Cats Sleep on SFF: Order of the Phoenix

Mark Hepworth introduces two cats who seem unexpectedly relaxed around a giant owl…

This is Luna (left) and Lily (right) who were named by the big Harry Potter fan in my house. They are dozing with Order of the Phoenix plus a bonus Hedwig cushion.

Cats Sleep on SFF: Bryony and Roses

Jules Bertaut improves the mind of a visiting cat:

This is Slider, sleeping next to and washing on Oor Wombat’s Bryony and Roses.  She isn’t my cat, she belongs to a family friend (my lease is no pets, alas).  She’s so named because she enjoys dashing around and sliding on the wood floors.

Cats Sleep on SFF: Old Fanzines

Steven Johnson remembers:

Our late Triska, as he (apparently) pondered the cover of Maneki-neko, February 11th, 2011.

Thanks for running the Cats Sleep series, which inspired me to look around for some misplaced jpgs, including this one.

Cats Sleep on SFF: The Girl in the Green Silk Gown

Jennifer Brozek’s cat was sleeping, originally —

This is Mena. I put Seanan McGuire’s The Girl in the Green Silk Gown ARC down and forgot where it was. Mena shoved it over and went to sleep. I don’t think she’s happy I woke her.

Cats Sleep on SFF: Within the Sanctuary of Wings

Doctor Science guides us through what might be called the game of cat and dragons:

This is Sneakers, age 18 years 7 months, sleeping on (or next to) Within the Sanctuary of Wings. The dragon bedspread is from Full Moon Loom, btw.

The picture of him with The Silmarillion is from April 2008, when he was much younger and much larger, but clearly ahead of his time when it comes to sleeping on or near SFF.

Sneakers has been fading for a while and we really thought he had reached the end of the line last week, we were getting ready to make The Call. But he’s now on appetite-stimulating medication, is eating (etc.) again, and definitely acting like there’s life in the old boy yet. He’s a self-rescue who turned up at our door in December 1999 aged about 10 weeks (so-called humans used to dump pets in the fields next to our house), saying “Bastet sent me”. I’m allergic to some cats, but not him.

Cats Sleep on SFF: Space Opera

Lis Riba’s cat is really into books:

She may not understand prepositions, but Small (inherited from Stephanie Clarkson ) is definitely a diva. So, when she saw the title of my current read, she had to check it out.

Plus, a more posed photo so everyone can better admire her. 🙂

Cats Sleep on SFF: Digital Divide

Kit M. Harding took this photo of an interloping catnapper:

Technically Angleton belongs to one of my roommates (and yes, I did get permission from her to send him in), but he’s decided my bed is a swell place to nap, so I thought I’d snap a pic. The book is Digital Divide by K. B. Spangler, one of the great gems of recent self-publishing.
