Cats Sleep on SFF: Der Marsianer

GiantPanda introduces us to Schnute:

This is a stray my Mom has been feeding for about a year.

The cat has learned to trust Mom, got the run of the house, mostly prefers DVDs to books and likes to cuddle. Goes by the name of Schnute (German for pout).

Mom still is adamant that this is Not Her Cat (well… maybe part time…)

Cats Sleep on SFF: Tales from the Loop

Hampus Eckerman can really speed through his TBR list now that he’s so much help finding those ripping good yarns:

Sir Scrittles has now been joined by Nevyn in refusing to sleep on SFF. Sir Scrittles seemed to have a fondness for Poe’s The Raven-popup book, but it would hardly survive his interest. Nevyn is more interested in Simon Stålenhag’s Tales from the Loop in its Swedish edition.

Cats Sleep on SFF: And dream perhaps of transcendence

Ken Richards offers this photo as a memorial:

Here is Butters, who we farewelled tonight, aged 15 and a bit, considering whether he should upload himself into Ken McLeod’s Corporation Wars.

We will miss him.

Cats Sleep on SFF: Avram Davidson

Lela Buis sends along a new picture of Spot, wide awake on Avram Davidson’s The Enemy of My Enemy.

Sorry, Spot’s not sleepy again. She’s suspicious about that camera. 

Note that the price on this paperback is $.60. There’s been a bit of inflation over the years.

Cats Sleep on SFF: The Pleasant Profession of Robert A. Heinlein

Never mind the headline, Farah Mendlesohn’s new book is obviously keeping these cats awake!

Michael J. Walsh snapped the photo of his purrfect pair. “On the left, the black-and-white cat, is Scooter. Cat on the right is Sally, aka Danger Cat.”

Cats Sleep on SFF: The Martian Named Smith

Chris M. Barkley adds a volume to our feline library —

My cat, MissJackson, was named by my daughter Laura and given to me a newly weaned kitten more than ten years ago.

As you can see, she is a book hoarder and on the lookout for anyone trying to swipe her stash…
