I envy my cat's ability to fall asleep, anywhere, under almost any conditions, then wake up to take in the surroundings when it suits her and fall back into somnolence again a moment later. I'd like to be able to move in and out of sleep like that: a light doze here, a power nap there. I usually have to take my sleep in good-sized chunks for it to be effective.

I rest my head on my cat... I hear her tummy gurgling. A little farther up, I hear her heartbeat, the pace a little faster than my own. Like the back-forth-back-forth of a watch's escapement. I hear her start to purr. I think, "cats are incredible beings," and that somehow reminds me that people are, too.

Thank you for this. It made me smile, because I woke up this morning with a Mayacat laying on the pillow beside my head purring. That's such a comforting feeling, even with the cat fur in my nose. ;)
