Just Right


SOLSC Day 10

Sleeping – we all do it – we all need it – many of us don’t get enough of it.

Because sleeping is so important, it is vital that we have a comfortable spot where we can lay our weary head and get the shut-eye we all need and deserve.

We are also familiar with the story of Goldilocks.  She had to try three different beds before she found one that was “Just right.”

I am hoping that these examples of where to sleep help you pick out the perfect spot if you don’t already have one.

Sometimes you need a place that is out of the way.  A place where no one can get to you or bother you.  This spot is just right.


Of course, you can never have too much padding at your sleeping spot.  In fact. the more padding the softer and better.  This spot is just right.


Sometimes when you sit down to eat you may realize that a little nap is more important than food.  If that is the case, then this spot is just right.


Have you ever just tried stretching out on the floor?  Some might think it is a bit hard, but with padding and warm rug this spot is just right.


A comfy recliner is the perfect spot for a mid-afternoon nap.  You can see that this spot is just right.


If you are bothered by noise and foot traffic it is important that you find a spot where you won’t in in danger of being walked on.  This spot is just right.


This might not be to  everyone’s liking, but if you don’t mind a bony area then this spot is just right.



Finally, when you are really tired there is no place like bed.  Don’t forget, if it’s cold remember to pull up the covers.  This spot is just right.

    Love your photo essay and the droll commentary. You’ve inspired me. At some point this month I’ve got to feature our kitten who, I swear, is the anti-depression drug everyone needs.

  2. YES-I’ve waited for your Goldilocks-like tale. Just Right is a great photo story. Your cat has the Life of Riley!

  3. aww – this is great! the juxtaposition, and the pictures with the words. sigh – cats have a pretty great life. good for them! thanks for sharing!

  4. This is great and so are the photos. It’s amazing how cats can turn everything into an art, even where to sleep!!

  5. Finding the right place for that nap – a bit of sun and a pillow would be just right for me. Love the photos!

  6. What a life! Lucky there are so many “just right” nap spots in the house. Do the humans have as much luck finding one? Our cat has 3 favourite spots: couch, in front of the fire, and on my bed at night.

  7. As soon as I saw your teaser at Two Writing Teachers, I knew what this would be about and I could not WAIT to read it! My son is sitting next to me today while I comment, and I had to slow WAY down so he could investigate every pose. Unfortunately I could only remember one of your cat’s names, which my son found very disappointing. What wonderful photos! They are adorable as they rest and relax all over the place.

  8. Love these pictures of cats. Cats always know the best place to sleep. I wish I had that ability too.

  9. Clever Goldilocks via your cats! Precious places purr-fect for sleeping!

  10. The cats and your signature humor in the same slice? Perfect combination!

  11. OMG! great post and just love the photos that tell the tale! It makes me want to curl up in a cozy spot, close my eyes, and drift away with warm sunshine melting on my face.
