cat sleeping (thunder)

thunder is the wonderful house cat where I was housesitting in sebastopol.
whenever thunder comes in and rubs up against me, I can't help but singing 
"and he strikes (dah dah dah)… like THUN....der ball!!"

ginger, the dog, is completely devoted to thunder….I don't totally understand the dynamic between them-  when ginger is alone in the house, she gets the dog bed, but as soon as thunder enters the cat door, ginger  relinquishes the bed to thunder, and finds a place on the floor.

I love watching cats and dogs sleep, the little twitchy movements of their paws and faces-  the unknowable mysteries of the adventures they have in their sleep.
