While working away on some video projects here in Iowa one afternoon, I observed the seemingly difficult life cats lead. Shown in chronological order of course...
Xavier takes a nap.
The camera's noise rouses the slumbering beast.
Monique enjoys her lazy solitude.
"The paparazzi won't leave me alone..."
"...so I might as well start some trouble." Boxing match followed.
"That was a tough bout. Time for a nap again."
Throw in some meal times, bathroom breaks, and play periods, and you've summed up a cat's incredibly stressful day. And when it's all over, they decide to crawl in bed with you at night, stretching out fully and taking all available extra space, relegating you to a little corner of the mattress. It would seem felines are the superior species!
