A Sleepy Sunday Selfie

Tonks volunteered to snap a selfie for today. So, I handed the camera off to her. She got her shot all lined up, posed, and then nodded off.

This seems to happen a lot around here. We'll be all ready to snap a purrfectly cute selfie of a kitty in a purrfectly cute pose, but then said kitty falls asleep. At least sleepy selfies are cute, too!

Happy Sunday to all!

Doodle of the Day

We're starting a new series of doodles today. This series is set throughout the rooms of a log cabin. The reason for this is in part because I have always been fascinated by and fond of log cabins. I'd honestly love to live in one some day. Also, like many of our upcoming doodles, this log cabin series is some more concept art. When it comes to the stories I've mentioned I'm writing, it really helps me to draw out settings and other elements in my sketchbook. But I digress.

If you're worried there won't be kitties in these log cabin doodles, worry not. A certain feline lives in this doodled up log cabin, and he'll be taking us through the entire house. Today, he's starting the log cabin tour outside.

As you can perhaps see, this log cabin is nestled in a bit of a forest. I do think it would be lovely to live in a log cabin in the woods. That being said, in reality, I wouldn't want to live too far from civilization, as that's where the WiFi, grocery stores, and other necessities are.

Did you know?

Sleep studies have been performed on many species in the world. Did you know these studies revealed that cats are not the animal who sleep the most hours per day? We've all heard and very likely witnessed that cats sleep an average of 15 hours per day. Dogs sleep an average of 14 hours per day. What kinds of animals sleep more hours than this per day? Certain types of bats sleep roughly 20 hours per day. Some armadillos and possums sleep an average of 18 hours per day, as does the python. Studies found that owl monkeys sleep right around 17 hours per day. As a bonus, and out of curious, I also researched the sleep habits of sloths, and like cats they average 15 hours per day. When compared to some members of the animal world, humans sleep very little.

Humans sleep very little, compared to other animals...especially the cats who walk on their humans at 4 am...

Nothing wrong with a sleeping selfie. My joke is that my body gave up sleep for Lent and now won't realize Lent is over.
