These pictures were taken about once an hour starting around 12 noon, all on the same afternoon. Apologies for the darkness of the last ones. ย The afternoon light was fading, and no flash was used in order to not disturb the napping mancats.


Hour 1


Hour 2


Hour 3


Hour 4


Hour 5


Hour 6

The nap continued for about another hour or so…until the sound of a can of stinky goodness being opened woke the mancats from their deep slumber. ย Mancats are known to never miss a meal. ย

  1. You must have been very sleepy boys as you were asleep for so long. We hope that you didn’t miss your dinner and your Mom had saved you both something delish.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  2. You two mancats are just the best. That is a long time to sleep even for a cat. That must be a very comfy bed. You all have a great day.

  3. The Staff just loved this and says why can’t me and Tigger do that? Sheesh!!!!

  4. what a busy day you guys had…

  5. What a great way to stay warm on a cold Sunday! We have never done that.

  6. Wow, you both stayed snuggled for a long time! Very sweet. Uh, but what were you up to before that, that obviously exhausted you both so much? ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. They are just the cutest little brothers ever!!! Now *that* is a long winter’s nap ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. You two sure look cozy and most happy!

  9. Those pictures are precious, especially the very first one. And you are soooo right about not missing that meal. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. You boys are just TOO DANGED CUTE! All cuddled up – keeping each other nice and cozy – no wonder you slept the day away until the stinky goodness showed up!

    Hugs, Sammy

  11. Awwww they look so sweet!!!!
    แƒฆ husky hugz แƒฆ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!

  12. You two are like two peas in a pod ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Oh my gosh! Just LOOK at all the cuddlin’ goin’ on at your house. If I were to come over, do you think that I could cuddle, too?


  14. Those pictures are a wonderful record of your afternoon spent napping away. We love the close snuggles. You two do love each other. Were you litter mates?

  15. Aw. Love it! My cats would never sleep that close to each other. And a six-hour power nap! Your man-cats could go for the gold if napping were a competitive sport.

  33. You are too adorable!

  34. I so enjoyed this! You guys are the cutest! I’m glad to see my cats aren’t the only ones who sleep the day away. I just wish they cuddled together the way you two do. Great pictures!

  43. That was one long nap! I think Binga and Boodie have maxed out at about an hour.
