If you thought you were the most sleepy person in the world, we have some bad news for you. This honorific title belongs to your chonky boi who’s used to sleeping more than 18 hours…
18 hours, wow! It’s pretty much, don’t your think so? Consequently, you see that your habit of sleeping off at the weekend every sleepless weekday minute can’t even compare with your cat’s luxurious sleep life.
Notwithstanding, there is an even more stunning cat sleep feature than that one. Of course, we mean curious positions your cat buddy takes falling asleep and what each of them might mean.
Therefore, in this article, we’d like to learn some little secrets about the most common cat sleep poses.
As always, our team would love to ask you to grab a cup of hot chocolate and wrap your knees with a warm fat cat to make our little voyage even more pleasurable!
Few people know this, but cats did their specific facepalms before it margins into the mainstream! (Perhaps this meme’s author was inspired precisely by this cat sleep pose?).
Nonetheless, the facepaw nap position doesn’t mean you did smth that dumb that your cat wishes he didn’t see. Accustomed way, everything is simple & prosaic.
Your purr one is just tired and doesn’t want to be disturbed. He covers his face with paws to protect himself from everything that’s going on outside of his sweet dreams.
So you better not wake up your cat during this time. Of course, if you don’t want him to be angry and grumpy all day.
2. Human-Like Sitting
This sleep position is one of the most man-like. It can remind you of yourself falling asleep in front of the TV or while reading a not truly absorbing book. We bet these are point-to-point pictures, where only the remote control and chips all over the floor are missing.
Unlike the facepaw pose, the cat usually doesn’t dive into a deep sleep or even nap in the human sitting one. He chills in such a semi-sleep position, always ready to fight with other predators and smth they can perceive like predators.
3. Extremely Curved Croissant
Lying down like a well-baked croissant is (beyond the shadow of a doubt!) a favorite pose of your beloved cat. The thing is that relaxing in such a sleep position helps your cat to accumulate more warmth, giving your cat a secure feeling.
Sometimes it may mean that your cat is a bit anxious and unsure of his safety. Hence, now more than ever, don’t stint on snacks & affection for your furry pet.
4. The Belly Show
Usually, there are mainly two reasons your cat is sleeping on his back show that chonk round belly.
Firstly, it means that your cat trusts you because the belly is a high-vulnerable part of his body. (He knows how hard you want to tickle that plump bun; don’t try to hide it…).
And secondly, it’s just hilarious because your cat is undoubtedly fat as hell, so his belly in such a pose looks like a furry globe, isn’t it? Don’t make a mistake; we love cats of all sizes!
5. Fresh Baked Bread Loaf
We are continuing the bakery theme. Some of the cats’ sleep poses remind us not only of croissants but bread loaves.
And you can’t disagree that it’s one of the cutest cats’ nap poses, especially for those who have a vivid fantasy and can see a piece of the big clumsy loaf.
In this position, sitting upright with front paws tucked under the belly, a cat usually has a light, quick nap rather than a deep heavy dream.
Besides, the cat loaf pose signifies the cat’s contentment. But if he has his eyes closed or doing that strange slowly blinking, then you can know for sure your cat is unbelievably happy and calm.
Seeing the cat in this pose makes you unconsciously say “ohhh” and other admiring sighs. In such minutes, your chonk reminds you of puma on the eponymous brand (the puma that loves to eat with all its soul and heart) and also feels extremely relaxed and cozy.
7. Cuddled up in a Blanket
Not every cat enjoys cuddles. In this case, they choose other sleep poses and other ways to get and manifest love.
But some meow-buddies are obsessed with being tucked in blankets for a reason.
As cats have strong instincts, it’s normal for them to sleep in a place they feel safe & warm. And is there a safer place than a place under the blanket?
8. King of the Hill
Every cat person knows that fantastic time when your cat’s lying on your chest singing his sweet purr serenade. Even though there is always a fly in the ointment… And you know that after the lovely stage mentioned, you need to lie a few decades without making the tiniest movement to avoid disturbing your cat.
The good news is that lying on your chest means your cat loves you and is comfy with you.
The bad news is that you still can’t move, your body suffers from numbness, and this little boy isn’t that little, but fat and heavy 🙁
9. Mommy’s Acrobat
This one is the oddest pose on our list. In this position, your cat has elongated in different directions, and his head twisted around, so it sometimes seems you need to call an exorcist or something.
But… let’s be honest! Don’t you sometimes sleep like a gymnast doing his best show and wake up not knowing what’s a year today and who’s the President?
So don’t blame your cat for being such an odd furr ball. Just love him the way he is, and let all sleeping positions be!
Please, share this article with your cat-fan friends, unraveling the mystery of extremely curved croissants and freshly baked bread loaves… 🙂
