Hey Spooky, you’re soaking in it!


Spooky has been taking full advantage of the sunny days we’ve been having this week by spending alot of time soaking up the afternoon sun. He loves sitting and sleeping in the sun beams that pour into the kitchen and always seems to find the primo spot for maximum soak and toasty-ness.

Apart from creating a warm place to nap, light plays an important role in regulating a cats biological clock. The cats daily rhythms that control sleep, hormone output and other functions are influenced by light. A cats yearly rhythms are also influenced by the amount of daylight which include seasonal shedding and reproductive heat cycles.

Here’s Spooky ‘soaking in it’ and keeping warm on a cold winter’s day while also working on his biological clock.

Awake, but with no intention of moving from this ideal spot.

Spooky is yawning here, but if Cats could sing they might look like this as they belt out a classic rock tune like ‘Here comes the Sun’ by the Beatles?
