The mysterious case of the snoring cat
I'm about to get all deep and meaningful on you, so look out:
My cat snores. He also meows in his sleep. (This picture is not him, but it might as well be - it could pass as him by anybody who knows him.)
Does anybody else find this as odd or hilarious as I do?
I'm sitting here studying and wondering what the strange soft grunting noise is, and then I worked out that I had heard it before. I found that it was coming from the cat, curled up in the corner fast asleep.
I wonder if he knows how funny I find this.
It has woken me up before, and then my husband woke up when I nearly fell out of the bed laughing at the snoring, meowing cat. Then the cat woke up and the fun was over.
Yes, he is overweight. No, I'm not a bad fur-parent - all the cats get the same measured amount as each other. I think he scavenges and gets fat off the neighbourhood mice. Perhaps this is what he dreams of. Food.
I think there's something in that for all of us, don't you? ;)
