The Fine Art of Cat Napping

Today Ray, expert snoozer, demonstrates various techniques for napping in the workplace.

1. The Using The Keyboard As A Pillow While Dangling Your Legs Off the Edge of the Desk technique:


It must be pointed out that this technique is not for the novice, because it involves knowing precisely where your center of gravity lies - knowing exactly how close to the edge of the desk you should position yourself to get the free flow of air around your legs and tail, without allowing your body weight to pull you gradually over and onto the floor, which would cause a very rude and possibly traumatizing awakening. This knowledge can only come from months, possibly years, of napping experience.

2. The Using the Scanner As A Pillow Technique. Self explanatory.


3. The Using the Notebook As A Pillow Technique combined with The Full Body Blowout Power Nap in the Sweet Spot Between the Keyboard and the Monitor:


Feel free to try these techniques in your own workplace (at your own risk) or use them as a springboard to come up with your own napping ideas.

Happy snoozing!

Melanie, I tend to agree with your assessment; we DO need more naps! (Frodo is a cutie, and it looks like he knows a comfy place to nap when he finds it!

Hey guys! It’s nice to see that you’re spending your valuable computer time surfing the more educational sites - like my blog. I’m quite honored. Hey, does your mom know you’re on the computer? j/k! Love, Aunt Karen
