Noll Finds Tiggy in Drowsy Land


Today was an exceptional day. Unseasonably warm. A steady breeze. The morning sun strong and bright. The dirt fragrant and dry. The catnip at its finest.

Tiggy and Squeaker rolled and lolled in the little patch by the cellar door while I hunkered down amongst the violets and shade. Sun, warmth, the scent of catmint...there was no escape. In a matter of minutes, the drowsies overcame both Tiggy and Squeaker.

I can't say for sure, but I think Tiggy was "hugging" his catnip pillow.

Awww, Tiggy reminds me of the napping "Chessie" cat on the old train calendars. So cute!

You have the right idea, Tiggy. Hold on tight to the nip while you nap so it can't get away.

Hey Cyber-sibes: I didn't see the resemblance to the "Chessie" cat until you mentioned it. At our town's historic depot, there's a yellow caboose with the silhouette of "Chessie." I passed by it today...Tiggy in the nip does look like it!
