Nap

"Today, the day after “springing forward” an hour for daylight saving time, has been set aside as National Napping Day. 

The day was first established in 1999 by the Boston University professor William Anthony and his wife, Camille, who hoped to bring awareness to the health benefits of napping and the importance of sleep.

This also coincides with March being designated as National Sleep Awareness Month, and pairs with World Sleep Day on the Friday before the March Equinox."

If you have difficulty with napping, simply mimic a professional:
Not a care in the world!

We don't get DST for another 3 weeks, but it is a real pain with all the meds I have to take at set times. I wish I could nap like that.

This morning the day after the time change Precious was still asleep at 5:15 this morning. Her little body still thought it was only 4:15. However she was willing to eat breakfast quite quickly.

It is the worst morning of the year, even worse than Reverse Christmas

I am perfectly aware of sleep, especially when I am not getting any. As for cats sleeping...anywhere, anywhen, anyhow...
