Doing things when you want to do them (or not), and playing when you feel like it, that's cat-tirement!

However, I believe the cats are thinking they will get more attention and feeding with all of our new free time.

Wow, that's a long week! If I were working 30 days a week, I would have retired long ago.

Cat-Tired will be so much better than the Dog-Tired that happens way too often while working!

I'm looking forward to escaping from my CAT-atonic state at work before it does.

I have nothing to complain about now--no stress (as I'm completely unengaged now), no issues, but still can't escape the desire to be doing something else somewhere else all day...like this (from the RetiredSyd blog, she's in Thailand)...

Ooh, Thailand hadn't been on our short list until now. Looks great!
