulietta pretty much refuses to come out of her cat tree cubby unless it is breakfast, dinner or bed time. Lisbeth has been splitting her time between the catio and the very top platform of the dining room cat tree. Somehow she has been able to escape the paparazzi. MOUSES! We’d sure like to know her secret.

Anyhoo, we hope you enjoyed our summer snoozies. Do you have a favorite place to lounge and snooze on hot days in the summer or do you just plop down anywhere?

Since we snagged our post title from one of Mom’s favorite songs by the The Lovin’ Spoonful from the summer of 1966, we thought we’d share it with you. This version is from a live performance in 1986. (The video from YouTube is labeled incorrectly as Loving Spoonful.)



If we’re awake, we’ll see you all tomorrow for Wordless Wednesday.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

p.s. Mouse over the photos for secret messages.

We love your summer photos ! We lounge and snooze on the ground under the bushes, in the shadow, when the weather is too hot. Purrs

Good idea, guys. This hot, stormy weather does not lend itself to much else. Well, reading and writing, maybe. Maggie sleeps about 85% of the time, now. Chloe Jo sleeps a lot right now, too. Grizelda and George not as much! Kenzie stays busy with Chipmunk Patrol, while Stella keeps up with Kenzie Patrol. Ha! I just try to keep up with all of them as best I can. HUGS.

All of you look so warm and happy there in your places to snooze. I have several favorites. The recliner, the platform rocker and any bed I can fine. Oh, my tree of course. Top nest. The crow’s next. xoxox

So Cute photos :’)
I need one.

I love your kitties. You do such a good job of sharing them with us – we can’t help but fall in love with them all. While we love the addition of Cooper Murphy, we miss Fiona too.

Great photos of all of you snoozers! It appears as though you have some very fine places to snooze too 😀
Hope you are all having a great summer! Love to your Mama.

Excellent snoozy positions from everyone. I think Cooper might win a prize for more precariously relaxed.

Brian Frum July 11, 2017 at 8:46 pm

Y’all are rockin’ those pictures today gang!

They call these the Dog Days of Summer…but really they are the Cat Days of Summer. We’re always looking for a cool spot to stretch out and snooze. We love those snoozing pics of yours…we’ve laid in many of those same positions.

My favorite place to nap is right on Mommy’s pillow. It’s so comfy!

Wish I could figure out how to snap photos of sleeping cats, because they ALWAYS wake up just as I get within range! I do not use a flash, nor any clicking sound…but they still sense my presence and my wonderful shot of a napping kitty has disappeared. Rats!

BeadedTail July 11, 2017 at 10:33 am

We sleep anywhere, any time but usually in the same room as our peeps. SomeTortie takes her naps seriously year round.

Fabulous photos of snoozing kitties! It never ceases to amaze me how they always seem to find a new snoozing place just when I’ve figured out the first ones. Always on the move — so to speak! Love the Lovin’ Spoonful! 😀

Those are great snoozie pics! Our cats seem to have a new favorite snoozie place every week. It’s really funny how they rotate between spots! 🙂

Everyone here is chuckling over Cooper Murphy. That is really sound sleeping!!

Now this is how you snooze the summer away! You all sure are snoozie pros. Can you give us some tips. Us furbabies here aren’t really up for much change, so we all have our favorite spots to snooze all year long, but we sure do sprawl out in them a lot more in heat like we’re having. Happy snoozing!

Oh I think napping/lounging/snoring are required activities for kitties in the summer. I plop wherever I find a ploppable spot myself usually in Cooper’s favorite position too – on my back with tummy up and available for a smoochie. Stay cool!!

Hugs, Teddy

I will flop down anywhere to relax, even when it’s not summertime – my human calls me the laziest Somali cat ever!

Wow, those are great snoozy doozies!
Minko would plop down any old place…but he also might go to a cushioned seat under the table. He thought he was hiding:)

Pipo has places on the couch or other so called nests. He rarely plops down in random spots.

When its hot here, we see a lot more laziness:)
