A Matter of Perspective: Letting Sleeping Cats Lie!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

We are well aware that the original phrase is "letting sleeping dogs lie" which means, To leave things as they are; especially, to avoid restarting or rekindling an old argument; to leave disagreements in the past.  However, we think the word "cats" works too.  It is all a matter of perspective, why dredge up the past?  Happy Friday!

That cat is leading a charmed life, Alexandra.  And, it looks a lot like my Rueben.  I had to do a double take.

I found the email you sent me a couple days ago in my "spam" folder.  I have no idea how it got directed there.  Anyway, I am looking forward to lunch at Biba's.

This is the second time I have written this comment here.  The first one was blown up because ActiveRain said it was "Under heavy load."  I had to check the stars to see if my suspicions were confirmed with all this missed communication stuff.  Yep, Mercury is retrograde!

I agree with you. Nothing can change it so it is a waste of energy dwelling on it. Love that picture of Quincy. That purple throw or whatever it is, it's gorgeous.

Sharon Lee That purple throw is an afghan I knit. And it is time I knit a new one. Quincy is nice and cozy.  A

Myrl Jeffcoat AR keeps us on our toes, and Mercury being in retrograde eases the pain of it all?

I want to know what the cat is sleeping in/on. Do you knit? It's beautiful.

Hello Alexandra and Ron - here's to perspective.  I am sure Quincy agrees.  Just as soon as he wakes from his cat nap.

I love it! My mother sent me to a strict German knitting teacher when I was 7 (almost 60 years ago!) I love to knit! I taught Dave to knit as hand therapy when he lost a finger in an accident, and of course he is a master. Yes, the cat definitely looks spoiled. Beautiful afghan.

What a lovely picture, Alexandra. All of my cats have loved to sleep under a blanket that way too. And we've used that expression "let sleeping cats lie" in our household for decades since we've always had at least one cat in the house.

Quincy does live a charmed life. And, he deserves every pampered moment. He looks so adorable snuggled under your purple afghan.
