The stately Persian has a long history as a lap cat. Bred to be indoor cats, Persians do not have a tremendous amount of “street smarts.” What they are adept at, however, is “sleep smarts.” These fluffy kitties can lounge with the best of them, and they’re more than happy to teach you all about their lazy lifestyle — just as long as you wait until after their nap.

Here, Persians share some words of wisdom about what they know best… catching some ZZZs.

1. If you are caught sleeping on the job, say you were working so hard you had to give your brain a rest.

2. A woman needs her beauty rest. You’ll be wise not to wake her.

3. When someone asks you get up and go do something, just snore louder. They’ll give up and leave you alone.

4. If you ever get the urge to exercise, immediately lie down and go to your safe place. 

5. Snuggling with a friend can be a bonding experience. As long as said friend does not have night terrors.

6. Pretend you are listening to your spouse droll on about their crazy co-worker while you’re asleep by keeping your head upright. They won’t know the difference.

7. Falling asleep to a television program is perfectly acceptable. Exception: A “Too Cute” marathon on Animal Planet.

8. A couple that naps together, stays together.

9. If you wake up to a paw full of dollars, do not ask any questions. Simply add it to the kitty.

10. Never get out of bed for anything less than $10,000. Or catnip.

  • я покопался немного, нашел этот моментFour o’clock in the afternoon. Flies dead on the paeemvnt. Dogs wet mops in their kennels. Shadows herded under trees. Downtown stores shut up and locked. The lake shore empty. The lake full of thousands of people up to their necks in the warm but soothing water. перевод:Четыре часа дня. На мостовой — дохлые мухи. В конурах комьями влажной шерсти — взмокшие собаки. Под деревьями жмутся короткие тени. Магазины в городе закрылись, двери заперты. Берег озера опустел. Тысячи людей забрались по горло в воду — хоть она и теплая, а все таки легче Я бы, наверное, сказал, что в конурах мокрыми тряпками лежат собаки ..хотя с другой стороны собаки то не потеют!
