Tabby Tuesday: To Rest Or Not To Rest

Happy Tabby Tuesday everyone! As you can tell, I can’t decide whether or not I want to rest or I want to take off on a rip n’ run. I’m sort of leaning towards the rip n’ run thing, that is if it’s not too late. Sometimes the nap time thing gets pretty insistent!

It’s somewhat of a routine for me though, really, it’s very routine. I love to rip n’ run when it’s daylight or when it’s dark. I know, I know, it sounds like that’s an all day thing, but it’s really not. I love to rip n’ run when the Mom first gets up in the morning. She is up and at it before the Dad. The first thing the Mom does is brush me. The second thing the Mom does is put out all fresh water and I always have a big drink to start the morning. Then, then, then it’s rip n’ run time! So see, it’s not an all daylight thing at all.

Of course most of the daylight time is spent snoozing since a big time rip n’ run sure wears a guy out. Then, when the Mom and Dad are ready to sleep and the lights are out it’s time again for a rip n’ run. Sometimes I go running so fast I slide around the turns on the wood floors and bump into things…and make a big bang noise. Oops!

So, that’s my challenge for now…rip n’ run or rest n’ not run. Suggestions? See ya soon. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Should you end up buying something as a result of one of those links, I might get a little sumpin’ for my treat fund.

we would love to do both at the same time…. but that is difficult right?

We think you should do both, Simon! Those runs are most fun after the people go to bed though …

This is hard to decide, Simon, but I am sure you will figure it out!

Can’t rest with eyes wide open, so we’d suggest the rip ‘n run thing!

Boy, Simon…Do your sisfers ever mention the noise at night? Or does Brian council you?

Come play with us, we can’t stop ripping and tearing around, even though we need to stop and rest.

So glad that rip and run is so much fun Simon. Sounds like you are good at it. You all have a super day.

Looking like the “rip & run” has “run & left” right now Simon LOL

How about a nice long nap so you have even MORE energy for the rip-n-run??????

Hugs, Teddy

Those eyes definitely say the rip ‘n run is coming, we think!

It’s just how you’re wired and your peeps know that. They would love uninterrupted sleep, but I don’t see that happening until you’re much older.

Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. My best to your peeps. ♥

Brian,

What decisions! I just spent 100 minutes on my elliptical, so I’m ready to rest n’ not. 🙂

That’s a difficult choice. It’s always fun to get in a little rip n’ run, but resting n’ not running is also enjoyable. I’ll think about it as I take my nap.

With that look in your eye, I think rip-n-run should be first!

Well, we did hear last night on the news that taking a nap at least twice a week is a good thing for the human heart. Wonder how that works with us dogs and cats? We have the rip ‘n run urge every day right before and right after dinner – uh, that would be Misty and Timber. Lightning has lost his rip ‘n run:(

Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber

The human here says rest n’ not run. The kitties say rip n’ run. So we’re no help!

Naps can come later! That’s what i say.

Mudpie loves to rip n’ run too! It always amazes me that she’s so agile at her size…

You’ve got wild eyes, Simon. I think you are going to rip and run!

Cathy Keisha

Aaah, I remember those days. Enjoy the rip n’ run times. Of course sometimes I get the urge too for a minute or two.

Rip and run, Simon. That’s our recommendation.

Fraidy Cats!

molmol! Simon, we say rest now and wait until your folks are asleep to do your rip ‘n run 😀 maybe set something up first so you can make a big bang 😀

Hmmm – so this rip n’ run thing is something many cats do? I thought it was just our Josie, who will suddenly take off as if she is being pursued by the Devil himself. And it usually does end with a slide and a crash!

Gracie says resting is the way to go, Simon. Ava, however, votes for ripping and running! 🙂

Well, I would totally do both while you are still young. These days I usually stick to the “rest n’ not run”, but this morning I did have the urge to rip n’ run ’cause the rains have cooled things off nicely around here; t’s not hot like it was a few weeks ago where I melted. Winks.
