Red Cat snores. Purdy apparently has nightmares and makes noises like he is in trouble, so I gently wake him up. But the biggest snorer of all was the late Guard Cat. That cat would often sleep right behind the stereo speakers with an opera playing and snore over the loudest tenor or baritone aria. How he could even sleep with that thing blasting in his ear beats me. But there was one time I was downstairs sewing, at the far end of the house. I heard a terrible snoring coming from upstairs. I knew that my husband was taking a nap, and my thought was, "My word! In our 38 years of marriage (at that point), I've never heard him snore so loud!" He had had a stroke, so I went upstairs just to check on him. And it wasn't him at all. It was Guard Cat! And I heard it loud from like 40 feet away around the corners and all!
