My Cat Likes to Sleep

My cat likes to sleep in the morning.
She naps on my pillow till ten.
She’ll then grab a nibble of breakfast
and move to the couch in the den.

She’ll snooze on the sofa till noontime,
and then, for the rest of the day,
she’ll drowse in a puddle of sunshine
and slumber the daylight away.

At sundown she strolls to my bedroom,
and spends the whole evening in bed.
Her rest is important, for she’s got
a long night of sleeping ahead.
