Cats Sleep on SFF: Cat People

Chad Saxelid has a kitten with a sense of timing:

I was looking forward to introducing Alexia Lefoux, our new kitten, to the Filers. Little did I know she would pick the best way possible: climbing into my lap and falling asleep whilst I was reading a short essay discussing Val Lewton and Jacque Tourneur’s classic 1942 film Cat People.

Cats Sleep on SFF: Steven Barnes

John Hertz says:

I took this photo at Worldcon 76 and submit it for “Cats Sleep on S-F”. Brother Barnes is one of the coolest cats I know.

(Hertz adds that he explained the “Cats Sleep” series to him and has Barnes’ permission to publish the photo.)

Cats Sleep on SFF: Derelict

Kit M. Harding’s subject wasn’t that enthusiastic about joining show business —

I finally got the other cat to cooperate! This is Rorschach, who belongs to one of the other roommates, and was not best pleased to find me sticking a book under his head. The book is Derelict, by L. J. Cohen.

Cats Sleep on SFF: Supernova

Nina Horvath says:

May did it again, this time using a bunch of books as a bed. This was the time when I finally came up with the thought of tidying up my sofa …

Some books you see:

Cats Sleep on SFF: American Gods

Christopher Kovacs’ cat picks out a soothing spot on the bookshelf:

Shadow the kitten squeezes into a resting space next to his namesake Shadow in American Gods, The Monarch of the Glen, Black Dog, plus other signed Gaiman works…

He’s a British Shorthair.

Cats Sleep on SFF: Cone of Shame

Lurkertype sent a medical update:

Not sleeping on any, but here’s the long-suffering and over-priced TK, whom Filers rallied around to the tune of about $1300 (Sadly, the tune goes on for several more verses, between $6 and $7K). Thank you so much for the money and the messages of support, regardless of donations.

Please enjoy the maximum humiliation of Cone of Shame, shaved forearm, and giant bald tummy/udder. I wanted to make sure you guys got your money’s worth.

He’s off painkillers, no longer hiding in the closet, getting bored, and the cone comes off Wednesday along with the last of the antibiotics.

Cats Sleep on SFF: Doctor’s Orders by Diane Duane

Robin Reid brings us —

The second of our three SJW credentials on sf! (Same bed, different cat).

We won’t be able to get the third who is semi-feral because the only image we’d be likely to get of her would be that of a chubby calico departing the room hurriedly!
