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!

Cats Sleep on SFF: Mindjammer

BravoLimaPoppa3 here —

— with my SJW credential, Lola the cockapoo. She’s 8 lbs of love that only seems to meet friends, and a lot different than my usual 60+ lbs of Bouvier Des Flandres. Seems to lack a Bouvier’s bleak and dark sense of humor for one.

Anyway, she’s sleeping “on” 2 RPGs (Mindjammer and Sufficiently Advanced 2nd ed.) 2 favorites (Tuf Voyaging and The Quantum Thief) and one in progress A Succession of Bad Days.

Cats Sleep on SFF: The Empire Strikes Back

Von Dimpleheimer returns to those thrilling days of yesteryear:

I can’t answer the call to provide more photos of cats on SFF, but what about cats on SFF fans during the Golden Age of SF–when they were 12? Whiskey passed away decades ago, the couch and VHS tapes (one of which was The Empire Strikes Back) are long gone, but I still have the blanket that my mother made from my childhood t-shirts.

P.S. Judging from the box of tissues and that I was lying on the couch with a pillow and blanket, I must have had a cold. Sadly, I do not recall that applying a cat to the torso hastened my recovery. But such a potentially groundbreaking medical treatment should not be dismissed from one data point, so I recommend Filers test it for themselves.
