Cats are the masters of relaxation, as they spend most days basking in the sunlight, eating, and sleeping. Sometimes, we need to take a cue from the kitties around us and do as they do. Take a day or two just for yourself. Spend that time soaking up the sun by taking a nice walk around the neighborhood or just sunbathing in the yard at home. Use the day for cat naps and binging Netflix on the couch.
Last week, we had to take one of our kitties to the vet. It doesn't matter what the visit is for; it could be for a routine checkup or a round of vaccinations, and I'd still worry to no end. We've been fortunate enough that we haven't had to take our cats to the vet very often, and they're all typically in fair health. But, I think it's more the possibility that something could be wrong. It's the chance that the veterinarian will discover a health issue, or that something will go wrong during the visit.
I find it really interesting how cats interact with different people and animals. Of course, kitties have unique personalities and traits, just like humans do. But, they respond to different people in such a wide range of ways.
I think fireworks are beautiful, and I enjoy seeing them. However, the noise they make is very very loud. And my cats really don't like loud, sudden noises. Needless to say, the Fourth of July isn't their favorite holiday.
I looked over to see Zenny in a deep sleep with her head resting on an orange fish toy. She looked so peaceful and relaxed laying like that; it was incredibly endearing! It was a simple, but sweet moment to start the morning with, and it helped brighten my day. I hope these pictures of Zen can brighten your day, too!
