Ruby Tuesday – Flat Ruby

Ruby Sitting I

From my vantage point in the center of the kitchen, I can keep track of everything on my left . . .

Ruby Sitting II

And on my right. But this sitting up thing is way too much effort.

Flat 1

So, now, I am conserving maximum energy with my Flat Ruby approach.

Flat Ruby II

I can still keep track of everything on my left . . .

Flat Ruby III

And on my right, all while utilizing little energy resources.

Asleep Ruby

Oops. Might have my energy levels just a little too low now.

    Ayla does the “flat out” thing, too, but it’s usually reserved for her “I’m being ignored, so I’ll ignore you, too” act.

    Don’t worry, if anything drops your keen Sibe sense of hearing will be on it in an instant…we have more than just sight, you know.

    Ruby you are so sweet. You are always on guard to make sure the humans are doing what they are supposed to do.

    That is a hard job.

    What a cutie! Sitka does the “flat” thing all the time, but it’s Texas, so she does have to conserve her energy when it’s hot outside. 🙂
