THE ART and SCIENCE of SUNPUDDLES, Part 1

Choosing the proper sunpuddle for your afternoon nap is a science.  Or purrhaps it is an art.  Science, or art ~ whichever you choose to call it, I wish to offer a few suggestions, all based on years of experimenting and experience.  Clockwise from top left: (1) The sun is round, copying that position with your furry body provides maximum exposure. (2) I am lucky to have a skylight and as high noon passes, light filters through and it gives a long and narrow area for sunpuddling, yet I am able to keep my eyes in shadow for more and better rest.  My suggestion is that you find the largest window facing westward, observe the sun for a day or two as it beams through and create your own purrsonalized nap-plan.  (3) As the sun lowers on the horizon, you may wish to change your position from round to rectangular. (4) And possibly the most important position of all ~ a warm butt is a happy butt.

  2. Thanks for that great info. There isn't much sun today so we won't get to try these great techniques out until Mr Sun comes back.

  3. that is great advice. the sun is weaker now as it is going on for winter, so the angle of body is most important.
