The Fine Art of Sleeping - one black cat's life!

Finn stays upstairs, on the bed... he's missing out on all the fun outdoors, now that spring has finally arrived in the Netherlands. Gek! (crazy)


He loves to sleep on his back... my brother is a silly cat!


Finn does it best.... Maybe he travels back to our home planet while he appears to be sleeping?

These drawings (and watercolor painting) were done by our American mom, Judith Nijholt-Strong. She can never catch me sleeping, unlike my brother Finn, because I can't sit still long enough to be drawn or painted ... too much to do outside on planet earth.

Blog updating delays - a cat's excuse:
Finn and I know we've been remiss about updating our blog - we're just cats, you know!?! Anyway, yes, it is full blown spring all over in the Netherlands and I've been busy catching birds :D :D Our humans aren't too thrilled about that, but hey, can't rely on Finn to bring in the goods...he's always sleeping!

Sometime, soon, we'll show you how beautiful our garden is...err, I mean the humans' garden!!

Tot ziens!
