I am knackered, kaput, so tired. Yes, it is an exhausting life as a feline. We are constantly working, no rest. As soon as I wake in the morning my hard tiring day begins. After a sleep I have to use my energy for a wash. Not just a quick wash, no, a thorough lick everywhere. Every hair of my fur must be cleaned from top to bottom, Afterwards I am completely exhausted, and so I must take a sleep to recover from the exertions, preferably in a high place to be able to overlook my world should I awake in between.
After this refreshing sleep, another wash in required, you can never be too careful. It could be that there are still traces from yesterday’s meal and it is not advisable for other felines to notice, they would become jealous. And so life goes on, and another sleep for a few hours is required. Life as a feline is so tiring but in the deepest of my dreams I hear the sound of a tin opener. I force myself awake and sniff the air which leads me to the place where Mrs. Human keeps the tins of tuna fish. She fills my bowl. Although I can hardly stay awake, I force myself to eat the food she has organised. I now feel very tired, my paws can hardly carry me, but I manage a walk to one of my favourite sleeping places, not without having a good lick before hand. I encircle my bed three times, which adds to the exhaustion, and then rest my weary head on my paws to recover from the exertions. and I sleep.
Some hours later I am again awake and must have another lick. It is now the hardest part of the day. I have only an hour left and I begin to search. Eventually I find what I was looking for, a nice new place to sleep. My sleeping cushions are placed in stratigic positions, but the last and final sleep of the day is the sleep that needs silence to enable relaxation. I meditate an hour about the meaning of life and decide its meaning lays in the world of sleep and relaxation. Without it I would be lost, and so I rest my weary head, not without having a final lick, and sleep.
Oh the exhaustions of a feline life, we really know the meaning of the word knackered.
