Cats Sleep Anywhere

Cats Sleep Anywhere is a little book illustrating the poem by Eleanor Farjeon.

Cats Sleep Anywhere
   Eleanor Farjeon (1881 - 1965)   

Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair,
Top of piano, window ledge, in the middle, on the edge.
Open drawer, empty shoe, anybody's lap will do.
Fitted in a cardboard box, in the cupboard with your frocks.
Anywhere! They don't care! Cats sleep anywhere.

Here's a kitty sleeping on a window ledge. I love the pattern the curtains make.

Where else do cats sleep? On rocks.

On the stairs makes some sense.

But on a car windshield? Well, the poem is called Cats Sleep Anywhere.

Giraffes don't sleep anywhere, but they do generally remain standing while they sleep. I wonder if Giraffes #276 are getting ready to take a nap?


  1. Aawwww, gorgeous pictures!


  2. Happy Patriots Day! I just don't get to do much of anything anymore~~ sigh.

    I love coming here & the pictures are so pretty. The one on the piano looks like my Hawkeye.
