Knitting the Raveled Sleeve

By the time you see this post, I’ll have been in Sedalia for a couple of days. Fortunately, Rhubarb was kind enough to make himself available for photographs before I left.

He’s still one of the most peaceful sleepers around.

Not just the expression on his face, though that’s delightful enough. But he stays in one position for longer periods of time than most cats. Certainly more than anyone else in our crew other than Rufus.

Nor does he always sleep alone. As we’ve seen in the past, he frequently cuddles with Yuki. Or perhaps “is cuddled by Yuki” would be a better way to put that.

Yuki does often use Rhubarb as a pillow–stability is a virtue in one’s headrest after all–but sometimes he just extends a paw or two, letting Rhubarb know he’s there without getting all demanding.

  1. He’s very much like our large, yellow Mystery. The only thing is that at breakfast time, Mystery has a penchant for kneading human heads, extending his sharp little claws. Only the heads. The rest of the time he is an icon of angelic tranquility.


    • I guess it’s a yellow/orange cat thing. Rhubarb does have an annoying tendency to walk on and/or knead heads of humans he thinks are in danger of oversleeping.

      Though I suppose he could be considered an expert on the subject of extended sleep…
